In addition to the fixed income investments already available in our core and specialty options, we offer the GuideStone Financial Resources Capital Preservation Fund2 as another low-risk investment option for conservative investors. The Fund is available only to Southern Baptist participants.
Managed Account | Do It Together
GuideStone Personal Advisory Services® is an optional, fee-based managed account service that provides a dedicated advisor, a customized financial plan and ongoing investment management for participants looking for a higher level of service. It may be helpful for those who do not have the time, interest or knowledge to manage their investments and/or financial planning decisions.

As part of the core and specialty options, we also offer tools to help you create your own portfolio that consider your financial objectives, risk tolerance and time horizon.
- Investment Recommendation tool
Our Investment Recommendation tool helps identify your investment goals and preferences through a series of simple questions and then provides a specific investment recommendation based on your current circumstances and future objectives.
- Retirement Portfolio Models
Our sample portfolio collection can inform your fund choices across major asset categories. Review each model to select a pre-mixed target allocation that fits you as an investor.
Once you select a model, you can incorporate the funds available through your retirement plan in accordance with your model’s asset class framework.
When you are comfortable with your decision, you can implement the asset allocation selection yourself through MyGuideStone® or ask for help from one of our customer solutions specialists by calling 1-888-98-GUIDE (1-888-984-8433), Monday through Friday, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. CT.

1The Asset Allocation Funds and the MyDestination Funds (“Funds”) attempt to achieve their objectives by investing in the GuideStone Select Funds. By investing in the Funds you will also incur the expenses and risks of the underlying Select Funds. The principal risks of the Funds will change depending on the asset mix of the Select Funds in which they invest. You may directly invest in the Select Funds. The Funds’ value will go up and down in response to changes in the share prices of the investments that they own. There is no guarantee that the Funds’ principal value will increase, including at the targeted date. It is possible to lose money by investing in the Funds.
The MyDestination Funds® (“Funds”) attempt to achieve their objectives by investing in the GuideStone Select Funds and other investments. The Funds are managed to a retirement date (“target date”) by adjusting the percentage of fixed income securities and equity securities to become more conservative each year until reaching the retirement year and then approximately 15 years thereafter. The target date in the name of the Funds is the approximate date when an investor plans to start withdrawing money. The expense ratio for the Funds includes the expenses of the underlying Select Funds. The principal risks of the Funds will change depending on the asset mix of the Select Funds in which they invest. You may directly invest in the Select Funds and other investments. The Funds’ value will go up and down in response to changes in the share prices of the investments that they own. The amount invested in the Funds is not guaranteed to increase, is not guaranteed against loss, nor is the amount of the original investment guaranteed at the target date. It is possible to lose money by investing in the Funds.
