Risks

An investment in the Domini Impact International Equity Fund is not insured and is subject to certain risks, including foreign investing, emerging markets, geographic focus, country, currency, impact investing, portfolio management, market, recent events and mid- to large-cap companies risks. Investing internationally involves special risks, such as currency fluctuations, social and economic instability, differing securities regulations and accounting standards, limited public information, possible changes in taxation, and periods of illiquidity. 

These risks may be heightened in connection with investments in emerging market countries. The Adviser’s evaluation of environmental and social factors in its investment selections and the timing of the Subadviser’s implementation of the Adviser’s investment selections will affect the Fund’s exposure to certain issuers, industries, sectors, regions, and countries and may impact the relative financial performance of the Fund depending on whether such investments are in or out of favor. The value of your investment may decrease if the Adviser’s or Subadviser’s judgement about Fund investments does not produce the desired results. The market value of Fund investments will fluctuate and you may lose money. Public health crises caused by the COVID-19 outbreak may exacerbate other pre-existing political, social and economic risks in certain countries or globally. The market prices of companies at different capitalization levels may vary due to market conditions and cycles. The value of your investment will be affected by the Fund’s exposure to mid- and large-cap companies.

The Fund may change any of the policies described above at any time.

Although the Domini Impact International Equity Fund Investor shares are no-load, certain fees and expenses apply to a continued investment and are described in the prospectus.

The Fund's returns, quoted below, represent past performance after all expenses, which is no guarantee of future results. Investment return, principal value, and yield will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted. See the applicable prospectus for further information.

The performance quoted above does not reflect the deduction of fees and taxes that a shareholder would pay on Fund distributions or the redemption of Fund shares. Total return is based on the Fund’s net asset values and assumes all dividends and capital gains were reinvested.

Annual Turnover is the lesser of purchases or sales for the trailing 12 months divided by the portfolio's average trailing 13-month net asset values.

Price/Book Ratio is the weighted harmonic average of the price/book ratios of the stocks in the portfolio, which are the stocks’ most recent closing prices divided by their book value per share.

Price/Earnings Ratio is the weighted harmonic average of the price/earnings ratios of the stocks in the portfolio, which are the stocks’ most recent closing prices divided by their earnings per share over the trailing 12 months.

Dividend Yield is the weighted harmonic average of the dividend yields of the stocks in the portfolio, which are the stocks’ dividends per share over the trailing 12 months divided by their most recent closing prices.
