Timothy Plan Founder Art Ally to Ring New York Stock Exchange Opening Bell on October 21
October 18, 2019
ORLANDO, Fla.—Timothy Plan founder and president Art Ally will ring the opening bell on the New York Stock Exchange on Monday, Oct. 21, in celebration of two milestones in the organization’s history.
Timothy Plan is marking 25 years of being at the forefront of Biblically Responsible Investing (BRI), helping Christians achieve their financial goals while investing in a biblically and morally responsible manner. Timothy Plan also launched two new Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs) this spring.
Who: Timothy Plan founder and president Art Ally
What: Ringing of the opening bell on the New York Stock Exchange
Where: NYSE, 11 Wall Street, New York, NY
When: 9:26 to 9:30 a.m. ET Monday, Oct. 21
Why: To celebrate 25 years of Biblically Responsible Investing within the Timothy Plan family of funds, which includes 13 mutual funds and two new ETFs
“For 25 years, our mission has been to help the faithful provide for their families and build up their communities without supporting those who have unholy agendas,” Ally said. “Timothy Plan, for example, does not invest in companies that support abortion, pornography, anti-family agendas or have other agendas contrary to the teachings of Scripture—or that are actively participating in activities that may prove destructive to our communities-at-large.”
The NYSE often extends an invitation to special guests to ring the opening and closing bells to celebrate milestones or create awareness. About 90 of Timothy Plan’s friends and family will make the trip to New York City to mark the occasion, and 13 are permitted to accompany Ally on the platform. These guests will include: Mat Staver, founder and president of Liberty Counsel; Dan Celia, host of the “Financial Issues” radio and television show; and the Hon. Ken Blackwell, former treasurer for the state of Ohio.
Ally has also invited his daughter-in-law, Stephanie Ally, to attend the ringing of the bell on Oct. 21 to honor Art’s son and Stephanie’s husband, Stephen Ally, who passed away Sept. 26 at the age of 55. Stephen Ally played an integral role in the formation of Timothy Plan and for the past 25 years had worked alongside his Timothy Plan family and co-workers.
Timothy Plan was the first to successfully meet Christian investors’ needs by thoroughly researching companies to determine the actions of the firm on several levels. Because of the commitment of Christian planners and investors, the BRI movement is growing rapidly and extensively. In fact, Timothy Plan alone has reached more than $1 billion of assets under management.
The two new Timothy Plan ETFs will help Christian investors continue to honor God with their money. Timothy Plan Large Cap Core (TPLC) and Timothy Plan High Dividend Stock (TPHD) ETFs are a simple way to invest, and steward God-given resources wisely. Ally said Timothy Plan, who is partnering with Victory Capital for the ETFs, continues to fulfill its highest priority—to glorify God by striving for excellence in everything, including the new ETFs.
