Vatican City, Jul 15, 2021 / 09:00 am
Members of the Vatican’s Council for the Economy met in person on Wednesday and Thursday to discuss the Holy See’s final balance for 2020 and its investment policy.
The July 14-15 meeting was the first time that the body has met face-to-face since Pope Francis nominated six women to the body overseeing Vatican finances and the work of the Secretariat for the Economy.
“The subject of the meeting was the approval of the final balance for 2020 of the Holy See, presented by [Fr. Juan Antonio Guerrero Alves] the Prefect of the SPE [Secretariat for the Economy], and a reflection on the Holy See’s investment policy, moderated by Dr. Eva Castillo Sanz,” said the Holy See in a July 15 statement.
Eva Castillo Sanz, a former president of Merrill Lynch Spain and Portugal, was one of the new members appointed in August 2020.
