Adding and Editing Asset Classes

Adding and Editing Asset Classes

Asset classes give a user-friendly name to Instruments and also allow you to collect your Instruments into groups to be used by your Models.

Adding New Asset Classes

To add new Asset Classes:

  1. Navigate to Grow Practice > Customization > Asset Classes.
  2. Click + Add New in the upper right.
  3. Fill in the necessary content in the available fields. Do not Add Instruments yet.
    • Name: Give a name to the Asset Class.
    • Category: Assign a category to the Asset Class; Cash, Bonds, Stocks, or Other.
    • Platform Color: The color this Asset Class will appear on the Wealth Platform. Does not affect Client Portal coloring, which is determined by the Category setting.
    • Sort Order: Lower numbers appear first. Default is 1 – cash, 2 – bonds, 3 – stocks, 4 – other.
    • Limit change from recommended value: The percentage an Advisor can re-allocate this Asset Class in the Portfolio Builder. For example, if this value is set to 20, the Asset Class can be adjusted to be 20% more or less of the portfolio than the default. Set to 0 (zero) to prevent changes to this Asset Class in the Portfolio Builder.
    • Description: Provide an overview of the Asset Class.

    If you wish to add Instruments to this Asset Class later or reassign existing Instruments, click Create and return to list. Instruments for this Asset Class can be created, added, or adjusted from the Instrument List tab later.

  10. Click Create and return to list to finish.
