Accurate and Relevant Risk Tolerance Questionnaire for Financial Advisors

We believe risk tolerance questionnaire's are broken and not accurate. Totum Risk built a new relevant questionnaire to help advisors really know their client.

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.

Relevant Questions

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.

One of the most persistent challenges for advisors is to get an accurate gauge of a client’s risk tolerance. With a fresh approach to risk analysis, Totum is a promising new addition to the advisor tool kit.
