Investment Risk Analysis - Stress Testing Your Portfolio and Financial Plan

Stress testing your financial plan

To help assess the feasibility of your retirement and financial goals, we develop a comprehensive financial model to include pre-retirement income and expenses, anticipated living expenses in retirement, contributions to investment accounts, projected Social Security benefits, taxes, life expectancy, inflation, etc. Detailed assumptions about the standard deviation and average expected annual return are added to the plan at the account level.

Stress testing a financial plan and retirement projections can help investors feel more confident in the likelihood they won’t run out of money under different conditions in the financial markets. Learn more.

Fee-Only Financial Advisor

As a fee-only financial advisor, we do not sell securities, investment products, or receive commissions or compensation from 3rd parties.

Fiduciary Investment Advisor

A fiduciary duty means we are legally bound to act at all times for the sole benefit and interest of our clients. This is the highest act of loyalty, trust and care under the law.

Independent Wealth Management

We are also completely independent, so you don’t have to worry about fund family allegiances or other corporate actions that could distance us from our clients.
