Abstract
Purpose - The aim of the paper is the evaluation of the results of Polish socially responsible funds during the pandemic period in comparison to two previous subperiods. Research method - In the research, the nonclassical meters of investment efficiency were used. They were designed for three research subperiods. They provided the basis for creating rankings and for studying the stability of results. The results were compared with the WIG and WIG-ESG index results. Results - The studied socially responsible funds noted lower results in the period directly before the pandemic. In the pandemic period, they, however, noted higher results than the WIG index. Originality / value / implications / recommendations - The paper bridges the research gap pertaining to the research on the results of Polish socially responsible funds during the pandemic period. The article, according to the authors' knowledge, is one of the first papers in Poland which studies the results of socially responsible funds during the pandemic period. (original abstract)
