Technology for Better Financial Planning and Products
Our current product offering consists of a lifespan and healthspan estimation tool that can be found at www.mywealthspan.com.
This calculator is used as the starting point for the financial planning process and helps drive decisions around...
The timing of Social Security income claiming
The amount of risk that is appropriate in a portfolio
The products that should be incorporated in the plan
The amount of income that can be expected
How to structure assets and accounts to minimize taxes
How to prepare for likely healthcare expenses
Face age is a good indicator of longevity. If your face age is younger than your biological age, you are likely to live longer than the average person your age.
The next product offering coming in Q4 2023 will add facial analytics and spousal comparisons to the lifespan and healthspan estimation tool that is currently live.
This will allow for a very unique client experience with a selfie being added to the questioning process. The spousal comparison is also a critical component to lifespan planning, as many spouses haven't considered the extended period of time that a surviving spouse could spend on their own.
This certainly adds complexity to the planning process but leads to a much more prepared spouse.

We're excited to be working on a holistic, full-scale planning solution that incorporates lifespan and healthspan assessments. This new project will be available in Q2 2024.
We're calling our newest project Wealthspan Score™. The purpose of the new technology is to help a client determine and quantify their preparedness for retirement. With some data inputs from advisors, they'll be able to identify the current Wealthspan Score™ for a client based on their current financial accounts and situation.
Once the current situation is known, the advisor has the opportunity to make recommendations concerning changes that could be implemented that will improve the score for each of the categories that will be analyzed by the tech, which will impact the overall Wealthspan Score™ for the client.
The goal of this technology is to educate clients about how prepared they are for retirement and give advisors an easy way to show how making small changes in different areas of their financial situation can improve their score and probability of having a successful retirement.
