With the Envision® process, following your progress is simple. By accessing your account online, you can see a simple chart that tracks your "dot," which moves based on the value of your investments. When you find your dot is outside of the Target Zone, we can work with you to adjust your investments or your goals.
You can also think of your dot as a personal growth chart for your progress toward your financial goals. By tracking your investment results against the Target Zone, you're in a much better position to answer the question, "How am I doing?"
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.
