Allow your clients to seek returns with greater confidence.
In today’s challenging low-yield environment, risk mitigation is a key component of any robust retirement strategy.
A well-diversified portfolio combined with a protection strategy, can enhance the overall risk/return trade off, delivering additional certainty to your retirement portfolios.
The impact of falling interest rates
The record low interest rate environment is reducing the attractiveness of cash and other capital protected solutions, punishing clients who require a greater level of stability and safety.
Longer life expectancies. A double-edged sword?
With an ever-increasing lifespan, retirees need sustainable investment yields and incomes that will outlast them – but not at the expense of increased capital drawdowns or unacceptable levels of volatility and sequencing risk.
And how can clients achieve the returns they need to maintain their lifestyle without introducing an unbearable level of risk and anxiety?
