The availability of quantitative risk technology became possible through advancements in computing power, per Moores Law (which originated with Intel Co-founder Gordon Moore who observed that the number of transistors per square inch doubled every 18 months.) The ongoing revolution in technology will force advisors/reps to redefine the value that they offer by including quantitative risk management in their workflow. Not only must the management tool be scientifically credible, it must also be linked to retirement goals.

There are many building blocks of financial and retirement planning, and all must be factored into risk management, said Satchkov. Planning is where the financial advisor can put a stake in the ground, as the robo platforms dont provide this, added Satchkov.
