Intelligent Investing will be presenting to the Bob Jones Alumni on November 15th at CityRange Steakhouse. Please RSVP by emailing: alumni@bju.edu.

5 Things You Must Know Before You START Retirement

With baby-boomers comprising one of the largest groups of our population, it should come as no surprise that another large group is made up of those in retirement mode. Everyone should have a game plan as they head towards retirement or are in retirement. As Benjamin Franklin quoted, “If you fail to plan, then you plan to fail.” In this light-hearted talk, we’ll cover topics such as:

  1. Spending
  2. Time Horizon
  3. Asset Allocation
  4. Risk Alignment
  5. Tax Avoidance
