Every once in a while, an article is written that wakes you up to the fact that your retirement 401k plans are funding the operations of companies that you want nothing to do with. This Huffington Post article about funding weapons companies by Kevin Short (link here) is one of those articles.
KDK Fund is dedicated to invest in companies that represent its ethical and moral standards. It believes that there is enough profit in the world to not need to invest in companies that conflict with its ethical and moral standards. Weapons manufacturers are definitely one industry where KDK Fund feels that its capital needs to avoid.
Kudos to Campaign To Unload for making this an important issue to raise.
Being proud of where and how your retirement comes from is important.
