If you are in your twenties or even in your early thirties, you are in a very good place right now to begin saving for your future retirement. The strategy here is to adopt a disciplinary approach with long-term objectives in mind. Previously, many North Carolinians and, indeed, many other American across the country, had always left it late in their lives to make the necessary preparations for the day they had to retire.
Now, if you are in your forties, or even early fifties, believe it or not, it is still not too late to salvage a secure and profitable retirement income for you and your spouse (if you are married). If you are single and without dependents (part of a growing movement of professional men and women who have chosen to remain single and devote themselves to their careers and/or personal interests), you are in an even better position.
North Carolinians, in particular can utilize the diversified options of retirement plans in Charlotte by also enrolling the services and wise counsel of an expert in forward-thinking financial planning strategies which have at its core the purchase of an entire bouquet of savings and investment instruments. This is a prudent and fiduciary response to the current volatility of financial markets within the State, across the nation and, indeed, globally.
It is important that your financial planner and retirement planning specialist is highly qualified, experienced (more than twenty years industry experience is ideal) and has the necessary accreditations which enables a trusting environment of ongoing consultations, planning and investment on your behalf. For instance, in North Carolina, a retirement planner with accreditation in and qualification as AIF (accredited investment fiduciary) and RIA (registered investment advisor), respectively, along with the highest educational qualifications (ideally an MBA), would be perfect.
