There are plenty of ways to evaluate a retirement plan. (For instance,
here’s a paper from Wade Pfau, Joe Tomlinson, and Steve Vernon discussing 8 different metrics for evaluating retirement spending/portfolio strategies.) By far the most common though is “probability of running out of money.”
But as Dirk Cotton discusses in a recent article, that metric leaves out a ton of useful information. In addition, it’s questionable how accurate such a metric can be, for any strategy that includes stocks.
