Launched in 2015, the Saturna Sustainable Funds seek to invest in issuers that demonstrate sustainable characteristics. Sustainable issuers are generally larger, more established, consistently profitable, and financially strong, with low risks in areas of the environment, social responsibility, and governance ("ESG").
The Funds seek issuers with:
- Sustainable profits
- Strong balance sheet
- Management strength
- High quality operations
- Risk consciousness
- Long-term focus
- Low debt
- Established businesses
Our team of investment analysts rank hundreds of companies for expected future market performance and multiple environmental (e.g., sustainability policies), social (e.g., workplace safety), and governance (e.g., board effectiveness) risk factors.
