Saving Enough for Retirement

Posted In: Financial Planning Retirement

Businessman Retirement Qualification Occupation ConceptIt’s a common question: How much money am I going to need for my retirement? Every year, the estimated length of time money will need to last for retirement expands. Today, that estimate is 30-35 years; tomorrow, who knows?

 

Key considerations include: when you plan to retire and what your retirement will look like. These and other questions are up to each investor, and they are things that we all need to consider.

 

One thing that we do know is that for those saving for, entering, or well within retirement, there are two important issues to consider: Asset Allocation and Asset Location.

 

Asset Allocation is the tactical investing of one’s holdings relative to tolerance for risk, the investment timeline, and the opportunities that arise in the markets.

 

Asset Location, however, considers Tax and Health Volatility Management. This is where real dollars are lost and made, as we face our retirement years. Everyone’s tax situation is unique, and leaving oneself exposed to the vagaries of tax rates well into the future can be disastrous to the long-term viability of one’s savings and investments. Tax diversification is essential, and the team at AALLC is made up of experts that can quickly understand and help you choose locations for your assets to give you the best chance to avoid the ravages of an uncertain tax environment.
