Parnassus Mid Cap Fund

Symbol: PARMX
Expense Ratio: 0.99%

Parnassus Mid Cap invests in midsize firms that meet environmental, social and governance standards. For instance, the fund avoids companies that pull in hefty revenues from tobacco or guns.

Managers Matt Gershuny and Lori Keith focus on fast-growing firms that offer a product or service that’s in demand. Price matters, too. The stock must trade at a discount to what the managers deem the firm to be worth.
