Retirement Strategies for HNW Clients in a Low Yield Environment

In today’s low-yield environment, the traditional 60/40 retirement strategy no longer works.

Charging a 1% AUM fee on low-yielding bonds provides clients with less after-tax, after-advisory fee returns for owning these assets than the advisor actually makes for simply managing them!

In order to attract and retain HNW clients in an era of low bond yields, advisors will need more tax-efficient strategies to make up for the loss of yield in the bond markets.
