I was reading on Kitces.com and really enjoyed his post on Adjusting Safe Withdrawal Rates To The Retiree’s Time Horizon. Just before we dig into this article, remember that this comes from the assumption that a 4% withdrawal rate per year will not deplete your capital and can sustain you with a very high rate of success (see Trinity Study).
Every day we are bombarded with news. In the finance world, it goes from bad, to somewhat good, to plainly dreadful news. 🙂 In my field, I see many financial planners or financial service providers that will have TVs playing CNBC all day! I do not know if it is to show their client that they are on top of things or just to use as a decoration but personally, I think that the former use is much more appropriate.
