Do my investments make the world rejoice?


In the context of the malaise which hangs over the global economy Reuben Coulter points out that our investment capital has the power to drive change and standards across industries, culture and communities. He introduces Faith Driven Investor, and the concept of a spectrum from traditional profit-driven investment, through Impact Investing, to Grants. He then outlines three steps to successful Impact Investing: Signalling, Stewardship and Financing. His conclusion is that as investors, philanthropists, governments and corporates we need to act cooperatively rather than competitively if we are to bring about real transformation for the common good and the glory of God.
