What's Your Risk Number?

Budd, Melone & Company Portfolio Risk Compatibility Software

Did you know human beings are twice as concerned about avoiding losses than they are about achieving potential gains?

 That’s one of the reasons humans tend to sabotage their own investing — selling when they get scared, missing the recovery, and buying back in when the markets “feel safe” again. 


Building Your Investment Strategy Using Budd, Melone & Company's Portfolio Risk Compatibility Software

Built on a Nobel Prize-winning framework, our software quantifies the semantics of the financial advice industry, replacing confusing and subjective terms like “moderately conservative” and “moderately aggressive” with the Risk Number, a number between 1 and 99 that pinpoints your exact comfort zone for downside risk and potential upside gain. We then build an investment portfolio to match your Risk Number and chart a clearly defined path to the your goals.



We Use A 3 Step Process

Step 1: Capture Your Risk Number®

The first step is to answer a 5-minute questionnaire that covers topics such as portfolio size, top financial goals, and what you’re willing to risk for potential gains. Then we’ll pinpoint your exact Risk Number to guide our decision making process.

Step 2: Align Your Portfolio

After pinpointing your Risk Number, we’ll craft a portfolio that aligns with your personal preferences and priorities, allowing you to feel comfortable with your expected outcomes. The resulting proposed portfolio will include projections for the potential gains and losses we should expect over time.

Step 3: Define Your Retirement Goals

We will also review your progress toward your financial goals by building a Retirement Map. When we are finished, you’ll better understand what we can do to increase the probability of success.


IMPORTANT: The projections or other information generated by Riskalyze regarding the likelihood of various investment outcomes are hypothetical in nature, do not reflect actual investment results and are not guarantees of future results.
Your Risk Number provided is on a scale of 1 to 99, with higher numbers indicating higher risk tolerance.
Scenarios illustrated are hypothetical and not representative of any specific investment or investor. Individual results will vary.
Investing is subject to risk which may involve loss of principal. No strategy assures success or protects against loss.
