IW Financial Launches Faith-Based Stock Screening Program

April 22,2005 (PLANSPONSOR) - IW Financial is offering a new service to faith-based organizations seeking to more closely monitor the suitability of stocks held in their institutional investment portfolios.

The “Portfolio Alignment Report,” provides   investment committees, trustees, and others whose responsibility   includes overseeing investment management decisions with detailed quarterly portfolio analysis, according to a press release from the company.  The report looks at all stocks heldwithin a portfolio and then ranks each security within both the overalluniverse and its peer group based on values and other criteria defined by the client. 

With the program,  u sers develop customized screens that include traditional criteria such as environmental performance, human rights, labor relations, family   friendliness, alcohol, gambling, contraceptives, tobacco, and corporategovernance.  The Portfolio Alignment Report then incorporates those criteriaand analyzes an organization’s portfolio.
