I've changed my mind and am now in favor of the merger of Citizens Funds with Sentinel. See:

http://citizensfunds.com/common/Video-agreement.htm

and click to agree you are a shareholder.

At the beginning, Sophia Collier indicates that part of the reason is her own personal decision to retire, being "51 years old and a 3-year survivor of breast cancer" and her wanting to "Step out of the business world and do something completely different with the second half of my life"

They then have many people from both Sentinel and Citizens Funds give an overview of Sentinel..which does, after all, have a history of some involvement in and caring about the environment and other socially resonsbile issues.

Have a look at the video. Other than lower pro forma fees (does that mean lower actual fees? I'd have to researc that...) I think there are reasons to believe the merger would work out as well or better than Citizens Funds staying at it alone, so my own personal view is to encourage Citizens Funds shareholds to vote for the merger.
