We Stand Strong on Ethical Ground
Some people believe that ethics in business is a contradiction in terms. They think that in order to be profitable, a company and its leaders must abandon morality and embrace the dark, greedy side of capitalism.
"At the Knights of Columbus, we know this business model is incorrect. As a Catholic organization, we understand the value and importance of our core beliefs and the original mission of Father Michael J. McGivney. In fact, much of the strength and financial security we provide to members and their families can be attributed to our ethical, moral standards.
These standards are visible throughout the Order, from our fraternal programs and support of the Church and its teachings to the investment strategy of our assets.
"What sets us apart is what Standard & Poor's refers to as the "very conservative" approach we take in managing our $16 billion in assets," said Supreme Knight Carl A. Anderson in his 2010 address at the Supreme Convention. "We place a very high value on the society's reputation."
This means carefully planning when it comes time to invest. Our professional staff researches all transactions to insure that they fall in line with our Catholic values. If a transaction makes them uncomfortable, they don't make it.
In the end, the Knights of Columbus investment strategy is motivated by morality and not money-making. Yet, each year we remain profitable, increase our assets and stay dedicated to this vision that will keep the Order sound financially for generations to come.
"Faithful Catholics have choices when buying life insurance," said the Supreme Knight. "But they know that at the Knights of Columbus their policy is supplied by an insurer that shares their moral and ethical values and is guided in all of its investment and sales practices by those values."
