Pax World Management LLC, investment adviser to Pax World Funds, offers a comprehensive platform of actively and passively managed Sustainable Investing strategies. One of the first investment managers to integrate environmental, social and governance (ESG) or sustainability factors into investment analysis and decision making, today Pax World manages more than $3.2 billion in assets (as of 12/31/13) for individuals, financial advisors, and institutional investors.
Founders Luther Tyson and Jack Corbett, longtime colleagues working on peace, housing and employment issues for the United Methodist Church, launched the Pax World Fund in 1971, the first socially responsible mutual fund in America. The fund provided investors a vehicle that allowed them to align their investments with their values and empowered them to challenge corporations to establish and meet high standards of social and environmental responsibility. Their pioneering work guided development of the sustainable investing industry’s philosophies.
Today, Pax World remains committed to continuous innovation in the disciplined execution of our sustainable investing philosophy; fully integrating ESG factors into investment analysis and decision making which Pax World President & CEO Joe Keefe calls "simply a better, smarter way to invest."
