As it pertains to the Open/Transfer Account feature, it is important the you build models associated with all the risk tolerance levels offered in your dashboard. You select the risk tolerance level for a model when you go to build a model. The risk tolerance level options include: Preservation, Conservative, Moderate, Moderate Growth, and Aggressive. It is recommended that you build at least one model for each risk tolerance level for your Open/Transfer feature to work without issue. If you do not have a risk tolerance level for one the above categories but your client or prospect falls within that risk tolerance range, they will not be able to be matched to a model portfolio and thus, will not be able to continue through the process. If you want to make a model with 100% sector equity your conservative model, more power to you. The risk level itself is determined by you the adviser.
The risk level categories themselves fall within the below range:
Preservation: 0% - 20%
Conservative: 21% - 40%
Moderate: 41% - 60%
Moderate Growth:61% - 80%
Aggressive: 81% - 100%
Your contacts can fall into each category by answering the risk tolerance questions you selected in the Questionnaire section.
