Biblically Responsible Investing
Investing equals ownership. We believe you should be proud of the investments you own. That means investing in quality companies from both a financial and values-based perspective.
The first step in Biblically Responsible Investing (BRI) is to actively seek out investments in companies doing good things in the world. Companies that operate according to biblical values, such as “love your neighbor as yourself”. These companies strive to bring blessings to their customers, their employees, and the world. By investing in companies like these, you are playing a powerful role in supporting important values such as ethical business practices, biblical family values, sanctity of life, and care for the poor. We use a proprietary scoring system that rates how companies are doing within these areas.
As a steward of God’s resources, it is also vitally important to actively avoid investments in companies that are acting at cross-currents to biblical values. Many investors are shocked to discover that they are profiting from and supporting such activities as abortion, pornography, human trafficking, and other egregious practices through their investment portfolios. Avoiding investments in these areas, and telling the company you are doing so as an investor, sends a strong message to the corporate world for positive change.
One of the most effective methods for inspiring transformation through BRI is with shareholder engagement efforts. As investors, you have a right to make your voice heard in the corporate boardroom. When Christian investors collectively raise their voice with grace and truth, corporate America does listen. Boycotts are proven to have little impact, however, we have decades of history that show the direction of investor capital (even small amounts) along with shareholder engagement often does drive change for the better. Add your voice to the BRI movement and help inspire transformation for God’s glory throughout the world! We can show you how.
Great Question! We feel that this video does the best job at answering the question in the most concise way. The video was produced by Eventide who is both a friend of Teleios and one of our BRI partners. Eventide has decades of experience and has proven that BRI can often outperform the same secular investment benchmarks. We hope this brief introduction to the What? and the Why? will inspire you to consider BRI even if you do not invest with us!
