JFS Adult Connections: Behavioral Finance: How Our Actions Can Prepare Us For Retirement

  • Temple Beth Or 5315 Creedmoor Road Raleigh United States (map)

The stock market sell-off this past year resulted in the worst December performance since 1931.  Although it can be hard to completely take our emotions out of our investment decisions, its during times like these when we need to force ourselves to focus on the facts instead of how we feel.

The increasing challenge of planning for income to last throughout our lifetime has become more complex.  Many people underestimate their life span and therefore risk outliving their assets.  Learn how five major pitfalls can impact our retirement goals. The barriers we will discuss can be very useful as you look at your own approach to volatility and time horizon as you move towards your retirement goals.
