How We Help Not-for-Profit Entities

Advice for Fiduciaries

Often board members overseeing a not-for-profit organization have never managed money for a third party before. We offer education to help board members understand proper governance regarding not-for-profit money management.

Our services for fiduciaries include:

Money Management

We will assist the board members of a not-for-profit organization to build a professional investment program following our time-tested six step investing process.

These steps will include defining investment portfolio goals, setting risks, creating a strategic asset allocation, creating an Investment Policy Statement, selecting investment products, understanding fees, establishing re-balancing parameters and setting communication standards.

Investment Policy Statement Preparation

An investment policy statement (IPS) is a document that outlines how the not-for-profit should invest its money. It forms the guidance standards for the investment plan and sets parameters for products, strategies and fees.

We will work with the not-for-profit organization to develop a customized IPS suited to their evolving money management needs.

Reporting to the Board

Our services include regular reporting to the board or  committees of the not-for-profit organization on results of investment performance vs goals and benchmarks after fees.

We will also attend the Annual General Meetings as desired and answer questions if asked.
