2013: A Year to Celebrate

Happy New Year! It’s January, and Riskalyze advisors everywhere are celebrating the first anniversary of a feature that was quite important this past year: the Interest Rate Stress Test. We thought we’d join the celebration by sharing some tips and stories about a few features Riskalyze advisors found indispensable last year.


The Risk Questionnaire was a catalyst for excellent and much-needed conversations between advisors and clients about risk and reward. Stronger relationships and deeper trust from their clients is a precious asset for an advisor building a practice. For more information on the Risk Questionnaire read our Knowledge Base article.


The Investment Policy Statement greatly helped advisors with documenting their client meetings and explaining adjustments to portfolios. But more importantly, it brought clarity and understanding to clients used to their eyes glazing over when they tried to comprehend the typical advisor report. These reports offer the most flexibility for holistic analysis of client and prospect portfolios alike. IPS reports allow for client signatures, while the Investment Roadmap excludes a signature option. Advisors use these reports to remind clients what’s been discussed regarding their portfolio and the investment decisions which have been made. These reports can be configured to include Current and Proposed Portfolios, Retirement Maps, Stress Tests, Advisory Fees, Risk/Reward Heatmap, Historical Performance Chart, and Asset Class breakdowns.


And finally, let’s not forget the Interest Rate Stress Test. It helped many advisors show clients exactly how much a jump in interest rates could affect the bond allocation in their portfolios. When the true risk of bonds was factored in, it allowed advisors to better explain why stocks, alternatives or even cash were better choices, depending on client needs. To learn more click here
