The uncertain economy makes it challenging for the retired investor to generate needed income. Today's markets present challenges--interest rate and credit risks in particular--that should be considered when evaluating investments. Rising interest rates can have a dramatic impact on the value of investments, but there are strategies available to help manage those risks. We will discuss the realities of investing for retirement income in a low interest rate world and how the current economic environment can affect investments. This workshop will educate investors, not sell investment products.
