"Money must serve and not rule" is how Pope Francis presented the function of money in the Church in his letter "Evangelii gaudium" (No. 58). Church organisations manage different types of investments: shares, bonds, funds, loans. These funds must be invested in such a way that the church can fulfil its tasks in the long term.

The relevant rules for the investment decision and for further management are laid down in an investment guideline.
