Our Mission

To enhance the value and performance of the procurement of fiduciary support services by IFLC's members and to continuously improve their investment decision making processes.

"The characters of buyer and seller are incompatible; human nature dictates the removal of temptation."

 

Donors to charities rely on the care and competency of endowments and foundations to deploy their donations prudently.

Employers that sponsor retirement plans are stewards of their employees' money, which imposes on employers both a serious moral and legal duty.

Investment advisors, money managers, and administrative recordkeeperes can directly and greatly affect stewardship outcomes.
