Investment Risk Analysis - Stress Testing Your Portfolio and Financial Plan

How secure is your retirement plan?

By stress testing a retirement plan with a Monte Carlo analysis, investors can feel more confident their portfolio can withstand a variety of different market conditions without jeopardizing their financial goals. Depending on the complexity of your situation, a full financial plan may be advisable.

Basic compounding calculators (e.g. 6% annual return for 30 years) omit a key part of the retirement planning equation: markets go up and down. A Monte Carlo analysis takes market volatility and cash flows into account to get closer to determining a safe, risk-adjusted withdrawal rate.


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

A Financial Fiduciary Always Acts in Your Best Interest

As a financial fiduciary, 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.


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.
