Most of us have read that females, on average, live longer than males. This week’s article takes this information and applies it to retirement planning. Discussing how women “need to accumulate more wealth to finance their retirement needs”, the author points out that recent studies have drawn into question the logic of taking increased risk to obtain higher returns necessary to produce that greater wealth. He goes on to discuss the role that fixed annuities can play in retirement planning. Call us if you would like to explore this topic more. We are always here to help.
