From the Publisher

Offering time-tested wisdom on the complexities of the investment process, this guide provides advice on how to invest in a morally responsible way. It provides information on how to screen and exclude companies according to a clear set of faith-based criteria: those who support or service the abortion industry, producers and distributors of pornography, and companies involved in embryonic stem cell research. Based on this set of guidelines, as well as the success of the Ave Maria Mutual Funds, the guide demonstrates that high returns are achievable without supporting companies that do not support similar values. Also included is insightful commentary on the current political policies affecting the country's financial state.

Pick The Right Target

SANDY FRANCIS IS LIVING PROOF that investing for retirement needn’t be complex. The co-owner of Colorado-based Veda Salon & Spa says set-it-and-forget-it target-date funds are the cornerstone of his firm’s 401(k) plan.
