Prepare your clients for their most expensive "purchase"

Retirement isn’t cheap. Preparing a solid plan starts with understanding the true cost. But calculating it is based on several variables, making it tough to estimate. You need a revised framework to guide your clients better.

Join David Blanchett of PGIM (Prudential's global investment management business) to help your clients prepare for retirement on their own terms. We discuss the implications of properly forecasting asset growth and considerations when estimating liability.

Key takeaways include:

  • Gaining a better understanding of cost variables
  • Calculating income replacement rate more effectively
  • Employing an improved spending model
  • Helping clients understand how expenses change — and the implications of these changes
  • Discovering today’s “safe” initial withdrawal rate

If you help clients plan for retirement, this is a session you won’t want to miss.
