Build a retirement safety ladder

A bond ladder can protect you from falling stock markets in retirement.



Online only.



Protect yourself from stock market slumps in retirement by keeping five years’ worth of living expenses invested in a “ladder” of safe bonds, with one-fifth of your holdings maturing each year.

That way, you can live off the money from your maturing bonds during a market downturn and you won’t end up decimating your portfolio by cashing in stocks when they’re down.

  1. Any recommendation(s) on how to start this?


  2. I have heard about ISAs, particularly the Roth IRA which appears to be a lot better compared to other available options. But still, I feel everyone is different and hence everyone would have their own choices to make. What is important however is that some form of a retirement plan is established.
