Biblically Responsible Investing (BRI)
We know that God has called us to be good stewards over all that He has entrusted to us – including the investments He allows us to manage at any point in time. Accordingly, we should seek a good return on these investments; yet, do so within the context of aligning ourselves with His purposes.
BDC Capital Management is committed to excellence in Biblically Responsible Investing (BRI). Our research protects the moral integrity of your investments by identifying those companies whose behavior is in conflict with your deeply-held beliefs so that you can avoid being co-owners in these companies. We believe this additional diligence is a logical extension of the stewardship responsibilities God has entrusted to each of us (1Timothy 5: 8, 22).
Our BRI model utilizes positive screening to help identify companies that intentionally seek to embrace Biblical values and are a blessing to our communities. The BRI model also employs negative screening to avoid investment in companies that provide a product or financial support for abortion, pornography, or anti-family groups. We are also careful to ensure that your portfolio is not invested in companies that do business with political enemies of the United States.
Successful investing is vital to achieving your financial goals; successful Biblically Responsible Investing is intended to help you to achieve your goals and allows your investments to reflect your values – values that have built and sustained America as a great nation.
