Does the institution offer a socially responsible investment option for retirement plans?:
A brief description of the socially responsible investment option for retirement plans:
The CREF Social Choice Account seeks a favorable long-term rate of return that reflects the investment performance of the financial markets while giving special consideration to certain social criteria (http://enroll.tiaa-cref.org/resources/ffs/194408605.pdf).
The Neuberger Berman Socially Responsible Investment fund is also available to UNCG employees through a retirement plan managed by the Lincoln Financial Group. This fund seeks long-term growth of capital and mainly invests in common stocks of mid- to large-cap companies across many different industries. Social criteria include leadership in environmental concerns, diversity in the work force, progressive employment and workplace practices, and community relations.(http://enroll.newriver.com/lincoln/factsheet/plans/html/funds/NBSRX.html).
