Franklin, TN-based Wealth Management Executive Launches State-of-the-Art Technology Tool

that Forecasts Financial Risk for Investors

Nashville, TN – January 19, 2021 – Franklin, TN-based wealth management advisor has created a state-of-the-art technology platform that forecasts overall market risk conditions, h

elping investors to avoid dangerous market conditions. Watchpoint Analytics, a proprietary risk management engine that utilizes macroeconomic analysis to provide optimal asset allocations for investors of various risk profiles, was launched by Shaun Rowles in December 2020.

“Simply stated, as professional asset managers we created a tool that we ourselves needed to do a better job managing risk,” said Shaun Rowles. “Nashville has become an ideal ecosystem for technology innovation and fosters a strong start-up community.”

The Watchpoint models have been backtested by Refinitiv, a leader in market data analysis, and demonstrates a significant advantage to investors. The Watchpoint tool serves to inform investors when overall risk conditions become too high, indicating a high probability for losses. Avoiding dangerous market conditions makes all the difference.

The Watchpoint engine, via its underlying algorithms, has been proven to beat standard market benchmarks like the S&P 500 over the past four decades by utilizing Adaptive Asset Allocations in response to changes in the macroeconomic environment.

“The greatest investors, such as Warren Buffett, often use an approach to managing money that is very different from how the investing public behaves,” explains Rowles. “They increase risk exposure in good times and reduce risk in bad times. Adaptive Asset Allocation is a methodology that enables the average investor to enjoy better risk management and Watchpoint Analytics is the tool to help them. The difference this technology provides is profound.”

While in development, Rowles says the underlying algorithms used in this technology predicted the uncertainty in the market in early 2020 with a risk alert peaking on March 2nd as the COVID-19 pandemic began to spread in the U.S. It’s these types of uncertainties that Watchpoint Analytics can forecast well enough in advance to warn investors, much like a weather radar forecasts a storm approaching.

The Watchpoint Analytics team has recently launched the beta version of their tool for U.S. markets. The team has since developed an expanded set to include the U.K., Eurozone, Japan & China as well as two new valuation tools. The expanded suite of risk tools is scheduled to be released in early 2021.

In addition, Rowles has two white papers, "Inflation Targeted P/E” and "Extreme Valuations and Future Returns of the S&P 500" that have both become a Top 10 download at the Social Science Research Network. Furthermore, these two white papers are also being published in the International Journal of Management Research and Economics.
