CTFs offer distinct advantages over other custom asset allocation solutions including:
Scale: CTF advisors may effectively leverage their scale with significant savings in the investment management fees. Investment Options: The underlying investment options in CTFs may include low cost institutional mutual funds and CTFs with minimum investment thresholds and alternative investments. ETFs and other securities may be used within the collective funds which would not be appropriate as individual investment options within a plan. Distribution: CTF advisors have investment products, which are traded via the NSCC and may be made available on multiple retirement trading platforms. Performance: CTF advisors have an investment product with a simple NAV to NAV performance calculation. Once the funds go live a performance history is reported via Morningstar and fact sheets. Audit: Plan clients will take comfort in the independent and internal audits of the trustee and the CTFs. Regulations: Plan clients will take comfort in the well established regulatory framework for CTFs. Experience: CTFs have been included in retirement plans, including participant directed plans, for many years. Participant Advice: CTFs also lend themselves easily to advice solutions. 6 What Leads Advisors to Collective Trust Funds? Scale Alternate Assets
