LightPoint™ Portfolios are faith-based, biblically responsible investing portfolios available through Orion Portfolio Solutions!

The growing number of stakeholders in the faith-based investing space points to a growing demand for products and services that help investors align their investments with their faith values. This growth will continue in coming years with the wealth transfer from baby boomers to millennials – a younger generation that actively seeks faith alignment in their investing and spending habits.

Because of their relationship, advisors are in the best position to help their Christian clients with this alignment. Our LightPoint™ Portfolios provide turn-key faith-based investing strategies and allow advisors to focus on serving their clients.

We believe that every follower of Christ should at the very least be presented with the opportunity to invest his/her resources in a manner that is in alignment with and honors their faith values. The LightPoint™ Portfolios allow you to do just that.

Our Process

Our process begins with the construction of strategic allocations with comprehensive coverage of global equity and fixed income markets. The strategic asset allocation represents our baseline, long-term target allocation to broad asset classes for each of five target risk levels. As an independent portfolio manager, we are not tied to proprietary funds. We can research and use the best fund managers to meet our objectives.


Over more than 25 years, we have refined our screening process to have a thoughtful approach that strikes a balance between honoring faith values and adhering to fiduciary standards. Our Investment Committee examines the underlying holdings of investment managers using BRI screening data from three, independent research firms. Using data from several research firms enables us to look at issues from a variety of perspectives given that each research firm uses different methodologies to compile their data.

Our rigorous, five-step screening process gives you the confidence that underlying holdings are thoroughly vetted across a variety of sources. Instead of following a simplistic “if this, then that” quantitative approach, we dig into the data in order to balance honoring faith values with fiduciary duty. Our “discernment approach to screening” seeks to exclude companies involved in negative business activities and to identify those companies that are creating positive value and blessing in the world without sacrificing risk-adjusted returns.

Now, your clients can invest in companies whose products, services and business practices honor their faith values, while creating real blessing in the world!
