You have more than five years until retirement. That may seem like a long time, but your retirement may also last for many years—possibly 30 or more.
You'll need substantial assets to generate the income you want. Your portfolio, including any assets in tax-deferred retirement savings accounts, probably should include plenty of long-term growth opportunities (stocks).
While investments with higher return potential also include a higher degree of volatility, at this stage in your financial life you have more time to compensate for short-term losses with long-term gains. Over time, proper asset allocation and investment diversification can help you maximize your return potential while reducing overall portfolio volatility. Of course, diversification cannot assure a profit or protect against loss in a declining market.
