Retirement in the age of coronavirus

Marshall Rowe, managing director of Northern New England for The Colony Group in Concord, says investors should stick with their long-term investment plan and resist the urge to react to market volatility.

For some, the curveball they have been thrown by the coronavirus may require delaying retirement for a year or two. Rowe says that by deferring retirement for at least six months to a year, people can continue saving for retirement, allow time for their investments to recover and delay drawing on their assets.“That is an extremely powerful and impactful choice to make if they can make it,” he says.
