BOSTON, Oct. 2, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Envestnet | MoneyGuide, the creator of leading financial planning software, MoneyGuidePro®, today announced a MyBlocks integration with Riskalyze which enables advisors to pinpoint an investor's Risk Number® in an effort to build a portfolio containing an appropriate amount of risk. This MyBlocks integration – one of the first outside of the Envestnet network – creates a seamless connection between a client's Risk Number and the other blocks available on the MoneyGuide platform.
"Understanding risk is an important part of a client's financial life and integrating with Riskalyze is a natural step in the development of MyBlocks," said Kevin Hughes, Chief Growth Officer at Envestnet | MoneyGuide. "This integration further expands the range of topics advisors can discuss with investors, or even allow for them to explore on their own, within the MyBlocks ecosystem. We are excited to continue to expand MyBlocks with additional integrations in the future."
The newly released block will walk the investor through the Riskalyze questionnaire assessing a client's Risk Number and then import into MoneyGuide's platform as a risk tolerance score. The advisor can then appropriately assign a risk score for the entire household and streamline the investment decision-making process. The advisor can create an entirely new financial plan, or rework their current plan, utilizing the Risk Number to determine the appropriate investments to help reach their goals.
"We're thrilled to see the Risk Number more deeply integrated into such an industry-leading financial planning platform," said Aaron Klein, CEO at Riskalyze. "The quantification of risk alignment has become an essential part of the financial planning process, and we're excited to play a role in MoneyGuide's MyBlocks ecosystem."
Envestnet | MoneyGuide released MyBlocks in July of 2019 in an effort to revolutionize the financial planning industry. Available to all financial professionals, MyBlocks allows advisors to engage prospects and clients of all ages and financial backgrounds. MyBlocks facilitates incremental financial decisions through a captivating user interface where key financial wellness topics such as: social security, retirement compatibility, college loan debt, and building an emergency fund are broken up into bite-size "blocks." MyBlocks is a separate product offering outside of the firm's MoneyGuide financial planning suite.
