In July 2016, The United Methodist Church’s General Board of Pension and Health Benefits became Wespath Benefits and Investments.
The name Wespath was developed in 2010 and was created with two important elements in mind:
Wes – recognizes and honors John Wesley, the founder of Methodism and a strong advocate for social justice;
Path – refers to our goal of providing participants and institutional clients with a path to follow in achieving retirement, health, and investment objectives.
Wespath also evokes Wesleyan philosophical tenets such as the importance of physical health, financial security, and care for God’s creation.
Wespath reflects our Wesleyan heritage and the notion of being on the right path in all three areas in which we operate for our retirement and health plan participants, institutional investors and for The United Methodist Church.
Wespath's three agency divisions are:
