The new wealth management firm spearheaded by Chris McMahon utilizes innovative artificial intelligence to provide Catholic investors with transparency about their portfolios

PITTSBURGH, Aug. 3, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Aquinas Wealth Advisors℠, a wealth management firm specializing in Catholic faith-based investing, is proud to launch with cutting-edge technology heralding a new age of investment insights.

Aquinas Wealth Advisors

Aquinas utilizes an innovative hybrid robo-advisor program providing clients with details about how publicly traded companies use their funds. This service is provided free of charge at and does not require any long-term commitment from users. Website visitors are invited to submit sample information about their holdings and portfolio for an analysis by the site’s program. Following a quick review, the artificial intelligence provides an outline of causes and organizations being supported by companies within an investor’s portfolio. The result, referred to as the Faith & Finance Score, then assigns a letter grade based on a portfolio’s adherence to Catholic principles and values. Users are then invited to be advised on how they can adjust their holdings to better reflect their values through a consultation with one of Aquinas’ advisors to discuss their specific situation. Investors are also able to choose to use the information on their own.

“Across my career, clients have continually asked how they can best align their investments with their values, particularly among my Catholic clients,” said Chris McMahon, President and CEO of Aquinas. “Now, Aquinas’ state-of-the-art technology has made it easier than ever for investors to unify their deepest-held beliefs with their finances. This program empowers individuals to have a greater degree of understanding and control over where they place their money.”

Prior to founding Aquinas, McMahon established MFA Wealth, a personal wealth management firm based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. In addition to possessing three decades of experience advising clients in matters of comprehensive financial planning, asset allocation, retirement planning, and estate tax management techniques, McMahon has also been featured in publications such as the Wall Street Journal and honored with awards including the 2022 Catholic Finance Professional of The Year Award by the Catholic Finance Association.

Aquinas’ commitment to transparency allows investors to feel the security of working with a fiduciary as well as confidence from possessing a complete picture as to how their money is being used. The firm also has tentative plans to expand on its technology for use beyond a Catholic framework.
