Faith-based investors strategize for shareholder advocacy season

Mercy Investment Services and other faith-based investors gathered in early October for the Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility’s (ICCR) annual Fall conference. Mercy staff explored and collaborated on various topics impacting shareholder advocacy.

  • Defending shareholder rights in the face of growing anti-ESG policies, which resulted in decreasing support for ESG shareholder proposals in 2023.
  • Advancing worker justice and advocating for a living wage. Investors, researchers, and workers illustrated the impact income inequality can have on long-term economic growth.
  • Mercy staff served on a panel discussing the growth of Artificial Intelligence (AI) as well as its impacts on society and democracy.
  • The Racial Justice Investing Coalition moderated a session on racial justice investing and its impact on fostering a stronger democracy.

The ICCR conference provides a valuable opportunity for Mercy Investment Services to strategize with fellow faith-based investors for the current shareholder advocacy season.
