Harold Evensky’s 5 Steps to Retirement Success
Date: Tuesday, August 27, 2013
Time: 2pm ET | 11am PT
Like many, Harold Evensky believes real returns will be relatively low and correlations and volatility high in the near-future.
“As a consequence, I believe practitioners need to seriously reconsider their implementation strategies to manage taxes and transaction costs,” says the professor of personal financial planning at Texas Tech University and president of high-profile planning firm Evensky & Katz.
Great—but how, specifically, is it done?
Evensky has no shortage of ideas. The keynote speaker at this year’s Think Retirement Income Conference in Boston on Oct. 10 -11 will sound off on the following topics:
- Squaring of the Curve – Despite conventional wisdom, as investors get older they don’t necessarily spend less.
- Sustainable withdrawal - 4% “solution” equals a nonsensical income portfolio.
- MPT isn’t dead!
- Managing volatility and withdrawal in a low return environment
- Will the real “risk tolerance” please stand up.
True to form, Evensky says “we’ll get through as many as possible.” Join Investment Advisor for this live, interactive webcast - don’t miss out.
