YOUR VISION, OUR INSIGHTS

Income Protection | Retirement | Comprehensive Financial Planning




THE DILEMMA


Why are we saving? 

Life is funny. For the first half of our life we're told we need to turn our income into assets. But in the second half, all of sudden, we're told we need to turn those assets back into income. But we don't know when to start, if we have enough, and how long the second half will last. When we consider that the end goal of saving for retirement is income creation, the dilemma of how we should position our assets today becomes more clear. 




Sequence of Returns 

In retirement, market volatility puts us in the position to decide how much of our nest egg we are allowed to spend before we know what we're going to earn. It's unclear how much we can spend today and how much we should reserve for years with down markets.

How Long We'll Need Income 

None of us know when we're leaving this world. This obvious truth has an enormous impact on how we can spend our assets in retirement. It's unclear how much of our assets we can spend today and how much we should reserve for the hopefully many years to come.

WHY SEEK GUIDANCE?

There appears to have been a major shift in responsibility. Defined Benefit plans (Pensions) have largely been replaced by Defined Contribution Plans (401ks). Retirement planning has fundamentally changed. The burden is now on individuals, not employers, to both accumulate enough savings and develop a distribution strategy. A financial advisor can be your guide by helping you develop a financial strategy that effectively uses all of the tools available to potentially improve your retirement outcomes.
