Books on Retirement Saving/Investing

#209943

Postby Sparkling » March 25th, 2019, 12:01 am

Hello,

can someone suggest any book on retirement saving or planning please?
Any recommendations highly appreciated. Can be pretty basic, just to get started.

Wow, thank you very much for this topic. I even could not imagine that there are such books, I was reading only general business and investing books.

Are there any special books that describe retirement saving situation in Eastern Europe? Hungary, in particular?

The Intelligent Asset Allocator by William Bernstein in a really accessible introduction to the concepts of asset allocation and risk-adjusted returns.

Intelligent Asset Allocator by William Bernstein is very good, but even better is the more recent Rational Expectations from the same author.

I'd suggest checking out the free videos (typical 15mins each) on the Pension Craft website on YouTube. Ramin Nakisa explains things very well. He also produced a free booklet download.

https://pensioncraft.com/topic/how-to-c ... est-funds/

(link is half way down the page on the RHS under the picture of the book).

One of the best UK biased ones I've come across :-
Beyond The 4% Rule: The science of retirement portfolios that last a lifetime, Abraham Okusanya

Morningstar has an interesting set of articles for retirees:

one of which links to:
safe withdrawal rates (hint: more like 3% for UK retirees).

I can recommend the RESET book by David Sawyer.

A review here https://www.poundsandsense.com/review-r ... id-sawyer/

"RESET: How to Restart Your Life and Get F.U. Money: The Unconventional Early Retirement Plan for Midlife Careerists Who Want to Be Happy Paperback – 18 Aug 2018"

Worth looking at for links to other articles and books

I’m sure many here will scoff, but if you are younger, or prefer stories and general philosophy to hard facts (FWIW I like both) try “The Richest Man in Babylon” which is cheap to buy and also available as a free ebook if you google the title.
