The Mawer Mantra is “Be Boring. Make Money”. That’s music to the ears of many no-nonsense indexers. They believe in a simple buy and hold value based investment approach. They offer a comprehensive Balanced Portfolio for a management expense ratio of .94%. At times, they certainly can provide or create alpha. Minimums may apply.
OK, I love the cheeky claim of Steadyhand that they are not Indexers but Undexers. They believe in their style of active management, but at the core they offer a globally diversified balanced portfolio for a management expense ratio of 1.34%. They have those more reasonable fee structures to go along with sensible asset allocation. Minimums may apply.
