CBIS PROUD TO ACCEPT INVITATION INTO CATHOLIC IMPACT INVESTING COLLABORATIVE
As a manager of Catholic assets for more than 40 years, CBIS is humbled by its invitation to join one of the industry’s premier organizations, the Catholic Impact Investing Collaborative, or “CIIC”.
CBIS was invited for membership at a new level created for financial intermediaries that support Catholic asset owners’ impact investing activities.
WHAT IS THE CATHOLIC IMPACT INVESTING COLLABORATIVE?
CIIC (pronounced “seek”) is a collaborative for Catholic asset owners and financial intermediaries around the world to share connections and exchange ideas around impact investments.
The organization’s members include a pioneering Catholic institutions representing seven countries and over $40 billion in assets that have led the way in impact investing.
WHAT IS IMPACT INVESTING?
According to the Global Impact Investing Network, impact investments are made with the intention to generate positive, measurable social and environmental impact alongside a financial return. How CIIC participants think about and approach their investment portfolios relies, of course, on the distinct values and heritage of the Catholic community.
Like CIIC, we at CBIS believe impact investing has enormous potential to contribute to the solutions our society demands.
CBIS and the CIIC
According to Jeffrey McCroy, CBIS’ President and Chief Executive Officer, the two organization’s goals are very much in alignment.
“In the end, CIIC and CBIS are each working to educate the Catholic investment community. We are honored by this opportunity to share our decades of experience with a group so committed to making a positive impact. We look forward to all we will learn from each other in efforts to serve the Catholic church.”
