Jack Phelps, founder of The Relaxing Retirement Coach, explains why planning for the protection of your lifestyle sustaining income, as opposed to the protection of your principal, should be your dominant investment goal in retirement.
Wellesley, MA – November 28, 2011 – Jack Phelps, founder of The Relaxing Retirement Coach, a Retirement Coaching company, recently published an article on his website (www.theretirementcoach.com) examining the “performance gap” that exists between market returns and the returns actually realized by individual investors. The article, titled “Performance Gap Reason #1,” explains that a major reason why this gap exists is due to focusing on the wrong “investment governing” issue: protecting principal vs. protecting purchasing power.
Jack Phelps writes, “What you can’t help but take away from those statistics is that, while it makes all the news, markets or bad investments are not our biggest problem. Far from it. The big problem is investor behavior which is driven by their ‘strategy’ or lack thereof.”
