We strive to maintain your trust and confidence in our firm, an essential aspect of which is our commitment to protect your personal information to the best of our ability.

We have not and will not sell your personal information to anyone.

Privacy Policy

Personal Information That We Collect, Maintain and Communicate

Impax Asset Management LLC collects and maintains your personal information so we can provide investment management services to you. The types and categories of information we collect and maintain about you include:

  • Information we receive from you to open an account or provide investment advice to you (such as your name, home address, telephone number, marital status, social security number, name and social security number of beneficiaries, occupation and employment information, and tax bracket and other financial information, and investment history, including any information contained in subscription documents or investor questionnaires).
  • Information that we generate to service your account (such as trade tickets and account statements).
  • Information that we may receive from third parties with respect to your account (such as information which we may receive from your investment advisors, attorneys, accountants or other financial advisors).

In order for us to provide these services to you, we do disclose your personal information in very limited instances, which include:

  • Disclosures to companies – subject to strict confidentiality agreements – that perform services on our behalf (such as our technology consultants who assist us in maintaining our computer systems).
  • Disclosures to companies as permitted by law, including those necessary to service your account (such as providing account information to outside legal counsel, to other broker-dealers with whom you maintain an account or to custodians).
  • Disclosures to regulatory agencies as permitted by law, including the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Treasury Department, and state securities commissions. These agencies may make official requests from time to time regarding customer accounts and trading activity, to which we are obligated to respond.

How We Protect Your Personal Information

To fulfill our privacy commitment at Impax Asset Management LLC, we have instituted firm-wide practices to safeguard the information that we maintain about you. These include:

  • Adopting policies and procedures that put in place physical, electronic, and other safeguards to keep your personal information safe.
  • Limiting access to personal information to those employees who need it to perform their job duties.
  • Requiring third parties that perform services for us to agree by contract to keep your information strictly confidential.
  • Protecting information of our former clients to the same extent as our current clients.

Online Security

Our Online Account Access Service has been developed using Internet encryption technology to provide one of the most secured methods of transferring information available via the Internet. Your Internet browser must be able to support 128-bit encryption and be Secure Socket Layer (SSL) compliant. SSL is a security protocol developed by Netscape Communications to compensate for the lack of data protection in place on the Internet. The SSL protocol is based on encryption technology developed by RSA, Inc.

SSL will allow you to obtain information from the Online Account Access Service in an encrypted manner. This means that all data transmitted to your SSL-capable Web browser and vice-versa will be completely encrypted even while traveling across multiple networks.

Mutual fund share prices fluctuate, and there is no guarantee that the goal of any fund will be achieved. Mutual fund shares are redeemable at the then current net asset value, which may be more or less than their original cost.

Investments in the Pax World mutual funds are not FDIC insured; are not deposits or obligations of, or guaranteed by, any financial institution; and are subject to risks, including possible loss of the principal amount invested.
