Wealth Management - Overview
Not that long ago, investors could put money in a savings account, buy some government bonds and look forward to the tranquility of their retirement years. Following World War II, economic prosperity brought stability to the lives of many, making the possibility of living the American dream a reality for millions. More recently though, the increasing complexity of economic forces and the interdependence of global markets have combined to significantly alter the investment landscape.
Investors attempting to establish sufficient resources to fund their retirement, protect their principal, generate durable income, overcome the effects of inflation, and avoid running out of money must consider how they plan to overcome the effects of a complex investment landscape. And as if that isn’t enough, planning for the ill effects of adverse life events is essential as well.
