January 7, 2018:

The new story of Faith Investment in a better world is a key element of the Geneva Agape Foundation and ACT Alliance conference in Geneva later this month.

ARC's Martin Palmer (speaking in his capacity as chair of FaithInvest) will be one of the speakers at the International Conference for Christian Investors and Development Agencies with the topic “FaithInvest: Building Bridges”.

The conference will be on Monday and Tuesday January 21 and 22, in Geneva/Switzerland.

Here is a provisional programme.

Please register here to attend.

Background and Links

The faiths are major investors. They currently have billions of dollars invested in the financial markets, some of it in order to pay pensions and support their buildings and pay their staff. This video from SIIA sets in context a movement, led by the faiths, to increase the billions of religious dollars that are also invested in making a better world.
