A Holy Grail of Retirement:
How to increase income and growth while improving liquidity
Overall Rating: 4.1 / 5
Understanding what retirees want and what keeps them up at night are major elements for financial professionals to resolve and solve for their pre-and-post retiree clients.
It is important to build portfolios that create a base of income they cannot destroy, one they cannot outlive, and when done correctly, protect principal that cannot be lost if dying to soon. Investing solutions should focus on income flow, discretionary liquidity, growth opportunities and legacy goals.
During this session, we will address many myths and biases that surround these questions and show you how building a retirement income floor that incorporates insurance guarantees can help clients meet their emotional and financial needs for a lifetime.
Gain insight into how an income floor strategy can use fewer assets for income and free up more assets for growth, liquidity, and legacy.
