Did you know…
Even with the best of intentions, setbacks like a market crash, healthcare costs, a job loss, divorce, illness, or long-term care, can set your retirement savings back, which is why financial professionals advise clients to maximize retirement investments when they can. However, only 1/3 of Americans who have access to a 401(k) plan contribute to it.
Even more startling, among the Baby Boomers who are gearing up to retire next, they have less than half of the savings estimated that they will need in retirement.
One would think this means their asset allocations might be well diversified to make up for this gap, however, according to QS Investors, Baby Boomers’ investments are generally managed conservatively, with 30% in cash, 24% in equities, and 22% in fixed income.
What are we thinking?
The proverb, “the road to hell is paved with good intentions” rings true here. Many Boomers preparing for retirement have saved as much as they could with the information and resources they had, but many still could face financial constraints. We believe we can help. Our Current Income Portfolio is an attractive solution for investors looking for conservative allocations and additional yields in this low-interest rate environment and can provide a sustainable and substantial income stream during your clients’ retirement.
