About Wespath

The mission of Wespath (formerly the General Board of Pension and Health Benefits) is “to care for those who serve by providing investment and benefit services according to the principles of The United Methodist Church.” Wespath administers pension plans that help secure the retirement futures of clergy and lay workers. It invests in a socially responsible manner and participates in shareholder advocacy, proxy voting, portfolio screening and community investing.
