Community investing is a strategy for redirecting capital to where it is needed most — and empowering people to help themselves. It is a strategy that recognizes that a healthy and vibrant economy must be built from the bottom up.
The choices you make in your everyday life — including the way you invest — impact others in your own community, across the country, or even around the world. You can invest for your future, while also providing economic opportunity to those who have been left behind.
A strong, vibrant marketplace requires strong, vibrant communities. Domini helps support communities across the country.
The Domini Social Bond Fund invests in bonds and other securities that help residents of underserved urban and rural communities to start their own businesses and buy their own homes.
The Domini Social Bond Fund offers the investment advantages of mainstream fixed-income investments. But it also helps low-income individuals finance first-time home purchases, create daycare centers, refurbish houses of worship, and start up and expand family businesses. In addition, it supports institutions that provide valuable training and empowerment to those who have not previously dealt with mainstream financial institutions.
Past performance is no guarantee of future results. The Domini Funds are not insured and are subject to market risks. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. You may lose money.
The Domini Social Bond Fund is subject to market risks, including interest rate and credit risks. During period of rising interest rates, bond funds can lose value. The Domini Social Bond Fund currently holds a large percentage of its portfolio in mortgage-backed securities. During periods of falling interest rates, mortgage-backed securities may prepay the principal due, which may lower the Fund's return by causing it to reinvest at lower interest rates. Some of the Domini Social Bond Fund's community development investments may be unrated and carry greater credit risks than its other investments.
