Did you lose money in the two bear markets during the last decade?
Two questions can help you establish your risk comfort level:
First Question: How would your lifestyle change if you had a 30 to 50 percent GAIN in your investment portfolio?
Some people respond that they might spend or travel a little more or just feel more secure. Nothing will dramatically change.
Second Question: How would your lifestyle change if you had a 30 to 50 percent LOSS in your investment portfolio?
Some people respond that they would be devastated or have to move to a smaller home or drop a club membership or some other dramatic change. The loss has a dramatic change in their mindset and lifestyle.
This is the primary reason why affluent Americans are far more concerned with protecting what they accumulated rather than chasing a risky possible high rate of return.

IRA & 401(k) Rollover
When you change jobs or retire, there are four things you can do with the money in your employer-sponsored retirement plan:
- Leave the money where it is
- Take the cash (and pay income taxes and perhaps a 10 percent federal penalty tax if you are younger than age 59½ )
- Transfer the money to another employer plan (if the plan allows)
- Roll the money over into an IRA
Rolling over from one qualified plan to another qualified plan allows your money to continue growing tax-deferred until you receive distributions in retirement. We can help you determine if a rollover is the right move for you, and we can help find the best vehicle to help conserve and grow your rollover assets.
