Praxis Growth Index Fund
- Invests primarily in U.S. equity securities and uses optimized indexing techniques to reflect the performance of the Standard & Poor's 500 Growth Index, while incorporating stewardship investing criteria.
- Attempts to minimize risk through diversification.
Equity securities (stocks) are more volatile and carry more risk than other forms of investments, including investments in high-grade fixed income securities. The net asset value per share of this fund will fluctuate as the value of the securities in the portfolio changes. Common stocks, and funds investing in common stocks, generally provide greater return potential when compared with other types of investments. Growth-based investments are subject to the risk that the broad market may overstate their intrinsic value.
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
