CBIS Global was founded by Christian Brothers Investment Services in response to growing interest in ethical investment management from European Catholic institutions and other institutional investors.
CBIS provides socially responsible investment management exclusively to Catholic institutions worldwide. Today, CBIS manages $9.5 billion in assets for dioceses, colleges and universities, religious institutes and health care systems and has offices in the U.S. and Europe:
- New York
- 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.
We are a manager of managers, that is, we engage leading investment firms to sub-advise the assets in our Funds. We offer two product lines: U.S.-domiciled CUIT Funds, and Ireland-domiciled CBIS Global Funds plc (UCITS), for Catholic institutions in select countries around the world.
