Everyone Has a Risk Number®
- Do You Know Yours?

When managing your finances, achieving a balance between risk and reward is crucial. We invite you to explore our complimentary Risk Analysis Questionnaire, designed to assess your risk tolerance based on hypothetical market scenarios and your potential reactions to them. This evaluation can help you in evaluating whether your current portfolio's risk exposure aligns with your evolving financial goals.

Upon completion, you will receive a Risk Number® ranging from 1 to 99. This scale is straightforward: 1 represents a highly conservative approach with minimal risk tolerance, while 99 indicates a willingness to embrace significant risk for potential gains.

Access to this tool is available to all, regardless of whether you are a client of ours.

  • What happens after I complete my questionnaire?

    Here's where the really cool stuff happens. You and your advisor will discuss what your Risk Number® and GPA are. A GPA measures the efficiency of your current portfolio allocations (there isn't a failing grade, so no stress!). From there, we run reports and utilize a bunch of fancy, powerful tools that compare benchmarks, individual stock performances, and more.

    If you're a hands-on type of person, then all of these tools are a data-generated visual dream. 

  • Why should I take this quiz?

    This is a complimentary tool to help both investor and advisor ensure risk tolerance is aligned with the former's portfolio.

    There is no obligation or sales pitch: this is a tool created to deepen your understanding of how efficiently your portfolio is allocated and what alternative allocations may better suit you.

The Relationship Between Risk Number and Downside Risk

Risk Numbers are typically considered to be aligned with your investment portfolio if your score is within a ten-point range of the identified downside risk range. 

A Risk 61 tilts noticeably towards a higher tolerance and willingness to be exposed to market volatility. 

A Risk 38 tilts noticeably towards a lower tolerance and willingness to be exposed to market volatility. This investor is more focused on total return than significant growth potential.

A Risk 13 is indicative of a highly-conservative investor who is wary of market volatility and exposure. This ranking is quite close to the most extreme of low risk tolerances: a Risk 1.

Three points short of the highest possible risk tolerance rating, a Risk 96 investor is willing to invest aggressively with the hopes of a high stakes ROI, knowing a high stakes LOI is also possible.
