At this session, you'll learn:

a rigorous but easy way to illustrate the accumulation phase of a retirement portfolio
how to simulate the distribution phase based on a wide variety of client-driven variables
a professional process for analyzing a client's portfolio survival rate on the fly based on RMD or non-RMD situations   
a practical approach for fiduciaries to illustrate, real-time in meetings with clients, the difference in portfolio growth based on asset allocation models and investment expenses

The analysis you'll learn about is based on a 60-year investing lifetime of 34 "individuals" over rolling periods from 1926-2018. You'll come to understand the range of investor outcomes over long periods based on key variables.
