Show Notes

Today many investors want their assets to do more than provide for their financial futures—they want them to reflect their faith values as well. God calls us to be faithful stewards and that means looking beyond the bottom line and stewarding the non-financial impact of our investments, too. Rob speaks with Stella Tai of Praxis Mutual Funds.

  • Praxis has a long history in working to understand the real-world impact of investing, and delivering values-aligned impact to your clients. Why has this work been so important?
  • What does “real world impact” look like and how does Praxis Mutual Funds reflect Kingdom values?
  • An important part of your work at Praxis is producing the fund family’s annual impact report - the second annual edition has just been released, hasn't it?
  • Praxis has recently adopted a new motto: “Investing together, Impacting the World.” What does that mean to you personally? What difference do you hope it makes?
