The Evolution of the Retirement Landscape

So I recently penned an article entitled: “Executive Compensation: A Guide to Building Wealth” (send me an email to get the article) and I wanted to use a podcast segment to take a high-level view at the purpose behind that article, and talk about the evolving retirement landscape that I’ve witnessed in my years of practice.

Questions/Issues We’ll Address on this Episode:

So I recently penned an article entitled:  “Executive Compensation:  A Guide to Building Wealth” (send me an email to get the article) and I wanted to use a podcast segment to take a high-level view at the purpose behind that article, and talk about the evolving retirement landscape that I’ve witnessed in my years of practice.  Per the Survey of Consumer Finances conducted by the Federal Reserve Board, the number one reason for individuals to save and invest is to fund their retirement.  With the evolution of the retirement landscape over the past three decades, the creation of defined contribution plans like the 401(k) has shifted the responsibility to individual investors to provide income for their retirement years.  Prior to that, defined benefit pension plans put the responsibility on corporations to provide retirement benefits. This was a fairly sophisticated process involving actuaries and large investment firms which had the responsibility to provide investment returns that provided benefits to thousands of workers.  Due to a multitude of factors including reduced corporate profit margins, increased fixed costs from globalization and subpar returns from lower interest rates, this giant responsibility has been handed off to individual investors living busy and complex lives. The logical question is: “How equipped is today’s business executive to deal with this new responsibility”? And further, “Can a successful retirement be achieved without proper financial advice?”

Questions/Issues We’ll Address on this Episode:
In today’s episode and maybe for the next couple weeks, I want to highlight some key takeaways from a few case studies that I’ve experienced in my years of practice around the subject of “retirement solutions”.  In addition to starting my own practice last year, I have had the benefit of serving about 600 families with another firm in the 6 years prior.  From that experience, I helped form several “retirement solutions” with several different financial planning strategies and techniques.  This week, I want to address a few key points that relate to success in determining a “retirement solution”.   This is such an important topic to address, so take the time to listen to see where you fit in.  I think everyone is concerned (or will be) about the amount of money they require to fully retire.  So I wanted to address that issue today.

Interesting Fact:  10,000 baby boomers will retire each day for the next 13 years and they will play a big role in wealth transfer over the next several years!
