FINANCIAL PLANNING TERMS...Reverse Dollar Cost Averaging

What is reverse dollar cost averaging?

Once an investor retires and begins to receive systematic withdrawals from their retirement portfolio, these periodic declines in the price of these shares, now being sold to cover expenses, becomes detrimental. Retirees look to generate a certain amount of dollars to pay expenses so when the share prices of the investments in the portfolio decline, the retiree has to sell more shares to raise the dollars needed.
