Episode 34: The 7 Risks You’ll face in Retirement – Part 3 (Sequence of Return & Investor Behavioral Risk)
In this episode, Mike and Matt continue with Part 3 of their 4 part series that discusses managing the seven risks to retirement income. This episode covers the concept of “Sequence of Returns” risk and “Investor Behavioral” risk. Matt tells the story of how 2 separate families that both have $500,000 in their retirement accounts execute the same investment strategies, but run-out-of-money at two very different times because of what the Market was doing at the time they decided actually start drawing against their retirement accounts . The guys make sure that you know that there’s no way to absolutely remove the risk of Sequence of Returns, but there are SMART ways to have various income options during retirement so that you maximize your control of this risk. Additionally, Mike shows that the best way to combat behavioral risk in retirement is by not deviating from your fundamental strategy in retirement, and breathe. As usual, Mike reminds listeners that your Real Estate is a tool, if used properly, that will help you “stay the course” as you properly leverage this asset when the timing is right during retirement.
