Total Income Equity Return
TIER STRATEGY from EUKLES WEALTH MANAGEMENT, LLC
Your portfolio will be divided into three different TIERs. The three TIERs are designed with distinct time frames and your financial planning goals in mind. Each TIER has a target rate of return that was determined through thorough research, conducted with the goal of providing a realistic approach to retirement income planning.
Using high-quality corporate bonds, government and agency bonds, we strive to remove as much risk of default as possible from TIER 1. Assuming each bond is held to maturity, without default, the outcome of your TIER 1 portfolio is predetermined.
Income and Growth
To determine your allocation to TIER 2, we calculate the present value of your income distribution stream for the second 10 years of your retirement, using our target yield as the discount rate. The TIER 2 portion of your portfolio is then afforded a ten year time frame to in order to achieve its stated objective.
At the end of the first 10 years of your retirement, we shift your TIER 2 portfolio to TIER 1, assembling a new bond ladder to match your retirement income needs for the second 10 years of your retirement.
The allocation to the equity component then, by program definition, will have twenty years to achieve its target return. The portfolio is then designed with the goal of growing the equity portion of your retirement portfolio in line with the historical average return of the S&P 500.
Upon the depletion of TIER 2 in year 20 of your retirement, TIER 3 is reallocated to TIER 1, with the goal of providing the necessary income stream for the remainder of your retirement.

Stock investing involves risk including loss of principal. Bonds are subject to market and interest rate risk if sold prior to maturity. Bond values will decline as interest rates rise and bonds are subject to availability and change in price. The market value of corporate bonds will fluctuate, and if the bond is sold prior to maturity, the investor's yield may differ from the advertised yield. Government bonds and Treasury bills are guaranteed by the US government as to the timely payment of principal and interest and, if held to maturity, offer a fixed rate of return and fixed principal value. High yield/junk bonds (grade BB or below) are not investment grade securities, and are subject to higher interest rate, credit, and liquidity risks than those graded BBB and above. They generally should be part of a diversified portfolio for sophisticated investors. No strategy assures success or protects against loss.
