A word from our Chairperson
Disciplined ethical investment with a heart for the Church’s mission
This is the Board’s new summary statement of what UFS stands for and is committed to.
It confirms our commitment to the mission of Christ in our Synod, the reason that UFS exists.
It confirms our commitment to earning strong returns to benefit all of us across the NSW & ACT.
It confirms our commitment to the ethical investment principles of the Synod, which are an important aspect of how the Church’s mission is lived and delivered.
We believe that everyone we deal with should expect the best of us in all situations. This requires that we live our long-held values of integrity, compassion and professionalism. It also requires a commitment to sharing knowledge and information with one another and being receptive to new ideas and willing to receive constructive feedback. Therefore within UFS, in our interactions with service providers and in our dealings with all the members and entities of the Church, we aim to foster a culture of openness to build strong and satisfying relationships.
It’s easy to put words on a page. As Chairperson of UFS, I look forward to working with the Board, staff and all other stakeholders in UFS to ensure that they are not just words, but the reality of who we are.
We want to make a difference! We want to see the world changed by the gospel of Jesus Christ, lived out in the Church.
