Supported by a proven investment methodology

Our service is premised on the consistent and overwhelming research, which shows that index funds may outperform an actively managed portfolio. We employ ETFs that track indexes for the 11 major asset classes used in our portfolios. Each ETF is chosen by our investment research team based on its relative cost, tracking error, market liquidity, and securities lending policies.
