Architas is offering the option to map its funds to the FinaMetrica risk-profiling scale, to help advisers match their clients with the group's funds.
Advisers who use the FinaMetrica risk-profiling tool for their clients will now be able to match it to a fund in the Architas range, which will use the same scale.
All funds offered by the Axa subsidiary will be mapped, including the MA Active, MA Passive and recently launched MA Blended ranges.
Cedric Bucher, head of business development at Architas, said: "Whilst the Architas funds are risk managed following the eValueFE risk profiling tool, we understand that advisers have implemented a diverse range of risk profilers.
"This new service fits with our overall strategy; to ensure that we deliver RDR ready solutions and facilitate a full investment process."
Paul Resnik, co-founder of FinaMetrica, said " We have argued for a long time that the industry needs to adopt a common standard in relation to three risk definitions before confidence in long term investing will return: the words that we use, the descriptors that we use and method we use to assess risk tolerance.
"Investor's expectations can be better managed once there is a consensus. This is a very good step along the way to that goal."
