Longer lives, longer retirements, new challenges

Americans are living longer. And with those longer lives come longer retirements – which means many investors are worried about having enough for all those years. Others still are overconfident—feeling they are making the right investment decisions, even though their current investments will not yield the income they expect. One the most common obstacles: holding too much cash.
