Introducing YCharts’ Tearsheet Builder: Customizable Reports for Advisors and Wholesalers

In today’s fast-paced financial landscape, YCharts’ tearsheets have become essential for advisors and wholesalers. Advisors use them to quickly prepare for client meetings, providing a concise snapshot of portfolios with key stats on performance, risk, and asset allocation. Similarly, wholesalers leverage these tearsheets to highlight their funds or ETFs when meeting with advisors, offering vital information at a glance. Despite their utility, users often feel limited by the standardized content of the tearsheets.

What Can You Do in YCharts’ Tearsheet Builder?

YCharts’ new Tearsheet Builder gives back control to advisors and wholesalers, allowing them to customize their reports to fit their specific needs. Found within the Financial Report Builder, this tool lets users select relevant modules and choose between portrait or landscape views, depending on the chosen format—single security or multi-comparison. Users can add up to 16 different modules to a single page, including returns data, asset allocation, user-defined data tables, scatter plot charts, exposure, top holdings, relevant disclosures, and even custom text fields for personalized commentary. Multi-comparison tearsheet reports provide wealth management professionals with the tools for effortless head-to-head analysis, allowing them to compare three to six different securities or portfolios with ease.

The Tearsheet Builder helps create better custom reports for advisors so that they can tailor their messaging when meeting with prospects to win new business and grow AUM. This new YCharts feature builds on the platform’s arsenal of financial advisory and portfolio management tools. Want to see it in action? Check out the short video below:

Plus, any saved tearsheet templates are accessible across all security or portfolio quote pages, ensuring seamless integration into your workflow, saving you time to re-allocate to other priorities. 

Create Your Own Tearsheet

With YCharts’ Tearsheet Builder, you can create a fully customized one-pager that tells the complete story of your specific investment strategy. As a wealth management professional, you can choose the metrics that best showcase a security or portfolio, helping you present a compelling narrative. Leverage over 4,000 available metrics and even add custom text fields to provide additional context behind a portfolio or fund strategy’s key value propositions. This tool is also ideal for wholesalers, enabling you to spotlight the key value propositions of a particular fund or ETF.

Once a template has been created, these tailored tearsheets can be generated and shared in a matter of seconds for upcoming client or prospect meetings, making them perfect companions to your presentations. 

Whether it’s for an annual client review or just a general check-in meeting, these customizable financial reports help ensure clients stay engaged and provide them with a clear, tangible takeaway that doesn’t overwhelm them. Additionally, these customized tearsheets are a great way to maintain consistent communication with your clients and provide them with periodic updates on their portfolio’s performance.

Align Your Conversations with Client Priorities

YCharts’ Tearsheet Builder enables you to tailor your conversations to what matters most to your clients. By honing in on specific metrics such as risk, performance, or allocation, to name a few, you can align your tearsheet report with the client or prospect’s investment priorities. For conservative clients, you can create a risk-focused tearsheet. For those open to higher risk, a performance-centric tearsheet might be the key to winning their business.

By focusing on what the client or prospect values most, you provide a more personalized experience, spurring engaging and relevant conversations.

Enhance Existing Reports with Single-Page Tearsheets

Consider this scenario: you’ve crafted a report comparing multiple proposed portfolio strategies against a benchmark, complete with four different fundamental charts. In anticipation of inquiries regarding each portfolio’s holdings, utilizing a single-page tearsheet to display these details can streamline the presentation and make it easier for clients to understand. This concise, multi-comparison format ensures clarity and ease of comparison, eliminating the clutter of multiple pages and enhancing comprehension.
