Advisor tracking stocks

Wealth management software developer Voyant, based in Texas, has launched three simulations on its AdviserGo platform that illustrate the impact of longevity, long-term care and disability on clients’ retirement plans.

The idea is each simulation provides insights, allowing advisors to “test something without making a change to the plan,” said Voyant CEO David Kaufman.

The longevity risk tool can model, for example, variable annuities and demonstrate the products’ impact on clients’ financial goals.

Showing “what if” outcomes of scenarios, with or without insurance products, helps advisors and clients have realistic conversations about financial planning, Kaufman said.

Voyant’s Canadian customers include TD, CIBC and BMO, as well as wealth management firms. In addition to Canada and the U.S., the company operates in the U.K., Ireland and Australia.
