Dishonest money dwindles away, but whoever gathers money little by little makes it grow.
Money is Amoral
In the grand scheme of things, money isn’t that important. It is amoral, meaning it is not inherently good or bad. It is just a tool. However, when we make a financial decision, we are faced with moral and ethical choices, whether we realize it or not. We can use our money for good or for harm; to build relationships or tear down relationships.
Values-based finance is based on timeless principles of wisdom and truth that never change. Intelligent Investing believes we must act with integrity and show compassion and are obligated to provide for the less fortunate. We believe that many historical and religious books mention the need to shun greed, to diversify your assets, to seek many counselors, and to set aside money during times of feasts (expansions) for times of famine (recessions).
Values-based finance is a lens to consider when making decisions. It is a way to align your personal and family’s belief system in a way that matches your life-long goals and eternal goals. Intelligent Investing believes that when you pass on an inheritance, you are also passing on your family’s legacy.
Intelligent Investing believes that wisdom is eternal, and basing our decisions on eternal principles is wise.
