Problem with the Investment Universe

The investment universe is comprised of all the investment options available to you as an investor.  Whether you invest through your employers 401k, 403b, IRA or any other type of employer sponsored retirement plan or through your own investment advisor/activities, we have a big problem as a believers in the types of companies we are invested in.  The problem is we unknowingly own businesses which are profiting from or supporting immoral activities such as pornography, abortion, tobacco, anti-family entertainment, human trafficking, gambling and alcohol, etc.  Each time your employer or investment advisor purchases a mutual fund, ETF or stock on your behalf, you are buying a small percentage of a business.  If you are reading this web page chances are you would never want to directly own or invest in a business where they profit from or support the abortion industry or produce/distribute pornography.  Here lyes the problem.  As we mentioned above, when you own a companies stock, you own a percentage of the business.  If you have never screened your mutual fund, ETF's or stock portfolio through a Biblically Responsible Investing screening system, we can almost guarantee without looking your portfolio will fail a BRI (Biblically Responsible Investing) screening.  The question we love to ask is "Would Jesus be proud of or would he want to own your investment portfolio?"  Ephesians 5:11, Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness.
