The day-long conference was designed to bring cutting edge sustainable investing techniques to managers of diocesan, non-profit and charitable portfolios.

Speakers addresses the nature of sustainable investing, screening methods, sustainable public equity investing, sustainable fixed income investing, timber investing, and the intersection between Catholic social teaching and sustainable investing.

Cardinal Francis George of Chicago also briefly addressed the participants.

«At the World Economic Forum, I have watched for several years as sustainable investing has become an increasing topic of discussion, and I believe those principles are of considerable importance to anyone who wants to maintain profitability and ethics,» said Carl Anderson, the leader of the Knights. «The Knights of Columbus has long used a sustainable investing model. Even during difficult economic times, this approach has helped us to consistently grow our portfolio and remain recognized for excellence, with no other insurer in the United States having a higher rating than we do.»

The Knights of Columbus has $17 billion in assets under management.
