Inspire Investing Joins the Christian Investment Forum

Inspire Investing is proud to become the newest member of the Christian Investment Forum (CIF), a Kingdom-focused investment association committed to advancing and promoting the biblically responsible investing (BRI) movement. The CIF has been researching BRI for over 7 years and is quickly becoming one of the go-to resources on the topic.

Inspire Investing is a global thought leader in the biblically responsible investing space, providing investors and advisors access to faith-based ESG investments that are index based and align with biblical values. Inspire identifies some of the most inspiring, biblically aligned companies through their innovative Inspire Impact Score methodology, which is a rules based, data driven approach to measure a company’s positive impact on the world.

Here is what Inspire CEO, Robert Netzly, had to say about becoming a member, “Education is the key to advancing the BRI movement. That is why we are happy to be partnering with the CIF to educate and equip both investors and advisors with the necessary tools to successfully implement BRI and align their investments with their values.”

John Siverling, President of the CIF, had this to say, “The Christian Investment Forum is excited to add Inspire Investing as a member.  CIF is committed to increasing the awareness and use of faith driven investing and embracing the different styles and approaches our members take to bring their Christian faith actively into how they professionally manage money.  With the addition of Inspire investments to the roster of award-winning mutual funds and investment products from CIF members, investors have a growing list of investment options that align with their faith.”

The CIF Leadership Summit

The CIF hosts an annual gathering to help sharpen the skills of like-minded investors and advisors on biblically responsible investing. There are a variety of sessions to equip attendees with the latest information and trends on BRI, implementation techniques, as well as the ability to engage with peers and experts in the industry. This year’s summit is hosted again in Asheville, North Carolina at the Billy Graham Training Center at The Cove on August 14th to the 16th.
