Many of your aging clients are looking forward to a fun-filled retirement. But since retirement can now last 20-30+ years, they could get blindsided by increased complexity in the later phases of retirement.

The client piece below outlines why retirement complexity increases as we age and how to prepare for it. By sharing and discussing this piece with your clients, they’ll see you as an advisor who helps them plan for their entire retirement, not just the fun phase.

“It’s imperative that today’s advisory practice evolve from a near singular focus on financial security to the new business of longevity planning.”
