Biblically Responsible Investing

At Inspire Advisors, we believe you should be proud of the investments you own. That means investing in quality companies from both a financial and values-based perspective.

Your Inspire Advisor can help you invest in quality companies that are doing good around the world, like fighting cancer, cleaning water and operating with high ethical and moral standards, while also working toward your financial goals.

Our Three Step Approach

Biblically responsible investing is taking 1 Corinthians 10:31 at face value: “Whatever you do, do it all to the glory of God.” 

Inspire’s approach is threefold:
Endorse companies making a positive impact on the world
Engage with companies to create positive Biblical change
Exclude companies involved in immoral issues

Every investment at Inspire is screened for positive and negative qualities.

Inspire seeks out above average, “best in class” companies in the following areas:
