When savers reach a certain point in their careers, retirement is close enough that they don’t want to do anything to jeopardize their no doubt diligent saving efforts. Obviously, these are men and women in the latter parts of their career, and at this point, having their savings and investments waiting for them upon retirement is of paramount importance.
This is the point where individuals tend to be more defensive with their investment allocations. As with anything, a client’s individual risk tolerance will determine the magnitude to which the factors of age and proximity to retirement can actually affect their allocation, but in general relative to someone who has the short term goal of accumulating, wealth protectors will be more defensive.
