Building capital for God’s work requires prudent investments. Through the Moravian Common Fund, we provide a way for Moravian churches and agencies to invest together to strengthen their ministries.
Created in 1998, the Common Fund is a pooled investment and endowment management vehicle currently managed by Abbot Downing. Abbot Downing is the ultra-high-net-worth business line of Wells Fargo. They manage more than $45 billion in client assets.
We are dedicated to providing Common Fund participants with superior investment returns at the lowest cost. As part of this continued commitment, the Foundation undertakes a peer group study of faith-based and community foundation investment returns. For the fourth consecutive year, the Moravian Common Fund’s growth portfolio’s performance ranked number one. In particular, our growth portfolio ranked number one during the past year, five and ten-year periods ending June 30, 2016. The complete study is available here.
Despite the recent recession, the growth rate for the total value of assets under management has been remarkable. Click here to see the most recent performance report.
