Praxis International Index Fund
- Invests primarily in foreign equity securities and uses optimized indexing techniques to reflect the performance of the MSCI All Country World ex-U.S. Index, while incorporating stewardship investing criteria.
- Attempts to minimize risk through broad diversification among foreign countries and industries.
An investment in this Fund entails the special risks of international investing, including currency exchange fluctuation, government regulations, and the potential for political and economic instability. The Fund’s share price is expected to be more volatile than that of a U.S.-only fund. 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.
Making a difference
