Brown Advisory Sustainable Bond (BASBX) Fund Profile
The Brown Advisory Sustainable Bond Fund (the "Fund") seeks to provide a competitive total return consistent with preservation of principal while giving special consideration to certain environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria.
Under normal conditions, Brown Advisory LLC (the "Adviser") seeks to achieve the Fund's investment objective by investing at least 80% of the value of its net assets (plus borrowings for investment purposes) in fixed income securities of issuers that satisfy the Fund's ESG criteria.

The Fund invests in corporate, municipal, mortgage-backed and asset-backed fixed income securities that are issued as “Green Bonds” or that otherwise meet the Fund’s ESG criteria. Additionally, the Fund also invests in securities issued by the U.S. Government and foreign government entities that are both dollar-and non-dollar-denominated. Under normal circumstances, the Fund’s portfolio will seek to have an average dollar weighted maturity between six and eleven years and an average duration of three to seven years. Duration is a measurement of a fixed income security’s price sensitivity to interest rate changes.
