  • In retirement, know what you’ll need, and adjust your plan accordingly.

4:23 Work With A Guide

  • When you go fly fishing, use a guide who knows the river.
  • In retirement, use an advisor who knows what you need to do in order to succeed in retirement.
  • Turn to advisor to help you understand the confusing elements of your portfolio.
