(3:12) Managing Risk in Retirement
Listen to Mark Henry of Alloy Wealth Management discuss market risk, longevity risk, LTC risk, inflation risk. Adding more risk to the retirement portfolio just doesn’t make sense–balanced portfolios are key, along with holistic planning.
(4:18) Retirement Income is Critical
There is no magic number when it comes to saving for retirement. The most important thing is the income plan to cover living expenses, including Social Security filing strategies. At Alloy Wealth Management, we create an income plan up to age 95.
(5:05) Estate Planning
As a CEP (Certified Estate Planner), Mark Henry explains the differences between wills and trusts, how important it is to document everything, and how working with attorneys is mandatory. Estate planning includes ways to transfer maximum wealth to your heirs.
(3:08) Tax Planning
Surprise, you will not be free of income taxes in retirement, that’s why tax planning is so important. We help plan for you to be in the lowest tax bracket possible, looking at earned income, RMDs, qualified accounts and proper distribution timing. We help reduce taxes in retirement.
(2:56) Holistic Planning
Some people don’t have a plan, they have a whole lot of stuff. We create written comprehensive plans to follow, which address long-term care, inflation, taxation on accounts subject to RMDs, and much more. Nobody wants to run out of money, so let’s plan accordingly.
(4:07) Market Bubble
It seems everyone is worried about overvalued stocks. But stock markets will go down, it’s just a matter of time. You need a portfolio strategy that takes market volatility into account, and protects principal and income regardless—we often consider FIAs as an option. Independent advice is important.
(4:00) Fear of Running Out of Money
Outliving savings is a big concern among retirees, feared more than death. Most people want to leave money to their kids, but even more important, they don’t want to be a burden to children. A customized income plan is critical to feeling able to do the things you would like to do without worry.
