The retirement planning industry is in a state of flux. For the past several years, much of the focus has been on Baby Boomers and helping them save enough to retire. Now that they are beginning to retire, the Baby Boomer focus is less on accumulation than it is on income distribution. Companies have been addressing this need by creating new tools and programs to help both investors and advisors make the transition from the need to save money to the need to make the savings last.
The continued weakness in the economy is also forcing changes. High unemployment, a poor housing market, low interest rates on savings and a volatile stock market is putting investors of all ages on edge. Younger investors have seen their parents and grandparents financially hurt by the recent recession and are much more aware than they used to be of the need to save for the future.
This study is an update of the issues surrounding the retirement planning field, including the effects of the challenging economic environment, aging population, and a changing regulatory environment.
