About Us

Eventide Asset Management, LLC is a Boston-based Registered Investment Advisor* and serves as the Advisor to Eventide Mutual Funds. Founded in 2008 with a vision to provide high performance values-based investments** for individuals, financial advisors, and institutions, Eventide has become a leader in faith-based and socially responsible investing. Eventide is the Advisor to the Eventide Gilead Fund, the Eventide Healthcare & Life Sciences Fund, and the Eventide Multi-Asset Income Fund, and manages more than $1.7 billion in net assets.

We believe high-quality companies where we have a differentiated view from the market and that trade at a discount to intrinsic value offer superior long-term risk-adjusted returns.



The Adviser's judgment about the quality and intrinsic value of particular companies may prove to be incorrect. There is no guarantee that any investment will achieve its objectives, generate positive returns, or avoid losses.

Eventide strives to honor God and serve its clients by investing in companies that create compelling value for the global common good.



  • Eventide
    Values

  • Constantly improving

    Eventide people are those with a sense of the ideal in every aspect of their work. As a result, we take the posture of learners and constantly and indefatigably work to grow in knowledge, discernment, and competence.

  • Teachable

    In an industry often characterized by self-aggrandizement, Eventide people seek to have an accurate self-assessment, to be open to critique, and teachable. Recognizing our perspectives can be incomplete and our weaknesses often transparent, we seek to have the humility required to learn from others and thereby truly advance.

  • Bold

    Eventide people have the boldness to stand apart. Whether in our resolve to always select for investments that conduce to the human good, our focus on long-term success, or our willingness to depart from consensus opinion, we have the boldness to be singularly different.

  • Content only with excellence

    Eventide people prefer the artisan to the industrial. We pay attention to craft and detail, and seek to be rightly proud of everything we do.

  • Thoughtful

    Eventide people seek to be disciplined and rational. We seek to read broadly, contemplate from diverse vantage points, and to act thoughtfully and for good reason.

  • High integrity

    Eventide people seek to be persons of high integrity. We want to act virtuously, speak candidly, and live our authentic selves before others.

  • Collaborative

    Eventide people believe that together they can achieve more than they can independently. Therefore, we value diversity of thought, and seek to foster a working environment that is collaborative and where each contribution is important.

    * Registration of an investment adviser does not imply certain level of skill or training, nor does it imply endorsement by the SEC.
    ** There is no guarantee that the Advisor will meet its objectives.

    Mutual Funds involve risk including the possible loss of principal. Past performance does not guarantee future results.The funds’ ethical values screening criteria could cause it to under-perform similar funds that do not have such screening criteria. The funds can have risk related to option investing. There are special risks associated with investments in foreign companies including exposure to currency fluctuations, less efficient trading markets, political instability and differing auditing and legal standards.

    The Eventide Gilead Fund and Eventide Healthcare & Life Sciences Fund can invest in smaller-sized companies which may experience higher failure rates than larger companies and they normally have a lower trading volume than larger companies. The Funds can also have risk associated with the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industry in which these companies may be heavily dependent on clinical trials with uncertain outcomes and decisions made by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The Funds can invest in private companies. Private investments include various risks including but not limited to lack of liquidity, capital commitment risk, and valuation risk. Private companies may not be financially profitable and have uncertain futures, subjecting them to additional risks. Investors in the Gilead Fund should be aware that companies in the technology industries have different risks including but not limited to products becoming obsolete, and entrance of competing products. Companies in the Industrial Sector also carry various risks including, but not limited to, risk related to debt loads and intense competition.

    Investors in the Eventide Multi-Asset Income Fund should be aware that interest rates are at historic lows and may change at any time based on government policy. In general, the price of a fixed income security falls when interest rates rise. A rise in interest rates may result in volatility and increased redemptions, which in turn could result in the fund being forced to liquidate portfolio securities at disadvantageous prices. Longer-term securities may be more sensitive to changes in interest rates. The intermediate-term bond portion of the Multi-Asset Income Fund’s portfolio may represent 0% to 100% of the Fund’s portfolio with an average duration of between two and eight years. The Eventide Multi-Asset Income Fund may invest in other funds. If other funds are utilized, such underlying funds are subject to investment advisory and other expenses, which will be indirectly paid by the Fund. As a result, your cost of investing in the Fund will be higher than the cost of investing directly in underlying funds and may be higher than other mutual funds that do not invest in underlying funds. The Fund may invest, directly or indirectly, in “junk bonds.” Such securities are speculative investments that carry greater risks than higher quality debt securities. There are unique risks associated with REITs, preferred stocks, convertible bonds, and BDCs that are covered in the Fund's prospectus and SAI.

    The Eventide Multi-Asset Income Fund and Eventide Global Dividend Opportunities Fund can invest in MLPs and Yieldcos. MLPs carry unique risks including risks surrounding its tax status and risk pertaining to rising interest rates, both of which can negatively impact share price. Yieldcos carry different risks including Yieldco Sponsor Risk and cash flow risk. The Eventide Global Dividend Opportunities Fund is a new mutual fund and has a limited history of operations for investors to evaluate.

    An investor should consider a fund's investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses carefully before investing or sending money. This and other important information can be found in the prospectus, which can be obtained at www.eventidefunds.com or by calling 1-877-771-EVEN (3836).
