Knights of Columbus Announces Plans for a New Suite of Catholic Institutional Investment Strategies
New Haven, Conn. (December 19, 2014) – Knights of Columbus, the world’s largest Catholic fraternal organization, today announced plans to introduce a suite of Catholic institutional investment strategies managed by Knights of Columbus Asset Advisors, a newly formed subsidiary of the Knights of Columbus that is in the process of registering as an investment adviser.
In 2015, Knights of Columbus Asset Advisors plans to begin providing fixed-income and equity investment strategies specifically designed for Catholic institutional investors and managed in compliance with the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) guidelines.
Chief Executive Officer and Supreme Knight Carl Anderson explained this strategic decision: “The Catholic community has traditionally been served by investment managers with a broad, rather than a Catholic, focus. We believe a Catholic firm committed to Catholic values can offer a more compelling solution for Catholic entities.” Anthony Minopoli, Chief Investment Officer of Knights of Columbus added, “What many people don’t realize is that the Knights currently manages $22 billion in insurance and pension assets. We believe these investment capabilities will translate beautifully to the faith-based market.”
