In an effort to provide you and your clients with alternatives to the PCA Dimensional portfolios, the Investment Committee has created a menu of ETFs portfolios in alignment with our evidence based investment philosophy with asset allocation, geographic exposure, and “tilt” (toward small and value) similar to Dimensional model portfolios we manage.

  • Moderate (60/40)
  • Balanced (50/50)
  • Conservative (40/60)
  • Stable (20/80)

These ETF portfolios will have an account minimum of $25,000.
