The CCM Community Impact Bond Fund (the Fund) is an investment-grade, intermediate duration bond fund that seeks to preserve capital, deliver attractive risk-adjusted returns, and serve as the ballast in a portfolio while investing in well-researched bonds that have direct and measurable positive societal impacts.
The Fund’s impact criteria primarily focus on the use of bond proceeds and documentation of their expected environmental and social outcomes, with most bonds qualifying under the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) of 1977. An additional offering is customization where shareholders meeting minimum requirements can tailor their capital to support specific geographies, impact themes, or impact initiatives, a benefit accompanied by impact reporting. The Fund invests in securities that we consider to be fossil fuel free. If we invest in a bond whose use of proceeds will be used to finance activities or projects in clean and renewable energy, or other activities that may contribute to the transition to a more sustainable economy, we may invest in those bonds even if the issuer’s revenue or profits are partially derived from the fossil fuel sector.
Mutual fund investing involves risk including the loss of principal. Bond and bond funds are subject to interest rate risk and will decline in value as interest rates rise. The Fund is non-diversified. There is no guarantee the objective of the Fund will be achieved. This Fund involves impact and ESG Risk. The Adviser may select or exclude securities of certain companies for reasons other than performance and, as a result, the Fund may underperform other funds that do not use an impact and ESG screening process. Impact and ESG investing is qualitative and subjective by nature. There is no guarantee that impact and ESG criteria used by the Adviser will reflect beliefs or values of any particular investor.
