But most financial firms take one of two approaches: growth or security.
Both routes come with significant risks.
If you go ultra-safe and focus on maintaining what you have, you could be forced to sacrifice your lifestyle as your savings get smaller or you experience an unexpected expense.
Meanwhile, if you focus solely on growing your wealth through investments, what happens if there’s a market crash like in 2008? When your assets deflate, you risk losing it all or being forced to scrounge by while you wait for the market to recover.
Even if you’re lucky enough to never experience a market crash during your retirement, your wealth can easily be drained away by taxes.
