The July webinar explored the need to adjust spending through retirement to accommodate changing circumstances.
Advisors and researchers have long commented on the need to adjust spending (up or down) through retirement to accommodate changing circumstances. In this webinar, Justin Fitzpatrick, PhD, CFA, CFP®, Co-founder and CIO of Income Lab discussed how adjustment-based retirement income planning differs from accumulation planning and examined how this shift affects investor psychology and client experience. Fitzpatrick shared evidence from historical stress tests that spending adjustments tend to be less extreme than researchers and advisors had previously feared.
