The Goals-Based Advice Platform uses Milliman’s decades of actuarial expertise modelling risks for global insurance companies and applies it to retail investors for the first time. With planning tools powered by the Milliman platform, financial advisers can quickly run in-depth custom analysis for their clients, and use that insight to build relationships and inform client conversations about risk, reward and the trade-offs that accompany each decision.

Introducing A Far More Sophisticated Analysis On A Massive Scale.

Unlike overly simple traditional modelling tools, the Goals-Based Advice Platform can account for a variety of changing goals and priorities.

Enterprise-Grade Algorithms Applied To Individual Investors.

Viewed through the filter of the Platform's intelligent modelling engine, the endless possibilities that surround financial decisions become actionable insights.

Explore Possibilities and Trade-Offs With Context And Confidence.

The platform analyses thousands of possible scenarios, allowing advisers and their clients to explore the trade-offs inherent in each decision.

Help Clients Make Sound Decisions In The Face Of Uncertainty.

The Goals-Based Advice Platforms equips advisers with the ability to understand and communicate an ever changing array of possibilities and risks.

Better visibility leads to better conversations, and ultimately, better outcomes.

The end result is a more meaningful relationship with clients, providing them a higher level of service and a more holistic view of risks and rewards.
