SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE MUTUAL FUNDS
Learn even more about this topic with the Encyclopedia of Personal Finance™

Mutual funds offer the opportunity to invest in a wide variety of securities that fit criteria for social responsibility. The fund managers choose the companies or government securities they want to invest in. The investor must then accept or reject the whole fund—choosing only specific holdings is not allowed.

Investors may not agree with a fund's every selection. For some, choosing a socially responsible mutual fund may be a matter of picking the one with the least number of objectionable holdings. Fund managers vary in the breadth and strictness of their criteria.

Aside from diversification and professional management, mutual funds are attractive because they provide a way to invest small sums of money into large portfolios. Investors can thus participate in the funding of many different endeavors.

To find funds that call themselves socially responsible, consult investment periodicals, books on mutual funds, and books on socially responsible investing. You can also find advertisements for these funds in magazines that focus on social, political, and environmental issues.

We close our look at the socially responsible investment strategy on the next screen.
