064 Christine Benz: Avoiding Blind Spots in Your Retirement Portfolio Planning



IN THIS EPISODE, THE ANNUITY MAN AND CHRISTINE BENZ DISCUSS:
Why Christine is so passionate about financial education and retirement portfolio planning.
Why decumulation is not bad (and when it is a good thing).
Retirement blindspots to be aware of.
Staying mindful of additional, variable costs in your spending plan.
Bucket approach investing and portfolios.

KEY TAKEAWAYS:
Your portfolio doesn’t know whether your withdrawals are coming from income or from selling appreciated securities, what matters is that you are not taking out too much.
People tend to overestimate our ability and desire to continue working and, often, retire earlier than they originally expected to.
There is power in diversification in your income portfolios.
The products under the annuity umbrella are incredibly varied. The type of annuity that is best for you depends on what your needs are.

“If you’re looking for something that will zig when your stocks zag, you probably want to ensure that your portfolio includes that cash and treasury bonds.” — Christine Benz

  1. She speaks in such terrible lingo, "people are receptive to learn at point of purchase"; What the heck that mean? how does she make up such terrible terms? Can she speak more plainly? She always does it. She complicates things more than they need to be.
