Overview:

Fund data as of 12/31/2020 unless otherwise specified.

Investment Objective:

The Global Impact Fund seeks capital appreciation with modest current income.

Investment Strategy:

The Fund pursues its investment objective by investing its assets predominantly in U.S. and foreign equity and debt of companies, nonprofit organizations and funds with the intention of generating positive impact in accordance with the Adviser’s Christian values, alongside financial returns. The Adviser utilizes its impact framework to assess whether its investments with nonprofit organizations and funds, and the Sub-Advisers’ investments in companies, effectively promote GuideStone's three impact themes: Sanctity of Life and Spreading the Gospel; Human Dignity and Advancement; and Stewardship of God’s Creation.

Investment Suitability:

The Global Impact Fund may be suitable for investors who have a long-term investment horizon, possess a relatively high tolerance for risk and seek to participate in the return potential of equities but want to achieve this result more slowly and with less volatility through a balanced portfolio of equity and fixed income securities. The Fund attempts to achieve its objective by combining a greater percentage of equity securities with a smaller percentage of fixed income securities and a targeted allocation to illiquid alternative investments.

The Fund’s impact investing criteria could cause it to perform differently compared to funds that do not apply such criteria. Successful application of the Fund’s impact investing strategy will depend upon the Adviser’s and each sub-adviser’s skill in properly identifying and analyzing impact investing issues. Investments made may not generate the amount of positive impact that was intended when the investment was made. Economic, market, political and other conditions and events can cause the value of equity securities to fluctuate. Securities of foreign issuers may be negatively impacted by political events, economic conditions or inefficient, illiquid or unregulated markets in foreign countries, and they also may be subject to inadequate regulatory or accounting standards, which may increase investment risk. Investing in emerging markets may involve greater risks than investing in more developed foreign markets because, among other things, emerging markets often have more political and economic instability. This Fund is subject to interest rate risk, which means that when interest rates rise, the value of the existing fixed income securities decreases and vice versa. Changes in interest rates have a bigger impact on long-duration holdings than on short-duration holdings. The Fund’s investments in private funds and similar vehicles may be difficult to value and are generally illiquid, leveraged, concentrated in an industry or group of industries, non-diversified, small- or micro-cap in size, and involve a substantial degree of risk. This description of risks is provided as a summary of the principal investment risks associated with this mutual fund. Refer to the Fund's prospectus for more detailed risk information.
