Biblical Mutual Fund Surpasses $50 Million On Strong Inflows And Performance

Lafayette, Louisiana, January 13, 2021 – The biblically responsible Issachar Fund (ticker: LIONX) grew assets from $11 million to over $50 million as of year-end 2020. The actively managed mutual fund delivered returns of 26.19% for the year of 2020, and successfully attracted $32.4 Mil of net new assets from investors buying into the fund. (See complete list of returns below).

Importantly, LIONX achieved these quality returns with a maximum drawdown of only -9.87%, buffering investors from much of the stock market’s volatility and declines as the world wrestled through the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic and contentious election cycle.

In addition to gaining assets from investors seeking to benefit from the quality performance LIONX delivered, the fund also benefited from the growth of the biblically responsible investing(BRI) movement as Christian investors seek to align their portfolios to support biblical values. LIONX is an affiliate of Inspire Investing, a global leader in the BRI movement managing $1.3 billion in assets and is listed on the Inc. 5000 list of “Fastest Growing Private Companies In America”. The management team of LIONX has worked with Inspire since 2019 to help with the conversion of LIONX to biblically responsible investing and leverage Inspire’s broad network to get the word out about the fund.

“I am very pleased with the results we were able to deliver to shareholders in 2020,” commented Dexter Lyons, portfolio manager of LIONX, “Since we started working with Inspire Investing to convert the Issachar Fund to biblically responsible investing principles in 2019, we have seen compelling results from both a values and financial perspective, and our performance and inflows last year further my conviction that converting the fund to BRI was the right thing to do. To God be the glory!”
