  5. 5. 3 The 3-Legged Stool A Broken Traditional Retirement Model Personal Savings Social Security Company Pensions Past retirees often enjoyed a combination of a company pension, a Social Security check, and their personal savings.

  8. 8. 6 So, if you made a $10,000 investment at age 29, with an 8% rate of return, it should grow to about $160,000 by age 65. $20k 38 47 56 65 $40k $80k $160k For example, the Rule of 72 tells us that an investment earning a constant 8% rate of return should double approximately every 9 years. The Rule of 72 It’s important to manage your rate of return and risk If you divide 72 by the rate of return being earned, you will obtain the approximate number of years required for your initial savings to double. The Rule of 72 is a mathematical concept that approximates the number of years it will take to double the principal at a constant rate of return compounded over time. All figures are for illustrative purposes only, and do not reflect the risks, expenses or charges associated with an actual investment. The rate of return of investments fluctuates over time and, as a result, the actual time it will take an investment to double in value cannot be predicted with any certainty. Results are rounded for illustrative purposes. Actual results in each case are slightly higher or lower.
  9. 9. 7 How many times will your money double? $10,000 $20,000 $20,000 $40,000 $10,000 $40,000 $10,000 $320,000 $80,000 $20,000 $20,000 $10,000 $80,000 $40,000 65 59 56 53 47 41 38 35 29 $160,000 AGE $5,000 $5,000 $5,000$5,000 4% 8%6% 12% Notice how a $5,000 investment at age 29 doubles more often as the rate of return increases. That’s exciting to think about. But consider the interest rate on your credit card. Is it 18%? Higher? The Rule of 72 can work against you just as powerfully as it can work for you. Debt management is still important. The Rule of 72 doesn’t consider taxes. Taxes can increase the amount of time it takes for money to double. Your financial professional can help you develop a strategy that considers the impact of taxes.4
  10. 10. 8 50% Loss $10,000$10,000 50% Gain 100% Gain $5,000 $7,500 The Impact of Losses It hurts more than you think If you lose 50% of $10,000, what rate of return does it take to get back to $10,000? A 50% gain only gets you back to $7,500. A 100% gain is required to fully recover a 50% loss.

You may be more or less insurance depending on any existing savings, assets, retirement funds and whether the purpose of the death benefit is to replace income or perhaps for estate planning. 3 In this hypothetical example, an 8% compounded rate of return is assumed on hypothetical monthly investments over different time periods. The example is for illustrative purposes only and does not represent any specific investment. It is unlikely that any one rate of return will be sustained over time. This example does not reflect any taxes, or fees and charges associated with any investment. If they had been applied, the period of time to reach a $1 million retirement goal would be longer. Also, keep in mind, that income taxes are due on any gains when withdrawn. 4 Tax and/or legal advice are not offered by World Financial Group, Inc., their affiliated companies or their independent associates.
