Envestnet | MoneyGuide and StratiFi Launch Partnership Aimed at Empowering More Advisors to Improve Clients’ Understanding of Risk
SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Envestnet | MoneyGuide and StratiFi, developer of award-winning PRISM Rating™ technology for financial advisors, announced a new integration partnership to empower more advisors to discuss risks just like they discuss goals in the context of a client’s financial plan.
MoneyGuide’s leading financial planning software gives advisors the tools needed to help clients create a financial plan that is based on their own life goals. Through this partnership with StratiFi, risk analysis is now amplified within MoneyGuide’s software package.
“Understanding risk is an important part of a client’s intelligent financial life,” said Tony Leal, President of Envestnet | MoneyGuide. “The synchronization of clients’ risk scores across platforms enhances the planning experience by eliminating redundancy and providing more precise results.”
Of all the difficult conversations financial advisors must have with their clients, the conversation about risk can be one of the most challenging. That’s because the way advisors think of risk doesn’t always match their client’s understanding of risk. This integration helps bridge the gap. The partnership also supports StratiFi’s mission to help people have a better future, which is in line with Envestnet | MoneyGuide’s mission to help make financial wellness a reality for everyone.
“Engaging clients on the topic of risk in a meaningful way elevates the relationship between the advisor and the end client. We are thrilled about our integration with MoneyGuide as it helps advisors easily understand a client’s financial goals and guide them on the right path by digging deeper beneath the surface to see their perception of risk,” said Akhil Lodha, Co-founder and CEO of StratiFi Technologies. “Advisors can easily evaluate household accounts and educate clients by comparing different investments in real-time, helping them find the right balance between risk tolerance and risk capacity to help achieve their goals.”
StratiFi’s award-winning PRISM Rating™ technology uses proprietary algorithms, once only available to institutional investors, to analyze thousands of securities to quantify a portfolio’s correlation, volatility, tail, and concentrated stock risk into an easily understood score. These scores, along with actionable insights, enable advisors to effectively mitigate risk and communicate complex risk exposures in ways investors can understand.
