IBD provides broad exposure to higher credit quality, investment grade fixed income securities issued by “blue chip” large cap companies in the U.S.
IBD's intermediate-term composition is designed to be a “core fixed income” holding and function as the workhorse of fixed income portfolios.
IBD uses the Inspire Impact Score methodology to seek out investments in the most inspiring, biblically aligned companies in the U.S. applying a faith-based perspective to environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria when evaluating a company’s operations.
The Inspire Impact Score is an objective, rules-based scoring system which Inspire uses to identify the most inspiring, biblically aligned companies to invest in -- the kind of companies that are blessings to their communities, customers, workforce and the world. The Inspire Impact Score rates a company on a scale of -100 to +100 in relation to how well the company aligns with biblical values, with +100 being the highest possible score.

Inspire donates 50% or more of the net profits from management fees each year to Christian ministry. Here are the projects that Inspire has supported over the past year. Note: Giving can and does change to meet changing ministry needs.
