Proprietary scoring helps guide investment selection

Our fiduciary solutions are supported by our ERS SCORE™ Methodology, designed to evaluate and monitor investment options in qualified retirement plans. Our Methodology is focused on quantitative and qualitative factors and applies them to the broad universe of investable assets used to evaluate all plan designated investment alternatives.   The ERS SCORE results are continually vetted and refined, placing a premium on managers with the following characteristics: Effective and consistent risk control Efficient risk-return profile Reasonable fee structure Stability

Ranking methodology

To supplement our SCORE process, Envestnet has a proprietary ranking methodology that governs the process we follow when funds need to be replaced in a lineup. This methodology identifies our highest conviction strategies across a broad set of asset classes and results in our ERS Select List. We draw from our Select List and choose our highest conviction product at a given recordkeeper when replacing a fund that no longer meets our SCORE requirements.

Plan-level models

We offer a series of retirement models—five risk-based models and three target-date suites—both unitized and non-unitized, to retirement plan advisors and plan sponsors. Our unitized models are provided through Matrix and Schwab. Our non-unitized models utilize the recordkeeper to allocate the underlying investments based on the asset allocation supplied by Envestnet.   With our target-date suites, we build portfolios that gradually shift the asset allocation as a client moves closer to retirement. A typical portfolio will include a diversified selection of strategies from various asset classes. Generally, the further from retirement a client is, the more equity exposure will be included. The portfolio shifts to a more conservative allocation as a client moves toward retirement.
