San Francisco-based Shelton Capital Management has introduced the Shelton Green Alpha Fund (NEXTX) in response to the growing belief that it makes sense to invest in companies that are responding to the challenges presented by a warming, over populated, carbon-and-resource-constrained world.

“There is a persistent and increasing demand from investors looking to allocate capital with a focus on themes such as water, clean energy, responsible agriculture solutions and other next economy commerce,” says Steve Rogers, CEO of Shelton Capital. “What makes the fund’s approach appealing is the positive focus on businesses that are having an impact.”   

The fund seeks to invest in publicly traded companies that have identified one or more environmental problems and are directing their business towards addressing that problem.

Subadvised by Green Alpha Advisors, based in Boulder, Colo., the fund is available directly through Shelton Capital Management and at most major brokerage firms such as TD Ameritrade, Fidelity and Charles Schwab.
