Arthur D. Ally is founder and President of Timothy Plan, the nation’s leading Biblically based, pro-life, pro-family mutual fund group which uses stringent moral filtering criteria designed to avoid investing shareholders’ money in any company that has a pattern of contributing to the cultural pollution of society. He is general partner of Timothy Partners Ltd. (the fund’s sponsor/advisor) and past president of Covenant Financial Management Inc. (CFM), a financial planning firm he founded in 1990 prior to establishing Timothy Plan.
Ally was formerly certified as both a financial planner and public accountant, and has forty years of experience in the investment industry. Prior to forming CFM, Ally spent eight years with Shearson Lehman Brothers as vice president, branch manager and financial consultant, and five years with Prudential Bache in the same capacity. Throughout his career in the investment industry, Ally has developed an area of expertise in money management selection which has proven to be an asset to the Timothy Plan mutual fund family as all their funds are sub-advised by best of class money management firms.
That money management selection expertise is ingrained in Ally’s personal philosophy and that of the company, i.e., the “real key to good investment performance is good investment management.” It is the overriding reason why no funds are added to Timothy Plan (the firm presently offers a full family of mutual funds) until the company has identified and retained a top-tier money management firm that specializes in that fund’s asset category.
A much sought-after conference speaker, Ally has presented seminars and workshops for Christian conventions throughout the United States, primarily to registered financial advisors and investors.
