United Church Funds has named a new director of its socially responsible investing work.
Matthew J. Illian, who has served most recently with the Virginia-based firm VestedIn and the Virginia Impact Investing forum, will be UCF’s new director of responsible investing.
The announcement came July 23 at the UCF website.
“Responsible investing is central to our mission of helping our client churches and organizations uphold the values of the United Church of Christ in making their investment decisions,” said Charles Buck, UCF President and CEO. “Our vision is investment that creates a just world for all. And Matthew’s rich experience and expertise in the SRI/ESG world, combined with his passion for social justice, make him the ideal person to shepherd our social responsibility program, especially as the need to create a just world is more urgent now than ever.”
Illian said, “The commitment of UCF to putting faith values into action is what drew me here. I look forward to working with this team and their clients in seeking a more just and sustainable future together.”
