Preparing Your Finances for the Future

In 2020, the average life expectancy in the United States was 77.3 years. But if you retire at 65, that doesn’t mean you only need to save enough money to last 12.3 years — one in three 65-year-olds live to age 90, and two-thirds live to age 80.1 Without the right preparations in place, you could find yourself face-to-face with every retiree’s greatest fear: running out of money.

On Tuesday, October 5 at 12:00 PM ET, we are holding a webinar to discuss how you can prepare your finances for the future. XML’s Senior Wealth Advisor and Partner, Eric Wightman, will outline the key considerations that should play a role in your retirement planning strategy. Specifically, Eric will discuss:

  • How the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the way we think about retirement
  • Navigating investment risk in retirement
  • How to identify the right investment strategies for your risk tolerance and time horizon
  • Why it is important to take a strategic approach to withdrawals from your retirement accounts
