An innovator in responsible investment, the Methodist Church's Central Finance Board (CFB) was established in 1960. It enables Methodist organisations to pool and manage their assets effectively. Epworth, its wholly owned subsidiary, enables it to offer its proven expertise to a wider market. The CFB and Epworth actively engage with companies on financial, ethical, social, environmental and governance performance as part of their investment decision making process.
The newly appointed David Palmer, who will become Chief Executive in January said, "Having built my career on core values based on my Christian faith, this is my dream job. I strongly believe that integrating Christian ethics into the investment process, as the CFB and Epworth have successfully done for many years, can be the springboard for a growing and sustainable fund management business."
