Bonds Away! How Fixed Income Can Play an Integral Role in Any Retirement Strategy - Russell Wild

Unlike stocks, which date back only several hundred years, bonds go back many thousands. 

The first known bond was issued around 2400 BC in Nippur, Mesopotamia (today part of Iraq).

And arguably, for all those years – and into the present day -- bonds have been the retiree’s best friend. Bonds generate income, for sure – but they offer retirees more than that: They offer security. Thanks to bonds, your grandparents or great-grandparents may have been spared from selling apples on the street during the Great Depression.

But bond investing is tricky…most investment advisors agree that it can be more complex and difficult than investing in stocks. Bonds come in many flavors and colors…There are government bonds, corporate bonds, muni bonds, bonds of high credit quality, junk bonds, long-term bonds, short-term bonds, individual bonds, and thousands of bond mutual- and exchange-traded funds. How to choose? This webinar will present the essentials for building the fixed-income side of a retiree’s portfolio. 

In "Bonds Away! How Fixed Income Can Play an Integral Role in Any Retirement Strategy" by Russell Wild you will:

  1. Better understand what major role bonds should play in a retirement portfolio. Hint: It is not to produce income;
  2.  Learn what kinds of bonds belong – and which don’t belong – in retirees’ accounts;
  3. Know how to choose between individual bonds, bond ladders, bond mutual funds, and fixed-income ETFs;
  4. Discover the real risk of bonds that most underplay. And while at it, better understand what happened in 2022, a notably bad year for bonds;
  5. Find out the secrets to successful bond trading.
