An investment in the Domini Impact Equity Fund is not a bank deposit and is not insured. You may lose money. An investment in the Fund is subject to market, sector concentration, style, and foreign investing risks. Investing internationally involves special risks, such as currency fluctuations, social and economic instability, differing security regulations and accounting standards, limited public information, possible changes in taxation, and periods of illiquidity.

This information is provided for educational purposes only, and should not be considered investment advice with respect to any of the holdings listed. The composition of the Funds’ portfolios is subject to change. View the most current list of the Domini Impact Equity Fund, Domini Impact International Equity Fund and Domini Impact Bond Fund's holdings.

The Domini Impact Bond Fund may hold a substantial portion of its assets in the direct obligations of U.S. government agencies and government-sponsored entities, including Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and in the mortgage-backed securities of Government National Mortgage Association (Ginnie Mae), Fannie Mae, and Freddie Mac. Ginnie Mae is a wholly owned government corporation that guarantees privately issued securities backed by pools of mortgages insured by the Federal Housing Administration, the Department of Veterans Affairs, and the Department of Agriculture under the Rural Housing Service Program. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are government-chartered corporations whose mandate is to enhance liquidity in the secondary mortgage markets. (Ginnie Maes are guaranteed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. Treasury as to the timely payment of principal and interest. Freddie Macs and Fannie Maes are backed by their respective issuer only, and are not guaranteed or insured by the U.S. government or the U.S. Treasury.)

The Domini Impact Bond Fund is not insured and is subject to market risks, including interest rate and credit risks. You may lose money. During periods of rising interest rates, bond funds can lose value. The Domini Impact Bond Fund currently holds a large percentage of its portfolio in mortgage-backed securities. During periods of falling interest rates, mortgage-backed securities may prepay the principal due, which may lower the Fund’s return by causing it to reinvest at lower interest rates. Some of the Domini Impact Bond Fund's community development investments may be unrated and carry greater credit risks than its other investments.

The social, environmental and governance standards applied to the Domini Funds are subject to change without notice, as is Domini’s analysis of any of the issuers named above.
