Limitations Of Popular Financial Planning Software Applications For Professionals

Today's financial planning software for professionals improves on the advice you can give instead of relying on Excel spreadsheets and heuristics like the "4% rule," but even these highly sophisticated apps have serious limitations that fiduciaries need to be aware of and address.

This presentation will take you under the hood of popular goal-based planning software and to expose important factors affecting the efficacy of retirement and other goal-based plans, and provides a framework for determining whether an app is a good fit in a fiduciary’s practice.

At this session, you'll learn about:

Published research on planning software limitations
Common simulation methodologies
Common sources of errors
Explicit versus implicit mode assumptions and disclosures
Algorithmically optimal versus practical
Choosing software best for your practice
