Wall Streets first exchange-traded fund geared to animal lovers is expect to begin trading next month.

Its part of a growing wave of funds that say they pick companies likely to have a positive social impact as well as produce profits.

Managers of these funds say their investments can can generate higher returns over time because the companies focus more on long-term performance.

Beyond Meat has been abig hit on Wall Street, rising 240% since the plant-based food makers May initial public offering. Now a number of upstart investment firms are serving up vegan-themed funds, hoping investors will have the same appetite for an entire portfolio of animal welfare-conscience companies as they have for shares of the faux meat-patty maker.

The U.S. Vegan Climate ETF, which is expected to launch next month, will likely be the first that investors are served up. Its Swiss-based sponsor, Beyond Investing (no connection to the burger company), which was formed in 2017, says its purpose is to create the first ever publicly available vegan and environmentally conscious investment products, according to the firms website.

The fund will invest in many of the same stocks that are in the S&P 500, but exclude companies that Beyond Investing believes are harming animals or the environment. That seems to rule out many companies. The firm says it cut out more than 40% of 500 large companies it initially considered for the fund. Defense companies and gun makers were also barred from the portfolio. The funds ticker will be VEGN, and it will be listed on the New York Stock Exchange.

Thats not the only vegan investing option soon to be on Wall Streets menu. Investment firm Karner Blue Capital, which calls itself the nations first registered investment advisor to evaluate publicly-traded companies on animal welfare and biodiversity criteria, is cooking up a mutual fund as well. It has filed a prospectus but doesnt know when the fund will launch.

Karner Blue President Vicki Benjamin said the fund will not only exclude companies that harm animals, but also push the businesses it does invest in to improve their practices. Benjamin has experience on that front. She comes from social investment firm Calvert Investment Management, which in 2017 paid $22.6 million to settle Securities and Exchange Commission charges that it misused client assets to cover corporate expenses. Benjamin discovered and reported the fraud to the SEC shortly after joining the company in 2015.

Despite their woke investment mandatesBeyond Investments website says Animal suffering is also caused in the name of human entertainment and features a picture of forlorn-looking caged monkeycritics say the funds holdings are not that different than other investment offerings. The top four holdings of Beyonds vegan ETF will be Microsoft, Apple, Facebook and Mastercard. And while the last two may not directly harm animals, they likely allow advertising by, or process payments for companies that do.

Whats more, both funds are part of the broader expansion on Wall Street of so-called ESG funds, which say they are as interested in environmental, social and governance issues as much as profits when picking investments. ESG fund managers generally say companies that help create a better world will also be better long-term investments.

Thats still to be proven, but the early results are good. Beyonds vegan index, which was launched in anticipation of the ETF, is up 4.8% in the past year, versus 2.6% for the S&P 500.
