Retirement is coming, ready or not
Retirement should be a greatly anticipated milestone, not a cause for concern. Our goal is to help you not only prepare for retirement but to have a realistic picture of what to expect.
You’ve put in the work and diligently saved for retirement. Now the question you may be asking is, “Have I saved enough?”
The better question might be, “What will my retirement income be? And will there be enough to last the rest of my life?"
We’ll answer these important questions and address the risks that can derail your retirement plan.
TIMING RISK: Beginning your retirement during a down market
INFLATION RISK: Your retirement income buys less every year
LONGEVITY RISK: You outlive your retirement income
Our time-segmented investment strategy
This well-designed investment strategy is designed to structure income throughout the phases of your retirement and to address the risks.
It divides your retirement into segments (or buckets), each with a different investment objective and time horizon. The length of these segments varies and is customized to your cash flow needs.
Now let’s look at the different buckets and how they work.
The Now Bucket
The goal of this first segment is to produce income for your near-term living expenses through the use of investments with little or no stock market risk, such as money market funds, certificates of deposit, immediate annuities, or other relatively conservative investments.
It’s designed to give you the money you need for the first year or two of retirement, available whenever you need it, for planned expenses and unplanned emergencies.
The Soon Bucket
This bucket is set up to provide income for the next five to 10 years. It’s invested to provide more growth than the Now bucket while maintaining little to no exposure to stock market risk.
The Later Bucket
For the later phase of your retirement, this bucket has a long-term growth objective designed to offset the effects of inflation, support your charitable interests and provide a legacy for your spouse and children when the time comes.
Moving money between buckets
As time goes by, we’ll rebalance your buckets to replenish your Now and Soon buckets so you always have conservative funds available for your living expenses. Since it's not always a good time in the market to sell something, we carefully choose when we move money from one bucket to another.
Having several years of living expenses in the Now and Soon buckets helps us be more strategic about when to rebalance.
All investments are subject to risk, including loss. The process of rebalancing may result in tax consequences. Annuities are subject to the claims paying ability of the issuing insurance company. Certificates of deposit offer FDIC insurance and a fixed rate of return whereas both principal and yield of investment securities will fluctuate with changes in market conditions. Although money markets strive to maintain a stable net asset value, the funds are not federally insured and there is no guarantee that a stable net asset value will be maintained.
Feel better about your future
You can never be too prepared for retirement. We’re here to make sure you are.
Having a well-designed plan and investment strategy can help you feel more confident that you're financially prepared for this next phase of your life.
