KJ Smith founded Ethos Logos Investments in response to an outcry from Catholic individuals and institutions for a faith-aligned employer-sponsored retirement plan that makes values based investing accessible to investors of all sophistication levels. He seeks to serve Christ by enabling Christians to expand their spheres of influence via socially and environmentally responsible investing, while edifying those investors with competent, honest financial advice and service.
Mr. Smith has spent his career investing for Catholic institutions, Fortune 500 companies, business owners, independent contractors, and individual investors. He is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER® a QUALIFIED PLAN FIDUCIARY CONSULTANT® and a CHARTERED FINANCIAL CONSULTANT®. He has a BBA from Loyola University Chicago where he majored in Finance and minored in Theology, including two summers studying abroad in Rome and Spain. He is a parishioner at the Basilica of Saints Peter & Paul in Chattanooga, TN.
KJ and his wife, Amanda - a nurse and NFP instructor with Vitae Fertility - are blessed with 5 children. KJ enjoys coaching his kids’ sports teams and spending as much time outdoors as possible.
