Does Your Retirement Strategy Help Protect Your Investments?
Some strategies for retirement investments ask you to ride the market like a roller coaster. That level of risk-taking may work when you’re younger and focused only on growth, but we think that roller coaster rides can be dangerous to your financial health when you’re retired or close to retirement.
- What if you lose too much money and don’t have time to rebuild?
- What if you have to completely change your way of life?
- What if your money runs out?
Our retirement planning strategy is designed to help your money last as long as you need.
The Invest and Protect Strategy: Created for Retirees
We don’t want you to have to worry about running out of money in retirement. That’s why we employ our Invest and Protect Strategy. Designed for retirees and those nearing retirement, our proactive strategy is designed to help protect your retirement savings from a volatile market. Unlike some strategies for retirement that may emphasize growth alone, our approach focuses on helping you protect your principal and minimize losses.
Living on retirement income can be stressful if you have to worry about running out of money. We’d like to help you achieve financial peace of mind by working to help protect your retirement.
How can we help you find the right strategies for your retirement?
Our goal is to have your money last as long as you do.

How the Invest and Protect Strategy Works
Many people start their savings with a “buy and hold” saving strategy, where you “ride out” any bad markets. This often works for investors when they are young and have time to recover from big losses. But some retirees find that they can’t afford to wait years for the market to come back when they’re living on that money, or plan to do so soon.
Our strategy sounded an alert in October 2007, so we counseled our clients, email newsletter subscribers and listeners of the Money Matters with Ken Moraif radio show to get out of the market. We feel proud that our advice may have helped people protect their retirement investments during the crash of 2008.
