As the baby boomers reach retirement, advisers must solve new problems for clients. Retirement income is different as clients shift their focus from maximizing wealth to creating sustainable income, face a greater range of risks, and increasingly must solve a complex lifetime financial problem. Key retirement risks include longevity, market and the newly emergent sequence of returns, and personal spending shock. Each risk requires different income tools and risk management techniques. Two distinct schools of thought have emerged within the retirement income world: probability-based and safety-first approaches. Join Wade D. Pfau, Ph.D., CFA to learn how different retirement income tools can be combined to build more efficient retirement strategies in a way that best integrates aspects from both schools of thought.

It's no secret that all retirement calculators are not created equal, and it's been well reported that the same inputs receive varying longevity results across retirement tools. Now, research shows that many of these calculators cheat investors out of six or more years of retirement income by using inefficient drawdown strategies.This discovery comes from the research article, "Tax-Efficient Withdrawal Strategies," published in The Financial Analysts Journal and written by William Meyer, CEO, Retiree Inc., and William Reichenstein, PhD, Co-founder, Retiree Inc. Join Retiree Income for this educational webinar to hear the research authors debunk the conventional wisdom around tax-efficient retirement withdrawals, which suggests that in investor should withdraw funds from one account at a time moving to the next one after the previous is exhausted, starting with tax-deferred accounts and moving to tax-exempt accounts. Meyer and Reichenstein will demonstrate that this conventional wisdom, which many retirement income tools are built on, is not the most tax efficient.

Using Vanguard's Advisor's Alpha research, this presentation focuses on helping financial planners quantify the ways to add value for clients through relationship-oriented services that can go beyond market out performance.

1) Review the more reliable benefits of your client relationships beyond outperformance, which has proved elusive for most investors.
2) Quantify the relationship-oriented wealth management services outlined in Vanguard's Advisor's Alpha concept.
3) Summarize the benefits to planners, including better alignment with client needs and improved client retention.
With 10,000 baby boomers turning 62 every single day and over $6 trillion in home equity amongst your senior clients, reverse mortgages just may be the late coming Cinderella to the retirement ball that fixes the retirement crisis we are facing.

In this program, we will create a major paradigm shift in your thinking and discuss how recent program changes and groundbreaking research by the financial planning industry, and noted academics, have overwhelmingly proven the necessity of using reverse mortgages at the age of 62, not 82.
