COVID-19 Update: Stay the course, markets are resilient!
April 2020 Update: Our Investment Policy is built around our investment objectives. We believe that it is essential to stick to our policy, even in or especially in stressful times. History has shown that this is the prudent approach. Our Fiduciary Partner, Fiduciary Investment Advisors, provided this March 31, 2020 Market Update. See especially pages 12 through 14. February 2021: Update: Markets proved to be exceptionally resilient and equity markets are at record highs. We are still sticking to our investment policy and staying focused on the long-term. Our investment policy its not event driven, it is based on prudence.
Creation of the Southern New England Conference of the United Church of Christ
Effective January 1, 2020, the Connecticut Conference joined with the Massachusetts and Rhode Island Conferences to create the Southern New England Conference. While the Connecticut Conference has been dissolved, the Consolidated Trust Funds were created -- before the Connecticut Conference even existed -- by the Missionary Society of Connecticut (MSC), which was established in 1798. MSC has always been the Trustee of the Consolidated Trust Funds and continues to serve in this role. MSC continues to be a covenantal partner of the Southern New England Conference. Staff supporting the Consolidated Trust Funds continue to be in place and all of the partnership arrangements remain in place.
A History of Service
Since 1956, the Consolidated Trust Funds of the Missionary Society of Connecticut have been offering a convenient and cost-effective way for member churches and other eligible organizations connected with the United Church of Christ to invest their endowment and other capital resources in professionally managed portfolios.
