Biography

Enete has worked as an investment research professional for over 10 years for large institutional asset managers. His duties included valuing public stock securities, modeling asset allocations for billion dollar pension plans and serving as a forensic accountant for a trillion dollar bond manager. His research interests include how new developments in Biblically Responsible Investing (BRI) alter investment practice, the theology of financial planning, and how to reconcile the natural tension of a Christ follower between sacrificial giving and shrewd saving. Enete currently holds the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) and Chartered Alternative Investment Analyst (CAIA) designations. He earned a B.S. in Business Administration from the University of Southern California, an M.S. in Mathematical Finance from the University of North Carolina, Charlotte, and a Ph.D. in Personal Financial Planning from Kansas State University. Enete has been married to his wife Tammy since 2013 and has two children, Sage and Silas.
