The Episcopal Church sells Russian securities

March 10, 2022
Office of Public Affairs

CORRECTION: The press release of March 1, 2022, inaccurately described the actions of the church’s investment manager in selling Russian financial investments. The sale should not have been described as a “divestment,” which is a term that has been used when The Episcopal Church formally adopts a policy of selling stocks for ethical or political reasons. This sale was a financial decision by the investment manager exercised within the scope of the manager’s authority.

La Iglesia Episcopal vende valores rusos

CORRECCIÓN: El comunicado de prensa del 1 de marzo de 2022, describió incorrectamente la decisión del gestor de inversiones de la Iglesia al vender inversiones financieras rusas. La venta no debería haberse descrito como una «desinversión», que es un término que se ha utilizado cuando la Iglesia Episcopal adopta formalmente una política de venta de acciones por motivos éticos o políticos. Esta venta fue una decisión financiera del gestor de inversiones ejercida dentro del ámbito de su autoridad.
