At Talanton, we know many people have a burden for "the least of these."


The problem is that beating poverty can seem like an insurmountable task. The mere thought of it can leave you stymied. You feel the weight of responsibility to help, but you aren't sure where to start or which mission-driven organization will help you make the greatest impact.

If you believe that God blessed you with financial resources for a reason, and that His desire for you is to use those resources to make a real, lasting difference in this world, please join us by becoming part of the faith-driven investing movement.  Every Christian desires to hear God say  "Well done, good and faithful servant" (Matthew 25:21).​

Like you, we care about helping to lift people out of desperate poverty in developing countries.  That’s why we developed multiple fund options to better serve you, including unique options for qualified investors.  Our program is designed to help you make wise investments that will create jobs to help these people and bring them Hope.

Built on over thirty years of experience, Talanton was founded by David Simms (MBA and J.D., Harvard University).

David once felt the guilt from wondering how he could make an impact with the "talents" he had been given.

In the spring of 1984, David and his wife Kim were standing in a farm field in Guatemala, where he understood for the first time the power of business to accelerate the Great Commandment to love God and love our neighbor. Since that time, he has been privileged to spend his life using sustainable, finance-driven solutions to bring Hope, create jobs and transform lives for people living in poverty, principally in the developing world.

Through Talanton, David wants to help others experience the same breakthrough he did, so that those living in poverty have a real chance at Hope for a brighter future.

An important distinction between Talanton and other investment funds is our commitment to support portfolio companies beyond the initial financial investment and “new relationship phase.”  We meet regularly with company leaders/management teams for prayer and to provide encouragement and business support.  We are on the boards or are advisors for all our clients and have established meaningful relationships based on mutual respect, our expertise and shared values.  We believe this to be a blessing and our ongoing responsibility.

Contact Talanton today to hear how you can help bring Hope to people living in poverty. And, in the meantime, download our free gift, How to Eliminate Poverty.
