IFP Research is central to the IFP investment process. A complete assessment and understanding of our clients' objectives, risk tolerance and current asset allocation are fully analyzed before moving forward with a shared course of action. Once the investment portfolio is implemented, our research team and your advisor actively monitor all aspects of your portfolio and are available to respond to any questions. Investment portfolios are reviewed semi-annually with clients so that any opportunities or issues can be discussed and rebalancing occur when recommended.
IFP Research conducts a yearly macro outlook review initiated with research from multiple leading institutions. Our macro outlook is further shaped by our own independent research and analysis within our Investment Advisory Group where our experts discuss major global market trends and share their expert yet candid views. While consensus is important, we welcome contradicting viewpoints supported by further data, documentation and discussion so that our advisors have a more complete array of insights from which to make recommendations. Our macro outlook is stress tested and tracked quarterly.

Goals, performance and benchmarks are shared regularly with clients regularly so that objectives are clear, progress is tracked and accountability standards are met.
