It’s the world’s first actively managed ETF for biblically responsible investing.

Previous faith-based ETFs in the market have all been passive ETFs that track specified indices.

Inspire Tactical Balanced ESG ETF (NYSE: RISN)

However, the new Inspire Tactical Balanced ESG ETF (NYSE: RISN) takes the actively managed route for generating outperforming returns.

The ETF invests in long-term opportunities in the US large-cap stock market, but subject to lower volatility.

As with other ETFs from the faith-based investment manager, the ETF utilizes the Inspire Impact Score to seek out biblically aligned companies. These represent an opportunity to invest in accordance with biblically responsible investing (BRI) principles.

Inspire Investing created the globally recognized Inspire Impact Score. It measures the biblical alignment of investors’ portfolios according to Biblically Responsible Investing (BRI) principles.

The ETF has an expense ratio of 0.84%.

Investing process

Based on the proprietary technical analysis signals developed by fund managers Keith Chandler and Jacob Chandler, the ETF tactically re-orients the holding pattern between US large-cap stocks and US Treasury bonds, or other defensive assets.

Biblical ETFs

Inspire’s first two Biblical ETFs completed three years of trading in May 2020.

“Three years ago when we launched our first two ETFs, BLES and ISMD, a lot of people did not think we were going to make it,” said Robert Netzly, CEO of Inspire Investing, at the time. “The media ran stories postulating that there are not enough investors who believe in biblical values anymore to make funds like ours viable. Three years later, we’re still here and by God’s grace we have been very successful.”

Inspire donates 50% or more of the net profits from management fees each year to Christian ministry.
