Two Biblically Responsible ESG ETFs Celebrate 1st Anniversary with Double-Digit Returns

Two actively managed, Biblically Responsible ESG ETFs celebrated one year of trading on December 7, 2021.

Boise, Idaho December 21, 2021 – Inspire Investing, a leading biblically responsible ESG (environment, social, governance) investing firm, celebrated one year of trading two ETFs on Tuesday, December 7, 2021; the Inspire Faithward Large Cap Momentum ETF (NYSE: FEVR) and the Inspire Faithward Mid Cap Momentum ETF (NYSE: GLRY), which despite the tumultuous year, saw double-digit returns in their first year of trading.

“What an amazing year it has been to come alongside Inspire and offer even more BRI options to investors.” Said sub-advisor, Matt Melott. “Considering our investing driver historically performs better in calmer markets, and 2021 was definitely not a calm time, we are proud of our team’s double-digit returns, stellar asset growth, and relationship with Inspire.”

Both ETFs utilize a dual screening approach where Faithward Capital overlays their FEVRR investment screening process on top of the Inspire Impact Score methodology, which identifies some of the most inspiring, biblically aligned companies in the world. The FEVRR process screens companies based on financial health, earnings trends, valuation, relative strength, and risk to find high-quality stocks with strong profit potential.

Important Risk Information:

Inspire ETFs are distributed by Foreside Financial Services LLC, Member FINRA. Investment advisory services are offered through Inspire Investing, LLC, a Registered Investment Advisor with the SEC.

The Fund invests its assets in companies with Inspire Impact Score® of zero and higher. As a result of its strategy, the Fund's exclusion of securities of certain issuers for non-financial reasons may cause the Fund to forgo some market opportunities available to funds that do not use these criteria. The Fund is a new ETF with a limited history of operations for investors to evaluate. The value of investments in larger companies may not rise as much as smaller companies, or larger companies may be unable to respond quickly to competitive challenges, such as changes in technology and consumer tastes. The Sub-Adviser's judgments about the growth, value, or potential appreciation of an investment may prove to be incorrect or fail to have the intended results, which could adversely impact the Fund's performance and cause it to underperform relative to other funds with similar investment goals or relative to its benchmark, or not to achieve its investment goal. Fluctuations in the value of equity securities held by the Fund will cause the net asset value (“NAV”) of the Fund and the price of its shares (“Shares”) to fluctuate.

ETF shares are not redeemable with the issuing fund other than in large Creation Unit aggregations. Instead, investors must buy or sell ETF Shares in the secondary market with the assistance of a stockbroker. In doing so, the investor may incur brokerage commissions and may pay more than net asset value when buying and receive less than net asset value when selling. The NAV of the Fund’s shares is calculated each day the national securities exchanges are open for trading as of the close of regular trading on the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”), normally 4:00 p.m. Eastern time (the “NAV Calculation Time”). Shares are bought and sold at market price (closing price) not NAV. Market Price returns are based upon the official closing price on the listing exchange (NYSE ARCA) at 4:00 p.m. ET when NAV is normally determined for most Inspire Funds, and do not represent the returns you would receive if you traded shares at other times.

An active secondary market for the Fund’s shares may not exist. Although the Fund’s shares will be listed on an exchange, subject to notice of issuance, it is possible that an active trading market may not develop or be maintained. There is no guarantee that distributions will be paid.
