Biblically responsible investing is the practice of making investments that do not conflict with a person’s religious belief.
After all, how can a deeply pious person invest in a cigarette company or alcohol company and then condemn those who indulge in such vices? Biblically responsible investing thus requires intensely informed investing practices.
Socially responsible investing, under which BRI falls under, is becoming a steadily growing trend. There are over 250 socially responsible finance funds in the United States.
Well over 40 of those funds are BRI-based approaches. According to a 2015 study by the Christian Investment Forum, screened BRIs perform just as well or better than unscreened investments.
So what are the obstacles? Well, the road to heaven is straight and narrow indeed for investors.
