    15 Best ESG Funds for Responsible Investors

    So-called responsible investing can take many forms - as many forms as there are values to stand behind. Are you concerned about reducing fossil fuels? What about promoting women in the workplace? Whether you care about those issues or others, there's likely an ESG (environmental, social and corporate governance) fund for you.You're not alone, either. Investors' hunger for ESG funds and stocks is growing at a rapid clip. According to Deloitte, the percentage of investors who applied ESG principles to at least a quarter of their portfolios grew from 48% in 2017 to 75% in 2019.There are two main approaches to responsible investing: negative screening and positive screening. In the former, you try to avoid the bad by excluding companies whose values you disagree with; the "sin" industries of tobacco, gambling and guns are frequently separated from the herd. This is how socially responsible investing (SRI) got its start, and it's still a common approach.Positive screening tries to maximize exposure to companies doing good. This is primarily the realm of ESG funds, which aim to hold stocks with good environmental, social and governance practices. The theory is that ESG-friendly companies won't just make you feel better - they'll perform better, too, thanks to benefits such as cost savings from energy efficiency or better management driven by more diverse leadership.Here are 15 of the best ESG funds for investors looking to put their money where their values are. Most of these picks, which include mutual funds and exchange-traded funds (ETFs) alike, use a combination of SRI exclusion and ESG inclusion. And they cover the gamut, from global large-cap stocks to small American companies to even bonds that are backed by ESG-friendly companies.In other words: There's something for just about every need.

    5 Great Funds for a Down Market

    "Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth." Fearsome former heavyweight champ Mike Tyson wasn't talking about investors when he dispensed that particular piece of wisdom. But with the walloping portfolios have taken in recent months, he might as well have been. The recent stock market plunge serves as a wake-up call (if not an uppercut to the jaw) for investors.If major declines in your mutual funds have you reconsidering just how much of a beating you're willing to take, consider adding a fund that holds up in difficult markets. From the 2007-09 bear market through today's turmoil, Standard & Poor's 500-stock index has had five downturns of 15% or more. And, with one exception, the large-company stock funds below held up better than the index on every occasion (Akre Focus didn't open for business until 2009). These funds won't dazzle when the market returns to bull form. But by surrendering less when the market flounders, they've each built market-beating track records over the long term.
