Featured Educational Article

Here’s a sample of the quality education we provide to individual investors. We hope you find it useful. It touches on one aspect of the broad subjects we cover for anyone who has an interest in handling their own investments.

The Importance of Diversification in Retirement Portfolios

by Craig L. Israelsen, Ph.D.

Article Highlights
 
* Six portfolios, with allocations ranging from all-cash to a mixture of stocks, bonds and cash, were analyzed using different withdrawal rates.
* A retiree holding an all-cash or an all-bond portfolio had the highest likelihood of running out of money before passing.
* Combining large-cap stocks, small-cap stocks, bonds and cash both greatly increased the odds of not outliving one’s savings and allowed for higher withdrawal rates.
