We use fiduciary software to monitor funds we select.  Funds receive a Fiduciary Score that evaluates funds on nine different criteria across the spectrum of quantitative data points to determine a minimum fiduciary standard of care is being met.  The nine criteria include:

  • Regulatory oversight
  • Track record
  • Assets in the investment
  • Stability of the organization
  • Composition consistency with asset class
  • Style consistency
  • Expense ration/fees relative to peers
  • Risk-adjusted performance relative to peers
  • Performance relative to peers

Our investment lineup includes funds from companies, such as Vanguard and Dimensional.  Below is a general list of funds available:
