New Exchange-Traded Funds Will Further Help the Faithful Honor God With Their Money
ORLANDO, Fla.—Timothy Partners, LTD., advisor to the Timothy Plan family of funds, is announcing today the introduction of two new Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs) that will help Christian investors continue to honor God with their money.
Launching Wednesday, May 1, Timothy Plan Large Cap Core and Timothy Plan High Dividend Stock ETF funds, like other ETFs, are an affordable, transparent, tax-efficient and simple way to invest, and steward their God-given resources wisely.
“In order to continue our mission of providing Christians with relevant investment products that do not compromise their values, we are excited about partnering with Victory Capital to launch these two ETFs,” said Timothy Plan founder Art Ally. “Victory Capital provides the level of service and expertise that Timothy Plan investors expect, and I feel confident that Victory Capital can help us fulfill our highest priority—to glorify God by striving for excellence in all that we do.”
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, or BRI, or Faith-Based Investing, which is growing rapidly and extensively. In fact, in 2017 their mutual funds reached $1 billion of assets under management.
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.
What makes Timothy Plan’s ETFs interesting? Its methodology. Strategic beta seeks to capture exposure to certain factors and exploit market inefficiencies in an attempt to deliver specific and/or better risk-adjusted outcome, while striving to return the benefits of passive investing.
According to ETF.com more than 260 ETFs launched since Jan. 1, 2018, and there are 1,800 ETFs available in the marketplace.
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.
