Experts tackle questions about retirement

The opinions expressed by columnists are their own and do not necessarily represent the views of
DALLAS (BP)--Fluctuating markets, concerns about inflation or other questions about where the economy is headed create confusion about making plans for retirement.

To answer some common retirement-planning questions in today's economy, GuideStone Financial Resources assembled a panel of experts to relay counsel for those who are in retirement, those who are about to retire and those who are years away. The discussion can be viewed at

"The process of retiring in the 21st century has become as diverse as our culture," said John R. Jones, chief operating officer at GuideStone, an Dallas-based entity of the Southern Baptist Convention.

"With advances in technology and medicine, people are living longer, healthier and more active lives," Jones said. "Our goal at GuideStone is to prepare our participants for retirement as best we can, no matter what their definition of retirement might be."

Members of the panel, moderated by GuideStone President O.S. Hawkins, are:

-- Ray Perryman, economist and president of The Perryman Group.

-- Jean Walshe, CFA, CAIA, executive director and client adviser, J.P. Morgan Asset Management.


-- J. Ray Nixon Jr., executive director and large capital value equity portfolio manager for Barrow, Hanley, Mewhinney & Strauss.

-- Dallas Salisbury, president and chief executive officer of the Employee Benefit Research Institute.

The panelists, from their vantage points on retirement in a question-and answer format, voiced recommendations drawn from statistical information on such topics as whether retirees can still have the retirement about which they may have dreamed; how investors can be adequately prepared; and potential changes in the retirement and economic landscape.
