Matson Money Investment Philosophy
Matson Money believes that the stock market is efficient and that free markets work. Based on this belief, Matson focuses on attempting to capture market returns utilizing asset class or structured funds, seeks to utilize broad diversification, and attempts to eliminate stock picking, track record investing, and market timing from the investment process.

Matson Money manages client investments utilizing a fund-of-funds strategy. Client accounts are invested in a mix of a proprietary series of mutual funds advised by Matson, which allocate investments across three broad asset classes: domestic equity, international equity, and fixed income. Matson-advised funds seek to allocate across these broad asset classes by investing in various mutual funds or ETFs. The specific target allocation of each client’s Matson-advised strategy depends on the individual investor’s risk tolerance and investment horizon, and is selected by the client at account opening.
