Portfolio Screening

Are you making a critical mistake in your portfolio?

Whether you’re a DIY investor or using an advisor, how do you know if you’re taking unnecessary risks with your portfolio?

How do you know you’re not limiting your investment returns because you overlooked something or if you’re portfolio isn’t setup properly?

Who can you even ask?

With Portfolio Analytics, we’ll automatically analyze your existing portfolio and inform you of any dangers and opportunities that we see. 

For example, we’ll tell you:

  • If you aren’t properly diversified.
  • If you’re too concentrated in any particular country (i.e. taking on excess risk).
  • If you aren’t using sufficient asset classes and/or tax advantaged accounts
  • How your portfolio compares to a suggested asset allocation.

Portfolio Analytics provides Independent opinions on current portfolio allocations.

Who is this for? Portfolio Analytics is an optional upgrade intended for:

  • An investor looking for an independent second opinion on their portfolio.
  • A do-it-yourself investor who wants to ensure they are on the right track.
  • An individual going through a transition phase in their investment journey or implementing a new strategy.
  • Anyone that simply wants an expert and unbiased 2nd opinion of their portfolio for peace of mind.

Ten years ago I was forced from work due to illness, at the age of forty with three young children, my financial situation was very precarious. My wages were reduced by 50% and I had never invested in the stock market, it was imperative that I did something to supplement my income. With great views from you and lots of reading and research, I was able to learn enough to almost return my earnings to their original levels.

Understand what you actually own

Portfolio Analytics looks under the hood of all the funds that you own, and understands the risks that you might not even know exist.

If you hold multiple diversified funds, it is very hard to understand what your regional, sector and even asset class exposures really are.

For example, each fund that you own can have hundreds of bonds and/or stocks within it, spread across different sectors and countries. If you own multiple funds, how do you know that you aren’t overconcentrated in any particular asset class, country, or sector? You could be taking on enormous unnecessary risk without even knowing it.

We breakdown all the funds you (and your household) hold by sector, geography and asset class, allowing you to see holistically if you are over or under-concentrated in any particular area.

We’ll warn you if any concentration issues exist, and tell you what’s driving them, allowing you to quickly optimize your portfolio and decrease the unnecessary risk.
