Welcome to The Catholic Investor!

Hello!  Welcome to my blog!  If you are an investor (or someone aspiring to be an investor) who wants to learn more about the world of investing, you're in the right place.  If you are also looking for ways to invest ethically, you are in a "righter" place.  As someone who is trying to live as an authentic Catholic, I strive to invest ethically and responsibly.  I will explore the many issues on the ethics of investing and building wealth.

Having said all that, I also want to stress that investing ethically will, by no means, hamper your success in the stock market.  I will share with you the experience I have gained through my own investing and also through the perspective of an engineer, which is my primary profession.  I will show you strategies that are backed by data and statistics.  You will learn how to beat the market year after year!

Without further ado, jump right to my posts.  Here's just a few of them!  Remember to follow me too!
