I’ve always enjoyed numbers which is probably why I like the finance field as much as I do. this week I have been spending a lot of time using Morningstar’s Paltrak program and having a lot of fund studying the massive amount of data in this program. I look forward to sharing with you some of numbers in the weeks ahead. For now, here’s my articles from this past week:
- What rate of return should you assume for your retirement plan? I was inspired by some debates between Robb and Nelson about what rates of return to use for financial and retirement projections. Check out my conclusion.
- How the Pooled Registered Pension Plan should work. With the PRPP in preliminary stages, I offer my opinions on what is needed to make these plans work.
- Retire Healthy by eating right. Another article from a series of posts on how to retire healthy. Being healthy is just as important as being wealthy and happy.
