Asset Management

Oxford University Press

Labor income is an asset, and for young investors the value of labor income usually dominates the rest of their financial holdings. An investor’s mix of assets changes as her labor income evolves over her life cycle, and an investor whose labor income is bond-like should reduce his holdings of equities as retirement approaches. While economic theory suggests that annuities are ideal for retirees, few hold them.

Keywords:   labor income, human capital, retirement savings, life-cycle model, life-cycle asset allocation, consumption, intergenerational equality, health-care risk, pension underfunding, 4% rule, annuities
