A Retirement Planning Model for Doctors

[By Staff Reporters]

What it is?

Age Banding is a model for retirement planning developed by Somnath Basu PhD MBA CFP™ that may provide a new approach to retirement needs.

How it works!

The model reduces errors in estimating expenses, provides an algorithm to calculate replacement ratio, allows easier incorporation of long term care insurance benefits and significantly reduces funding needs.

Example:

For example, rather than doing a simple ratio of expected future expenses as compared to current living expenses and lumping 30 to 40 years of retirement into one big event, Dr. Basu breaks down retirement age into various groups or “bands”. It is intuitive that the more active retirement years will be early on, and that more funds allocated to spending and enjoyment should be made for the beginning retirement years.

Assessment

The current investment environment of low interest rates does not favor traditional retirement advice of moving more funds into bonds because they are “safe” money.

So, coupled with Dr. Basu’s age banding approach, physicians might consider more dividend paying equities, in their portfolio, as an alternative [personal communication].
