MoneyGuidePro® and Nitrogen Integration Helps Advisors and Their Clients Bridge the Risk Gap
Incorporating the Risk Number® into the industry’s leading financial planning software will add depth to an already strong best-interest solution while better addressing clients’ needs.
Powhatan, VA, September 12, 2017 – PIEtech?, creator of MoneyGuidePro®, today announced the completed integration of Nitrogen’s Risk Number® into MoneyGuidePro®. Fully understanding clients has become ever more critical to acting in their best interest, and helping clients understand how they would react to short-term portfolio risks can help them commit to and focus on their long-term plan. This integration brings together MoneyGuidePro®, which has created more than five million plans with over four trillion in assets, and Nitrogen, which measures risk tolerance and portfolio risk using a Nobel prize-winning framework, and offers the risk alignment platform founded on the Risk Number®.
Nitrogen focuses on eliminating emotional reactions to short-term risks, helping advisors set expectations and enabling clients to stay invested for the long term. Individual securities and investment portfolios are assessed using Nitrogen’s six-month, 95% Probability Range. This way, advisors are able to align a portfolio’s Risk Number® with the investor’s Risk Number®. MoneyGuidePro® focuses on helping clients create quality financial plans with clearly defined expectations, concerns and goals. Within MoneyGuidePro’s software, the loss/risk tolerance tools measure individual and household risk, the complete portfolio’s risk performance in the long term and a client’s probability of success. Helping clients focus on the likelihood of reaching their goals can make them less reactive to market fluctuations.
“MoneyGuidePro® is excited to be integrating with Nitrogen because it allows the advisor to seamlessly capture a client’s Nitrogen risk tolerance score, or Risk Number®, and display it on MoneyGuidePro’s household loss tolerance slider.” Tony Leal, president of PIEtech?, said. “The synchronization of clients’ risk scores across platforms will undoubtedly enhance the planning experience by eliminating redundancy and providing more precise results.”
Together the Risk Number® and MoneyGuidePro’s risk tools allow advisors and their clients to evaluate and understand how much risk a client wants, has and needs to reach their goals as defined within their plan. It also allows advisors to understand and document their clients’precise risk tolerance when addressing their planning expectations, concerns and income needs. Often, consumers are unaware of how much risk they are willing to accept on their portfolio until it’s too late. This integration helps spark interest and conversation to ensure that consumers take short and long-term risk into account and understand the impact upon achieving their goals in the holistic context of financial and retirement planning.
“We’re thrilled to work with PIEtech? to integrate Nitrogen into their planning solutions,” said Aaron Klein, CEO at Nitrogen. “We’ve really been looking forward to the day the Risk Number® meets MoneyGuidePro®, and so have the advisors we mutually love to serve.”
PIEtech and Nitrogen will be showcasing the new integration on Thursday, September 14th at 3:00 PM EDT. To learn more about this powerful integration register here to join us on the webinar Nitrogen MoneyGuidePro Integration.
