Herrand Associates Wealth Management Singapore, Tokyo Japan: How to Restructure Your Investments for Retirement

Recommended Posts



Making the money last when it's time to shift from saving to spending


You’ve earned and saved money and now you’re headed into retirement. What could go wrong? Along with a new schedule and opportunities come new questions and challenges, particularly around finances. The most pressing ones are often: “Do I have enough savings to last my lifetime?” and “How do I turn my nest egg into a paycheck that I can count on throughout retirement?”


One of the biggest changes in retirement is going from receiving a consistent paycheck to needing to generate your own cash flow to cover expenses. This shift requires a new investment strategy and mindset.


The 3 Phases of Retirement


To start, you’ll want to think of retirement as a series of three unique stages:


The “Go Go” Years In the first years of retirement, you’ll likely be focused on the fun things in life, such as travel or enjoying activities with friends and family. The result can be a spike in lifestyle expenses. During this period, your investment strategy should account for a faster withdrawal rate from your portfolio and more money going out the door.


The “Slow Go” Years Throughout these years, it’s likely you’ll settle into a routine. Your desire to be as active may taper off, and with it, life expenses can tend to go down.


The “No Go” Years More Americans are living into their 90s or beyond. While this is a testament to our medical advancements, increased longevity is often accompanied by physical limitations. At this point in life, you may scale back your activity even more and find that your remaining expenses are focused on daily living and possibly health care-related.


5 Ways to Restructure Your Portfolio for Retirement


Throughout the different phases of retirement, you’ll need to develop strategies around covering your day-to-day expenses as well as the best ways to tap into your assets. Both strategies should meet your goals and reflect your views on risk. Regardless of your circumstances, be sure to address five key areas when mapping out your retirement income plan:


1. Protect against sequence risk If the stock market takes a tumble and you’re not appropriately diversified, you could be forced to pull money out of investments that have declined precipitously. The returns during the first few years of retirement can have an especially significant impact on your long-term wealth picture — this is known as “sequence risk.”


So consider keeping some of your money in liquid investments such as cash or other relatively safe, short-term vehicles to cover expenses for the first two or three years of retirement.


2. Match your assets to your expenses  Identify which of your expenses are required to meet your basic needs of living, (such as food, shelter, utilities and health care) and which are discretionary (like travel and hobbies). Then, target sources of guaranteed or stable income to meet your essential expenses. This can include Social Security, a pension if you’ll get one and perhaps an annuity with guaranteed payments.


You can use investments that may vary in value to meet your discretionary expenses.


3. Remember that taxes are an ongoing expense   As you create your own paycheck in retirement from your savings; remember that you may still have a tax liability. Unlike your working years, taxes may not be automatically withheld from your sources of cash flow. Even the majority of Social Security recipients are subject to tax on the benefits they receive.


Depending on how effectively you manage your income level, you may qualify for a zero percent long-term capital gains tax rate when liquidating certain investments in a taxable account.


Working with a financial professional before, and throughout, retirement can help you calculate how much you may owe in taxes or which tax breaks you may be eligible to receive.


4. Pay attention to required distribution rules for your retirement accounts If you have money in traditional Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) or workplace retirement plans, remember to comply with the government’s required minimum distribution (RMD) rules.


After age 70 1/2, you must take withdrawals from these accounts annually — even if you don’t need the money — based on a schedule provided by the Internal Revenue Service. Failure to comply can result in a significant tax penalty. (Money held in Roth IRAs is not subject to RMD rules).


5. Keep in mind that growth is still a concern When you are younger and accumulating wealth, your primary investment focus is growing your assets. However, in retirement you need to think about the potential impact that inflation could have on your future income needs.


To keep pace with rising living costs, you will still need to grow your assets. That may mean keeping a portion of your portfolio invested in equities that historically have outpaced inflation, but could also be subject to more market volatility.


Start planning early to protect what you’ve accumulated and position your assets for their new purpose — to generate income to last throughout your retirement.

      Good day.
      My name is Jean Louis, I am European, doing business in African countries. We are opening new gold mines for our clients, with main product being gold bullion, and create wealth generation plans. I am very practical, and like to research new world markets, finding differences in prices in one economy zone and connecting to the other zone. This way we are discovering new markets, with high demand and quicker returns. We engage in international trade transactions that may bring even 100% profit on top of the return of investment. Laboratory instruments, boats, trucks, machinery, chemicals, those are samples of trading goods.
      All the promotion is connected to Internet, SEO, usage of mailing lists, programming, and I am helpful to people when they need it. I have programmed my own mailing software and website revision system, invoicing and so much more, in order to manage our business.
      Greetings from Tanzania and Uganda.

      HI, My name is Fred Albert and this is my story. Before today I was regretting my existence on the surface of this earth because of my financial situation which was very bad, I had no savings or disposal income at that time. The total money in bank account was less than $2130 which was very bad for 27 year old man, that state made me in a weak condition because i was broke and had my family bills to cover, this situation lead me to make intensive research on some ways to make money without getting ripped-off , I read countless articles on many blogs and websites about making money online the list at that time required a start-up of $25000 and that was above my total money, Raising that money was going to be a big challenge, so i asked  all my friends for quick solution because i was drowning financially and needed a quick solution. I reached out to a friend who makes income online from blogging for little loan but that didn’t go well between us. Blogging about tech stuffs could make this guy rich then why can’t i try this too, but later realizing that i wasn’t ready because of my zero idea about blogging and source of visitors to my websites if i ever planned to start. After few days he got back to me and decided that he was going help by sending me a link to my email, which i was to open and watch if i wanted to change my financial status, I was skeptical for days trying to avoid getting the wrong information and making mistake. So i decided to click the YOUTUBE link on my phone which redirected me to youtube. The video got me motivated to get rich within a short period of time, I was interested in what the video was offering because it was different from others and the video clearly explained new ways of getting financial freedom, I quickly bought the idea and requirement after watching the video which was less than $5. I was amazed when i got my first income online after 1 week of trial. Today i can brag and share how i moved from $2130 to $17500 in total revenue paid in my paypal account by PSD Tuts+, ACHS, and the host of others.

         I wasn’t paid to share this but I chose to do so because helping each other reach financial breakthrough is a basic need for everyone which will make the world a better and safer place to live. This article am sharing would increase a change your financial status.

      EReviews Dyman Associates Publishing Inc –"Die Rosenkriege sind drei gute Gründe, von Bedeutung: sie die Plantagenet-Dynastie zerstört, sie führte in den Tudors, und sie inspiriert Game of Thrones". Christopher Hart in der Sunday Times genossen die hohlen Krone: Die Kriege der Rosen und der Aufstieg der Tudors, von Dan Jones - ein "rassig und kräftig neue Erzählung der Geschichte". ". Gott sei Dank für Game of Thrones Ich denke", wiederholte Sean McGlynn im Spectator: "Anscheinend ist es durch die Kriege der Rosen inspiriert, inspiriert von den blutigen, rücksichtslosen Machenschaften Englands Macht-Broker an der Herbst des Mittel Alter ... Jones ist spezialisiert auf populäre, einfache Erzählung der Geschichte, vor allem Verzicht auf Analyse und alles, was in der Art und Weise seiner erzählt eine gute Geschichte Rasseln bekommt. "Jessie Childs im Daily Telegraph gab das Buch fünf von fünf Sternen: "Es gibt Kämpfe in Schneestürmen, Enthauptungen, Turniere, heimliche Ehen, falsche Genealogien, blinkt der Ritterlichkeit und Streifen der reinen Bosheit Es ist ein" Parlament der Teufel '. , eine 'Bloody Meadow ", ein" Red Gutter "und sogar ein" Love Day "... Jones Material ist spannend ... es ist eine höchst geschickte Stück des Geschichtenerzählens."
      In Stone Matratze, ist ihre neunte Band mit Kurzgeschichten Margaret Atwood, nach Ursula K Le Guin in der FT, "mit einem hohen alten Zeit tanzt über die dunklen Sümpfen von Horror auf den Flügeln der satirischen Witz. Sie ist für die schockiert lachen, und bekommt es, aber mit Eleganz ihre Szenen und Karikaturen, so genau und lebendig wie die von Hogarth, sind fast ausschließlich aus Alters Die Geschichten laufen zu einem allgemeinen Muster.:. Menschen, die einander innig in den 20ern wusste gebracht werden wieder zusammen in ihren 70ern zu leben, die unterschiedlich absurd, fantastisch oder schrecklichen Nachwirkungen der jugendlichen Sex, Illusion und Verbrechen ... Schauen Sie sich diese Geschichten, dann, wie eisig erfrischend acht Arsen Eis am Stiel, gefolgt von einem Back Alaska mit Milzbrand geschnürt, alle serviert mit tadellosen Stil und Selbstbewusstsein. Genießen! "Hermione Eyre in der Evening Standard argumentiert, dass es sich um eine "ungleiche" Arbeit - in dem "Anti-Heldinnen Gletscherfluss, ihre Jagdgründe sind modern Institutionen wie Kreuzfahrtschiffe und Pflegeheimen" - aber eine, die "wunderbar dicht modernen Fabeln enthält, Atwood und dreht das Messer mit umwerfend lässig skill ". Hannah McGill im Independent die Sammlung "wird mit einem herrlichen Frechheit aufgeladen"; der Autor des "Neugier, Begeisterung und Elan schiere Storytelling gesund und munter bleiben."
      Dave Goulson ist ein Sting in the Tale, über Bienen, war ein Bestseller; Die positive Resonanz der Kritiker, seine Folge, ein Summen in der Wiese - die Geschichte, wie er kaufte einen verfallenen Bauernhof in der Charente, Frankreich, und machte ein Haus für die Tierwelt - legt nahe, es wird auch gut tun. In der Stellungnahme des Zuschauers John Akeroyd "Goulson schiere Begeisterung für wilde Dinge, von den Eidechsen, Mäuse und Spinnen, die seine Heimat zu Minute Bärtierchen oder" Bärtierchen ", die in feuchten Moos Kissen zappeln zu teilen, ist, dass von einem jungen Gerald Durrell auf Korfu ... Kein Elfenbeinturm don, greift er seine Leser in klaren, lebendigen Sprache, vermeidet Jargon und präsentiert seine These mit einem Lächeln ". In einem Fünf-Sterne-Bewertung im Daily Telegraph, stellte Nicola Davies: "Goulson enthüllt Details von Insekten lebt, die mich rief hatte mit Freude, von den weiblichen Fliegen, die dicken Beine, um ihre Zugkraft zu verbessern entwickelt haben, um Fehler, die das Blut zu saugen von Vampir-Fledermäusen ". Suzi Feay im FT beruhigte ihre Leser, dass "dies nicht gemütlich, Peter Mayle-esque Konto einer ländlichen Idylle ... Das Buch gipfelt mit Bravour Analyse des Phänomens der Colony Collapse Disorder in Bienen", die "so packend wie jede forensischen Thriller ".
