Our Goal: Superior Performance at Low Cost

We’re committed to holding fees down while offering a time-tested approach that seeks to maximize your returns and manage risk.

We offer mutual funds with no loads or sales charges and expense ratios below their Lipper category averages.*

A load is a commission on the price of a mutual fund's shares that is generally used to compensate the selling broker. Since we sell direct to you, we can offer funds without loads that will reduce the amount of your returns.

We keep expense ratios low.

Over 75% of our funds for individual investors have expense ratios below their peer category averages.* Detailed information on our funds’ fees and expenses can be found in their prospectuses.

Our low investment minimums make it easier to get started.
