How to Generate Retirement Income Efficiently

New White Paper by Dr. Mathew Greenwald and Pacific Life


NEWPORT BEACH, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Pacific Life has published a new white paper, A New Generation Retirement Strategy, by Dr. Mathew Greenwald, president and CEO of Greenwald & Associates. Commissioned by Pacific Life, the white paper analyzes the economic, demographic, and global challenges faced by today’s retirees, suggests rethinking traditional retirement strategies, and offers a new approach focusing on how to produce income more efficiently.
According to Dr. Greenwald, to maintain a comfortable lifestyle, today’s retirees need a strategy that generates larger amounts of income over longer periods of time. To do this, Dr. Greenwald suggests focusing on two core concepts: 1) introducing immediate annuities into the portfolio, and 2) increasing the portfolio’s equity allocation. This enables clients to achieve key income goals efficiently, using less of their investable assets, and enhances the client’s opportunity to benefit from the growth potential of equities, which can be an important factor in dealing with inflation.
Dr. Greenwald’s report includes real-world illustrations that show the advantages of this strategy, including how its benefits increase the longer a client spends in retirement. He also debunks some of the myths about immediate annuities.
“We’re delighted to offer this important new white paper from Dr. Mathew Greenwald,” says Christine Tucker, Pacific Life’s vice president of marketing, Retirement Solutions Division. “Offering financial professionals strategic insights is an important part of The Pacific Life Experience, our consultative approach to helping financial professionals build their practices, and we believe they will find his report invaluable in serving clients’ retirement income needs.”
