David Palmer, CEO at Epworth Investment Management, commented: “Though our portfolios have a low tolerance for activities that are incompatible with God’s mandate, our focus is promoting solid investments that have the potential to positively affect change in the world. This isn’t just a solution for people just looking to secure their financial future, it’s also a solution for those looking to contribute to the secure future of the planet and all people.”
Sean Taylor, head of UK intermediary sales at CGWM, added: “We are delighted to be responsible for running this first-of-its-kind Christian ethical investment solution. Like Epworth, we are passionate about investing sustainably. We strongly believe that a positive impact lies in a mixture of environmental and social gains and does not need to preclude strong investment performance.”
