NEW YORK — The Church Pension Group (CPG), a financial services organization that serves The Episcopal Church, announced that it will host a virtual conversation on Faithful Investing – Linking Faith and Finances as part of its ongoing Insights & Ideas series of discussions on socially responsible investing (SRI). Individuals interested in attending the event can register at cpg.org/Insights&Ideas.
The event will take place on Thursday, February 18 from 12:15 to 1:30PM ET, and will feature a panel of faith-based investment specialists who will explore the themes presented in Faithful Investing: The Power of Decisive Action and Incremental Change. Edited by James W. Murphy, Managing Program Director at The Episcopal Church Foundation, the book offers wisdom on socially responsible investing from leading experts across the denominational spectrum. Mary Kate Wold, CEO and President of CPG, will facilitate the discussion.
“While CPG takes an intentional, strategic approach to socially responsible investing, we often hear from individual congregations and other smaller groups who may not have the expertise and resources of a pension fund yet are interested in learning about how they can make investments that support their values,” said Ms. Wold. “We are excited to host this conversation with experts on faith-based investing who will discuss how congregations and individuals can manage their investments to generate positive returns while supporting the greater good. I encourage those who have an interest in learning more to join us on February 18.”
The panelists will include: N. Kurt Barnes, Treasurer and Chief Financial Officer, The Episcopal Church; Sr. Patricia Daly, OP, consultant for corporate responsibility and impact investing, Sisters of St. Dominic of Caldwell, NJ; Joseph M. Kinard, Past Chair, Committee on Mission Responsibility Through Investment, Presbyterian Church (USA); James W. Murphy, Managing Program Director, The Episcopal Church Foundation; and Christopher Rowe, Managing Director, Investments, Church Pension Group.
CPG plans to host additional Insights & Ideas conversations in 2021, details of which will be posted to its website. Videos and presentations from prior events focused on investing in economically disadvantaged communities, shareholder engagement, positive impact investing, and sustainable investing can be found at cpg.org/Insights&Ideas.
