What does SmartRisk do?

SmartRisk uses a heavy-tailed model to provide more precise portfolio risk measurement, because the actual risk of big losses in client portfolios is much greater than the standard deviation calculation would suggest. SmartRisk doesn’t show what we think will happen; it’s what could happen. This more realistic estimate of risk allows advisors to have a conversation with the client in advance of the next downturn, and set reasonable expectations. In addition, once an advisor sees that much larger downside possibility, they can start looking for ways to mitigate the risk.
