Estimating the Cost of Retirement
Retirement is the most expensive “purchase” faced by most individuals.
In order to properly forecast the value of assets during retirement, it is important to consider several other variables when estimating a person’s total retirement liability, such as their optimal replacement rate, their forecasted retirement period, and what it truly means to fail (or succeed).
Retirement professionals need to have a framework for understanding and projecting retirement costs for each client, and a process for better estimating the true cost of retirement.
In "Estimating the True Cost of Retirement" by David Blanchett, you will:
- Gain a better understanding of the key variables required to estimate the cost of retirement;
- Learn of a more effective approach for calculating an income replacement rate;
- Learn of a better spending model to help you understand how expenses tend to change throughout retirement and the implications of these changes on the retirement need;
- Explore how efficient accumulation portfolios are not the same as efficient retirement portfolios.
