Our Mission and Vision

Fund Reference was conceived with the goal of providing world-class tools, education, and advice to help individuals and professionals better allocate their assets to securities that will efficiently accomplish their long-term investment objectives.

We believe that:

  • The mutual fund structure maintains several inherent advantages that can make it an optimal vehicle for allocating assets as either core holdings of a portfolio or shorter-term tactical positions.
  • Each of the two primary types of mutual funds, including index mutual funds and active mutual funds, may be appropriate depending on the goals of the investor and the characteristics of the asset class.
  • Investors can reduce fees and maximize tax efficiency through a thoughtful analysis and review of the expense structures, share classes, management styles, and general methodologies employed by various funds.

We launched with the objective of helping our audience achieve their investment goals with better insight into the mutual fund universe.
