When we celebrated Mercy Investment Services’ 10th anniversary in February 2020, we had no idea of the unprecedented times ahead. In many ways, the past year has only bolstered our belief in socially responsible investing to address concerns and challenges facing our global community. We’ve continued to increase our investments in the Environmental Solutions Fund to address the ongoing climate crisis. We’ve directed Mercy Partnership Fund investments to COVID-relief for organizations working with underserved populations. We’ve exceeded our 10 percent commitment to impact investing, with 13 percent of our portfolio now dedicated to the Environmental Solutions Fund, Mercy Partnership Fund and green equity and bond holdings. We’ve added COVID-related concerns including equitable access to vaccines and worker safety to our corporate engagements. Just as Catherine and the Sisters of Mercy who have come after her responded to the needs of their time, Mercy Investment Services continues to do the same through our investments. We appreciate your support and prayers for our ministry.
