Product description

Review

Wade Pfau, an authority in the field of retirement income planning, provides a whirlwind tour of capital markets, annuity & insurance products and illustrates how "risk pooling" can optimize the decumulation phase of the lifecycle. This book should be required reading for all misguided financial advisors who believe that a diversified portfolio of stocks & bonds is all that's needed to maximize the probability of financial success during the golden years of life.
MOSHE A. MILEVSKY, PHD, Professor of Finance, York University, Toronto


Wade Pfau is among the most trusted names in personal finance. He's clear, fair, and bases his advice on solid research. You never have to get trapped by a financial huckster again. Wade's books and blogs are your reality check. Mine, too!
JANE BRYANT QUINN, personal finance columnist, and author of How to Make Your Money Last: The Indispensable Retirement Guide


A must-read for anybody who wants to truly grasp the concepts of retirement income solutions and the role of annuities in building a retirement income portfolio. Pfau goes into detail about explaining the various types of annuities, their pros and cons, and how they compare to other retirement income solutions. Once again, Pfau comes through with a very helpful and insightful book that will help many people develop effective retirement income solutions.
STEVE VERNON, research scholar, Stanford Center on Longevity, and author of Retirement Game-Changers: Strategies for a Healthy, Financially Secure, and Fulfilling Long Life


Dr. Wade Pfau brings a level of honesty, intellectual rigor and impartiality seldom witnessed in financial product analysis. Coinciding with the publication of "Safety-First Retirement Planning"--almost to the day--Americans will for the first time have a larger percent of our population over 65, than under 5 years old. Collectively, we are not prepared for the societal burdens that comes with this longevity success. Dr. Pfau, more than any other contemporary academic, has articulated a vision for individual savers to take control of their retirement longevity risks. Dr. Pfau simultaneously proves that the risk is today and with careful planning, the risk can be managed.
WADE A. DOKKEN, President, WealthVest


Dr. Pfau's book takes a needed look at a key issue in retirement: what products will support a retiree's income strategy. Without prejudice and with impartiality, we are provided readable research that supports solid retirement planning ideas.
STEVE PARRISH, JD, RICP(R), ChFC(R), CLU(R), RHU(R), AEP(R), Co-Director, The American College New York Life Center for Retirement Income


It is becoming imperative to include annuities in retirement portfolios as life expectancies expand and sources of secure income disappear. Wade's thought leadership on the topic is bringing critical insights to advisors and investors, enabling them to leverage annuities in the financial plan to realize better retirement outcomes.
DAVID LAU, Founder & CEO of DPL Financial Partners
