No. Think of TrueProfile as like a blood test for a physician—it provides critical, precise information about the patient, but it isn’t the only information a physician would use to form a diagnosis and treatment path. The physician will take the patient’s vitals and medical history into consideration, as well.

In the same way, you should consider the risk required for a client to reach their goals. You should also consider the client’s risk capacity (what is their ability to withstand losses?). These calculations lie outside the scope of TrueProfile Risk Essentials.

At the end of the day, TrueProfile provides you with critical information about your client’srisk preferences that you can’t get by other means. But, you should synthesise TrueProfile information with other client information, and apply your judgment when investing theclient.
