Impact investor tool certifies Praxis Mutual Funds
Real Impact Tracker a resource for those who want their investments to make a difference
Praxis Mutual Funds® is one of two leaders in responsible and impact investing added recently to Real Impact Tracker’s Certified Community of Fund Managers.
Real Impact Tracker is a tool to help investors find money managers committed to creating social and environmental benefits with their investments.
“The phenomenal growth in active ESG (environmental, social and governance) integration by investment managers has been amazing,” said Mark Regier, Vice President of Stewardship Investing for Praxis. “It should only be a starting point, however, for investors seeking to truly make a difference in the world through their investments.”
Regier added, “Real Impact Tracker is the first investment manager evaluation system designed to look beyond a portfolio’s holdings to assess the many strategies that create ‘real impact.’”
Chris Meyer, Manager of Stewardship Investing Advocacy and Research for Praxis, was a panelist recently for a webinar Real Impact Tracker hosted. Meyer explained how faith-based values are infused throughout the Praxis investment and engagement processes.
Real Impact Tracker wants to distinguish the intentional leaders from others in the increasingly crowded impact investing field. Less than 10 percent of funds scored with the Real Impact Tracker rating system meet its certification threshold.
Praxis Mutual Funds, advised by Everence® Capital Management, integrates social and financial considerations while seeking to make a positive impact on the world through stewardship investing.
