Inspire Investing, a major player in Christian ETFs, is listing another biblically aligned ETF, this time targeting international equity. The Inspire International ESG ETF (WWJD) will invest international companies after applying negative and positive ESG screens.
The negative screen rules out the familiar corporate baddies (alcohol, tobacco, weapons, gambling) but adds a Christian slant and excludes companies in abortion, “the LGBT lifestyle”, poor labour practices and discrimination against Christians.
The positive screen gives higher scores to those help the poor, pay their workers properly and have Christian themed products. The fund charges 0.80%.
