Christian Today: Church Commissioners announce outstanding investment results

The Church Commissioners achieved a return of 9.4 per cent on their investments in 2007. This far exceeded the return of 7.0 per cent from the fund’s comparator group for that year, the WM All Funds Universe.

WM All Funds Universe is a collection of the investment results of UK pension funds and is widely used as an independent measure of the performance of funds.
