"Mastering Retirement: The Bucket Strategy for Melbourne's Future Retirees"

As Melbourne's leading financial advisor specialising in retirement planning, I'm here to guide you through a strategic approach known as the Bucket Strategy. This method is tailored to ensure that Melbourne retirees enjoy a comfortable and secure future.

Understanding the Bucket Strategy

Retirement is a phase of life that demands careful financial planning. The Bucket Strategy simplifies this by categorising your investments into three distinct 'buckets' based on when you'll need the funds. This approach helps in balancing risk and providing a stable income stream during retirement.

The Immediate Needs Bucket

The first bucket addresses your short-term needs. It consists of highly liquid assets such as cash and short-term bonds, ensuring that you have ready access to funds without being affected by market fluctuations.

The Intermediate Horizon Bucket

For the medium term, the second bucket is crucial. It includes a mix of assets like bonds and stable stocks, offering a blend of safety and moderate growth to cover expenses in the next 5 to 10 years.

The Long-Term Growth Bucket

The third bucket is for your long-term needs, focusing on growth through a diversified portfolio of stocks and other growth-oriented investments. This is where we can take advantage of the market's potential for higher returns, given the extended time horizon.
