Dr. Greenwald asserts that a comfortable financial retirement requires the implementation of lifetime income strategies. His recommendations focus on two strategies:
- utilizing immediate annuities to provide a guaranteed, lifetime income stream and
- allocating a greater percentage of an investment portfolio to equities.
These strategies enable retirees to capture the inherent growth potential and inflation protection offered by equities and the stability of guaranteed income offered by immediate annuities.
Greenwald’s report includes illustrations of how the strategy benefits retirees in addition to information about immediate annuities.
