Today we are excited to announce our latest integration partner, RetireUp, as they have launched a robust integration with Riskalyze into their core product. Read the full press release below.
CHICAGO, IL and SACRAMENTO, CA - October 6, 2015 – RetireUp, the innovative cloud-based platform that allows advisors to create and run detailed retirement scenarios in real time, today announced its integration with Riskalyze, the world’s first risk alignment platform for financial advisors.
“RetireUp was built to create an interactive experience between the advisor and client, while maintaining simplicity, with the end goal of providing greater value and enhancing business development,” said RetireUp CEO Dan Santner. “Our integration with Riskalyze further enhances the advisor’s value, enabling them to project custom portfolios into the full context of the retirement conversation and display them in an easily-understood way.”
RISK-TAILORED PORTFOLIOS ALIGNED WITH CLIENT RETIREMENT GOALS
With Riskalyze, advisors capture a quantitative measurement of client risk tolerance, and use that data to win new clients, capture and meet expectations and quantify suitability. RetireUp transforms portfolio risk and volatility into the centerpiece of the Retirement Income Story© - compelling discussions around the full picture of retirement income, including Social Security, Variable Annuities, Fixed Index Annuities and Pensions, as well as other assets such as REITs, home equity and small business ownership.
Retirement income models that already illustrate the many risks found in retirement – market sequence risk, inflation, healthcare expenses, premature death – now easily demonstrate risk associated with the clients’ own portfolios that have been tailored to their risk preferences.
In a market that is seeing increased competition from self-directed robo-advisors, this integrated solution offers RIAs and financial advisors a distinct competitive advantage in providing clients with essential consultation and guidance.
“RetireUp has a unique take on financial planning and has already proven to be a very popular choice among the advisors we work with,” said Aaron Klein, CEO at Riskalyze. “We think this is a uniquely powerful combination of tools for advisors to drive quantitative risk alignment and long term goals and planning.”
