Two New ETFs from Timothy Plan Empower Christians to Invest Biblically and Keep Costs Low
With Biblically Responsible and Low-Cost Options, Christian Investors Now Have Numerous Ways to Honor God with Their Resources
ORLANDO, Fla.—With the addition of two new Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs), Timothy Plan has given Christians yet another avenue to invest their money in a biblically responsible way—and at a lower cost.
Timothy Plan’s proven, decades-long approach provides believers with many reasons to consider faith-based investing, including the following:
- Timothy Plan is the oldest biblically responsible registered investment company.
- ETFs are managed by Victory Capital, an investment advisor that utilizes a smart beta investment philosophy with proven track records in blending passive and active management methodologies.
- Timothy Plan ETFs are the only smart beta—meaning that the underlying stocks are valued based on their volatility rather than the company’s size or production—biblically responsible ETFs.
- Christians experience ease of investment with most online brokerage accounts, including self-managed IRAs.
- ETFs are available to institutional and individual investors.
- ETFs complement existing Timothy Plan mutual funds to improve diversification in class and strategy
- Timothy Plan ETFs adhere to eight primary biblical screens and 65 sub-screens that Timothy Plan has helped investors embrace since 1994.
“Scripture warns that the volume of riches can increase, and the impact can lessen—if that increase in volume is offset by support of activities and ideologies that have a direct negative effect on our community,” said Timothy Plan founder Art Ally.
Launched May 1, Timothy Plan Large Cap Core and Timothy Plan High Dividend Stock ETF funds are an affordable, transparent, tax-efficient and simple way to invest. They can balance investments as well as be added to 401(k) plans for retirement savings, which aligns with Timothy Plan’s goal of godly stewardship while managing risk for the investor by leaning more on companies that exhibit price stability.
Timothy Plan U.S. Large Cap Core ETF (TPLC) offers exposure to large-cap U.S. stocks, without subjecting investors to the inherent limitations of traditional market-cap weighting. Timothy Plan High Dividend Stock ETF (TPHD) provides investors with exposure to dividend-yielding Large Cap U.S. stocks without subjecting investors to the inherent limitations of traditional market-cap or yield weighting.
Brokers or financial advisors can help investors with Timothy Plan ETFs, and they can also be purchased via any online brokerage account. Timothy Plan ETFs are set apart because they are professionally managed and biblically screened.
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 first of its kind, Timothy Plan birthed the trend of biblically responsible investing (BRI), which is growing rapidly and extensively. In fact, Timothy Plan’s mutual funds currently have over $1 billion of assets under management.
An ETF is a marketable security that tracks 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.
