The necessary tools and data for investment selection and validation
In the current regulatory environment financial professionals cannot afford to haphazardly pick and document their recommendations. The Investment Wizard provides the tools and data necessary to systematize a compliant recommendation process.
Configurable Rules Engine
Product categories, programs, share classes, and breakpoints are just a few things that financial professionals must take into account when making fund recommendations. The Investment Wizard makes this data transparent and available so that financial professionals can feel confident in their recommendations.
Regulators expect that financial professionals are able to defend their recommendations. With the frequency of fund trades, its more critical than ever to have a systematic approach to fund analysis and recommendation documentation.
The Investment Wizard performs a pre-sale Portfolio Check that can analyze more than 20 fund and portfolio rules that are typically associated with post trade review. Providing this reporting pre-sale gives the financial professional the ability to identify and correct these potential issues before the trade is made.
In addition to Portfolio Checks, there is more scrutiny than ever on Reasonably Available Alternatives. The Investment Wizard will identify funds that are available at the licensing firm that are comparable to the selected fund, and perhaps could be a better fit based on the client’s preferences, timeline, and existing holdings.
