APPLIES POSITIVE SCREENS IN STOCK SELECTION

Better World International Fund looks for high-quality, attractively valued companies that, in our view, are making, or will make, a positive impact on the world. Our research focuses on companies with proof points that we think demonstrate their power to last and grow over time.

A SHARP FOCUS ON SUSTAINABLE INVESTING

The fund approaches the ESG space with a sustainable investing discipline. We believe companies that are pursuing sustainable business models can also create lasting value for themselves and their stakeholders, lower operating costs over the long run, and facilitate better capital allocation, greater innovation, and an enhanced reputation. Over time, these attributes can be captured in potentially higher share prices.

COMPANIES MAKING A POSITIVE IMPACT ON THE WORLD

We look for companies whose standards may have a long-term economic benefit directly on the business and its stakeholders, like customers, employees, governments, and communities. With the support of the entire Thornburg investment team, our process works to identify business models whose sustainability may offer investors a solid total return with less risk and volatility.

A HERITAGE OF COMMUNITY SUPPORT & VOLUNTEERISM

Better World International Fund is a natural extension of our corporate culture of responsibility. Starting with founder and chairman Garrett Thornburg and spanning throughout the employee ranks, our commitment to the community is seen through our corporate and individual donations, frequent employee volunteerism, and even in our headquarters facility in Santa Fe, which is LEED Gold certified for energy efficiency and environmentally friendly design.
