Asset Distribution: The Next Big Wave

The buzzwords over the past 10 years have been asset accumulation and asset allocation.  I propose that if you jump on this bandwagon now, you may be following the wrong paradigm.

Don’t get me wrong, asset accumulation and allocation are still very important. But the next big wave in our industry will be asset distribution.

With 76 million baby boomers approaching retirement, how prepared are you to provide them with a safe, dependable, consistent stream of income?

The skills we acquired in order to have been successful in the past will continue to serve us well into the future — if and only if we use those tools properly.  If the wrong tool is used in a particular situation, the results could be disastrous!

Let’s look at an example:

Benjamin Franklin once remarked the only certainties in life were death and taxes. But America’s most beloved patriot could never have foreseen a third possibility — caring for a rapidly aging population — because average life expectancy in 1776 was only 35 years of age.

Average life expectancy now hovers around age 79 in the U.S. and age 84 in Japan, and it’s rising fast worldwide. By 2030, one-fifth of the U.S. population will be 65-plus. In South Korea, life expectancy is expected to reach 90 years of age.

What does all this mean for clients and their advisors? Nancy Simm, our Director of Long-Term Care and Longevity Planning, has spent most of her adult life working in this field and thinking through the ramifications. The upshot? When it comes to long-term-care coverage, everyone should have a plan for it.
