Retirement FAIL with Greg Sullivan


Retirement FAIL with Greg Sullivan

It’s not the technical stuff that keeps people from failing in retirement, life events keep people from making it through their golden years.

Greg Sullivan says personal, emotional and relational things that happen in life that can throw your retirement. He says making portfolios based on 8 years of cash needs, and some incremental changes along the way to retirement, helps weather the storm of any market cycle.

He also talks with Joe about Long Term Care Insurance and a chapter called “The Nest that Won’t Empty”.

About our sponsor, BUZZ Index

Proudly sponsored by Buzz indexes (BUZ on the NASDAQ)

Ever wonder if there were a way to capitalize on all of that online chatter made by millions of investors on social media? Well, your wait is over, because now advances in Artificial Intelligence and Natural Language Processing technologies are at your fingertips…. even if you personally don’t use social media! The BUZZ Index, licensed to an exchange-traded fund and trading under ticker symbol BUZ, provides investors with a portfolio of securities that delivers a basket of large-cap U.S. equities exhibiting the highest degree of positive investor sentiment. No surveys. No guessing. BUZ only tracks what’s volunteered – and if you ARE online, you know that a lot of information is volunteered: millions of posts, comments and blogs are analyzed each month!

Here’s how it works: First, BUZZ targets the most mentioned large-cap U.S. stocks across the Social Media landscape. The more active the conversation, the greater the reliability of the BUZZ.

Each of the most-mentioned stocks is then given an insight score based on BUZZ’s proprietary analytics and the 75 stocks with the most Bullish scores are included in the Index. Each month the BUZZ is tracked to capture the latest Big Data driven insights and then the 75 companies with the most Bullish scores are selected, positioning BUZZ to capture the highest return potential.
