Monte Carlo Performance Enhancement

The Monte Carlo Simulation is one of the hardest working components of eMoney. It isn’t easy running a thousand simulations on thousands of variables with independent growth rates for hundreds of thousands of clients every day. And as you know one small change to a single variable can have a profound effect on the entire simulation.

As part of our plan to improve system performance, we’re adding a new caching efficiency to the Monte Carlo simulation to save you time when using the Monte Carlo Simulation in the Goal Planner and Decision Center.

Here’s how it works: 

  1. Once a Monte Carlo simulation is performed, a new system of smart checks monitor the facts relevant to your client’s Monte Carlo simulation.
  2. If another Monte Carlo run is requested within a specified timeframe, we validate the existing simulation data and only initiate a new run when a relevant fact has been changed.

This new caching feature allows for quicker response times when using the eMoney Goal Planner, Decision Center, and Monte Carlo suite of reports by eliminating up to 30% of unnecessary Monte Carlo runs.

Keep an eye out for more updates as we continue to improve the Monte Carlo experience.
