Over the next decade, the rate that clients will seek retirement advice is expected to grow exponentially. Planning for life in retirement presents a number of risks which need to be mitigated in order to maximise your client's income in retirement.
This is where Investec can help.
Managing the risks of volatile returns is key when planning retirement income
Exposure to market losses in the early years of retirement can impact how long your pension lasts.
Withdrawal rate risk
Consumers may exhaust their assets too quickly, advisers need to ensure clients maintain a realistic spending pattern through market cycles.
An investment term of 20 years or more needs to be planned for as more and more retirees live longer.
The investment strategy needs to hedge the fall in the purchasing power as the price of goods and services rise over time.
Markets are inherently volatile and can expose investors to the possibility of loss in the short term.
Some investors have a habit of undertaking the wrong action at the wrong time. Advisers need to maintain their clients’ long term asset allocation through market cycles.
At Investec we believe bucketing helps to mitigate against client’s emotional responses to the various investment risks we’ve highlighted. This typically involves:
- Cash for a client’s immediate income needs
- A short-term portfolio of low-risk investments
- A diversified portfolio of higher-risk investments that can be left to grow on a long-term basis.
Through the thoughtful design and implementation of an investment strategy that can cater to client income needs and risk profiles, both our Discretionary Fund Management Service and MPS on Platforms service can help advice firms achieve their client goals through a Centralised Retirement Proposition (CRP). This enables them to plan for the life they wish to have in retirement.
