Give witness

“So a prudent man is not one who—as is often meant—is able to wangle things in life and draw the greatest profit from it; but one who is able to construct his whole life according to the voice of upright conscience and according to the requirements of sound morality.”


St. John Paul II, on prudence, 25 October 1978

Profitability and Testimony

Why invest respecting the Social Teaching of the Church?

The talents received (including financial wealth) cannot be and must not be buried. On the contrary, they must be worked so that those gifts bear fruit, and, in the case of investments, adequate profitability.

What marks the difference is being able to give Christian witness in view of the specific responsibility of investing. Transparent, professional and morally responsible wealth management is set to become a primary tool to give witness of how faith can also be lived when managing investments.

Bonum ex integra causa, malum exquocunque defectu

St. Thomas Aquinas


The assets to be managed do not cease to be assets, talents, which have been entrusted to us. This makes it necessary to administer them in the best way and make them perform, with responsibility and moral rectitude, and thus be able to undertake management founded on joint responsibility (stewardship).
