The Impact of Dynamic Approaches on Optimal Retirement Income Strategies

Researchers often assumes that retirees make decisions only at or just before retirement. But retirees and their financial advisors can dynamically adjust strategies over time. Doing so improves the likelihood of financial success in retirement.

This presentation will explore:

  • Why dynamic models result in higher retirement spending rates
  • Which withdrawal approaches work best
  • Why annuities are less important in a dynamic framework
  • How to make optimal portfolio allocations

David will answer attendees’ questions during the session and will be available to continue the discussion on APViewpoint.

A New Approach to Sustainable Spending in Retirement

The probability-based school of thought on retirement income investing, with its emphasis on total-portfolio return, has dominated financial planning since the 1990s. But is it still relevant today? In this session, Wade will examine the core methodology and assumptions behind this approach and discuss how time-segmentation strategies offer a more holistic alternative. Advisors will learn:

  • Why longstanding assumptions about safe withdrawal rates and the “4% rule” may no longer be relevant;
  • How time segmentation allows clients to use varied investment strategies and vehicles to generate needed income during different phases of their retirement;
  • How time segmentation helps advisors deliver more customized, needs-based retirement-income planning solutions for their clients.

Wade will answer attendees’ questions during the session and will be available to continue the discussion on APViewpoint.
