Investment Committee

At Maplewood Financial Services we carry out research on the funds available for you to invest in.

This research is constantly monitored, and our Investment Committee meet on a quarterly basis to agree on the funds we recommend.
In our assessment we consider the following (amongst other things):
Cumulative Performance of all funds over the last three and five years
Discrete Performance of all funds over the last five years
Annual Quartiles of all funds
The Ongoing Charge of all funds
The Financial Express Rating of all funds
(Crown Rating from 1 to 5, where 5 is best)
This helps us define a short list of approved funds and from this our preferred fund list. Using the asset allocation for each risk profile and the preferred fund list we are then able to produce individual portfolios for each risk profile.
