Building quality portfolios of inspiring companies that align with biblical values.
“So, whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all to the glory of God." 1 Cor. 10:31
Do not participate in the worthless and unproductive deeds of darkness, but instead expose them [by exemplifying personal integrity, moral courage, and godly character]; Eph. 5:11
Better is a little with righteousness than great revenues with injustice. Prov. 16:8
For the earth is the Lord’s, and all it contains 1 Cor. 10:26
Like many Christian conservatives I am bothered by the woke activism of many of the Fortune 500 companies. (Consider Large Cap companies). Let me ask you a question. All things being equal, wouldn't you rather invest in companies that align with your principles and values, particularly if you still received excellent performance results?
Faith-based investors have largely been underserved by secular Wall Street firms, evidenced by the nearly universal tilt toward progressive, liberal values across the rapidly expanding Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) investing landscape. There has been a definite need in the financial industry for a robust, biblically responsible alternative to the growing field of ESG screening data. Until NOW!
Inspire Insight is a new online investment screening tool that gives users instant access to biblical values data on over 24,000 stocks, mutual funds, and ETFs. The free tool released by Inspire Investing, a leader in the biblically responsible investing industry, utilizes their proprietary Inspire Impact Score™ methodology that allows users to instantly measure the biblical values alignment of their investments according to Biblically Responsible Investing (BRI) principles.
Users can screen their 401(k)s, IRAs, and other investment accounts by typing a ticker symbol or company name in the search bar at inspireinsight.com and instantly see if their investments contain unbiblical activities such as abortion or human rights issues and find alternative investments that are biblically aligned and doing good in their communities.
"It's the Google of biblically responsible investing," said Robert Netzly, CEO and creator of the FinTech tool. "Many Christian investors are surprised to learn they are profiting from and supporting unbiblical activities within their investment portfolios as there has not been adequate access to the data needed to make biblically aligned investment decisions. We are proud to say, that is no longer the case.
So, as I asked earlier, all things being equal, wouldn't you rather invest in companies that align with your principles and values, particularly if you still received excellent performance results? Our primary faith-based money manager has achieved an audited annualized return of 12.8% since 2011, net of fees, offering a diverse portfolio of screened companies allocated to 25% each of large cap, mid-cap, small cap and foreign stocks.
However, during market drawdowns like 2001, 2008, 2020 and 2022, they typically shift investments toward safer alternatives like cash, gold, inverse funds, value stocks, defensive sectors, commodities, or bonds. During bull markets, they shift more toward growth stocks and riskier sectors. They balance this risk management approach using TradeStops, a stop loss risk management system.
“The results of the study found that the [biblical investing] methodology of security selection resulted in an annualized outperformance compared to the non-screened benchmark.”
