HOUSTON—Independent broker-dealer NEXT Financial Group Inc. (NEXT), has partnered with Riskalyze to bring the benefits of advanced risk analysis to the firm’s more than 800 financial representatives.

Riskalyze, a technology company specializing in risk calculation analytics for financial advisors, was founded in 2011. The company’s patented Risk Number™ technology allows advisors to quantitatively capture a customer’s risk tolerance, align portfolios with their expectations and scientifically quantify the suitability of investments for customer tolerance. 

“Our partnership with Riskalyze is yet another example of how we’re equipping our representatives to be leaders in the industry,” said Barry Knight, president of NEXT. “Everything we do at NEXT empowers our advisors to be more effective at delivering the advice their customers need.”

NEXT is one of the first major independent broker-dealer partners working with Riskalyze to equip their advisor network with this ground-breaking technology. With drag-and-drop portfolio integration between Riskalyze and NEXT’s custodial platform, the firm’s advisors can instantly realign portfolios to fit individual customer needs.
