Save Smarter: Options Beyond Your 401(K)

Everyone knows that it's important to save for the future ...

... and if you're like the majority of Americans, you count on your employer's 401(k) plan to handle your retirement savings.

But should you really put all your eggs in one basket? Studies show that by diversifying your retirement savings across a mix of different asset types—both taxable and non-taxable—you may minimize taxes and maximize income in retirement.

That's why I'm encouraging you to download “Retirement Savings Options You Must Consider Beyond Your 401(k),” our NEW guide that gives you side-by-side comparisons that clearly illustrate the impact of asset diversification on your retirement savings.

You'll learn:

  • Five things you can do right now to set yourself up to benefit from asset diversification.
  • Pros, cons and tax implications of retirement saving options and which ones may make the most sense for you.
  • Why retiring with a mix of taxable and non-taxable sources of income may give you a distinct advantage over saving exclusively in your 401(k).

Remember, it's not about saving MORE—it's about saving smarter. Download this FREE guide now and see for yourself why where you save is just as important as how much you save ... and why it's critical to consider retirement savings options beyond your 401(k).
