RiskPro® Enhancements launching for Kovack Advisors at National Conference

  |   News, Press Releases

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Oct 2, 2019/PRNewswire —
The business of financial technology has been progressing at a break-neck pace recently due to start-ups, M&A activity, AI, and even looming government regulations.
Amidst swirling technology advances sits the average investor with their well-known cycle of emotions of optimism, excitement, doubt, fear, panic, and capitulation. These emotions trigger investor behaviors that can sabotage a well-thought-out financial plan.
RiskPro® CEO Nick Scalzo found that this cycle of emotions has a common thread, a simple lack of understanding. He states, “How can an investor not feel emotional unless they know (in actual dollar-terms) the potential gain or loss of their investment? We created RiskPro® to allow advisors the ability to break the damaging emotional cycle fueled by investor lack of understanding and accountability.”
Chris Mills, CIMA®, EVP at Kovack Advisors, Inc. says, “We are dedicated to supporting our independent advisors and are excited to offer technology that has a positive effect on their client relationships.” Mills pointed out their firm believes in Proactive Compliance, “RiskPro® supports strong relationships, not just between our advisors and their clients, but also our advisors and our home office associates.”
Scalzo, a featured presenter at the Kovack 2019 National Conference this week, adds, “A symbiotic relationship between independent advisors and their back offices happens organically with RiskPro’s Perpetual Suitability™, that derives from our cutting-edge compliance and surveillance tool monitoring client accounts running thru RiskPro® every trading day.”
