What you can do to ensure a comfortable retirement

How do Australian workers really feel about retirement? The answers might surprise you.

Having recently released their 2018 report on this topic, State Street’s portfolio strategist Thomas Reif joins host Lucy Dean to unpack the findings of the report, specifically those relating to Australian retirement income spends and ETF’s.

Thomas shared the things retirees wish they had known and gotten involved with sooner, the type of income cut that one can expect when entering retirement and also how any why an individual’s living costs alter in the later stages of their lives.

They also discuss the benefits of ETFs, how the current competitive market is impacting fees, and the moves that you can make to ensure a more comfortable retirement.


Thanks Thomas, for sharing your insights with the Nest Egg podcast team!
