Wealthcare, a wealth management innovation company, today announced that
it has launched a new client engagement tool called “PlanIt”. This new
web-based tool, accessible via,
introduces investors to the firm’s patented and distinctive Comfort Zone®
approach, while giving advisors an additional way of prospecting. PlanIt
is built into Wealthcare’s financial planning technology, GDX360®
(formerly called Financeware), which is available at:

Wealthcare differentiates goals-driven experiences with its
advisor-focused GDX360 platform. This approach unites the two pivotal
parts of goals-driven advice – planning and investing – in one connected
experience that gives advisors new ways to see, manage and grow their

“PlanIt gives advisors a simple way to introduce both prospects and
clients to the power of our Comfort Zone approach,” said Matt Regan,
President of Wealthcare. “It also gives investors a fun, game-like
platform to choose various scenarios to see how these scenarios may
impact life situations or goals. We’ve heard from our advisors that
having additional ways to attract new clients would be beneficial. It
also gives advisors the ability to directly import investor-submitted
information into GDX360 to continue the planning conversation.”

“PlanIt can be a game changer for the advisor/client relationship. It
gives clients a simple way to enter some basic information to see how
they’re progressing toward their goals,” said Ryan Oates, Managing
Partner of Water Street Financial, a firm affiliated with Wealthcare
Advisory Partners LLC. “PlanIt also opens the door to more in-depth
conversations between clients and advisors, which can lead to a better
client experience. And even a generic answer to the question, ‘Will I be
OK?’ can help clients open up about their life goals, and PlanIt can
help tear down that wall.”

PlanIt is a web-based planning game where investors provide several
inputs, including choosing different life scenarios like “Start a
Family”, “Retire Early” or “Start a Business”, among others, to
determine a basic Comfort Zone.

Wealthcare’s complete process takes a client’s plan and uses Monte Carlo
simulations to run it against 1,000 different lifetimes of hypothetical
(yet realistic) market returns. This is used to determine the plan’s
probability of exceeding the defined goals. As circumstances change in a
client’s life, so too will their Comfort Zone.
