Pensionize Verb. 1. To convert money into income you can't outlive. 2. To create your own personal pension, a monthly income that lasts for the rest of your natural life. With the subpar performance of the markets, record-high personal debt levels, and shockingly low savings rates, it's clear that many Canadians expecting to retire in the next decade simply don't have a sufficient nest egg to ensure a worry-free retirement. Making matters worse, only about one-third of Canadians currently belong to a formal, or registered, pension plan; and even a large number of that "lucky third" will not retire with a guaranteed pension income. If you no longer have the time to wait and hope for your traditional investments to pay off, the answer is to "pensionize your nest egg" using the new technique of product allocation set out in this book. Pensionize Your Nest Egg explains how to Recognize if you really have a pension or just a tax-sheltered savings plan. Become informed about the new risks you and your nest egg face in retirement and why asset allocation, despite its value in the accumulation stage of life, is not sufficient to protect you and your money. Measure your retirement sustainability quotient (RSQ) and your Financial Legacy Value (FLV)-then choose a retirement income plan on the Retirement Income Frontier. Understand how product allocation differs from asset allocation, how to allocate your nest egg across three product silos, and learn about the new financial products that are available to protect against the new risks you face. Follow a seven-step process to close your Pension Income Gap and convert your retirement savings into a secure stream of lifetime income. Whether you do it yourself or work with a financial advisor, Pensionize Your Nest Egg gives you a simple plan to create a guaranteed retirement income-for life.

About the Book "There are innumerable books available that purport to help investors do a better job with their portfolios; however, few come close to Investiphobia in delivering on that promise. Here you won't find page after page of mind numbing tables, graphs and unrealistic advice but rather page after page of interesting, realistic and common (and not so common) sense advice. This is not a book for your book shelf; it's a book for you to read and enjoy. Follow its solid advice and your financial future will be well rewarded." Harold R. Evensky, CFP(r), AIF(r) President, Evensky and Katz "The field of investing is cluttered with far too many 'howto' books. Thankfully, Mr. Puckett's book is that uncommon book written for the common person, i.e., anybody who is not in the investment business." Jim Flinchum, CFP, CIMA President, Bay Capita l Advisors "In this engaging book, Mr. Puckett reinforces behavioral finance theory with insight, practical experience, and compassion. This book could become a classic." Ralph Rieves former editorial director of Dow Jones-Irwin "Investiphobia is, for investors, like having subtitles with a foreign film -an AH HA moment to understand what's going on! Paul has set forth a TO DO plan so investors can sort out emotions, understand industry pitfalls and develop a strategy to align their wealth with their wishes. An individual can step into the Producer & Director role and get the show rolling. No excuses any longer - Ready, Set, Action!" Caroline S. Oliver CFA CFP(r) Description We grow up imagining how happy we will be when we finally have money. But many people discover they have very strong fears relating to their money. Some are more than just concerned. Their fears have reached phobic levels. In a capitalist economy, one would think we would be very comfortable and open about money - and our feelings about our investments. Yet many people are not at all comfortable discussing their investments. They have fears that have negatively impacted their investment decisions. To prevent these fears from affecting their portfolio, they must be open to recognizing what they are, and then effectively address them. When fear is ignored or denied, it can become a phobia that will not only destroy your investment portfolio, it will also affect your life. The book includes a quiz to help you determine if you have Investiphobia. Many of the people suffering from Investiphobia are unaware of their condition which may be caused by one or more of eighteen separate fears. You do not need to learn them all, just the fears you find applicable to you. Some of these fears, like the fear of loss, are very common. Others, like the fear of not keeping up with the Joneses, may be new to you. You will learn to identify the many individual fears that may cause investiphobia with examples of the ways they may manifest in your investment life. And you will find suggestions on the best ways to address each fear with guidance on keeping these fears from affecting you and your portfolio. Finding Your Financial Life Guide is the second half of Investiphobia. It provides a comprehensive, easy-to-understand guide designed to give you the tools you need to find and choose the right advisor fo

Building Wealth with Silver

We are all using dangerous, outdated, old economic strategies to protect and grow our money in the so-called 'new economy.' Most of us don't even know it. Every economy is, in some sense, 'new.' However, applying the rules from an 'older' economy to a 'newer' one during times of transition is a recipe for financial ruin.Economic transitions have been around for centuries . . . the difference is that now they are worldwide in scope and affect everything rather than local in nature with limited affects.While you sleep at night, while you go to work each day, something insidious is actually stealing your financial future. It isn't anyone's fault really. There is a massive reallocation of wealth as we transition into the new economy.There are two sides to this story. Because of the changing rules of money, the greatest transfer of wealth in the nation and the world is now unfolding. Money is about to flow away from the financially uninformed and flow towards the financially well-informed in the years ahead.This is nothing new, really. Money has always worked this way. The good news is that average members of the public now have more ways than ever before to understand this process and to take appropriate action.I am sure you are aware of the rising price of gold that's been going on for almost 10 years now. Most recently, gold started climbing with even greater speed. History repeats itself again and again. Whenever governments start to dilute their money investors transfer their money into gold. Gold has intrinsic value and will always prevail in any economy.What most non-investors and investors -- including yourself -- probably you don't realize is that although gold is a great way to preserve your wealth, it's silver that could actually make you rich!The price of gold has already risen dramatically, but silver is just beginning its climb.Nine Reasons Why Silver is a Unique Wealth Building Instrument - Silver, like gold, has intrinsic value- Silver has been in a commodity bull cycle since 2000- Silver is a safe hedge against currency inflation- Silver is a security choice during times of financial crisis- Silver is rarer than gold- Silver is used in 90% of all electronics -- and its mostly non-renewable- Silver inventories are very low- Silver leasing -- the scam will be exposed soon- Silver investment markets are expanding thanks to the ChineseWhat You Will Learn From Building Wealth with SilverYou will discover why the Federal Reserve was created and why you and I have been kept in the dark about its true purpose. You will find out why the U.S. dollar is quietly being destroyed without fanfare and the reason this process is being publically denied and covered up. You will see why unemployment numbers, along with many other economic figures, are rigged, and how we're are being lied to about their true significance.The insights you get from the first few chapters alone can change your life. Even if you were to study at Harvard for five years -- which would cost you, by the way, over $95,000 -- you would not have the knowledge you need to get any closer to this kind of insider information.Learn why silver is the best investment opportunity right now.Get the facts on silver production and consumption, and all the details behind silver's projected five- to eight-fold increase over the next several months.
