IS THIS BOOK FOR YOU?
If you’re already retired, or if you’re preparing to retire within the next few years, The All-Weather Retirement Portfolio is for you. If you’d like to begin enjoying that extra income stream a few years before your retirement, The All-Weather Retirement Portfolio will help you do that, too.
IF YOU’RE ALREADY RETIRED
If you’re already retired, you might feel like investing is one huge gamble. You may feel you should protect your principle no matter what, especially since you don’t really know how many years you’ll need the income it provides. Consequently, you might feel safest investing primarily in certificates of deposits, money markets, or government bonds. These types of investments do offer a guarantee of principal (if you hold on to them until they mature). Unfortunately, the dollars you invest in them don’t hold their purchasing power. And if you live as long as we all hope you’ll live, this is a formula for disaster. In the pages that follow The All-Weather Retirement Portfolio will show you exactly how these investments have fared in the past, when the financial environment was excellent for vehicles like this—and I’ll compare their performance to that of other types of investments available to you. The All-Weather Retirement Portfolio will also explore how much you can take out each year if you diversify your investments, and still have a worry-free income for life.
IF YOU EXPECT TO RETIRE WITHIN THE NEXT FIVE YEARS
If you expect to retire within the next five years or so, you have a lot of planning to do. I’m sure you’ve been trying to get a sense of how much income you’ll be able to draw from your investments. You’re excited about the prospect of enjoying your retirement, and don’t want to feel guilty about spending money that needs to last for the rest of your life. You’re also probably aware that your investment strategy will change once you stop putting money into your retirement fund and start taking money out…but you’ve struggled to find solid information about what that new strategy should look like. You want to know you’ll be able to get a reasonable rate of return without taking unnecessary risks—especially now that you no longer have time to recoup any losses. How do you strike the right balance between being prudent and enjoying yourself? Do you have enough money to retire when you planned to? If not, when can you retire without worrying about the future? The All-Weather Retirement Portfolio book answers all those questions, with hard data and sound research to give you confidence that the investment strategy it offers will keep you safe in the worst financial storm you’re likely to see in your lifetime. The All-Weather Retirement Portfolio also explains exactly how much money you can take out, and still feel confident you’ll have a worry-free income for as long as you need it.
IF YOU’RE 60 YEARS OF AGE OR OLDER AND STILL WORKING
If you’re 60 years of age or older and still working, but you’d like to tap into your retirement fund now without jeopardizing your ability to retire at some point in the not-too-distant future, The All-Weather Retirement Portfolio outlines an investment strategy that will protect your fund while you take money out, help you make a sound decision about how much you can take, and still have an income to last a lifetime.
