I have talked to many clients. I have read and listened to many economists and Chief Investment Officers who are nervous about investing hard earned savings when markets and indexes are making new highs.
Many people feel the market is “due for a correction”; they worry about a “bubble bursting like 2008”; they look at the political environment and feel confused by what is happening in Washington DC.
Looking at retirement planning is different from investing other assets.
Many people are limited by 2 factors,
(A) the Need for retirement income, and
(B) a limited time horizon.
They need to draw money from their accounts in order to live in the near term.
For savers and retirees, a solution to both of these issues are annuities that provide guaranteed retirement income. These types of annuities create a lifetime guaranteed income stream while giving the investor the ability to stay invested in the market. If the market declines, they will continue to get their stream of income.
By contrast, someone invested in the market without such guarantees, drawing income and experiencing a down draft in the market they may find themselves running out of money during retirement.
This fear, running out of money during retirement, is people’s number one fear according to several recent studies.
If you feel uncomfortable investing in the market at these levels, please reach out to me to discuss options that can help you protect your lifestyle regardless of what happens in the markets.
