Why Suitability is Replacing Disclosure in Regulation

New research has revealed deep flaws in disclosure-based risk tolerance assessment regulations, with examples from the US, UK, Europe, and Australia showing that relying on disclosures often fails to prevent harm to consumers. In fact, in some cases, the shortcomings of disclosure cause them harm.

Financial Risk Tolerance vs. General Risk Tolerance

Intuitively, it is tempting (and common) to equate financial risk taking with general risk taking. However, the two are not the same, and it is dangerous for advisors to treat them as if they are. There are several different types, or ‘domains’, of risk.

I have been using FinaMetrica for over 17 years for onboarding new clients. They like the extensive value of the reports; but what we appreciate is the innovations in technology, the value of the client-facing materials and the development of the life-long client relationships as I get to really know their behavioral tendencies. FinaMetrica has assisted me in building a very successful practice and we highly recommend it for any advisor who wants to enhance the overall value of their client relationships.
