Mutual funds that consider the social impact of their investments stay competitive, even in tough times.
FYI: Two thirds of the mutual funds deemed socially and environmentally responsible by the 500-member Social Investment Forum got high marks from top investment research firms in the third quarter, despite a tanking economy. The funds in question each formally consider criteria ranging from a company’s human rights record to its relationship with the community before buying in. To see which funds screen for which issues—and how they actually respond to social and environmental irresponsibility of potential investments—check out the Forum’s detailed chart on each fund.
