UPI Launches Investment Planning Tool

May 16, 2001 (PLANSPONSOR.com) - Universal Pensions, Inc. (UPI) announced the availability of its new version of On-Track, an online financial planning and investment allocation system.

The 3.0 version of On-Track is marketed to:

The system analyses an individual’s risk tolerance, current savings portfolio and retirement and non-retirement goals and factors the results into its projections and recommendations.

Key enhancements of the new version include:

  • an expanded report printing feature;
  • a data feed from a third party asset classifier tool that assigns true asset classes to the user’s existing savings portfolio;
  • increased illustration functionality to show how the investor’s current savings portfolio compares to the financial organization’s recommended portfolio;
  • expanded use of Monte Carlo simulation, which illustrates the probability a user has, based on all the data input of achieving his or her financial goals;
  • more powerful risk/return analysis and illustration capabilities.

The new version includes upgraded functionalities for handling:

  • qualified and nonqualified investments,
  • tax-exempt investments,
  • book versus market value, and
  • capital gains versus ordinary income tax calculations.
