    Descriptive info: Religious Organisations as Investors: a Christian Perspective on Shareholder Engagement.. Van Cranenburgh, K.. C.. , D.. Arenas, J.. Goodman, C.. Louche, Society & Business Review, Volume 9, Issue 2, July 2014.. ABSTRACT: The purpose of this paper is to deepen the discussion about Religious Organisations (ROs) potential to practise their faith by means of their investments, rather than keeping both issues separate.. The authors adopted a qualitative exploratory approach using seven cases of social shareholder engagement (SSE) by ROs.. It focused on creating knowledge from best practices.. Within the three religious organisations studied, we identified three significant features that relate to their religious nature and affect their SSE: having a structured belief system, a grassroots network and a long-term perspective.. These features can be instrumental in impacting company behaviour and society at large.. This paper invites religious organisations to review their potential for actively owning their shares in order to be consistent with their faith and create change in business and society at large.. Besides, ROs, with their unwavering belief system, extensive grassroots networks and long-term approach, are a force in the shareholder engagement field to be reckoned with by business..

Attitudes of religious organisations towards responsible investment.. Louche, C.. Arenas, K.. van Cranenburgh (2012), Journal of Business Ethics, 2012, Volume 110, Issue 3, Page 301-320.. (DOI) 10.. 1007/s10551-011-1155-8.. ABSTRACT: Religious organisations are major investors with sometimes substantial investment volumes.. An important question for them is how to make investments in, and to earn returns from, companies and activities that are consistent with their religious beliefs or that even support these beliefs.. Religious organisations have pioneered responsible investment.. Yet little is known about.. their investment attitudes.. This article addresses this gap by studying faith consistent investing.. Based on a survey complemented by interviews, we investigate religious organisations attitudes towards responsible investment including opinions, practices and the impediments for implementing faith consistent investing.. Although our results cannot be generalised because of the non-random character of our sample, six main characteristics of faith consistent investing are drawn: investing is not perceived as being in contradiction with religious values, religious values are important drivers, there is a strong community around faith consistent investing, religious investors are pioneering impact investing, implementing faith consistent investing is not without difficulties, and practices vary across regions.. The survey also reveals that faith consistent investing has many commonalities with secular responsible investors..

  • Title: Implementation
    Descriptive info: 7 Steps to Faith Consistent Investing.. Implementation Guide for Faith Institutions.. This publication supports both beginners in the field of Faith Consistent Investing by helping them to embrace this exciting opportunity and encourage those already engaged in the field to deepen their efforts.. The 7 steps of implementation are supported by examples from the field.. A self-assessment tool is part of the document and serves as a base line assessment as well as can be used for monitoring progress.. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------.. Faith Institutions and Impact Investing.. An Introduction.. Impact Investing refers to investments that explicitly aim to respond to social or environmental challenges or and to support local community development while generating.. financial returns.. This report introduces the topic of Faith Institutions and Impact Investing.. Impact investments are investments that explicitly aim to respond to social or environmental challenges, while generating financial returns.. Impact investing is not something new.. Religious institutions have been practicing impact investing for many years, more in the form however of community development than from the financial investment approach.. In this report, one will find information on the various sectors, types and vehicles of impact  ...   competition, particularly for funding of well performing microfinance institutions.. Commercial investors are driven by profitability, therefore tend to compete for the most lucrative investments first and then move down the value curve.. Non-commercial investors are driven by (sustainable) investment to alleviate poverty, opposed to purely profitability.. The entrance of commercial investors is forcing non-commercial investors to make choices to protect their investment portfolios and charter objectives by learning from, and competing with, commercial investors.. If no active management is undertaken, they risk having to scale down their investments, or even exit the microfinance market, which is contrary to their poverty alleviation objectives.. Whilst the report is primarily written for religious institutional investors, one should not underestimate the cascade effect that the initiatives of religious institutions have on their members and the civil society.. While faith institutions may struggle to invest part of their portfolio in microfinance, the exemplary role of a church, synagogue or temple might have a significant influence on its members.. Individual religious investors may often be less hesitant to change the mix of their portfolios and therefore microfinance can readily be considered as a potential alternative..
