how long will my money last?

With so much focus on reaching retirement, many don’t consider how long it needs to last.

There are a few factors to consider which will vary person to person.

investment strategy

With such a long time horizon, retirees should still consider their approach to risk and how to invest their savings. Just because you have retired, doesn’t mean you need to take an ultra-conservative approach to investing. There is still time to invest in more aggressive investments, such as shares and property trusts, but only if this is within your comfort zone.
