Welcome back to financial wise with C said Blackburn. And Elizabeth James. Welcome back to financial wise we are talking about how our favorite thing to do is the retirement class that we teach it concordia university. It's retirement elevated get it concordia Tuesday. February 21 and 28. Thursdays February 23 in March 2 from 630 deny and you heard that on the break but. This is about EU. Owning retirement I want you to be able to have all the information that you need to make good decisions you can protect your family. In a retirement. You know on the last segment I was talking about Betty he came in in you know Benny was very afraid. A turning everything over to any professional and I mean my god she worked her whole life working. And very respected. CPA in her field and had done very very well. And when she got her retirement even though she knew a lot about business taxation she wasn't. Really all up to snuff on how to retiring get that going so she took the course. So that she would know the language. She would understand the investment choices she understood which account when she knew how to appeal in comes the risk of sequence of returns ups or downs in the market how to appeal all that. And my goodness what about long term care when she got sick leave for partner got sick so. At the end of that story was that he came in and was able to really have the confidence. To make an income planned and now guess what she's doing she's traveling all over the place I've barely overseer. The British isn't just Inge. Oh I retire. Which I know is your ultimate goal to go and announced there that's enjoy a retirement right. Add that brings us to the third module which is investment planning so far we've talked about. Section one life planning defining your ideal retirement. Section two income planning determining how much money you actually need. And then from there we can go into investment planning access section three is investment planning. And really your our. Your strategy during your working years maybe just growth at all costs to buy and Paul and accumulating these mutual funds all over the place. Yet that might have worked for you. But really you half to you taken to a cannot and more appropriate strategy when you move into the distribution phase. Because you are you have a finite. Amount of assets. There's no more contributions. No more working and earning contributing to it so. You really have to have a strategy that balances. Protecting what you have and generating be appropriate. Return that you need to support. Your lifestyle. I'm gonna tell story for it for this example to access I have a a gap a graduate from retirement Allen made it here is now a client of ours. And again very respected in his field very educated. Very Smart man. And had a lot of moving pieces in his. I can't I don't know I don't caught a portfolio I cut a collection of I can't fix it okay candidates you know just. And a collection of account sound that really share our real clear of the purpose or strategy for Rondo and you know if you ask and what is a sport. I was making money he's just earnings. Well we really had to get it focused into a plan what do we need this to do for you and really. What investments are perfect depending on your risk. I this was also it and a and that individual always. Everything figured out spreadsheet for everything. But really not understanding. Why he had what he had a with a purpose why so. After graduating from the class coming onboard to work with us. He now understands exactly. What his which account is supposed to do what for him. The appropriate level of risk and most importantly for retiree. You or do you withdraw strategy you'll like in which it out when. Because when you are in your distribution days or in retirement. You've got other risks that you don't have when you're working. And these are some real killers and and retirement for a portfolio. The sequence of returns risk and negative compound things. Which account when for tax efficiency. I said these are all these are all things that are very important need to have an understanding of before entering retirement. Yet yet if it cost Sudeikis were actually were scholarship thing again. Had retirement elevated concordia. February. 21 and 28 that's a Tuesday option. Or Thursdays. February 23 and march 2 so college today is we can scholarship view and look slightly. 22159. 512. 2159030. Now you know all along those lines one of the things that we give everybody that goes through the course. Is a wonderful sheet of paper. That our questions to ask. Your perspective. Retirement planner. And this this is should be making your stockbroker. Chic in their boots. Because. Stockbrokers love it that you don't know exactly what the fees are they love it that you don't know how they're paid. They love it they date. You don't really know the underlying investment choices in what you half or how about they love it that all they have to do is have a investment that is pseudo ball. Not necessarily in your best interests out I challenge you. Ask your stockbroker. About a certain investment and its suitability. Vs in your best interest exactly. And if you've noticed recently in the news there's been a lot of a rowboat advisor activity. Because of this fiduciary standard being put in place it is cryptic call. I repeat critical for you to have a fiduciary. That is hand delaying. Your accounts and retirement because they're there required by law. To act in your best interest in the way you check that frankly. How the statements set up. Do you see exactly what the investments are you know exactly what the cost. Is for the investments. Do you know how the planned. What works and thirty years I'm not talking not just a couple years but for thirty years of life. Because that's what a good income plan is all about.
