Retirement Readiness


Program produced by XPX Chicago.

Retirement Readiness 

2020 was exceptionally volatile for the investment markets. With little warning, we were thrown into a global health pandemic, bringing global economies to a standstill. As a result, the markets went from all-time highs into bear market territory in record time, with segments of the markets losing 30-40% in just weeks.

Then, just as quickly, the markets staged an impressive recovery all the way to all-time highs — leaving investors bewildered and wondering what just happened.

It’s with all of this in mind that we will be holding a webinar to discuss Retirement Readiness. Specifically designed for investors and business owners who are approaching retirement or recently retired, this webinar will address…

  • The surprising elements of retirement that are often overlooked
  • How to create a vision for your retired years and achieve that vision
  • Considerations for a portfolio that addresses your needs
  • Sticking to your strategic wealth management plan during market volatility
