“True treasure comes when we use our resources in a way that honors our values and purpose." ~ Rachel McDonough, CFP®

Investing & Faith: The Impact of Faith Based Investing

This newly-released book, Investing & Faith: The Impact of Faith-Based Investing, is a collaborative work that pulls together insights from 12 industry leaders. We hope it will be a blessing and encouragement to you. I was honored to contribute Chapter 7, “The Stewardship of Faith-Based Investing.”

“Sustainable, responsible and impact investing (SRI) in the United States continues to expand at a healthy pace. Total US-domiciled assets under management (AUM) using SRI strategies grew from $8.7 trillion at the start of 2016 to $12.0 trillion at the start of 2018, a 38 percent increase. This represents 26 percent—or 1 in 4 dollars—of the total US assets under professional management.”1

True Treasure gives a refreshing, thoughtful, yet practical look at the world of personal finances. I was encouraged, challenged and educated about my approach to my own financial life. Using real life stories, experiences, reflection, and proven financial tools, McDonough has managed to make our financial lives speak a new language, the language of what it means to have real wealth, the type of wealth that results in an abundance and fulfillment that radiates in who we are and our true calling and purpose in life.  This book is a must read for anyone who is serious about attaining a wealth that will truly last forever!”
