What does Retire Rich offer?

Retire Rich offers THREE solid & tested strategies to build potential retirement wealth. Each of these strategies comprises of a ready set of equity, debt and gold mutual funds, cherry-picked based on the S.M.A.R.T Score process with the sole aim of securing a potentially wealthy retirement.

The first strategy is for the young 'high risk-high reward' investors who want to play the market and beat it by a significant margin. This is for investors who are under 45 years in age and can afford to take adventurous decisions for their retirement approaching in about next 15-20 years. It would ideally comprise of 90% equity, 7.5% debt and 2.5% gold.

The second strategy is for the cautious investors about 45-60 years of age and nearing retirement in a few years. A time when you cannot afford to play too safe because you have got only a few years left to save. Yet you cannot play too risky because you would not be able to recoup your losses in time. This strategy would ideally comprise of 70% equity, 25% debt and 5% gold.

The third strategy is for investors above 60 years of age, who are probably retired and struggling. Adjusting to the new financial situation with no active income and limited savings in the bank, with soaring daily expenses, it takes superb calculation and strategy to make the whole retired life work like magic. This strategy would comprise of 35% equity, 60% debt and 5% gold.
