Retirement Planning is crucial to the making sure you don't run out of money in retirement while maximizing your retirement lifestyle. Our portfolio strategy relies on dividend income so that you can live on passive income rather than having to liquidate portfolio holdings. This is in contrast to a fixed income portfolio (also known as a bond portfolio) that usually does not appreciate in value and faces additional, unique risks that bonds face. These additional risks include but are not limited to default risk, liquidity risk, prepayment risk, interest rate risk, credit risk, reinvestment risk, interest rate risk, exchange rate risk, volatility risk, call risk, etc. While many of those risks are out of our control, we can eliminate or mitigate similar risks by utilizing our dividend portfolio strategy which allows for appreciation of your portfolio as well as steady income.
We make sure that once you retire and the paychecks stop, you can live in confidence and know that you're financially sound. We can guide you through retirement and navigate many things such as:
Social Security- when to start taking benefits and how it will affect your retirement
Estate Planning- how to transfer your wealth and leave your legacy
Pensions- help you determine whether to take the monthly payments or the lump sum
Taxes- what is the most efficient way to derive income when you have tax-deferred, tax-free, and taxable accounts, how to lower your tax liability
Healthcare- often times forgotten in retirement plans, but how do we account for additional healthcare costs as you age
Whatever your situation is, at Cullen Cioffi, we are here to help. We strive to have an intimate client-advisor relationship so that we can understand your wants, your needs, and your expectations and then surpass them. You only have one retirement, so let us help you get the most out of it.
