Fund Architects Announces Envestnet Launch

New Relationship to Include Six Dynamic Investment Models

HEATH, TX--(Marketwire - Nov 16, 2011) - Fund Architects LLC, a provider of dynamic asset allocation portfolios designed for a broad range of investors, today announced the firm will be launching six of its dynamic investment models on the Envestnet platform.

Envestnet, Inc. (NYSE: ENV) is a leading provider of integrated wealth management solutions for financial advisors. The new relationship with Fund Architects further expands Envestnet's product offerings and access to top account managers.

The Fund Architects models will offer institutional quality money management with a wide range of portfolios designed to meet the goals of nearly every investor. Each portfolio will be constructed from a broad universe of ETFs and mutual fund managers, using fundamental fund selection and asset allocation tools.

"Our goal is to make independent, quality money management easily accessible to the marketplace," said Keith Reed, co-founder and Executive Vice President of Fund Architects, "and our inclusion on the Envestnet platform goes a long way toward that end. We're very pleased with this new relationship."

Todd Porter, CFA, a co-founder of the firm and its Chief Investment Officer, will oversee each of the models on the Envestnet platform. Mr. Porter, who served as Chief Investment Strategist at Morningstar Associates before helping launch Fund Architects, has been developing actively managed fund-of-fund asset allocation products for the last decade. With more than 20 years of investment experience and extensive macroeconomics training from the University of California, Berkeley, and Harvard University, Mr. Porter helped pioneer the process of building dynamic asset allocation portfolios.

Fund Architects, an SEC-registered investment advisory firm, was launched in 2007. The firm's strategies include strategic global diversification, dynamic allocations, high-quality active fund managers, and alternative or non-correlated strategies. Fund Architects has relationships with major custodians and clearing firms and is able to work with self-clearing and trust accounting operations.
