Investment Due Diligence

Market volatility makes it critical for retirement plan sponsors and fiduciaries to develop and maintain investment due diligence procedures and supporting documentation. Robinson Wealth Advisors will work with the retirement plan committee to assist with the plan's initial investment strategy, which is codified in an investment policy statement. This investment policy statement is used as a guide to evaluate your current investment offerings, measuring them against applicable indices, your existing provider's complete menu and the broader universe of investment options. The result is confidence that your plan's investments are diversified, well managed, and reflect the stated objectives of your investment policy statement.


Robinson Wealth Advisors provides this comprehensive analysis by utilizing multiple tools, including the Fiduciary Monitoring Report (FiRM), proprietary investment review toolset utilizing data from Morningstar and other customized data sources. Each investment is evaluated by more than a dozen different and objective analytical measurements, including:

  • Upside & Downside Capture
  • Style: Correlation & Style Drift
  • Performance: Excess Return & Tracking Error
  • Risk-Return: Standard Deviation, R-squared, Alpha, Beta & Sharpe Ratio

Performing this analysis on a regular basis is essential to comprehensive documentation in accordance with Department of Labor guidelines and helps minimize exposure to fiduciary liability.
