Investment Consulting

Market volatility makes it critical for retirement plan sponsors and fiduciaries to develop and maintain investment due diligence procedures and supporting documentation. Our consultants will work with the retirement plan committee to develop and maintain the plan's investment strategy, which is codified in an investment policy statement. This investment policy statement is used as a guide to evaluate your current investment offerings, measuring them against applicable indices, your existing provider's complete menu and the broader universe of investment options. The result is confidence that your plan's investments are diversified, well managed, and in line with the stated objectives of your investment policy statement.

We provide this comprehensive analysis by utilizing multiple tools, including Zephyr's Style Advisor, one of the most robust investment analytical tools available. Each investment is evaluated by more than a dozen different and objective analytical measurements, including:

  • Upside & Downside Capture
  • Style: Correlation & Style Drift
  • Performance: Excess Return & Tracking Error
  • Risk-Return: Standard Deviation, R-squared, Alpha, Beta & Sharpe Ratio

Performing this analysis on a regular basis is essential to documenting compliance with Department of Labor guidelines and minimizing exposure to fiduciary liability.
