Brief overview

The study is dedicated to the principles of Catholic investment. The complex of questions concerning the guidelines for a value-based investment policy against the background of Catholic social teaching has so far received little attention in the literature. This neglect is astonishing, since not only the financial assets of the Catholic Church in Germany are receiving more and more attention, but also ethical-sustainable investments are becoming increasingly important. The author closes this gap in an appealing way. The treatment creates a comprehensive picture of value-based investment and the practical relevance is taken into account by the analysis of value-based investment assets.
