Company screening

Important decisions require research. But those decisions, when reached, are always better for that extra effort.

We want you to know that Everence does a lot of research before we invest your money. Our research, combined with our six stewardship investing core values, guide and govern how each dollar entrusted to us is invested.

Our core values

Our core values embrace a wide range of social concerns our Christian faith calls us to consider – as well as traditional, prudent, financial deliberations. No company is perfect, but these six values express our best expectations for corporate behavior – and provide a consistent standard for current and future investments.

Respect the dignity and value of all people

We think it is important that companies respect and support the basic human rights of all people to self-determination; to live free of fear, violence and intimidation; to lead healthy, well-nourished lives; and to have access to adequate shelter and sanitation. We expect companies to respect ethnic and cultural diversity.

Companies we support will not attempt to benefit from the misfortunes of those individuals or communities that work with them and will not take advantage of relationships with oppressive political regimes.
