“The Fix is In” in Fixed Income

October, 2014

There is an economic train coming down the tracks, and there are a lot of retirees who are directly in its path.  This train will impact the economic and market landscape for many years to come. Any investor planning on living on a fixed income in retirement should beware.

While the US economy has recovered from the financial crisis of 2008, the recovery has cost a giant mountain of debt. Most Americans correctly suspect that the government can’t continue to spend more than it receives in income (taxes) over an extended period of time. Eventually, someone has to bear this cost.

But here’s the bad news: only some Americans will have to pay for this. Savers who have assets invested in cash or fixed income investments will bear the brunt of this cost. Since retirees have historically accumulated and relied on these kinds of stable investments, they will be the group most adversely impacted.
