One listener felt a lot of my podcasts are geared toward the younger physician. She really wanted to know more about investing as she nears retirement. She had questions like is a portfolio 100% in index funds appropriate for a retiree? What about alternative strategies - bond ladders, dividend paying stocks, using options as an insurance policy, and those types of things. A common misconception is that someone nearing retirement should do something dramatically different than a 25 year old. Bear in mind a typical 55 year old still has a 30 year investing career. The right investments for a 55 year old are exactly the same as the ones for a 25 year old. But perhaps the mix will be a little different.
