Capital Management

Stephens Choice

StephensChoice is a quality process for selecting and monitoring actively managed mutual funds. Our objective is to build a "Best of Breed" portfolio of actively managed funds across an array of asset classes. As a turnkey solution for your retirement program, the StephensChoice program provides a full range of plan education services. We have alliances with third party administrators which provide plan administration.

The investment platform enables investors to build an asset allocation that provides diversification and market return exposure for their risk tolerance and time horizon. To simplify the asset allocation decision for investors, our investment professionals have developed five Lifestyle Asset Allocation Models that provide appropriate allocations for the risk tolerance and time horizons of typical investors using the actively managed funds identified through the StephensChoice process.

Once chosen, selected actively managed funds are regularly monitored in a thorough and demanding manner. Actively managed funds unable to meet our high standards are replaced.

Disclaimers:
1 Stocks of medium-sized companies may be more volatile and less liquid than large company stocks.
2 There are additional risks associated with investments in smaller and/or newer companies because their shares tend to be less liquid than securities of larger companies. Further, shares of small and new companies are generally more sensitive to purchase and sales transactions and changes in the issuer’s financial condition and, therefore, the prices of such stocks may be more volatile than those of larger company stocks.>
3 Investing in foreign securities presents certain risks that may not be present in domestic securities. For example, investments in foreign and emerging markets present special risks including currency fluctuation, the potential for diplomatic and political instability, regulatory and liquidity risks, foreign taxation and differences in auditing and other financial standards.>
4 Investing in foreign securities presents certain additional risks that may not be present in domestic securities. For example, investments in foreign and emerging markets present special risks including currency fluctuation, the potential for diplomatic and political instability, regulatory and liquidity risks, foreign taxation and differences in auditing and other financial standards. In addition to the greater exposure to the risks of foreign investing, emerging markets present considerable additional risks, including potential instability of emerging market countries and the increased susceptibility of emerging market economies to financial, economic and market events.>
5 Investing in foreign debt obligations entails additional risks, including those related to regulatory, market or economic developments, foreign taxation and less stringent investor protection and disclosure standards.>
6 Investing in debt (bond) obligations entails additional risks, including interest rate risk such that when interest rates rise, the prices of bonds and the value of bond funds shares can decrease and the investor can lose principal value.>
