Wealthcare Capital Management Introduces Financeware 2.0

Foremost Goals-Based Investing and Wealth Management Software Eliminates Complexity, Empowers Advisors to Grow Their Businesses While Helping Clients Visualize and Achieve Long-Term Objectives

RICHMOND, VA and PHILADELPHIA, PA--(Marketwired - Nov 19, 2015) - Wealthcare Capital Management (www.wealthcarecapital.com), a nationally recognized wealth management firm, today introduced Financeware 2.0 (FW), the next generation of the industry's leading goals-based investing and wealth management software for enterprises, advisors and their clients. Launched in 1999, Financeware is currently used by more than 30,000 financial professionals with over $1 trillion of assets connected to nearly a million plans.

Highly customizable and infinitely scalable, Financeware 2.0 answers an overwhelming market demand for an easy-to-use, powerful tool that helps advisors manage clients' expectations and behaviors while providing personalized counsel that integrates with investment strategies.

The Money Management Institute (MMI) reported that only 1 out of 5 U.S. investors, and 12% globally, believe they are wholly prepared to reach their goals. In a recent paper titled, The Performance Paradox, the MMI states that when investors focus solely on the returns element of performance, they not only achieve sub-optimal outcomes, but also hinder their ability to achieve long-term goals.

"The investment industry is experiencing a paradigm shift driven by multiple macro forces causing investors to seek out more holistic investment guidance," said Michael Ashker, Wealthcare Capital Management CEO. "Financeware 2.0 offers a dynamic, life-long process that aligns advisor and investor interests.

"Real performance should be measured by helping clients achieve their life goals -- not just tracking an index."

With Financeware 2.0, clients and their advisors will have access to myriad new modules, such as the highly visual and interactive life-goals selector called the Dreamboard, the "What If" Command Center, as well as the newly designed Comfort Zone® indicator. Wealthcare's proprietary Monte Carlo simulation engine, which powers FW, is capable of running 100,000 life time simulations in seconds, whereby various investment models are connected to each client's specific goals, market volatility, risk tolerance, with metrics resulting in a dynamic ComfortZone® score.

FW eliminates the complexity common to other planning software applications. A redesigned user interface, which features the interactive Dreamboard, is intuitive and visually engaging. Streamlined navigation enables advisors to present clients with a detailed, yet easy-to-understand roadmap that provides not just a snapshot of short-term performance, but also the alignment of current investments to long-term financial objectives.

An expansive API library allows enterprise customers to enjoy true customization and the deepest levels of integration, and by extension, the ability to create their own brand-centric approaches to goals-based wealth management. 

ComfortZone® "Where's My Dot?" monitoring manages future confidence to achieve life goals while avoiding excessive risk and lifestyle sacrifice. This approach transforms advisor-client conversations to focus more on life goals than market performance.

Financeware 2.0 empowers advisors to not only deliver an exceptional customer experience, but also the means to handle more clients with greater efficiency. In addition to strengthening client relationships, FW helps uncover and consolidate hidden assets, as well as cross-sell new investment services such as insurance (life, long-term, disability, health, and analysis), tax, estate planning, social security optimization, and other products conducive to a family's financial success.
