There is nothing more primary than the right to life. Without it, what else matters? Life is precious and all too often, not treated with the dignity and respect it deserves. Companies that do not value life are screened out from investment consideration.



Behind faith and love of God, most people list family as the most important part of their lives. A strong and vibrant family is key. Promoting family values and investing in companies that do not violate core teachings of the Catholic Church gives our investors peace of mind.
