An Investing Road Map for Midcareer Accumulators
Key financial priorities for investors in the peak earnings years of their 40s and 50s.
Investment advice abounds for people just starting out in their careers, as well as for those who are getting ready to retire.
But midcareer investors, people in their 40s and 50s? Not so much. Workers at this life stage may be at their peak earnings level, and therefore may have more complex financial needs than their younger counterparts. Moreover, midcareer investors are frequently juggling the competing financial demands of college and retirement savings. That's no small task, especially when you stop to consider the big price tags associated with each, as well as the complexities of calibrating two separate pots of money with two different time horizons.
