Our Investment Process

The Domini Funds are actively managed using a two-step process that pairs our expertise in impact investing with the robust financial engine of our sub-manager, Wellington Management Company. Domini is responsible for the development and application of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) standards, which we apply consistently across all of our funds. Subject to these standards, Wellington Management is responsible for each Fund’s financial standards and portfolio construction.

First, Domini conducts proprietary in-house ESG research to determine which securities meet our standards.

Founded by industry pioneers, we believe our decades of experience and our proprietary in-house research are key differentiators. Our skilled research team has a wide variety of expertise in social and environmental issues across industries and geographies.

Then, Wellington Management conducts financial analysis and constructs portfolios, selecting securities from Domini's approved list.

With over $1 trillion in client assets under management, they serve as a trusted adviser to clients in over 60 countries. Their innovative investment solutions are built on the strength of proprietary, independent research and span nearly all segments of the global capital markets.
