Investing for your retirement is a lot like planning a mission to Mars: it seems like it’s impossibly far away, and there are all kinds of potential dangers and unknown threats along the way. There’s an abundance of misinformation about what your retirement destination should be like and the best way to get there. And once you arrive, you have to figure out how to survive on nothing but the supplies you brought with you.

So, how are you going to Future Proof your investments? You’ll need more than just a balanced portfolio to sustain you through the retirement years. In Future Proof Investing, mission planners Kelly Gilbert and Steve Kitchen show you how to dodge the pitfalls of current strategies and ensure a future for you and your family that is both attainable and sustainable.
