Our software is relied upon by thousands of subscribers around the globe. The FinaMetrica Risk Tolerance profiling questionnaire has the authority of more than 1.5 million tests, ongoing scientific verification and continuous re-testing to make it the most proven risk tolerance tool in the financial services industry.
Recent awards for the ‘best risk profiling solution’ in their respective markets includes the Professional Adviser’s 2020 in the UK as well as the WealthBriefing’s 2020 awards in Switzerland.
PlanPlus Global has also received multiple awards for proprietary research in the financial planning field, such as the Academy of Financial Services Best Paper Award and the Best Applied Research Award.
