Many investors have seen the recent bear market wreak havoc on their investment accounts, making them feel helpless as their retirement dreams become nightmares. But help is on the way. The Bogleheads’ Guide to Retirement Planning ($24.95, Wiley, October 2009), is filled with clear, concise and easy-to-understand advice on a wide range of retirement planning topics from the different types of retirement accounts and how to decide which is right for an individual’s situation to essential estate planning and gifting strategies.
The Bogleheads’ Guide to Retirement Planning is truly a collaborative effort, written by more than 40 Bogleheads – a group of like-minded individual investors who follow the general investment and business beliefs of John C. Bogle, founder and former CEO of the Vanguard Group. The book is filled with practical advice on retirement planning, delivered not from investing and retirement planning experts, but everyday people who have self-educated themselves to a professional level over the years. Richard A. Ferri, CFA®, a key member of the Bogleheads brain trust, along with co-editors Laura F. Dogu, the “Queen of the Bogleheads,” Taylor Larimore, the “King of the Bogleheads,” and Mel Lindaur, the “Prince of the Bogleheads,” organized the project, recruited writers, and compile the manuscript over the internet from the over 40 Bogleheads using collaborative software provided by Google.
“Whatever your current financial situation, you have to continue to strive for a viable retirement plan by finding the most effective ways to save, the best accounts in which to save, and the right amount to save,” says Ferri, CEO of investment firm Portfolio Solutions. “That is the advice we the Bogleheads community is proving in this unique book. The chapters offer honest, in-depth, person to person advice, written by individual investors for individual investors.”
Divided into six comprehensive parts and filled with practical tips and anecdotes—including some pearls of wisdom from Bogle himself—The Bogleheads' Guide to Retirement Planning gives readers advice about:
· The different types of savings accounts and retirement plans, from the individual retirement arrangement (IRA) to single-premium immediate annuities (SPIAs)
- The types of taxes that can affect retirement planning
- Managing and funding retirement accounts
- Efficient withdrawal strategies that could help maintain the desired retirement lifestyle
- The important part disability and health insurance programs play in a retirement plan
- Addresses essential estate planning and gifting issues
“It's one thing to save for retirement, but another thing to plan for it,” says Ferri. “With The Bogleheads' Guide to Retirement Planning, investors will discover exactly what it takes to secure their financial future today.”
