Online - Faith Driven Investor Live
@
Faith Driven Investors are scattered all around the world. On top of that, a global pandemic has disconnected us even more. In a season that defaults to loneliness, we’re craving to bring people together again.

The day will represent the best content from leaders across all different asset classes of the Faith Driven Investor Movement—including Private Equity, Real Estate, Emerging Economies, Public Markets, and more.

Investors are gathering in 100 cities across the globe, and you're invited to join others who are on your same journey. Whether this conference serves as your first step or merely a rest stop, you are a part of a movement...and it's growing.

You’re busy, so we’ve made it easy. Find a screen. Find a space. Find a friend (or maybe two), and we'll bring the food.
