Here’s what thought leaders have said…

A big fan

“I’m a big fan of ‘The Big Picture’. Besides illustrating very quickly the effect of assumption changes on withdrawal rates, it’s a lot of fun to use. I wish I’d had access to it in the 1990s, when I began my research on the so-called ‘4% rule.’ It would have saved me many hundreds of hours of grueling work. Should be a great tool to use with clients, as well.”

William P. Bengen
CFP, Creator of the “4% Rule”

This is not a fantasy

“Wouldn’t it be nice if you could take a prospective client’s asset allocation and calculate the percent of time periods since 1926 that it would have survived a 30-year retirement?

This is not a fantasy.

I can picture a time when most financial planners routinely use the Big Picture to explore portfolio choices with their clients.”

Bob Veres
Financial Advisor & Writer

Empirically sound

“If your retirement plan would have depleted your client’s funds using historical data, you should abandon it. The Big Picture does this test for you – quickly, intuitively and with an empirically sound framework.”

Robert Huebscher
CEO, Advisor Perspectives

Clients relate

“Monte Carlo is a hypothetical projection based on assumed inputs. Clients relate more to the historical perspective that the Big Picture illustrates.”
