Investors on Board with Timothy Plan’s New ETFs
Four Biblically Responsible Exchange-Traded Funds Introduced in 2019 Have Been Popular with Investors Because of Low Fees, Flexibility and Tax-Efficiency
February 28, 2020
ORLANDO, Fla.—Nearly a year after Timothy Partners, LTD., advisor to the Timothy Plan family of funds, introduced two new Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs) that help Christians continue to honor God with their money, investors are fully on board because of their many benefits.
To close out 2019, Timothy Plan launched two more ETFs in December, bringing the total to four:
- Timothy PlanS. Small Cap Core ETF (TPSC)
- Timothy Plan International ETF (TPIF)
- Timothy PlanS. Large Cap Core ETF (TPLC)
- Timothy Plan High Dividend Stock ETF (TPHD)
For over 25 years, Timothy Plan has helped advisors and investors achieve their financial goals through a pro-life, pro-family approach to investing—not only to benefit the investor but the broader culture. Timothy Plan is firmly committed to operating with the integrity, excellence and wisdom that brings honor and glory to Jesus and is a beacon for godly stewardship in the financial community.
“The introduction of our four ETFs has been an exciting development for Christian investors,” said Timothy Plan founder Art Ally. “In the months since their introduction, investments in the funds have been growing, as people appreciate the fact that ETFs are transparent and tax-efficient, and a simple way Christians can invest and steward their God-given resources wisely.”
The first of its kind, Timothy Plan birthed the trend of Biblically Responsible Investing (BRI), which is growing rapidly and extensively. In fact, Timothy Plan has over $1 billion of assets under management.
Timothy Plan’s ETF methodology sets its funds apart from the rest. After imposing the BRI screens, strategic beta seeks to capture exposure to certain factors and exploit market inefficiencies in an attempt to deliver specific and/or better risk-adjusted outcomes, while striving to return the benefits of passive investing.
An ETF is a marketable security that tracks one of a variety of stock indices, as well as commodities, bonds or even a basket of assets. Although similar in many ways, ETFs differ from mutual funds in that shares trade like common stock on an exchange. The price of an ETF’s share will change throughout the day as they are bought and sold, without turnover costs or the tax consequences of trading common shares. The largest ETFs typically have higher average daily volume and lower fees than mutual fund shares, which makes them an attractive alternative for individual investors.
