Feb 6th 2015

Mark Regier guest edits prominent SRI publication 

GOSHEN, Indiana – Mark Regier, Vice President of Stewardship Investing for Everence and Praxis Mutual Funds, is the guest editor for the February 2015 issue of GreenMoney Journal.

The issue, which is now available at greenmoneyjournal.com, focuses on the role of faith-based investing in the industry’s past, present and future, and features: 

  • Timothy Smith, Director of ESG Shareowner Engagement at Walden Asset Management, who walks readers through 40 years of social investment history.
  • Katie McCloskey, Director of Social Responsibility at United Church Funds, and Sister Nora Nash, a Sister at St. Francis of Philadelphia and Director of Corporate Social Responsibility for her congregation, in an interview that uncovers the often-unrecognized influence of Women Religious in laying the foundations for modern-day SRI.
  • Andy Loving, Financial Advisor with Just Money Advisors, speaking from an advisor and client perspective, on the importance of – and increasing challenges to – preserving the values-driven perspective in a rapidly expanding SRI/ESG field.
  • John Siverling, Executive Director of the Christian Investment Forum, on bridging the great divide between Biblically responsible investing and socially responsible investing.

Regier also pens an article in this issue, challenging readers to a fresh understanding of the distinct contributions that both environmental, social and governance concerns and values-driven socially responsible investing bring to the work of building a better, more just world. 

“It is my hope,” states Regier in the publication’s introduction, “that these articles… demonstrate how our differences, as well as our similarities, serve to strengthen the social investment movement and the impact we have on our world and the clients we serve.”
