The Great Retirement: Insights From Wealth Management Expert, Derek Myron

The latest issue of the San Diego Business Journal magazine's Wealth Management section explores the challenges faced by Baby Boomers, the generation born between 1946 and 1964, who currently represent 28% of the U.S. population. With retirement rates rapidly accelerating, approximately 75 million Baby Boomers are expected to retire by 2030, marking a significant shift in the demographic landscape.

Top Concerns for Retirement Planning

As Baby Boomers approach or enter retirement, ensuring financial stability throughout their golden years becomes a paramount concern. Factors such as longer life expectancy, rising healthcare costs, and market volatility contribute to the complexity of retirement decisions. Navigating the financial path during retirement presents challenges that require careful consideration and expertise.

The Largest Intergenerational Wealth Transfer in History

In addition to retirement planning, Baby Boomers face the task of transferring wealth to their children, marking the largest intergenerational transfer of wealth in history. However, despite the magnitude of this responsibility, a majority of U.S. households lack sufficient plans in place to effectively manage this transition. Many individuals overlook the opportunity to seek guidance from wealth managers and financial planners who possess the expertise to structure comprehensive plans that facilitate the growth and management of wealth.

Let’s review Derek’s insights.

What potential challenges can arise during the transfer of a family business, and what are the associated complexities? When passing on a business, what are the primary goals to consider: fairness or equality?

Derek Myron explains the complexities associated with passing on a family business: "A family business can be extremely complicated to pass on and continue running after the death of the primary owner. This often arises due to family dynamics, disproportionate involvement in the business, and various other factors... Should it be passed on to those involved, benefiting them more than others? Or should it be divided equally... The right solution depends on the facts, circumstances, and preferences of the business and family. Proper business succession planning is crucial..."

What are common issues/problems heirs may encounter that wealth managers can help with?

Derek Myron sheds light on the issues heirs may face and how wealth managers can assist: "A good estate plan allows heirs to inherit wealth with help and support in how to manage it... Certain assets can pose challenges for heirs... Having a competent, experienced, and qualified financial advisor will help assess whether your current estate plan aligns with your goals and make necessary modifications as needed. They can also assist in setting up business succession plans, facilitating the sale of directly managed real estate assets, and transitioning into syndicated deals where management is delegated... without proper planning, wealth can become burdensome."

What actions can be taken to Mitigate Tax Exposure in a Trust/Estate Plan?

Derek Myron provides insight on actions that can be taken to mitigate tax exposure in a trust/estate plan. He explains: "At present, gift tax and estate tax exemptions are around $13 million per individual and around $26 million per married couple... the exemptions will sunset on Jan. 1, 2026, back down to the level pre TCJA; adjusted for inflation... anyone with assets expected to exceed these estate tax exemption levels in 2026... should consider the design and construction of their current wealth transfer plans."
