As part of the “Investing over time” series, Article 8.2 presents Part 1 in a three-part series on the so called “older” investor. “Old” is in quotes because this series of articles applies to anyone who is within 5 to 10 years of retirement or already retired. So, this whole discussion is also aimed at folks scheming to retire young. Part 1 focuses on the bad luck of enduring a market crash early after retirement.
- What can a severe market crash do to your portfolio?
- How can you avoid serious damage to your portfolio?
- What are the range of approaches for avoiding this bad luck scenario?
Parts 2 and 3 are coming soon and will delve more into specific bad luck avoidance methods and how to apply them over time.
