Strategy description: The Walden Fossil Fuel Free Balanced and Equity strategies seek to provide investors competitive returns with less than market risk over full market cycles by investing in reasonably valued securities of high quality companies with sustainable business models. These strategies address the priorities of clients who choose to exclude fossil fuel companies from their portfolios. The strategy avoids investment in companies whose primary business focus is to engage or assist in the exploration, development, production, transport, or refining of fossil fuel resources.
