Expert Retirement and Financial Advisor Mark Kinney Discusses the Benefits of a Bond Ladder Investment Strategy
Seasoned retirement and financial strategist, Mark Kinney, highlights how to set up a bond ladder and why it can make sense for some investors.
Lee, Massachusetts— December 15, 2016—Founding partner of Toole, Kinney & Company, Inc., Mark Kinney, CFP®, published a new article entitled, “Spread Out the Wealth with a Bond Ladder for Income & Liquidity.” In the article, he discusses how a bond ladder can provide income to an investor while allowing access to their funds at pre-determined intervals.
Mark writes, “The saying to not put all your eggs in one basket applies to investing after retirement, as well as before. Imagine if Sarah put the entire $100,000 in a 10-year bond. Think about how your life has changed in the last 10 years. With bond laddering, you have access to part of your investment every few years, and can still take advantage of higher yields on longer-term bonds with part of your investments.”
Kinney continues, “While bond ladders can be a savvy investment tool to generate income while allowing you to access your funds at pre-determined intervals, they are just one of many options available for conservative investors seeking to generate income.”
