“I have been using FinaMetrica for over 17 years for onboarding new clients.

FinaMetrica has…

“A couple we have worked with for over 20 years was originally resistant to taking yet another risk tolerance questionnaire; however, they completely changed their attitude by the end of the review. They even followed up with a highly complimentary email about their experience, writing: “We just wanted to share with you…that this is probably…

“The FinaMetrica questionnaire adds hugely to the meetings we have with our clients. They buy into and even enjoy the conversation; they understand the reason behind the questions – and the relevance of them. They understand that if my team is to provide suitable advice, we must understand who they are, what they want and…

David Yeske > Yeske Buie, Washington, DC & San Francisco, California, USA

“Our existing clients LOVE the FinaMetrica Risk Tolerance assessment! We discovered we have a deeper connection with a prospect from the minute they arrived in our office. It’s been a powerful way to differentiate ourselves and it has improved our propensity to receive referrals.”

Paul Duckworth > Independent Financial Adviser, Grimsby, UK

“Some time ago I had concluded that the only way to get a proper view of a client’s risk tolerance was by some kind of psychometric testing, but that is as far as I got. I did not have the time or resources to take it further. Then a magazine article put me onto FinaMetrica,…

Tim Walsham > Claritas Wealth Management, Cheshire, UK

“Adoption of FinaMetrica risk tolerance assessments has been one of the best things we have done in the last 20 years. Our clients are reacting to the current downturn in exactly the way that we would hope, i.e. ‘I’m not happy that my investments have dropped in value by x% but you did tell me…

Paul Salisbury > The Insight Group, Salt Lake City, Utah, USA

“The Insight Group, Inc. has integrated the FinaMetrica risk appraisal tool into our process for quite some time now. We find that clients, in a moment of courage, express how they would like to behave; but not generally how they actually behave to changing market conditions. This tool helps us to assess clients’ actual behaviour…

Andy Jervis > Chesterton House Financial, Leicester, UK

“The FinaMetrica risk assessment is a real aid to understanding clients’ attitudes to risk. Its strength is in helping to deepen the client relationship by greater understanding, especially by clients of their own attitudes. Compliance is a big issue, and the independent nature of the report is of great value for this purpose.”

Dan Hardt > Dan Hardt Financial Services, Louisville, Kentucky, USA

“FinaMetrica is an indispensable part of my business. I must have an objective view of the risk tolerance of my clients and prospective clients. It seems to me that FinaMetrica provides this in a state-of-the-art manner. I value the way they score each person as a percentile and not some vague term like “aggressive” or…

Tim Page > Page Russell Ltd., Suffolk, UK

“The FinaMetrica system lets you look under the hood. There is a mountain of information on their website explaining the methodology behind their system. As we are not experts in psychometric analysis, it is tempting to dismiss all these systems as pure bunkum. The information that FinaMetrica provides has been a useful education and crucial…

Warren Shute > Lexington Wealth Management, Lydiard Millicent, UK

“A financial planner’s relationship with their clients is of paramount importance. To have a great relationship, we need clarity and that’s where FinaMetrica helps to communicate clearly the complex area of risk tolerance. To truly understand how much risk one is comfortable to accept, not only now, but at the market’s worst, provides for a…

Kevin Kennedy > Kevin Kennedy LLC, Alameda, California, USA

“FinaMetrica gives me a deeper and more realistic read on my client’s tolerance for risk than traditional risk tolerance questionnaires. Clients have also commented to me that they enjoy the insightful questions FinaMetrica asks, and it has helped them think about their views of risk.”
