Our investing journey is not Horse Race or Rat Race where we compete against others. 


No! It is our investment Marathon Race where we set our own pace and compete against ourselves to win our own race.

Embracing Three Taps Solutions to Retirement Income For Life Model

































Uncle8888's Wealth's Formula:

Wealth = Asset Value + Cash Flow

Where Sustainable Cash Flow = Tap 1 + Tap 2 + Tap 3

and volatile market pricing of Asset Value becoming less significant.



Since Tap No 3 is enough to supply the liquidity needs; Tap No 1 will remain shut.

    Quite the same as Three Taps Solution. We have both reliable and volatile source of passive income stream and computed with god margin of safety not to run out of money before we run out of time.


    The problem can be alleviated by setting aside up to ten years’ worth of income at the inception of retirement. I address this problem with an approach called the Bucket Plan, which segments a retiree’s investible assets into three categories, or buckets.

    Here is the breakdown:

    The “Now” bucket is where the client’s operating cash, emergency funds and first-year retirement income reside. It will typically be a safe and liquid account such as a bank savings account, money market fund, or CD. These are the funds on which the client is willing to forgo a rate of return, in order to keep them safe and liquid. The amount allocated to the Now bucket will vary based on the clients assets and sources of income, but typically you would want to see no less than 12 months of living expenses here.

    The “Soon” bucket has enough assets to cover up to ten years’ worth of income for the retiree. The Soon bucket is invested conservatively with little or no market risk. That way, we know we have ten years covered going into the plan regardless of what the stock market does.

    The “Later” bucket funds income, and hopefully an increase in income, when the Soon bucket is exhausted. By then, the Later bucket has been invested uninterruptedly for at least 10 years. We reload another round of income into the Soon bucket, and the process starts all over again. The Later bucket is the appropriate place for capital market participation.
