As you close in on the 10 years before retirement, or even perhaps the thought of dialing back full-time work, it isn’t always intuitive to understand how much annual spending your savings can support, or how to structure your portfolio in a manner that will support your needs but also maintain an appropriate level of risk exposure based on your needs and time horizon."
