Summary

Do you know the business practices of the companies your money is invested in? How can Christians intentionally steward their money in a way that honors God, neighbor, and the world? Join Joanna Meyer as she speaks with Robin John, Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Eventide Asset Management, as they talk about faith, investing, and the moral responsibility that comes with owning stock.

Highlights

On Eventide’s values:

“Eventide strives to honor God and serve its clients by investing in companies that create compelling value for the global common good…”

On the public marketplace:

“…We saw a big need in the marketplace. We saw that investing was broken from its original purpose that God would desire it to be – especially in the public markets.”

On investing:

“…If you are investing in businesses you have to ask the question of ‘what is the purpose of business?’ If God were building a portfolio what are the types of business he would be investing in? More than just asking the question of ‘what do I not want to invest in?’ you have to ask the question of ‘what types of companies should I be investing in?'”
