Do you know how much money it will take to retire and how much money it will take to stay comfortably retired? As an investor, it can be tempting to get caught up in daily news headlines. Consider how news about the election and COVID-19 vaccines have moved the markets over the past months.
Investing is a process based on your goals, time horizon, and risk tolerance. It's also a process that may help you prepare for life's financial challenges allowing you to ignore short-term volatility and focus on your long-term goals.
Did you know that only 44 percent of workers have estimated how much income they would need in retirement? What's more, only 36 percent have calculated how much money they would need to cover healthcare expenses.1
Creating a financial strategy means thinking about the bigger picture, including various monthly income needs, handling unexpected expenses, and preparing for healthcare costs.

If your plan has been blown sideways, you deserve to hear an objective second opinion. I can help. Contact me today.
