For over twenty five years, Thomas Strobhar has worked reliably
to meet the financial needs of the people he serves. Moreover, he has integrated
moral screening criteria into his investment strategy in a way that few advisors
Educated at Columbia University in New York, Thomas was trained
in the tradition of Ben Graham, the "father of security analysis," whose
students include Warren Buffet, "the world’s greatest investor."
Like Graham and Buffet, Thomas Strobhar’s focus is on "value
investing," which eschews the pitfall of overpriced, glitzy stocks for the ones
whose financial condition is real and quantifiable. This strategy has served his
customers quite well even when the overall market is sluggish or even down.
It was Thomas’s knowledge of individual stocks that first
brought his attention to companies that gave shareholder money to controversial
charitable groups like Planned Parenthood, our nation’s largest abortion
His advocacy on behalf of morally responsible investing has
earned Thomas the reputation as one of the best known investment professionals
in his field. He has stood up to fight corporate involvement in pornography,
abortion, and gay marriage by speaking at corporate meetings such as Pfizer,
Merck, Target, Johnson & Johnson, Ford, General Mills, Berkshire Hathaway,
American Express, JP Morgan Chase, At&T, and Microsoft.
It was actions like this that prompted Glamour magazine to call
him "a financial whiz," and Pat Buchanan’s newsletter said he was "knowledgable
about corporate practices and labeled him "a one man wrecking crew."
Thomas Strobhar also provides stock market screening information
to a number of large professional organizations. This information helps Catholic
dioceses and religious orders comply with the United States Catholic Conference
of Bishops’ Investment Guidelines. This information has been helpful in avoiding
companies involved in immoral business pursuits especially pornography and
abortion. Evangelical groups have been especially appreciative where this
applies to gambling and corporations that support gay marriage.
Thomas Strobhar’s twenty five years of investing experience have
proven it is a myth to think that investment results have to suffer because of
an integration of moral standards. He is guided by the familiar admonitions,
"what does it profit a man to…" and "blessed is he who hungers and thirsts for
righteousness for they…" It is for many of the above reasons that individuals
and institutions such as Human Life International trust Thomas Strobhar to
invest their funds wisely.
