WHAT INVESTMENT FUNDS ARE AVAILABLE?
The Baptist Foundation of Colorado is pleased to offer four investments for your consideration!
Short Term Investments
This investment fund functions like a Money Market fund. A church is allowed to withdraw and deposit monies into this account. The interest rate is variable and can change monthly. The minimum investment is $1,000. These monies are used to help churches construct new buildings and therefore we can offer a rate greater than local banks. Funds are invested in a large pool of loans, and are not used to fund any individual construction loans.
Fixed Rate Investment
This investment fund functions like a Certificate of Deposit. We offer one, two, three, four and five year investment opportunities. The minimum investment is $1,000 and these investments have a fixed rate. These monies go to help churches with their permanent loans. Funds are invested in a large pool of loans, and are not used to fund any individual permanent loans.
Long-Term Investments (LTIP)
This investment portfolio includes Exchange-Traded Funds (stocks, bonds, REITs, etc) and church-loan funds. The minimum investment in this portfolio is $5,000. Due to volatility we encourage churches to not invest in this portfolio unless the church is willing to leave its investment in the portfolio for five years.
