Retirement Investing: A New Approach


Zvi Bodie


Boston University - Department of Finance & Economics

February 2001

Boston University School of Management Working Paper No. 2001-03

Abstract:     
This paper proposes a new approach to investing for retirement that takes advantage of recent market innovations and advances in finance theory to improve the risk/reward opportunities available to individual investors before and after retirement. The approach introduces three new elements:

- It uses inflation-protected bonds to hedge a minimum standard of living after retirement.

- It takes account of a person's willingness to postpone retirement.

- It uses option "ladders" to lever growth in retirement income.
