FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WINSLOW GREEN GROWTH FUND NAMED BEST SOCIALLY SCREENED FUND OF 2006 BY KIPLINGER'S PERSONAL FINANCE
WINSLOW CONTINUES TO BUILD MAINSTREAM RECOGNITION FOR ITS GREEN INVESTING STRATEGY
BOSTON, MA, October 26, 2006 --/WORLD-WIRE/-- Winslow Management Company, LLC, a pioneer in green investing since 1983, is pleased to report that the Winslow Green Growth Fund - an environmentally responsible, small cap growth mutual fund - was named the Best Socially Screened Fund of 2006 by Kiplinger's Personal Finance Magazine, a leading financial publication and a trusted source of information for millions of investors.
The Winslow Green Growth Fund earned the recognition in the magazine's inaugural "Best Of" special report in its November 2006 issue, in which its editors and researchers pooled their collective expertise and reported their top choices for mutual funds, retirement planning tools, credit cards, and financial Web sites.
The Kiplinger's award is the most recent of a string of acknowledgments for the Winslow Green Growth Fund from leading financial information sources. In August of this year, Barron's & Value Line conducted their annual ranking of the nation's top mutual fund managers; the Fund's manager earned the #1 ranking within the aggressive growth category, and the #9 ranking overall. It was the only green investing fund, and the only "socially responsible" fund, to earn a position among the top 100 fund managers.
During 2006 the Fund earned a significant amount of mainstream attention, and was discussed or profiled by Time, The Wall Street Journal, Barron's, Investors' Business Daily, SmartMoney, Kiplinger's, Forbes, Bloomberg, CNBC, the Chicago Tribune and a variety of other publications.
The Winslow Green Growth Fund is a no-load, small-cap growth mutual fund that focuses on clean sectors such as software and healthcare technology, as well as green sectors such as renewable energy, hybrid engines and fuel cells, energy efficiency, organic foods, and green building. The portfolio manager's strategy is to find hidden opportunities among the small companies in these market niches - companies that appear poised for rapid growth, or companies whose stocks are unrecognized by the broader market. Information about the Winslow Green Growth Fund is available at www.winslowgreen.com.
Jack Robinson, lead manager for the Winslow Green Growth Fund, sees the Fund's growing visibility as a major opportunity to spread the word about Winslow's green investing philosophy and about green investing in general. "There is clearly a lot more interest in green investing, at the individual level as well as the institutional level," Robinson said. "It's important for people to realize that you don't have to sacrifice performance in order to have a green portfolio."
The Winslow Green Growth Fund is available in investor and institutional share classes, and can be purchased directly or through a number of brokerage platforms. Winslow Management Company also manages separate accounts for individuals and institutions, and a hedge fund that is open to qualified investors.
Winslow Management Company, LLC, headquartered in Boston, MA is an SEC-registered investment advisory firm that specializes in environmentally responsible, small-cap growth investing. With more than $300 million in assets under management for individuals and institutions, Winslow has been a pioneer in the field of green investing since 1983.

In connection with the Winslow Green Growth Fund, investors should call to request a prospectus that includes investment objectives, risks, fees, expenses and other information that they should read carefully and consider carefully before investing.
The Fund invests in small and medium capitalization companies. Investments in these companies involve greater risk, such as limited product lines, markets, and financial or managerial resources. The Barron's/Value Line fund manager survey screened 3,334 equity funs, eliminating funds with more than two lead managers and funds managed by managers with less that three years tenure. It also eliminated sector funds and funds with less than $100 million in assets. 505 managers finally qualified to be scored based on how much risk-adjusted value they added relative to others with the same Value Line investment objective. The Fund was subjectively awarded the Best Socially Screened Fund 2006 award by the editors and staff at Kiplinger's. Distributed by Foreside Fund Services, LLC.
