Q. How come I cannot use the portfolio optimiser or the monte carlo simulation in the software?
A. When using the AXA Elevate version of the software. As per AXA's requirements, if you make any changes to the market assumptions (under Preferences (the cog top-left) > Market Assumptions, the risk based portfolio selection tool, and the Monte Carlo simulation will be switched off in the software.
If you want to restore them, try going to the Preferences screen (again, the cog button top-left), click Restore Defaults (center-left) and then click Copy to Plan. This should restore AXA's default settings to the software and reactivate these two tools within the software
