help you do that. they're referred to as nevada's retirement brothers and both are here now. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> nick, let's start with you. many people are intimidate by the idea of retirement and don't know where to start. you say knowledge is >> when someone is planning on retiring and saving, there's so many unknowns. for instance, one might think i don't know the stock market is going to do or social security will look like down the road. i don't know how much to save. there's so much unknown. if you have a good idea of how much you need to save and have a good idea of smart places to put your money, basically you have a plan and factors go aosayy. so, by propering, you can be less intimidate by how much you need to save. the other day, yesterday, i was meeting with someone in her had saved a little bit for retirement but wasn't sure if she was on track or where she needed to start to finish the job.
her some basic places where she could save and some places she could smartly invest so she can be less intimidated. and we walked through the plan and it was no longer a problem for her. >> you have to steer it. i don't know if a lot of women realize this, they outlive menoi so that you have enough money in retirement. >> absolutely. that's why it's especially important forelationship to know what is going on in the finances. if you give it all to the man and he is doing it off, if he passes away early the burden is quite large for the spouse. so it's important to both be on the same page when planning for retirement. >> let's play a game, financial fact or fiction. the first question is: simple mix of stocks andbands are sufficient to provide income that i cannot outlive. fact or fiction. >> faction.
depending on your situation. if you were just take ought the income as discretionary income, income you were using as your fun money beyond your typical expenses, then a simple mix of stocks and bond if you're taking another one or two percent may get you where you need to be. but if you're relying on that income as your basic expenses, if you remember, 2001 to 2010, people call that the lost decade because in the dow jones for that ten-year period of time the average return was slightly negative. so i you're taking out five or six percent towards your income, then during that ten-year period of time you may have lost half of the value of your portfolio. that's whoa so many people say, at that point if i lost half of my portfolio, do i need to look at my spending habits, need to look at finally making an
we have people call from the show and say, let's up. here iomes to finances. buy and hold always wins. >> there's a lot of debate on this question. i'm going to say fiction. buy and hold does not always win. over younger in your 30s and 40s and saving you have time on your side. you can take more risk and ride the rollercoaster in risky returns. when you get older and closer to retirement your priorities shift airplane from maximizing growth to preserving . so, the priorities change, so some seismic shifts in the stactee, especially if you're within ten years of retirement. it's just time to get
>> when you're younger you might want to save more, save aggressively. when your older, you don't need to save as much if you have been doing this all along. >> exactly. it's not about maximizing breath at that point. you -- growth at that point. you have too much to lose. and eric was mentioning a second ago, 2008, during the lost decade, that period, if someone was wanting to retire in 20, then they had a lot of risky investments, chances are they conservative, the stock market retire. >> fact or fiction no bigbe fact or fiction.
conservative. you may need to take a big risk if you're trying to get that loss you had incurred back in that same year. but for a lot of our clients they say, you know what? i want to start let's go from there. if you're not taking big risks and big losses then percent or six percent return is a big return for them because they're not having to weather the storm. >> that's good. to preserve your time. but you have a powerful tool to retirement, very simple report but if you're listening today and you are in that time period where you are not sure exactly where you stand, where you need years prepare for retirement, this report is for you. it's simple and basic that's what retirement should be,
