We always push for the lowest share class available and recommend a combination of passive (Index) funds and actively managed funds, which gives participant’s the best mix of solid, low-cost investment options and high-performing, market-leading funds.
Passive (Index) mutual funds are funds that are built to mirror a specific market index and perform in-line with that index, without any active fund management decisions. As a result, these funds are lower cost to participants.
Actively managed mutual funds are managed by an investment manager or team who makes the decisions on how and where to invest the fund’s money. These funds are more costly due to their active management, but may provide superior performance.
We utilize top-of-the line investment evaluation software from industry leader Fi360 to ensure the investments in your plan continue to remain of high-value to plan participants, performing at their maximum level relative to the category risk.
