Investment Policy Creation
We write and maintain a formal Investment Policy Statement (IPS) for each of our clients. During IPS development, we work with your Committee to develop:
- A customized asset allocation strategy
- Investment manager selection and monitoring criteria
- Appropriate benchmark selection
- Manager/fund replacement criteria
The Investment Policy Statement criteria is embedded into our quarterly monitoring system ensuring a formal fiduciary governance process.
