Information

The Copia Income Risk Profiler is an illustrative tool designed to assist you and your clients in understanding their attitude to risk, an important step before making an investment in the Select Decumulation range portfolios.

It does not constitute advice from Copia, Novia or any other associated companies.

It is assumed that you have already reviewed your client's overall financial situation and investment needs with them and have identified that the portfolios from the Select Decumulation range are a suitable investment.

There are a number of important issues that need to be considered when investing for retirement and the Copia Income Risk Profiler may only provide information to help with some of these.

You need to confirm, by clicking ACCEPT below, you understand that:

Introduction

The Copia Retirement Risk Profiler is designed to help you offer Adviser support when Assessing Suitability for your Clients in decumulation.

You may have existing risk profiling tools but we can also help them in converting existing scores into our Risk Profiling Matrix.

The Copia Retirement Risk Profiler presents a Risk Profile score (1 to 5, where 5 is most risky) and a Time Horizon (four time horizon ranges, covering from 3 years to 25+ years), which you can use to select the Retirement Income portfolio that is most suitable for your Client.

The Copia Retirement Risk Profiler is a series of seven questions divided into the following sections:

  1. Investment time frame
  2. Knowledge and experience
  3. Investment objectives
  4. Attitude to risk
  5. Capacity for loss

See the Copia literature for a full explanation of the Safe Withdrawal Rate (95% confidence) and other important concepts in retirement planning.

* The Safe Withdrawal Rate (95% confidence) is the statistical maximum a portfolio can support such that the worst case (95th percentile) terminal value is positive at the end of the investment term. Put differently, there is a 95% likelihood that the portfolio lasts the investment term.

** The Withdrawal Rate (50% confidence) is the statistical maximum a portfolio can support such that the likely median (50th percentile) terminal value is positive at the end of the investment term. Put differently, there is a 50% likelihood that the portfolio lasts the investment term or there is a 50% likelihood that there is insufficient capital to continue to pay this withdrawal rate to the end of the investment term.

Both SWR and Withdrawal Rate (50% confidence) include an allowance for overall fees of 1%.
