Access to Experience

Touchstone helps achieve financial goals by providing access to a distinctive selection of institutional asset managers who are recognized for proficiency in their respective area of expertise.

Sub-Advisors With Active Management

Recognizing that mastery of all investment disciplines is beyond the scope of any one firm, the use of sub-advisors equips Touchstone to provide results-oriented investment expertise that we believe is understandable, repeatable and differentiable. Touchstone's investment professionals use a due diligence process commensurate with the standards and guidelines typically used by sophisticated institutional investors and are responsible for the oversight of each sub-advisor including the adherence to each fund's stated investment objective, style integrity, return objective and risk parameters. Touchstone believes that this comprehensive approach to the selection and oversight of our sub-advisors helps to maximize fund performance over the long-term.

Sub-Advisor Selection Due Diligence is Essential

Touchstone follows a diligent process when conducting a search for a new sub-advisor. Intensive evaluation leads to a selection of a sub-advisor only if the firm has demonstrated proficiency in its area of declared expertise over a sustained period of time. Specific selection criteria are developed based on the product objective and both qualitative and quantitative evaluations are performed.

We oversee each fund and each manager relative to expectations established during the selection process. A formal quantitative analysis is completed quarterly. A qualitative review in which we reassess the sub-advisor's investment capabilities and supporting infrastructure is performed at least annually.

Touchstone Funds exist to attain defined investment goals and risk-return objectives. A rigorous sub-advisor selection methodology supported by robust oversight are designed to uphold our commitment to providing access to institutional asset managers with the goal of attaining favorable long-term results.
