A filing from the Northern Lights fund family represents the firm’s first step into the ETF space. The document details plans for three funds that will rely on a score that represents the biblical values and the positive impact of the company in question.

The funds use the Inspire Impact Score to rate companies’ securities based on their adherence to biblical values and to common environmental, social and governance standards. The securities of the highest-scoring companies are included in the index and equally weighted.

  • The Inspire Global Hope Large Cap ETF covers developed and emerging markets and includes 400 stocks. Component stocks must have market capitalizations of at least $10 billion.
  • The Inspire Small/Mid Cap Impact ETF covers domestic equities with market capitalizations of less than $10 billion. The index includes 500 securities.
  • The Inspire Corporate Bond Impact ETF tracks an index that includes 100 domestic corporate bonds.

Each fund will come with an expense ratio of 0.65%. The filing did not include ticker symbols or a listing exchange.
