Tracey Anton shares investment advice on local radio:
What's Behind a 4% Withdrawal Recommendation for Retirement Accounts?
Perhaps you're retired or are living on an inheritance. You have capital and need additional spending money each year. The secret is withdrawing consistently at a rate that will not eat up your capital. In fact, you would like your capital to grow! Yes! That's possible and not unreasonable.
Some advisors and products like to scare you. They quote low percentage withdrawals of 4% and want you to purchase an annuity effectively willing them the principal in your account. A good deal for them, bad deal for you and your beneficiaries. Googins and Anton helps people spend more and pass on everything remaining to loved ones. Don't settle for less.

DIVERSIFICATION - One of the most effective ways to reduce risk is to diversify your
portfolio. No one type of security, asset class or investment manager provides the best performance over all time periods. So a range of investments should reduce the risk of each of the investments.

Risk cannot be eliminated but, it can be managed. Assessing risk and potential investment returns should be in the context of your goals and your timeline.
Types of Risk
Investment market risk - the possibility that all investments in a market sector, will be influenced by an event.
- Investment specific risk - the possibility that a particular investment may under
perform compared to competitors.
- Market timing risk - the possibility that the investment may be sold at a time when the sale price is at a low-point or purchased when the sale price is at a high-point.
- Inflation risk - the possibility that your investment return is below the inflation rate, which reduces the spending power of your money.
- Credit risk - the potential failure of a debtor to make payments on amounts they have borrowed.
- Interest rate risk - the possibility that your investment will be adversely impacted by a fall or rise in interest rates.
- Legislative risk - the possibility that a change in legislation will impact the appropriateness of certain investments.
- Liquidity risk - the ease with which you can sell or liquidate your investments. Some investments impose exit fees or have limitations on withdrawals. Other investments may be difficult to sell due to a lack of buyers.
