Today, retirement planning is much more complex than it was 30 years ago. People retiring 30 years ago expected to do so at age 65 and live, on average, only 7-10 years in retirement. Today, 67% of people are retiring before the age of 65 and 35% before the age of 60; and they are living longer. That means you could be living in retirement for 30 to 40 years.

Given market volatility and the low returns in the markets since 2000, comprehensive planning is much more important, and much more difficult, than at any time in the past.

Using Monte Carole Simulations we can “simulate” a wide range of possible future market conditions, taxes, inflation, health care costs, and even social security. This allows us to stress test your portfolio in order to optimize your comprehensive plan to achieve the best results for you. Doing so will help you to deal with these variables while you still have the financial flexibility and time to do so.
We factor in many things that most advisors do not, like inflation, the ‘Sequence of Returns’ risk, drawdowns, and Bear Market risk. But most importantly, we make sure that the plan does not fail when the primary income earner, and often the financial decision maker, dies either while still working or even years into retirement.
Too many households are left in financial disarray when the primary income earner passes … And those that aren’t left in financial disarray, all of a sudden find someone inexperienced at managing money thrust into the role of managing the family’s wealth, often for the first time in their lives. This can be a particularly daunting and frightening task if that someone is an elderly spouse.
