An investment in the Domini Impact International Equity Fund is not a bank deposit. The Fund is not insured and is subject to certain risks, including foreign investing, emerging markets, geographic focus, country, currency, impact investing, portfolio management, market, recent events and mid- to large-cap companies risks. Investing internationally involves special risks, such as currency fluctuations, social and economic instability, differing securities regulations and accounting standards, limited public information, possible changes in taxation, and periods of illiquidity. These risks may be heightened in connection with investments in emerging market countries. You may lose money. See the prospectus for more information on risk.
