Setting the Standard in Benefits & HR Solutions

Derivation of Touchstone

touchstonenoun

In the fifteenth century, a hard black stone called a touchstone was used to test the quality or purity of gold by comparing the color of the streak produced on it with that of a standard gold specimen of known high quality.

In the figurative sense, the term touchstone has come to denote a standard, a measure of excellence, a model, a test for the quality of something, against which other things can be evaluated.

At Touchstone Advisors, we strive to set the standard of excellence against which all of our competitors will be measured, through a level of service to our clients that is unparalleled in the small to mid-size market.
