|The DFA/EFS 20/80 Portfolio provides investors with the opportunity to build wealth through a conservative risk managed approach. With 80% of the portfolio invested in fixed income assets, exposure to the stock market is limited, while the bond exposure provides a consistent stream of income for the investor. To keep pace with inflation, the portfolio invests 20% into the stock market, which raises the growth potential over that of a portfolio void of stock exposure. View returns.|

The portfolio has a healthy exposure to the stock market, with 40% of its assets diversified throughout equity asset classes, and is moderated by a strong bond presence. With 60% of the portfolio assets in the bond market, the investor can receive a consistent stream of income with protection from a downward stock market. View returns.|

Account Owner acknowledges that a wide array of investment options is made available for the investment of funds held in the HSA. Account Owner understands and agrees that the Custodian is not providing any investment advice to Account Owner or any Authorized Agent and that Custodian is not an investment adviser registered under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940. Account Owner also acknowledges that some of the mutual funds or other investment options that are offered for purchase in the HSA may pay marketing and administrative services or other “revenue sharing” fees, including but not limited to so-called “12b-1” fees to the Custodian in connection with an investment in such funds.
The investment selection and monitoring process is based on peer ranking of an investment against a set of quantitative due diligence criteria selected to reflect prudent fiduciary management. For each investment with at least a three year history, OBS Financial (an SEC Registered Investment Adviser) monitors the investments based on the following due diligence criteria: (1) Regulatory oversight, (2) Minimum track record, (3) Stability of the organization, (4) Assets in the investment, (5) Composition consistency with asset class, (6) Style consistency, (7) Expense ratio/fees relative to peers, (8) Risk adjusted performance relative to peers, and (9) Performance relative to peers.
Investments are evaluated periodically. Investments that satisfy all of the due diligence criteria receive a passing grade. OBS Financial will suggest a course of action for each investment that does not achieve a passing score. This suggestion may include additional monitoring (WATCH) of the investment, or replacing the investment in the lineup. This process is not intended, nor should it be used, as the sole source of information for reaching an investment decision. For more information on OBS Financial, please visit www.obsfs.com.
