2017 Prison and Occupation-Free Mutual Funds


The information below was published in mid-2017, before we launched our new web feature that screens mutual funds. Now that this feature is available to the public, you should disregard the list below and scan your mutual fund on our homepage.


The following is a list of socially responsible mutual funds that have not reported holdings in any of the companies on our divestment list. This does not mean that these funds are actively screening for prison or occupation-related human rights violations. If you have investments and these issues are important to you, contact your money manager to let them know about your concerns and to urge them to adopt a socially responsible investment (SRI) policy that includes a human rights screen.

This analysis was done in March, 2017, based on data ranging from September 2016 to March 2017. This list only included mutual funds whose main assets are in stocks. It does not include fixed income or real estate funds. By the end of 2017, we plan to offer a searchable tool that would scan any U.S. mutual fund for holdings in prison and occupation companies.

If you have information about a mutual fund that you think should be on this list, or if you want to get information about a specific fund that is not on this list, contact us at investigate@afsc.org.

The AFSC does not recommend or endorse investment in any of these funds.
