Early Moravian settlers practiced faith and devotion to Christ by pooling their resources. They put their resources together into the community and took back only what they needed to live productively for Christ and their brothers and sisters.
The Moravian Common Fund was built with the same spirit of community. Today you and others retain ownership of your assets while gaining a high-quality, low-cost investment solution that provides ongoing management and administration of your funds.
By combining resources in the Common Fund, we are a larger investor and benefit from economies of scale, lower total costs, and more. In addition, the investment fees that would leave the church in a secular investing scenario stay within the church to work for God. These fees fund services that your foundation can provide at no charge to Moravians.
Since 1998, the Common Fund has been a pooled investment and endowment management vehicle, which is currently managed by Abbot Downing – an ultra-high-net-worth business line of Wells Fargo that manages more than $45 billion in assets.
We are dedicated to providing Common Fund participants with superior investment returns at the lowest cost.
