Are you ready for retirement? Do you have a plan in place? Have you made any investments that are relatively certain to fund you in your advanced years? When it comes to investment strategies for retirement, most people could use a little assistance – particularly when you consider the current unstable state of the stock market and the questionable possibility for other moneymaking opportunities.

Protect Your Retirement Savings from Stock Market Volatility

Many countries across the globe are grappling with the global pandemic: COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease 2019). As a result, international economic activities have been disrupted and stock markets are extremely volatile. While staying healthy and safe via social distancing are the uppermost in everyone’s mind, one should not overlook the long-term effects that this virus may have on their own financial lives. Take the time you have at home to identify the most ideal retirement income generators (RIGs) that can generate income that lasts the rest of your life. In addition, these RIGs must be able to withstand inevitable stock market crashes if you are planning on living a few more decades.

Retirement Income in a Steady Stream

At some point in your life, you’re going to make the move from saving and prime earning years to the time you’ve waited for – the years during which you can reap the fruits of your labor. Hopefully, you’ve built up a considerable nest egg from which you can draw. Before you enter that phase of decumulation, however, some prime retirement investments need to be considered and made. Making the right decisions ensure that you have a steady income stream after retirement.

To provide a steady stream of income, the following are suggested retirement investments:

  • Total Return Portfolio
  • Dividend income funds
  • Closed end funds
  • With a lifetime income rider, variable annuity
  • REITs (real estate investment trusts)
  • Rental real estate
  • Retirement income funds
  • Bonds
  • Immediate annuities

It’s never too early to start planning for retirement, particularly considering the state of the economy and today’s life expectancies.
