In the short segment, Anthony Pellegrino discussed the uncertainty of the current global economy, as various commodities and asset classes react differently to an environment of rising interest rates and ongoing inflation. Some of the instruments that Mr. Pellegrino mentioned being effective to garner yield in the current environment included inverse ETFs, options strategies, and hybrid annuities. He also discussed the effects of an aging population and the subsequent declining workforce. Referring to the approximately 78,000,000 baby boomers retiring over the next 18 years, he talked about their concerns that they will outlive their retirement funds.
One tool that Goldstone Financial Group has been employing for retirees has been a hybrid annuity that provides “a pension like income,” thereby ensuring that a retiree will have ongoing income and allowing them to utilize other portions of their portfolio to “hedge against inflation through more aggressive investments.” Goldstone Financial Group also recently launched a free, easy-to-use retirement planning tool to help investors with planning for a secure retirement. The complimentary quiz helps to identify which of the five primary areas of retirement is potentially the biggest “retirement gap” facing anyone who is looking to retire in the near future.
Additionally, Goldstone Financial Group offers free access to their published articles that have been featured in numerous leading financial news sources, including Forbes, Money, Newsweek, Investor’s Business Daily, U.S. News and World Report, Kiplinger, and The Wall Street Journal. These articles touch on subjects regarding overlooked tax deductions, the benefits and drawbacks of fixed annuities versus bonds, and how to treat financial portfolio stress, among many others.
