How to plan to retire in a bear market
Given the current state of the economy, with high inflation, market volatility, and overall financial stress, many retirees are reconsidering their retirement out of fear that they may outlive their wealth. In this episode of Everyday Wealth™, Jean and Soledad are joined by Edelman Financial Engines wealth planner Isabel Barrow to discuss how retirement is changing and what considerations to make when retiring in a bear market, including partial retirement, withdrawal strategies, and more.
This show is pre-recorded, and any callers are prescreened.
Ms. Chatzky and Ms. O’Brien receive cash compensation for acting as hosts of the Everyday Wealth radio show and podcast and for related activities and therefore have an incentive to endorse Edelman Financial Engines and its planners. That compensation is a fixed sum paid on an annual basis; and reimbursement for certain expenses. The amount paid each year does not vary, is not based on show content or any results-dependent factors (e.g., popularity of the show).
Investing strategies, such as asset allocation, diversification, or rebalancing do not assure or guarantee better performance and cannot eliminate the risk of investment losses. There are no guarantees that a portfolio employing these or any other strategy will outperform a portfolio that does not engage in such strategies. Funds and ETFs are subject to risk, including loss of principal. All investments have inherent risks. There can be no assurance that the investment strategy proposed will obtain its goal. Past performance does not guarantee future results.
Dollar Cost Averaging does not assure a profit or protect against a loss in a declining market. For the strategy to be effective, you must continue to purchase shares in both up and down markets. As such, an investor needs to consider his/her financial ability to continuously invest through periods of low-price levels.
