Expense Ratio: 0.99%

Parnassus Mid Cap, the first socially responsible fund in the Kip 25, has delivered solid returns with below-average volatility.

The managers combine social and ethical screens (no tobacco or gambling stocks, for starters) with basic stock research to find prospects. They favor midsize firms that offer a service or product that is in demand.
