Praxis Mutual Funds® recently launched an email series, “Invested in faith.” It is aimed at financial professionals, recognizing that as they provide counsel and comfort to clients dealing with the social, economic and spiritual challenges of the unprecedented COVID-19 crisis, they are also subject to those very same pressures and stresses.
“Behind every financial transaction are people—people with burdens and fears that should be acknowledged and addressed, as possible,” said Mark Regier, Vice President of Stewardship Investing. “We intend for our new email series to speak to the financial advisor as a person, caught as we all are, in the uncertainties of this pandemic. We hope these emails will offer an opportunity to step back and, for a few moments, lean into the faith and community of conviction that surrounds us all.”
The resource is designed to support the emotional and spiritual well-being of financial professionals. Each email includes a musical interlude, words to ponder, stories of hope and action and an excerpt from a book for further reflection.
The series is one of many efforts Praxis has undertaken to address the social, economic and spiritual challenges of the unprecedented COVID-19 crisis. Praxis was an instigator and early signatory of the Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility’s (ICCR) COVID-19 Investor Statement On Coronavirus Response. Through the Praxis Impact Bond Fund, Praxis invested in the African Development Bank’s recent Fight COVID-19 social bond, the Bank’s first bond to be listed on the London Stock Exchange and at the date of listing (April 4, 2020), the largest dollar denominated social bond ever launched in international capital markets.
