In the last few decades the whole concept of retirement has shifted - from what was once seen as the beginning of your 'twilight years', to a time that is now regarded as a new beginning, an opportunity to get your 'second wind' - to take off and never look back. In many ways retirement has become a new life stage. Thanks to better health care we are living longer, meaning that some Australians will spend more time in retirement than in the workforce.
So how do you manage your retirement plans during market volatility such as what we are seeing happen at the moment?
In our latest 'ask Paul Clitheroe' webcast segment, ipac founding director Paul Clitheroe discusses this very issue, specifically taking into account how long you're wanting to live in retirement and how much you will need to fund the lifestyle that you want.
