  • Healthcare Risk

    Medical costs have been rising at a rate that outpaces the normal inflation rate. These types of expenses can have a large impact on the amount of money you need to save for retirement and should be factored into your retirement income strategies.

  • Inflation Risk

    Keeping pace with inflation is important even in your retirement years to make sure you can maintain the same standard of living throughout your golden years. Even with a 3% annual inflation rate, your purchasing power will be reduced by over 25% in just ten years of your retirement.

  • Volatility Risk

    Investment returns can be unpredictable, which can create an obstacle to generating a consistent and reliable retirement income. In addition to market risk in the equity markets, retirees need to also factor in interest rate risk and how it impacts bond holdings in a portfolio. Another component of volatility is “sequence of returns risk” since declines in the market combined with withdrawals can create more downward pressure on your nest egg.

  • Longevity Risk

    People are living longer and many will need retirement income to last 25, 30 or even 40 years, especially if they are in good health and have a family history of longevity. If your retirement income plan isn’t designed to provide income for your entire lifetime, you could be at risk of outliving your assets.
