The Scorecard System was created as a way to score funds based on multiple criteria commonly used today by institutional investors and money managers.
The result is a straightforward 10-point numerical scoring system that can be used to monitor funds and/or managers. The objectives of the Scorecard System are to:
- Identify skillful managers
- Enhance investment opportunities
- Manage and control risk
- Minimize exposure to fiduciary liability

Qualitative factors are important to consider alongside the more objective, quantitative analysis. Ultimately, fiduciaries need to research and understand the rating system utilized in selecting and monitoring funds, as they are all different in their construction and methodology. An unbalanced rating systems can lead investors to false conclusions.
The qualitative review process is structured in its approach and designed to identify the factors that will ultimately drive future investment performance. The three primary factors include: People, Process and Philosophy.
The baseline criteria are set for each:
Is there an experienced team with the ability to manage both philosophy and process? You must weigh factors such as changes within the firm’s leadership and organization as well as the experience and ability of a portfolio manager.
Is the process clearly defined and consistently applied? Is the process sound and established? The implementation of a strategy may be just as, if not more important than, the ideas and research supporting it.
The research and ideas must be coherent and persuasive with a strong rationale supporting past results and future performance expectations.
