Main Street…Helping You Navigate Wall Street

Servicing LOSAP / Benevolent / Municipalities throughout the United States

An investment policy statement (IPS), a document drafted between a portfolio manager and a client (department), outlines the rules and guidelines that the portfolio manager must follow when considering asset allocation in the department’s portfolio. In other words, an investment policy statement outlines how a portfolio manager is to manage your department’s money.

The Components of an Investment Policy Statement (IPS) Include but are not limited to: The Purpose of the Account, Governance, Investment Objectives, and Risk Management.

The Team at Main Street Financial Group Will Assist Your Department In:
  • Reviewing Your Existing Document
  • Amending or Drafting a New Customized Investment Policy Statement Specific to the Needs of Your Department
  • Implementing the IPS & Actively Monitoring Your Departments Account(s) To Ensure That Assets Remain in Compliance with your Departments Customized Document
