Positive Impact Investing

Positive Impact Investing

As a fiduciary, The Church Pension Fund's (CPF) socially responsible investing (SRI) strategy remains focused on working with external investment managers who possess expertise in identifying investment opportunities that offer fully competitive risk-adjusted returns while providing a positive social impact. Importantly, the primary objective of its SRI approach is to earn returns that are sufficient to ensure that benefits promised to current and future beneficiaries are available when needed. Three areas where CPF actively invests include environmentally responsible, economically targeted, and women- and minority-owned firms.

Our socially responsible investments are focused on:

  • Achieving competitive risk-adjusted returns
  • Creating a positive social impact for individuals and the environment
  • Earning returns that are sufficient to ensure that benefits promised to current and future beneficiaries are available when needed

Environmentally Responsible

The sustainability of the environment is important to us. For that reason, we continue to seek managers who possess expertise in environmentally responsible investments. We have investments in a number of funds that support and promote sustainable forestry, clean technology, and green buildings.

Women- and Minority-Owned Firms

We continually seek managers who provide access to investments that offer competitive risk-adjusted returns. Over the years, we have been fortunate to work with a number of woman- and minority-owned fund managers. We currently have investments in 25 funds that are women- or minority-owned.
