We align the world’s investments with investor risk tolerance.
Despite all of our advances in technology, the world still invests the vast majority of its financial assets using a combination of gut instincts, hunches, emotionally-driven decisions and “what we learned in college.”
As a result, when markets pull back, investors typically pull the plug—locking in horrible losses, sitting out the recovery and waiting until the market “feels safe” again to reinvest at the top, and repeat the cycle.
Riskalyze is transforming the advisory industry by empowering investment advisors to capture a quantitative measurement of client risk tolerance, and use that data to win new clients, capture and meet expectations and quantify suitability.
Our core technology is built on the academic framework that won the Nobel Prize for Economics in 2002. Our customers used that technology to build more than $2 billion in portfolios in 2012. Visit riskalyze.com
