Considering a fixed income investment strategy? You just might be ahead of the curve. The Wall Street Journal recently reported that the U.S. retirement savings deficit is between $6.8 and $14.0 trillion.
Yes, we are between $6.8 and $14.0 trillion behind where we need to be to secure our aging population’s retirement.
Spiraling world debt coupled with economic and political uncertainty means you must be prepared.
According to Forbes, we are facing “The Greatest Retirement Crisis in History.” In the decades to come, we will witness millions of elderly Americans slipping into poverty. Being too frail to work yet too poor to retire will become the new normal. You could be one of them, unless you take control of your financial situation.
But, you didn’t get where you are today without educating yourself, working hard, paying your taxes, and doing the “right thing.” You plan and deserve to retire with the lifestyle and dignity you want.
Fixed income investments in your Self-Directed IRA are one way to help do just that!
Remember, alternative fixed-income investments give you a reliable monthly income, typically from assets such as real estate, equipment leasing, and more.
Here are 3 reasons to include alternative fixed-income assets in your retirement planning:
- Real Return Rates – Many investment opportunities will report return rates that are really more of a snapshot in time rather than an average of all their returns. Real return rates are those that are adjusted for the ups and downs of the market and help keep things constant over time. This means you get paid a dependable payout.
- Reliable Income Stream – Retirement isn’t what it was a generation ago. We’re all living longer than ever and experiencing a better quality of life in that time. You need reliable income, and fixed income investments provide that.
- Separation from Wall Street- When you strike an alternative asset fixed-income deal, your payout is not dependent on the performance of Wall Street. The control is back in your hands!
There’s no doubt that the future looks bleak for retirees who do not take control of their retirement finances and do not plan on making sure they have the income they need to live the lifestyle they deserve.
Alternative fixed-income investments can help you do just that. Next week we’ll dive into real estate as an income producer. Make sure you join us.
