How the calculation process works

It all starts with a unique planning philosophy


Our strategies first focus on a creating a sustainable income. We use the most recent actuarial tables to determine one’s average mortality, and then make sure retirement income lasts beyond this age. Then we optimize projected cash flows by comparing three competing withdrawal strategies to determine which accounts should be drawn down first and which are better left last. After that, we generate a list of key factors to take into consideration.
