Feeling like you are late to starting your retirement savings is a common sentiment. People are not generally as far behind as they think. Second career doctors have already taken care of some things that a doctor just coming out of residency has not, like owning a car, home, and raising children. Your highest earnings of your career are typically in your 50s. So, when you are earning more, it's easier to save more. This episode will help a later saver know what to prioritize and to understand some of the benefits of their age. The truth is that no doctor is ever really more than 10 years away from financial independence. You can do this and we can help. https://www.whitecoatinvestor.com/behind-in-the-retirement-savings-game/
I estimate that 80% of doctors need, want, and should use a financial advisor and/or an investment manager. Some investment gurus such as Dr. William Bernstein think my estimate is way too low. At any rate, if you want to use an advisor temporarily or for your entire life, there is no reason to feel guilty about it—just make sure you are getting good advice at a fair price.
