*Results are based on a survey conducted online by Harris Poll from June-August 2014, among 616 investors with Financial Advisor relationships. Results are not representative of other client experiences or indicative of future success or performance. The Envision process is a brokerage service provided by Wells Fargo Advisors, LLC.
The projections or other information generated by the Envision tool regarding the likelihood of various investment outcomes are hypothetical in nature, do not reflect actual investment results and are not guarantees of future results. Results may vary with each use and over time.
Based on accepted statistical methods, the Envision tool uses a simulation model to test your ideal, acceptable and recommended investment plans. The simulation model uses assumptions about inflation, financial market returns, and the relationships among these variables. These assumptions were derived from analysis of historical data. Using Monte Carlo simulation the Envision tool simulates 1,000 different potential outcomes over a lifetime of investing varying historical risk, return, and correlation amongst the assets. Some of these scenarios will assume strong financial market returns, similar to the best periods of history for investors. Others will be similar to the worst periods in investing history. Most scenarios will fall somewhere in between.
