Leverage the Power of What-If Systems

Leverage the Power of What-If Systems in Silver and TOTAL

WhatIfAskGet.pngAnswering "What-If" questions is an inherent part of planning. Helping clients understand how actions affect the outcome of a financial plan over time can be challenging. The ability to deliver transparency to the long-term impact of action is what makes What-If systems so powerful. The What-If systems in Silver, and now in TOTAL, are powerful tools advisors can leverage to educate clients on the implications of choices and bring awareness to the significance of changing assumptions.

Silver's acclaimed What-If system includes fundamental planning assumptions, allowing advisors to adjust common levers to address clients' What-If questions and provide instant answers. With Silver's focus on providing efficient big-picture planning, the What-If system is easy-to-use and clearly illustrates the impact of changes to common planning variables, such as retirement ages, saving levels, and spending. The long-term impact of making changes to the planning assumptions displays on a straightforward retirement capital graph with a corresponding Monte Carlo success rate. The retirement capital results can be compared to the original plan using a side-by-side or overlay graph. 

TOTAL Online's powerful What-If system provides the basics, and the ability to go well beyond making changes to the fundamental planning assumptions. Over 150 planning variables are available for adjustment, aligning with TOTAL's highly flexible, comprehensive financial planning capabilities. Changes to the planning assumption are illustrated in real-time, on a simple retirement capital overlay graph. The graph, along with the Monte Carlo success rate, clearly displays the long-term impact of changes. Up to two What-If scenarios can be presented in comparison to the primary planning projection.
