Covisum’s financial planning software suite includes Income InSight, Tax Clarity, Social Security Timing, and SmartRisk. With any combination of Covisum software, subscribers receive access to expert support, actionable client reports, and growth-oriented practice management and marketing resources that align with the subscription. The solutions are available via individual subscriptions, as well as through enterprise-level agreements.

“The Coronavirus pandemic highlights a basic problem with using simple standard deviation as a risk measure. It just does not capture the potential for large losses in the equity markets,” said Kendrick Wakeman, CEO of FinMason. “Covisum’s heavy-tailed risk model is designed to capture these extreme movements and give investors a more accurate view of risk, particularly over the short/intermediate term. We are delighted to help Covisum deploy this calculation to investors via our award-winning calculation platform.”
