Optimize Financial Decision-Making

Insurance companies still managing their businesses in silos are standing in a field of uncertainty when it comes to truly understanding their business risks. DFA removes the uncertainty by providing insurance companies with ADVISE, the only comprehensive financial simulation engine capable of modeling an entire company. With ADVISE, companies can now optimize financial decision-making across all interrelated aspects of their business.

Gain a Competitive Advantage

Designed for Your Business

ADVISE delivers an entire suite of modular solutions that are tailored to the specific needs of insurance firms. Explore a company-wide ERM solution with ADVISE - Enterprise or start with one or more focused “quick win” applications and easily add more applications to move to a company-wide ERM environment over time. Select your business to learn about individual applications tailored to your business.

ADVISE – Benefits for Business

By providing companies with enterprise-wide financial modeling, DFA’s ADVISE software enables companies to have an aggregated view of all aspects of their business.

Benefit from the Best of Both Worlds

ADVISE combines the power of complete business logic in liabilities, investments, accounting and economic scenarios for comprehensive, enterprise-wide modeling with the flexibility of a toolkit or spreadsheet. Users can begin parameterizing and running models immediately - no need to spend time building and maintaining code - and built-in toolkit functionality provides flexibility to tailor the system, without the need for custom programming.
