At Saturna Capital and the Amana Mutual Funds Trust, we endeavor to align our investments with our principles. Saturna Capital, the Funds' investment adviser, screens more than 10,000 global securities monthly. Roughly half are accepted (ranked A by analysts). Marginal issues receive rankings of B, C & D. About one-tenth are rejected outright (ranked F). Our Funds favor companies with low price-to-earnings multiples, strong balance sheets, and proven businesses.
