Previously, as some of you may remember, we published our annual guide as a book. Though the old format served us well, there was room for improvement. The production process took longer, meaning the book could not be sent out until March. Comparing multiple funds was difficult.

A combination of color and bold type helps you identify which funds might be right for you, and which may not.
