Accurate Risk Tolerance Questionnaire
Preferences change all the time, therefore it’s impossible to score a questionnaire based on preferences alone.
Based on our academic research, a household has one life event annually that will impact their overall risk objectives. Totum scores a client’s risk capacity (life situation) and risk preferences along with the portfolio to allow an advisor to accurately place their client in the right investment portfolio.
There are 11 questions all with their own academic quantitative models that flow through our algorithm for a more compliant score. Along with a 12th question on Financial Planning Goals. Advisors can add their own questions to find out more about a prospect or client. Finally, we archive all questionnaires for your records.
Totum Risk is listed in the FINRA Compliance Vendor Directory.
