Genesis Balanced Portfolio
The Genesis Portfolios are considered a “fund of funds"1. This is an investment approach that uses a strategy of holding a group of funds rather than investing directly in individual stocks, bonds, or other securities. The Genesis Portfolios will invest in a combination of the other Praxis Mutual Funds to achieve the investment objective of the Portfolios. The Portfolios will purchase the Class I shares of each fund. Class I shares are our lowest cost share class. The investment managers may also invest up to 10 percent of each portfolio in non-Praxis mutual funds or exchange traded funds2 to gain exposure to unique investment characteristics not available in the underlying Praxis funds and whose screening criteria may differ from the Everence core stewardship investing guidelines.
Making a difference
Praxis stewardship investing is a values-based approach to socially responsible investing that incorporates:
- Values and ESG-informed restrictive screens
- Corporate engagement strategy
- Values-driven proxy voting policy
- One percent of the fund assets committed to community development investing
