  • The investment arm of the Mormon Church revealed some of its holdings in a 13F filing on Tuesday.

  • The church has amassed a portfolio of individual stocks worth nearly $50 billion.

  • These are the top 10 holdings of the Mormon Church’s stock portfolio as of September 30.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints’ has an investment portfolio topping $100 billion that includes $47 billion invested in stocks.

The portfolio is registered with the SEC under the name Ensign Peak Advisors, and its lack of disclosures over the years recently led to it paying $5 million to settle charges that it went to great lengths to hide its investments.

The portfolio wasn’t revealed to the public until 2019, when a former Ensign Peak employee filed a whistleblower complaint, alleging that the fund shouldn’t have tax-exempt status because it doesn’t engage in any charitable activities.

In a “60 Minutes” special earlier this year, the whistleblower said that the church’s investment arm acted as a “clandestine hedge fund” disguised as a charity.

The church reports its stock holdings on a quarterly basis, and a recent 13F filing revealed its top holdings as of September 30. These are the Mormon Church’s top 10 stocks holdings at the end of the third quarter.
