NOW AVAILABLEA New Way to Advance Democracy Worldwide

The Democracy International Fund incentivizes democracy by influencing capital flows in financial markets. Our international equity portfolio is similar to other international equity index products, except it is weighted toward democracy and away from authoritarianism, with the intention of increasing the economic growth of democratic countries and the reverse for authoritarian states.

Our Mission

Shift capital flows to promote democracy and create market-based incentives for democratic reforms.

An Exclusive Partnership

Democracy Investments holds an exclusive license agreement with the publisher of "The Economist," The Economist Group, LTD, for the use of their Democracy Index for financial products globally.

In our view, the Economist’s Democracy Index is the most objective and transparent measure of democracy in existence.

A Democracy Portfolio Weighting

We use The Economist’s Democracy Index as an overlay to create an index that is the product of both market capitalization and democracy weightings.

Democracy Investments International Index®
New Democracy Weighted Index

Our proprietary methodology results in a new democracy weighted index that aligns the portfolio with country democracy scores, resulting in higher allocations in democratic countries and lower in authoritarian regimes.

In short, our product is a way for investors to feel good about investing in democracy and values such as freedom of speech, fair elections and human rights, while enjoying similar returns to a typical international equity portfolio.
