The GuideStone Investment Approach
GuideStone’s staff strives to provide investment solutions that allow our clients to invest their own time into the ministry to which they were called, not into investment management.
The investment philosophy of GuideStone Capital Management, adviser to the GuideStone Funds, is as follows: We believe attractive risk-adjusted returns can be achieved through a long-term, fundamental approach that identifies best-in-class managers and allocates capital among them — all while remaining committed to Christian values.
GuideStone leverages this investment philosophy to establish a disciplined, multi-step investment process.
Engaged Shareholder Advocacy
GuideStone seeks to influence how companies interact with their employees, customers and communities.
GuideStone partners with like-minded organizations to promote social change via responsible and sustainable business practices and a strong corporate culture of ethics. We have an ongoing letter writing and shareholder advocacy campaign that is designed to influence corporations for the greater good.
By purposefully investing in organizations that seek to protect life, promote human dignity and enhance the efficiency and accessibility of life-sustaining resources, we are helping to create positive impact in the world — which we believe we are called to do as Christians.
