The Pax Ellevate Global Women’s Index Fund seeks returns that closely correspond to or exceed the performance of the Pax Global Women’s Leadership Index*. This Fund is the first and only mutual fund in the United States that focuses on investing in the highest-rated companies in the world in advancing women’s leadership.
The Pax Global Women’s Leadership Index* is the first broad-market index of the highest-rated companies in the world in advancing women's leadership, as rated by Pax World Gender Analytics, and that meet key environmental, social and governance (ESG) standards, as rated by MSCI ESG Research.
Research shows that companies that embrace gender diversity on their boards and in management often see improved performance and profitability as a result. The Pax Ellevate Global Women’s Index Fund is premised on the belief that investing in companies that invest in women is a compelling strategy for long-term investors.
RISKS: Investment in mutual funds involves risk, including possible loss of principal invested. You could lose money on your investment in the Fund or the Fund could underperform because of the following risks: the market prices of stocks held by the Fund may fall; individual investments of the Fund may not perform as expected; the Fund’s portfolio management practices may not achieve the desired result. The Fund does not attempt to outperform the Index or take defensive positions in declining markets. Accordingly, the Fund’s performance would likely be adversely affected by a decline in the Index. Funds focusing on small/medium companies generally experience greater price volatility. Investments in emerging markets and non-US Securities are generally less liquid and less efficient than investments in developed markets and are subject to additional risks, such as risks of adverse governmental regulation, intervention and political developments. As this Fund can have a high concentration in some issuers the Fund can be adversely impacted by changes affecting issuers. There is no guarantee that the objective will be met and diversification does not eliminate risk.
