The CIG Advantage

CIG is an Episcopal nonprofit which has a dual mission: to strengthen the Episcopal Church through full time, professional management of its substantial assets and to invest the Church’s corpus wisely and ethically.

CIG helps Episcopal organizations to join together in shared faith and values while realizing the benefits of scale in investing. CIG’s Value-Add:

  • A Full Time Chief Investment Officer (OCIO). Full-time investment management by an OCIO provides for timely decision making with the ability to add return and avoid risk through asset allocation and investment selections.
  • Benefits of Investing at Scale, including cost-effective fees based on CIG’s collective size and a diversified portfolio with a broader range of asset classes.
  • Episcopal Leadership in generating strong performance and preserving capital with Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) investment approaches.
  • Advocacy for the Episcopal Church’s Mission. CIG votes proxies in accordance with guidance of the Church’s Committee on Corporate Social Responsibility (CCSR). CIG engages through the UN PRI (Principles for Responsible Investment) and the Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility (ICCR).

Ethical Investing Approaches

Global events are moving the Episcopal Church – like many other thought-leading organizations – towards a greater climate and social consciousness. Church Investment Group’s focus on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) investing allows Episcopal endowments to earn comparable returns while bringing about fundamental and lasting change within the Church and the world we serve.
