etirement plan specialist Diversified Investment Advisors
has added three subadvisors to its roster. The firms join existing subadvisors for the Diversified Growth & Income Fund and the Diversified Special Equity Fund.
"We've achieved outstanding success using the multi-manager approach in other funds and we expect it to benefit investors in this Fund as well," said Tom Schlossberg
, Diversified's president and chief executive officer.
Aeltus Investment Management
