If you've been following this feed, you've noticed that we are of late fielding questions from readers, one of whom got a nifty little retirement plan from Maksim Netrebov yesterday. Today, financial advisor Evan Powers, who likes Maksim's approach, thoughtfully offers a deep dive on one aspect of the retirement planning process he had addressed - namely, whether or not to convert a traditional IRA to a Roth.
The piece is of relevance to most pre-retirees and makes clear which populations should consider such a move and how to pull it off for maximum financial benefit. Here's Evan's article.
And as this Q&A segment gains momentum, a reader asks financial advisor Eric Nelson why he should settle for an index fund rather than turn his assets over to top stock pickers on a list from Morningstar. In a nutshell, Eric retorts that there is a more reliable way to generate excess returns while mitigating risk. Here's Eric's article .
