Whether retirement is a few years off or you’re already there, you’ll still want to keep growing your money to do the things you’ve always dreamed of.
Let’s look at four accumulation hurdles and how you might overcome them.
Avoiding market losses
As you near and enter retirement, how do you protect your savings from market downturns while still trying to grow your money? Ask your financial professional how annuities or an indexed universal life insurance policy can diversify your retirement strategy and give you growth opportunity. And how fixed annuities can shield you from market losses.
Minimizing the effects of down markets
Market conditions when you retire can have a huge effect on how long your savings will last. But with some adjustments to your retirement strategy, there’s a way to help minimize the damaging effects of down markets — making when you retire matter less. Talk to your financial professional about how fixed annuities and indexed universal life insurance may help.
Low interest rates
In 1984, a five-year CD yield was 12.06%.1,2 And today, fixed interest rates have plummeted. Your financial professional can show you fixed indexed annuity products with rates that may surprise you.
Planning for inflation
Right now, a fast food burger meal may cost you around $7.00 and that’s before you super-size anything. But in 40 years, that same meal may cost you $26.77 due to inflation.3 To keep up with increased living costs when you retire, your money will need to keep up too.
