Christian Brothers Investment Services, Inc. (CBIS) is a Catholic, socially responsible investment management firm and Registered Investment Advisor. Founded in 1981 by the De La Salle Christian Brothers, CBIS works exclusively with Catholic institutions and their advisors.
CBIS is the Catholic responsible investment firm of choice for numerous dioceses, colleges and universities, religious institutes and health care systems. We currently manage $7 billion in assets globally and have offices in the U.S. and Europe:
- New York
- San Francisco
- Rome (CBIS Global S.r.L.)
Our ownership structure consists of the U.S. Districts of the De La Salle Christian Brothers and the Center of the Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools. Owner representatives sit on the CBIS board of directors along with professionals from a variety of other industries. Founded more than three centuries ago, the Lasallian mission embodies the vision and innovative spirit of Saint John Baptist de La Salle, the patron saint of teachers. And the spirit in which the Brothers undertake all aspects of the mission is one of faith and zeal.
CBIS is a manager of managers: that is, we engage third-party institutional investment firms to actively sub-advise the assets in our portfolios. We offer two product lines: U.S.-domiciled, commingled CUIT Funds, and Ireland-domiciled CBIS Global Funds plc (UCITS), for Catholic institutions in select countries around the world.
