Wade D. Pfau, Ph.D., CFA, RICP new book is hitting the target for those concerned with the unknown future of Retirement Planning.  Dr. Pfau stated, “two fundamentally different philosophies for retirement income planning, which I call probability-based and safety-first, diverge on the critical issue of where a retirement plan is best served: in the risk/reward trade-offs of a diversified and aggressive investment portfolio that relies primarily on the stock market, or in the contractual protections of insurance products that integrate the power of risk pooling and actuarial science alongside investments.”

Dr. Pfau also explained how he considers the potential role for different types of annuities, including simple income annuities, variable annuities, and fixed index annuities. In his book, he explains how different annuities work and how readers can evaluate them. He examines

the potential for whole life insurance to contribute to a retirement income plan. He concludes that the integrated strategies preferred by safety-first advocates support more efficient retirement outcomes. Safety-first retirement planning helps to meet financial goals with less worry. This book explains how to evaluate different insurance options and implement these solutions into an integrated retirement plan.
