Socially Responsible Investing
To accommodate participants’ unique priorities and goals, we offer a range of investments that vary in their social impact focus. The Reform Jewish Values (RJV) Fund is our strongest vehicle for environmental, social and governance (ESG) investing. On the other end of the spectrum is our Tier 1 Capital Preservation Fund and the Tier 2 Vanguard funds. And in the middle are our other Tier 1 funds.
RPB’s Jewish Values Investing (JVI) Policy is the approach we’ve used for years to integrate socially responsible factors, as well as support of Israel, into our investment process.
