Building a retirement income portfolio can be much different than a growth portfolio. In fact, so much different, they would certainly not be mistaken for each other. In this October 28, 2015 (10:00AM) workshop we will focus on:
RETIREMENT ALLOCATIONS and how to properly approach planning for retirement income.
A retirement income portfolio is not necessarily a “more conservative” stock and bond portfolio. It’s not just about withdrawal rates vs growth rates. It’s not just about picking “conservative” stocks.
It might focus on targeting bond maturities to each year in retirement. It might focus on
immediate annuities to provide a steady income with excess money invested in something riskier. It should involve building a proper FLOOR of stable income, before exposing your money to excessive risk by shooting for too much UPSIDE gain. It should pay heed to having adequate RESERVES – an emergency fund. And it should consider planning for LONGEVITY – if you happen to live past age 85 as more and more retirees are.
In this workshop, we will focus on RETIREMENT ALLOCATIONS
When most people think of “allocating investments,” they think “stocks, bonds, real estate, commodities, preferred stock etc.” In this workshop we will get you to think about: Reserves, Floor, Upside, and Longevity.
In discussing these concepts we will also answer questions like:
- how we would construct a retirement portfolio using the Retirement Allocations concepts?
- Whar are the risks and rewards of the various strategies?
- How do we factor in inflation in planning?
- Are there strategies to crash proof a retirement portfolio?
- Can you construct a plan to spend it all and still leave an inheritance?
- Should recent stock market volatility cause us to change our investments?
- If I prefer annuities in retirement, what are the biggest gotchas to look out for?
- And more including your questions.
