Empowering Clients to Start Saving for Retirement

Share Article

The Department of Labor’s new regulations are designed to provide greater protection to investors making decisions about retirement accounts. Peter Recchia, who holds the Accredited Investment Fiduciary (AIF) designation, offers his first rule for saving for retirement: get started now.

When clients tell Peter Recchia that they’re not “rich enough” to have a financial advisor, he tells them that the first rule of accumulating wealth is to save.

Recchia stresses the importance of saving now—even if it’s only a small amount.

“I can’t tell you how many clients have told me that they wish they started saving sooner,” said Recchia. “In this low-interest rate return environment, many people think they should just save cash. But I encourage clients to participate in the market in a conservative way. Index funds are low-cost and track the market. If the market does well, as it has for the past several years, you benefit.

“We respect the fact that there is a group of investors who are more comfortable entering in their own financial information,” said Recchia. “They may not need a lot of retirement investment advice early on, other than to get started. For them, simple index funds work well. They are low-cost and give the client a chance to participate broadly in the market.

“As their income increases and finances become more complicated we have an ability to service them, providing retirement and investment advice that is in their best interest,” Recchia said.

Serving clients along the continuum of their income-earning years is a key element of 4Wealth Financial Group’s approach to serving their clients and acting in their clients’ best interest.

“The new Department of Labor rules that will go into effect in 2017 makes anyone who provides retirement investment advice a fiduciary, which means the advisor is required by law to act in their client’s best interest,” said Recchia. “As an Accredited Investment Fiduciary, I’ve been committed to that requirement all along.”
