Portfolio Strategy & Investment Returns
There are various possible sources of income that may impact your retirement savings. It’s important to understand each of your income sources, how much you can expect from them, and how the combination of your income streams will sustain you throughout retirement. Your income sources may include:
RRSP / RRIFs
CPP or QPP and OAS
First, consider all your different income sources. Then design a plan that allows you to maximize the amount of income you withdraw from each source using the most effective and tax-efficient way possible.
When moving from accumulating wealth to drawing income from your portfolios, your investment objectives and strategy will evolve. Retirement income portfolios place more emphasis on generating income for the short-term while growing and protecting capital over the longer term.
There are various factors that can influence your income plan in retirement, including interest rates, how you time withdrawals, pension regulations or unexpected life events. They include:
Historically Low Rates
Low interest rates are forcing many to consider higher-risk alternatives.
Timing of withdrawals (sequence of returns)
Withdrawals made during market downturns could erode your savings faster than anticipated.
The rules for CPP and OAS could mean working past age 65.
A sudden life event
Divorce, dealing with aging parents, sudden illness or disability can alter your income needs.
It’s important to assess these and other factors that are specific to you when building your plan.
