Christian Financial Advisors Driving Growth
Inspire attributes much of their growth to successfully recruiting Christian financial advisors onto their Inspire Advisors RIA platform launched in January, 2019. Inspire Advisors is focused on serving Christian financial advisors and both their Christian and non-Christian clients with a faith-friendly platform.
“Many Christian advisors are looking for a firm to join that will encourage them in their journey to deeply integrate their faith with their practice, something hard to find in a secular firm,” commented Netzly. “We are seeing strong demand from Christian advisors for an RIA firm that shares their faith and empowers them to live it out in their daily work with utmost excellence.”
Inspire Advisors has successfully attracted over $250M in new advisor assets since launch in 2019.
