SRI Chat - Socially Responsible Investing
Subject: SRI funds - investing in Walmart
From: John Leveen

I nbotice that quite a few Social funds currently invest in Wal-mart. I find this to be such a contradiction since Walmart sells guns. How can any social fund possibly call themselves SRI and yest still invest in such a company?

The Domini Index fund is a good example of a fund which does this. I fail to see how they can justify this at all.

As an SRI investor I do not want to invest in a fund which supports teh sale of guns!

Can anyone tell me any funds which specifically exclude Wal-mart?
