Biblically responsible investing, Avoid, Engage, Shareholder engagement


Christianity | Religion


Christians over the last twenty to thirty years have started to discuss how to engage in investing. This has birthed the movement of Biblically Responsible Investing out of Socially Responsible Investing. There is a tension that exists within Biblically Responsible Investing between the two different ways Christians believe they should participate in investing: avoiding companies through screening and engaging with companies through shareholder engagement. Both of these can have a significant impact on the economy and specific companies. A Biblical worldview surrounding stewardship of resources and seeking to store up treasures in Heaven must be considered as Christian look at the proper way to invest. A Christian must have a healthy balance in their investment portfolio as they seek to both avoid investments that misalign with a Biblical worldview and also seek to promote change through shareholder engagement.
