Frazier Allen: Retirement Readiness Takes Getting in Step

 

F&M Investment Services - Raymond James - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – When Fidelity Investments asked couples how much they think they will need to save for retirement to maintain their current lifestyle, 48% had “no idea.”

Forty-seven percent disagreed on the amount needed (the disagreement highest among those closest to retirement). In some ways, that’s not surprising – many couples disagree on financial and lifestyle matters long before they’ve stopped working. But while adjustments (hopefully) can be made and differences resolved, things can become more difficult in retirement.

Many couples don't agree on when, where or how they're going to retire.

Shareholders seek to prevent Fidelity Investments from indirectly contributing to genocide

 

fidelity-investmentsI tend to ignore voting on issues where I receive proxy materials in the mail for my 401k retirement accounts. However, Fidelity Investments has a proposal pending to prohibit fund managers from investing in companies contributing to genocide, or crimes against humanity. Obviously, I am not in favor of contributing to genocide in Sudan, or any place else.

This is valiant attempt by some shareholders to influence a huge corporation’s policies. This is not a theoretical proposal, you see Fidelity was one of the largest holders of PetroChina, which through its parent company, the China National Petroleum Company, is providing funding that the Sudanese government uses to conduct its genocide in Darfur.
