Featured Educational Article

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.
