Nick Bliss, Partner & Financial Advisor with Clear Strategy, Interviewed on Podcast About a Holistic Approach to Retirement Planning

Nick Bliss discusses how Clear Strategy aims to provide confidence around financial planning by utilizing its experienced advisors to create a customized plan tailored to better support their clients’ financial, family, and life goals.

Retirement planning is integral to financial planning and needs to be considered from a holistic perspective. Retirement planning encompasses more than simply ensuring that one has enough money saved for retirement, but also a plan for using those funds most effectively throughout retirement years. Retirement planning must consider the changing needs of individuals over time as well as account for potential unanticipated changes in circumstances or health issues – all while maintaining desired lifestyle goals.

Some key elements to include when considering a holistic approach to retirement planning are: understanding existing resources, determining current expenses and projecting future ones, setting long-term goals and objectives, assessing investment options, creating a tax strategy, weighing insurance coverage options, setting up estate plans and creating legacy plans. Understanding existing resources includes taking inventory of current assets such as cash, investments, and pension plans. Retirement planning then involves using the available resources to create a budget that will provide the desired lifestyle during retirement.

Ultimately, considering a holistic approach to retirement planning offers individuals the best chance for success and peace of mind during their golden years. Retirement plans should account for current and future needs while considering changing scenarios. Retirement planning should also consider ways to minimize taxes and maximize return on investments, including insurance coverage options and legacy planning. A holistic approach to retirement planning can help provide financial security and peace of mind for years to come.
