This might be one of the most important conversations we’ve done at The Compound this year. It’s every investor’s worst nightmare and we get people asking us about this scenario all the time.
Ben Carlson looked at what every retiree’s worst nightmare would look like under a range of stock market crash scenarios. Taking a hypothetical 60% stocks / 40% fixed income portfolio, assuming a steady annual withdrawal rate, Ben discusses what that might have been like, and what investors should take away from the exercise.
Josh Brown and Michael Batnick add their own two cents to the conversation. Let us know what you think in the comments below!
