Realizing Retirement

Have you given any thought to your retirement lately? While it may seem like retirement is something you think about late in your career, it’s actually wise to start as early as possible. That way you can take full advantage of your opportunities and adjust investments to match your risk tolerance. Each stage of your career represents a unique period in your retirement process.

Phases of Retirement Process

Key Private Bank has divided these stages into four phases, each with its own special considerations. We can guide you through these phases and make sure you’re asking the right questions to keep you on track – so you can retire on your terms.

Phase 1: Accumulation

Ten or more years left before retirement? Asset accumulation should be your principal goal. Together, we’ll review your investment strategy, establish your objectives and assess other wealth issues to prioritize your retirement needs. As life events occur, we’ll help you adjust to stay on the path.

Phase 2: Pre-Retirement

Looking at 3-10 years before you can retire? Now’s a crucial time to plan. Your earnings may be increasing substantially, and you’ll likely have a more accurate picture of personal and family needs. Your Key Private Bank team will monitor your plan closely and fine-tune based on needed adjustments.

Phase 3: At Retirement

Are you 1-2 years away from retiring? You’ll need to start identifying specific needs, like inheritance, and any unforeseen needs, such as health issues. We’ll guide you through this often emotional stage, and make sure your careful planning is rewarded.

Phase 4: During Retirement

Congratulations! You’ve made the leap into retirement – but financial planning doesn’t stop there. Key Private Bank will help you identify the most strategic assets to draw your income from. And we will remain your partner, helping you balance that income and spending to ensure you’re living the life you’ve imagined.
