Goal-based planning with OPAL platform

Ortec Finance offers an investment decision and goal-based organisation support tool through the OPAL platform, which meets diverse business model requirements and a vast array of virtual advice plans.

The platform simplifies each stage of a goal-based consultative process, from a consumer intake unit and risk-profiling tool to virtual consumer reporting and proactive monitoring.

Our solutions use analyses that consider all possibilities to help our advisors and customers better comprehend their options. Coherent visual aids highlight the existing position and consequences of investment decisions, alterations in a consumer’s financial state and market developments, on the prospect of reaching financial goals.

OPAL solutions and types of planning

OPAL solutions vary from holistic financial planning to sophisticated wealth planning. Both units allow commercial organisations to translate clients’ personal goals into an ideal monetary plan, with the ability to monitor set objectives over time. In wealth planning, the definition of an optimal investment portfolio is the focal aim.

The OPAL financial planning unit also provides a module in cash flow planning, which offers a universal view of the consumer situation, addressing risks from investment and income. OPAL wealth / financial planning can serve as two single units or as one fully cohesive solution.

Advisers and customers can reliably capture, measure and communicate risk and return through OPAL platform, as well as act in line with modern regulatory frameworks. The client-centric attitude also increases the chance of meeting the expectations of the client, which has a demonstrated positive effect on commercial retention.

Industry-led solutions for goal-based wealth and financial preparation

The OPAL platform is in effect in various countries. Its provides numerous currencies and language packages, as well as country-specific products.

Scalable solutions for every advice channel

OPAL goal-based planning offers a wide variety of virtual advice schemes, as well as capability for diverse business models. The programme supports financial assistance using advanced application programming interfaces (API) and a contemporary graphical user interface.

Advanced APIs for integration, optimisation and calculation

The OPAL platform offers a calculation engine through three API units presented in a private Cloud or on-site. The modules include financial planning, wealth planning and optimiser and automated device, and are aimed towards calculation, optimisation and integration.

Institutional-grade economic scenarios

The OPAL engine offers access to Ortec Finance’s Dynamic Scenario Generator, an innovative stochastic projection engine that produces institutional-grade everyday financial scenarios, which reflect potential future advances and are constructed upon sophisticated analysis of past behaviour.

Combined cash flow and wealth planning

As well as providing information on present and future cash flow situations, OPAL also distinguishes itself from all other financial preparation tools through the integration of the effect of investment threats on the understanding of financial income goals.

24 / 7 monitoring, alerts and calls for action

The OPAL platform automatically oversees and controls the customer’s financial state and goals, providing non-stop around-the-clock monitoring of all aspects involved in ideal client management.
