Koinonia Kiwisaver SchemeEthical investment: Mark Wilcox talks to Radio Rhema
There has recently been significant media interest in ethical investment issues – in particular, coverage about KiwiSaver Schemes investing in munitions manufacturers.
Mark Wilcox, General Manager of the NZ Anglican Church Pension Board, was recently interviewed on Radio Rhema on the subject of ethical investment. The Koinonia KiwiSaver Scheme, which the Pension Board administers, provides Christians with an opportunity to invest in a KiwiSaver scheme that is founded on ethical and responsible investment principles that reflect Christian values.
Mark discusses what makes Koinonia different from other KiwiSaver schemes, the Pension Board’s investment philosophy, financial stewardship, the challenges of ethical investment and the importance of starting a savings plan early.

Note also that Mark speaks about fossil fuel divestment in the latest Anglican Taonga magazine. You can learn more about Koinonia at www.koinonia.org.nz.
