  • How do I add fixed income securities (CDs, annuities, bonds, etc.) to my models?

    • Some fixed income positions aren't recognized by TIFIN Wealth. In order to reflect the FI position in the model, use/assign a proxy ticker instead. For example, a proxy for a CD could be a money market fund because the risk score for each would be relatively safe/conservative (typically reflected with a risk score of 1).

  • I'm receiving an error message when uploading my model/file.

    • This could be due to common errors. Make sure:

      • Any cash positions are reflected via $CASH

      • Substitute any fixed income positions with a proxy ticker instead
