One of the biggest life transitions that we help clients with on a regular basis is retirement. There are a myriad of issues we see clients face when making this transition but one challenge that causes a lot of internal stress is the switch from saving to spending. We often have clients tell us they just want to live off the income of the portfolio rather than spending down their savings. Unfortunately there are many issues with this plan. We believe in a "total return" approach to managing your portfolio in retirement and Chris explains why.
The Golden Years
Whether you like it or not you are getting older. We all are. At some point we need to confront the reality that as we get older we face new and distinct challenges related to our health.
