RiskPro® is Selected By Kovack Advisors, Inc. For Customized Cutting Edge Financial Technology in Response to Fiduciary Requirements
NEWPORT BEACH, CA RiskPro® announced an agreement to integrate with Kovack Advisors, Inc. With this customized integration, Kovack Financial Advisors will have automated access to technology that simply and visually allows clients to understand the concept of investment risk.
As the fiduciary standard is adopted across the wealth management industry, RiskPro® provides Financial Advisors with a mathematically sound approach to assisting clients in determining their Risk Profile and constructing portfolios that are aligned with the client’s Risk Profile. As a result, Financial Advisors will be able to demonstrate how they addressed the new DOL requirements, while the managing Financial Institutions will be able to monitor the process on an ongoing basis. This portfolio surveillance technology is especially appealing to firms in the industry in light of the evolving regulatory environment.
Chris Mills, CIMA®, Executive Vice President of Kovack Advisors commented,
“We reviewed many different companies in our search for a system that would monitor client risk and meet the Best Interest requirements of the DOL Rule. We concluded, that RiskPro® is by far the best. The system is easy to use and provides accurate risk measurement at the individual security level. RiskPro® makes it simple for our advisors to build and monitor client portfolios so they stay within a client’s risk tolerance. The system provides our firm’s compliance department with a complete list of all accounts that are outside of an acceptable risk range and a method of notification for each advisor to take corrective action with the process documented. RiskPro® technology saves us countless hours in monitoring our client portfolios. I strongly recommend RiskPro® to solve for your risk measurement and regulatory needs.”
RiskPro® Founder and CEO Nick Scalzo also commented, “We represent an unprecedented blend of talent and expertise from both the institutional and retail investment community. Our passion is, quite simply, improving the advisor-client experience. We empower Financial Advisors to help their clients understand their own Risk Budget and construct a portfolio with an estimated maximum annual range of returns that can be within a hundredth of a decimal point of that Risk Budget, all in a matter of minutes”
