Risk Profiling System

My risk tolerance profiling system generates a personalized assessment of an individual’s risk tolerance. It provides an opportunity to gauge if their current investments are too hot or too cold.

The evaluation consists of two-time horizon questions and six risk tolerance questions. It only takes a few minutes to complete. Upon completion, you receive a detailed report that includes your risk tolerance score.

After you receive your score, I can transfer it to an asset allocation mapping system to convert your score to a portfolio. I then use fi360’s proposal report to compare your current assets to the portfolio generated from your risk tolerance score.

Why is Risk Tolerance Important?

Psychologist Daniel Kahneman won the 2002 Nobel Prize in Economics for bringing to light that people hate to lose money more than they like to make money. Aversion to loss is one of the reasons I ask you to measure your risk profile online. I would not want you to be holding a portfolio that is 80% stocks, which might lose 30% in a bad year when your profile indicates that you would sell everything if it dropped even 5%.

For others, the opposite is true. You might need to take more risks to reach your financial goals. As your wealth advisor, I need to alert you and give you options (e.g., take more risks, save more money, diversify your investments more). Each client’s risk profile must be respected.

Securities Licenses

Passing the exam qualifies candidates as both securities agent and investment advisor representative.

Individuals who pass the Series 7 examination are eligible to trade all securities products: corporate securities, municipal fund securities, options, direct participation programs, investment company products, variable annuities contracts, etc.

The exam measures the degree to which each candidate possesses the knowledge needed to offer the products of investment and insurance companies, including the sales of mutual funds and variable annuities.

The exam qualifies candidates as securities agent within a state. Nearly all states require people to pass the Series 63 for state registration.

I am also licensed to offer life, health, accident, disability and long-term care insurance products, as well as fixed annuities.
