Pax World Funds

Pax World Funds launched the first socially responsible mutual fund in the United States in 1971. The Funds are dedicated to promoting peace, protecting the environment, advancing equality, and fostering sustainable development. The Funds seek to invest in financially promising companies that meet positive standards of corporate social responsibility. The Funds' investment adviser believes that forward-thinking companies that maintain good relations with employees, consumers, communities and the environment in the long run better serve investors as well. Pax World has eight different mutual funds -- a Global Green Fund, a Women's Equity Fund, a balanced fund, a growth fund, a high yield fund, a value fund, a small cap fund, an international fund -- and a money market fund.
