Envision® Process

Wells Fargo Advisors' highly disciplined Envision planning approach offers you and your family an effective way to identify your highest-priority goals and develop an investment plan designed to provide you with the wealth you need to live your life the way you want. By blending the human dimension of personal goal-setting with innovative technology, our planning process goes way beyond simply aiming for a dollar amount to or trying to match a performance benchmark.


When your life goals change with time or if fluctuating market conditions alter your plan’s results, the Envision process offers flexibility to make adjustments as necessary.

Research1 shows that among the surveyed Envision plan holders:


agree their plan is personally tailored to meet their unique financial goals


agree having an Envision plan helps them feel better prepared for retirment


agree their plan helps them to talk to their Financial Advisor about significant life events

Results are based on a survey conducted online by Versta Research from June 5-June 22, 2019 among 457 Envision clients with Financial Advisor relationships. Results are not representative of other client experiences or indicative of future success or performance. The Envision process is a brokerage service provided by Wells Fargo Advisors.

Envision produces a personalized benchmark called "the dot," which allows you to monitor progress toward achieving your objectives, and adjust your plan should life or market changes warrant it. You can see "the dot" online and on your statements, providing an ongoing metric and immediately answering the most critical financial question: "Am I on track?"

IMPORTANT: The projections or other information generated by the Envision tool regarding the likelihood of various investment outcomes are hypothetical in nature, do not reflect actual investment results, and are not guarantees of future results. Results may vary with each use and over time.

ENVISION METHODOLOGY: Based on accepted statistical methods, the Envision tool uses a simulation model to test your Ideal, Acceptable, and Recommended Investment Plans. The simulation model uses assumptions about inflation, financial market returns and the relationships among these variables. These assumptions were derived from analysis of historical data. Using Monte Carlo simulation, the Envision tool simulates 1,000 different potential outcomes over a lifetime of investing varying historical risk, return, and correlation amongst the assets. Some of these scenarios will assume strong financial market returns, similar to the best periods of history for investors. Others will be similar to the worst periods in investing history. Most scenarios will fall somewhere in between.
