Riskalyze kicked off the “Fearless Investing Summit” at the Hyatt Regency in Lake Tahoe last week by welcoming Shark Tank star Daymond John, former Washington Redskins Quarterback Joe Theismann, and a variety of industry thought leaders to the main stage. The three-day event covered topics including advisor marketing, women in the advisory industry, the DOL fiduciary rule, advisor marketing, behavioral finance and financial technology. This was the first-ever customer conference for Riskalyze, with over 400 in attendance.
Riskalyze CEO Aaron Klein unveiled Riskalyze Retirement Solutions, a joint offering from Riskalyze and Vestwell, a pairing he claimed as “the industry’s first end-to-end digital 401(k) experience built around the Risk Number®” “Advisors have been using the Retirement Plans feature to serve plan participants at scale, but now will be able to serve the plan itself with a Risk Number-centric managed account offering,” Klein said. Launching later this year, Riskalyze Retirement Solutions will be available to all advisors with a Riskalyze license at no additional cost.
“After going through the process of setting up a 401(k) for our own employees, we saw an industry in need of serious disruption. If we’re going to empower the world to invest fearlessly, we need to reach the 401(k) and equip advisors to serve plans,” Klein said. “We couldn’t be more excited to partner with Vestwell, one of the incredible innovators in our industry, to create an end-to-end digital 401(k) experience built around the Risk Number.”
“At Vestwell, our number one priority is providing financial advisors with retirement technology that removes the administrative burden of implementing and servicing retirement plans,” said Vestwell CEO Aaron Schumm. “We’re thrilled to reach more advisors through our partnership with Riskalyze, an industry leader whose mission of equipping advisors with outstanding risk assessment technologies mirrors our own core values.”
In his keynote address, Klein also announced several enhancements to the Riskalyze platform, which are all either live today, or will roll out in customer accounts over the coming few weeks:
“We’re excited to share these new products and enhancements at our inaugural Fearless Investing Summit this week,” said Chief Investment Officer Mike McDaniel. “Our track record of delivering rapid innovation for the advisors we love to serve is unparalleled in our industry, and we look forward to continuing that leadership for a long time to come.”
