At West Coast Financial Services, our concern is to always help retirees allocate their assets to match their risk tolerance. This is vital because more often than not retirees are exposed to more risk than they are comfortable with or aware of, so we help fix that problem.
Below you will find The Financial Risk Cycle, which shows each age group’s calculated risk tolerance level. Note, these risk levels can vary slightly, but this information is in most cases a preferred guide for assessing financial risk.
Early Career [100% Risk] 20-30 Years Old
Career [75% Risk] 30-50 Years Old
Peak Accumulation [50-75% Risk] 50-60 Years Old
Pre-Retirement [35-50% Risk] 60-65 Years Old
Retirement [15-35% Risk] 65 Years Old
Transfer [0% Risk] 80 Years & Above
