Social Security and Retirement: 7 Things Everyone Should Know

No comments

Given that a recent GOBankingRates survey found that 23% of Americans have nothing saved for retirement, it’s clear that many will be relying on Social Security to fund their golden years. And even if you do have retirement savings, you’ll want to be strategic about taking your benefits in a way that’s optimal for you.

Important: 10 Reasons You Should Claim Social Security Early

To help you best understand Social Security and clear up any misconceptions about the benefits system, GOBankingRates spoke with financial experts and asked them what they want everyone to know about Social Security. Here’s what they said.

You Shouldn’t Rely on Social Security To Fund Your Whole Retirement

If you’re expecting Social Security to fully fund your retirement, you could be in for a rude awakening. The average monthly benefit is $1,542.22 as of June 2022.

“Social Security today only covers a portion of the average American’s expected income needs in retirement,” said Henry Yoshida, CFP and CEO of Rocket Dollar, an investment platform that allows individual investors to use tax-advantaged funds for alternative investing.

If you’re in that 23% of Americans who have nothing saved, start saving ASAP so that you’ll be in better financial standing when you reach retirement age.

Delaying Taking Your Benefits Can Pay Off

You can start to collect Social Security benefits at age 62, but it may pay off for you to wait.

“If you are able to delay taking Social Security after eligibility, you can significantly increase the income [compared to] that minimum amount at the earliest possible access date,” Yoshida said. “For example, if you take Social Security at 62 and your income is $2,364, if you can wait to access Social Security until age 70, the income is $4,194.”

However, Waiting Until Age 70 Isn’t Always the Best Option

It’s true that if you delay taking Social Security until age 70, the amount you receive will be larger than if you start receiving your benefits before, but this doesn’t mean this is always the best option.

“You need to evaluate how that decision impacts your asset balances over time,” said Emily Casey Rassam, senior financial planner at Archer Investment Management. “If you look at the complete picture, which includes a projection of your investment portfolio balance over time, it may make more sense for you to take Social Security earlier. Often, if you delay Social Security until age 70, you are drawing down assets significantly, and that can hurt your long-term asset trajectory. Like all financial decisions, a comprehensive financial plan can tell the whole story and help you make decisions with all of the relevant data organized.”

65 Isn’t the Full Retirement Age for Everyone

When deciding when to collect Social Security, it’s important to understand what you’ll receive at what age.

“Age 62 is the earliest you can take benefits. For every year an individual delays taking benefits beyond their full retirement age — which varies depending on when you were born — through age 70, the annual benefit increases by 8%,” said Richard Freeman, senior director and wealth advisor at Round Table Wealth Management. “Conversely, for every year an individual takes benefits earlier than their full retirement age, their annual benefit is decreased 8%.”

Freeman said that his clients often assume their full retirement age is 65, but this is not always the case. If you were born in 1943 or later, your full retirement age ranges from 66 to 67.

Find Out: Understanding Social Security Retirement Age and Why It Matters

Your Benefits Are Calculated Based on Your 35 Highest-Earning Years

It’s important to understand how the Social Security Administration calculates your benefit amount.

“The primary insurance amount — or amount you get based on your own record — is based on the worker’s highest 35 years of earnings,” said Herman “Tommy” Thompson, Jr., a certified financial planner with Innovative Financial Group in Atlanta. “Most people think it’s based on your last five years. I’ve been talking about Social Security for 18 years and every time I say this, someone is surprised!”

Your Spouse (or Former Spouse) Can Impact Your Benefit Amount

Thompson said it’s important to understand how benefits are calculated when you are the surviving spouse.

“When a spouse dies, the higher Social Security amount remains for the [surviving] spouse, assuming they were married for at least nine months,” he said. “Not half. Not both. The higher remains. Widows and widowers can claim as early as age 60.”

And if you are divorced, you may be able to claim your ex-spouse’s benefits.

“A divorcee can still claim on an ex-spouse’s record if: (1) The individual is at least 62, (2) they were married for at least 10 years, (3) the individual is currently unmarried and (4) the ex-spouse is receiving a benefit or has been divorced for at least two years,” Thompson said.

Social Security (Probably) Won’t Run Out

You’ve likely seen headlines about Social Security running out in 2035 — but this is a worst-case scenario and not something that should cause you to panic. However, you may need to adjust your retirement plans depending on how the gap in funding will be bridged.

“The death of Social Security has been greatly exaggerated,” said Paul Tyler of Nassau Financial Group in Hartford, Connecticut. “If Congress doesn’t add additional funds to the trust, payroll taxes on current workers will continue to support the program. However, the taxes would not fund 100% of the expected benefits. The gap could be closed by imposing means testing, deferring full retirement ages beyond 67 or increasing taxes on benefits. Any of these modifications would require many people to adjust their retirement plans.”

Episode 157: Let the Guaranty Fund Genie Out of the Bottle With Harry Stout and Bruce Saul

No comments

This episode is for producers only. One of the biggest pain points in explaining annuities is describing the nature of the product guarantees. Most state laws prohibit agents or carriers from proactively discussing state guarantee associations with clients during the sales process. However, in an age of Google and best interest standards, does this rule still make sense. Today we have two guests who recently wrote a story for ThinkAdvisor on this exact topic.

652
00:11:04,672 –> 00:11:05,362
[harry_n_stout]: yeah

653
00:11:04,838 –> 00:11:08,043

[bruce_h__saul]: oh

655
00:11:08,504 –> 00:11:09,626

[harry_n_stout]: yeah

657
00:11:10,727 –> 00:11:13,252
[ramsey_d_smith]: a good thing to do here is
to talk about you know what’s

658
00:11:13,282 –> 00:11:13,972
[harry_n_stout]: yeah

659
00:11:13,312 –> 00:11:18,356
[ramsey_d_smith]: different about each of each of the
various so the back stops and different

660
00:11:18,322 –> 00:11:18,583
[harry_n_stout]: yeah

661
00:11:18,396 –> 00:11:19,398
[ramsey_d_smith]: parts of the financial services

[ramsey_d_smith]: industry all have not just different dollar
limitations

664
00:11:22,680 –> 00:11:22,984
[paul_tyler]: oh

665
00:11:23,164 –> 00:11:25,768
[ramsey_d_smith]: but they have different sources

666
00:11:25,702 –> 00:11:25,968
[harry_n_stout]: oh

667
00:11:25,849 –> 00:11:26,530
[ramsey_d_smith]: and backing like

668
00:11:26,940 –> 00:11:27,200
[paul_tyler]: oh

669
00:11:27,151 –> 00:11:28,653
[ramsey_d_smith]: how are they how are they different

00:11:28,552 –> 00:11:28,753
[harry_n_stout]: yeah

671
00:11:29,455 –> 00:11:33,243
[ramsey_d_smith]: one of the one of the inherent
risks with the discussion is

672
00:11:33,232 –> 00:11:33,535
[harry_n_stout]: yeah

673
00:11:33,343 –> 00:11:33,584
[ramsey_d_smith]: that

674
00:11:35,152 –> 00:11:35,459
[harry_n_stout]: yeah

675
00:11:35,207 –> 00:11:37,312
[ramsey_d_smith]: either either a producer might

676
00:11:37,052 –> 00:11:37,620
[paul_tyler]: yeah

677
00:11:38,524 –> 00:11:40,707
[ramsey_d_smith]: might not know what the differences are

678
00:11:40,702 –> 00:11:40,887
[harry_n_stout]: yeah

679
00:11:40,727 –> 00:11:43,893
[ramsey_d_smith]: and even if they do they may
not convey the differences

680
00:11:44,076 –> 00:11:44,382
[bruce_h__saul]: oh

681
00:11:44,554 –> 00:11:45,816
[ramsey_d_smith]: as as well as they might

682
00:11:45,816 –> 00:11:46,020
[bruce_h__saul]: oh

683
00:11:46,497 –> 00:11:47,739
[ramsey_d_smith]: to a to a consumer so

684
00:11:48,562 –> 00:11:49,972

[harry_n_stout]: yeah

690
00:11:59,362 –> 00:12:03,188

[harry_n_stout]: ye

814
00:14:05,718 –> 00:14:09,123

[harry_n_stout]: yeah

816
00:14:09,183 –> 00:14:11,447

856
00:14:59,763 –> 00:14:59,943

[bruce_h__saul]: the states have made good

871
00:15:24,412 –> 00:15:25,102
[harry_n_stout]: yeah

872
00:15:24,573 –> 00:15:25,634
[bruce_h__saul]: progress in the

873
00:15:25,636 –> 00:15:25,657
[harry_n_stout]: a

874
00:15:25,674 –> 00:15:30,102
[bruce_h__saul]: past ten years in gradually reacting to
the model law

875
00:15:30,247 –> 00:15:30,452
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

876
00:15:30,302 –> 00:15:30,783
[bruce_h__saul]: and actually

877
00:15:31,124 –> 00:15:31,305
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

878
00:15:31,484 –> 00:15:35,010
[bruce_h__saul]: bringing those levels into compliance with the
law the model

879
00:15:34,814 –> 00:15:35,503
[ramsey_d_smith]: ye

880
00:15:35,050 –> 00:15:39,257
[bruce_h__saul]: law but there are still some differences
some states are higher some

881
00:15:39,202 –> 00:15:39,489
[harry_n_stout]: oh

882
00:15:39,337 –> 00:15:41,561
[bruce_h__saul]: are lower so it’s not uniform but
it’s

883
00:15:41,753 –> 00:15:41,774
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

884
00:15:42,082 –> 00:15:42,410
[harry_n_stout]: oh

885
00:15:42,542 –> 00:15:44,185
[bruce_h__saul]: it’s a bit of a patchwork but

886
00:15:44,324 –> 00:15:44,344
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

887
00:15:44,546 –> 00:15:47,191
[bruce_h__saul]: it has improved pretty significant

888
00:15:46,942 –> 00:15:47,662
[harry_n_stout]: yeah

889
00:15:47,211 –> 00:15:48,334
[bruce_h__saul]: ly in the past ten years

890
00:15:48,203 –> 00:15:48,224
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

891
00:15:48,990 –> 00:15:50,160
[paul_tyler]: oh

892
00:15:49,773 –> 00:15:53,319
[harry_n_stout]: and paul one of the things for
me looking at it as i as i

893
00:15:53,659 –> 00:15:54,801
[harry_n_stout]: looked at this from a consumer

894
00:15:54,597 –> 00:15:55,206
[bruce_h__saul]: right

895
00:15:54,881 –> 00:16:00,431
[harry_n_stout]: standpoint and many producers obviously they’re not
allowed to mention nor do they mention the

896
00:16:00,471 –> 00:16:05,036
[harry_n_stout]: existence guarantee funds as some sort of
inducement to buy the product

897
00:16:04,814 –> 00:16:06,014
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

898
00:16:05,737 –> 00:16:06,879
[harry_n_stout]: yet when the consumer

899
00:16:06,958 –> 00:16:07,181
[ramsey_d_smith]: yes

900
00:16:06,979 –> 00:16:11,966
[harry_n_stout]: gets delivery of their contract depending upon
the state there’s going to be

901
00:16:11,984 –> 00:16:12,265
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

902
00:16:12,106 –> 00:16:14,691
[harry_n_stout]: information about the guarantee fund that l
of a sudden

903
00:16:14,700 –> 00:16:14,821
[paul_tyler]: ah

904
00:16:14,771 –> 00:16:16,874
[harry_n_stout]: shows up and that’s you know that’s

905
00:16:16,989 –> 00:16:17,109
[paul_tyler]: yea

906
00:16:17,054 –> 00:16:17,495
[harry_n_stout]: added to the

907
00:16:17,520 –> 00:16:17,781
[paul_tyler]: yeah

908
00:16:17,535 –> 00:16:19,739
[harry_n_stout]: contract at that time so

909
00:16:20,033 –> 00:16:20,054
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

910
00:16:20,300 –> 00:16:23,766
[harry_n_stout]: when you when you go thou that
you say to yourself you know what is

911
00:16:24,547 –> 00:16:25,288
[harry_n_stout]: what’s happening

912
00:16:24,900 –> 00:16:25,060
[paul_tyler]: yeah

913
00:16:25,388 –> 00:16:29,255
[harry_n_stout]: here and where did this come from
and why didn’t you talk to me about

914
00:16:29,315 –> 00:16:34,225
[harry_n_stout]: this so it seems to be a
very convoluted process that

915
00:16:34,214 –> 00:16:34,234
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

916
00:16:34,426 –> 00:16:37,579
[harry_n_stout]: is not as focused on the consumer
as it could be

917
00:16:39,691 –> 00:16:41,634
[paul_tyler]: yeah now somebody who’s

918
00:16:41,513 –> 00:16:41,534
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

919
00:16:41,774 –> 00:16:43,838
[paul_tyler]: outside the industry would say oh my
gosh you know

920
00:16:44,106 –> 00:16:44,976
[bruce_h__saul]: oh

921
00:16:44,238 –> 00:16:47,704
[paul_tyler]: harry bruce this is a mess you’ve
got fifty different states with all

922
00:16:47,872 –> 00:16:48,233
[harry_n_stout]: oh

923
00:16:48,185 –> 00:16:49,527
[paul_tyler]: the but it actually

924
00:16:49,454 –> 00:16:49,756
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

925
00:16:49,607 –> 00:16:50,809
[paul_tyler]: worked remarkably well

926
00:16:50,826 –> 00:16:51,155
[bruce_h__saul]: oh

927
00:16:51,250 –> 00:16:51,951
[paul_tyler]: like you know

928
00:16:51,854 –> 00:16:51,996
[ramsey_d_smith]: ye

929
00:16:52,051 –> 00:16:52,732
[paul_tyler]: yes there have been

930
00:16:52,882 –> 00:16:53,204
[harry_n_stout]: yeah

931
00:16:53,554 –> 00:16:57,701
[paul_tyler]: just as in the case of you
know thrifts or savings banks you know

932
00:16:57,764 –> 00:16:58,025
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

933
00:16:58,101 –> 00:17:00,485
[paul_tyler]: going to receivership we’ve had insurance cares
but

934
00:17:01,072 –> 00:17:01,942
[harry_n_stout]: yeah

935
00:17:01,106 –> 00:17:04,452
[paul_tyler]: i think the track record is pretty
good ou know state by state right am

936
00:17:04,532 –> 00:17:05,394
[paul_tyler]: i am i wrong

937
00:17:05,782 –> 00:17:06,532
[harry_n_stout]: yeah

938
00:17:06,055 –> 00:17:07,678
[paul_tyler]: i think its function well

939
00:17:09,143 –> 00:17:09,244
[harry_n_stout]: eh

940
00:17:10,527 –> 00:17:10,567
[bruce_h__saul]: i

941
00:17:10,544 –> 00:17:10,867
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

942
00:17:10,647 –> 00:17:11,287
[bruce_h__saul]: agree with that

943
00:17:11,594 –> 00:17:11,895
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

944
00:17:12,008 –> 00:17:13,169
[bruce_h__saul]: there are different schools of thought

945
00:17:13,170 –> 00:17:13,492
[paul_tyler]: oh

946
00:17:13,469 –> 00:17:14,971
[bruce_h__saul]: paul that’s a factual question but

947
00:17:15,074 –> 00:17:16,004
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

948
00:17:15,231 –> 00:17:15,471

00:17:16,613 –> 00:17:16,634
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

951
00:17:16,692 –> 00:17:17,893
[bruce_h__saul]: as happens there are

952
00:17:18,060 –> 00:17:18,990
[paul_tyler]: oh

953
00:17:18,234 –> 00:17:24,342
[bruce_h__saul]: different views i will tell you that
there have been some federal government studies and

954
00:17:24,402 –> 00:17:26,045
[bruce_h__saul]: reports and some private

955
00:17:25,874 –> 00:17:26,116
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

956
00:17:26,105 –> 00:17:28,990
[bruce_h__saul]: industry studies that have been critical

957
00:17:29,788 –> 00:17:29,890
[harry_n_stout]: ah

958
00:17:29,880 –> 00:17:30,141
[paul_tyler]: oh

959
00:17:30,072 –> 00:17:30,973
[bruce_h__saul]: and as usually

960
00:17:31,004 –> 00:17:31,246
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

961
00:17:31,033 –> 00:17:31,875
[bruce_h__saul]: these these types

962
00:17:31,882 –> 00:17:32,662
[harry_n_stout]: yeah

963
00:17:31,955 –> 00:17:33,998

[harry_n_stout]: ah

966
00:17:34,259 –> 00:17:37,043
[bruce_h__saul]: after a well known insolvency occurs

967
00:17:38,032 –> 00:17:38,436
[harry_n_stout]: yeah

968
00:17:38,712 –> 00:17:38,732
[paul_tyler]: h

969
00:17:39,157 –> 00:17:41,781
[bruce_h__saul]: some criticisms include concerned that the system

00:17:41,834 –> 00:17:42,674
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

971
00:17:42,543 –> 00:17:43,444
[bruce_h__saul]: may not be adequately

972
00:17:43,110 –> 00:17:43,333
[paul_tyler]: yes

973
00:17:43,524 –> 00:17:46,069
[bruce_h__saul]: funded if there was a major or
series

974
00:17:45,653 –> 00:17:45,674
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

975
00:17:46,269 –> 00:17:49,474

00:17:55,514 –> 00:17:55,777
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

982
00:17:55,642 –> 00:17:56,302

1089
00:19:41,477 –> 00:19:47,067
[harry_n_stout]: the potential for those companies to be
in precarious financial shape and the industry was

1244
00:22:58,541 –> 00:23:03,630
[ramsey_d_smith]: all those things are part of the
discussion and and without sort of being able

1245
00:23:03,710 –> 00:23:05,933
[ramsey_d_smith]: to sort of articulate those differences in

1246
00:23:05,992 –> 00:23:06,424
[harry_n_stout]: ye

1247
00:23:06,074 –> 00:23:09,459
[ramsey_d_smith]: very sort of meaningful way i can
i can see i can see why there’s

1248
00:23:10,521 –> 00:23:14,338
[ramsey_d_smith]: reticence right there’s reticence to sort of
to

1249
00:23:15,742 –> 00:23:16,852
[harry_n_stout]: yeah

1250
00:23:15,781 –> 00:23:19,147
[ramsey_d_smith]: put right to to to extend you

1251
00:23:19,356 –> 00:23:20,106
[bruce_h__saul]: oh

1252
00:23:19,508 –> 00:23:21,812
[ramsey_d_smith]: any kind of warranty over what it
might look like without

1253
00:23:21,999 –> 00:23:22,566
[bruce_h__saul]: hm

1254
00:23:23,028 –> 00:23:23,594

[harry_n_stout]: yes

1256
00:23:24,868 –> 00:23:28,474
[bruce_h__saul]: yeah ramsey i think that’s a point
very well taken in one of the public

1257
00:23:28,282 –> 00:23:29,002
[harry_n_stout]: yeah

1258
00:23:28,514 –> 00:23:29,876
[bruce_h__saul]: policy rationals harry

00:23:29,894 –> 00:23:30,136
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

1260
00:23:30,056 –> 00:23:32,681
[bruce_h__saul]: articulated very well

00:23:33,480 –> 00:23:33,742
[paul_tyler]: yes

1262
00:23:33,502 –> 00:23:33,728
[harry_n_stout]: yeah

1263
00:23:33,742 –> 00:23:34,383
[bruce_h__saul]: one of the points

1264
00:23:34,105 –> 00:23:34,268
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

1265
00:23:34,484 –> 00:23:34,944
[bruce_h__saul]: but the other

1266
00:23:34,950 –> 00:23:35,232
[paul_tyler]: yeah

1267
00:23:35,105 –> 00:23:36,707
[bruce_h__saul]: that i’ve heard raised

1268
00:23:37,222 –> 00:23:37,942
[harry_n_stout]: yeah

1269
00:23:37,549 –> 00:23:38,090
[bruce_h__saul]: and i think it’s

1270
00:23:37,994 –> 00:23:38,214
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

1271
00:23:38,170 –> 00:23:38,190
[bruce_h__saul]: a

1272
00:23:38,199 –> 00:23:38,220
[paul_tyler]: m

1273
00:23:38,851 –> 00:23:39,191
[bruce_h__saul]: important

1274
00:23:39,052 –> 00:23:39,315
[harry_n_stout]: yeah

1275
00:23:39,272 –> 00:23:40,914
[bruce_h__saul]: point to focus on is

1276
00:23:41,229 –> 00:23:41,250
[paul_tyler]: m

1277
00:23:42,277 –> 00:23:43,218
[bruce_h__saul]: the differences among the

1278
00:23:43,163 –> 00:23:43,304
[ramsey_d_smith]: yah

1279
00:23:43,238 –> 00:23:43,979
[bruce_h__saul]: various systems

1280
00:23:43,762 –> 00:23:44,046
[harry_n_stout]: yeah

1281
00:23:44,320 –> 00:23:44,460
[bruce_h__saul]: and

1282
00:23:45,292 –> 00:23:45,681
[harry_n_stout]: yeah

1283
00:23:45,557 –> 00:23:45,639
[ramsey_d_smith]: me

1284
00:23:45,762 –> 00:23:49,609
[bruce_h__saul]: comparing a banker get a deposit with
other products

1285
00:23:49,192 –> 00:23:50,921
[harry_n_stout]: oh oh

1286
00:23:50,771 –> 00:23:53,175
[bruce_h__saul]: it is sometimes the case that there’s
more complexity

1287
00:23:54,600 –> 00:23:55,530
[paul_tyler]: yeah

1288
00:23:54,837 –> 00:23:56,861
[bruce_h__saul]: with annuity and insurance

1289
00:23:56,534 –> 00:23:57,674
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

1290
00:23:56,901 –> 00:23:57,762
[bruce_h__saul]: products relatively

1291
00:23:57,480 –> 00:23:57,702
[paul_tyler]: yeah

1292
00:23:57,842 –> 00:23:58,243
[bruce_h__saul]: speaking

1293
00:23:57,914 –> 00:23:58,196
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

1294
00:23:59,122 –> 00:23:59,992
[harry_n_stout]: yeah

1295
00:23:59,425 –> 00:24:01,931
[bruce_h__saul]: a i still however come back to

1296
00:24:01,883 –> 00:24:01,904
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

1297
00:24:03,876 –> 00:24:08,561
[bruce_h__saul]: take in case with a uh a
fixed annuity of fifty thousand dollar

1298
00:24:08,692 –> 00:24:09,352
[harry_n_stout]: yeah

1299
00:24:09,162 –> 00:24:09,883
[bruce_h__saul]: account value

1300
00:24:10,852 –> 00:24:12,052
[harry_n_stout]: oh

1301
00:24:10,883 –> 00:24:11,086
[ramsey_d_smith]: m oh

1302
00:24:11,946 –> 00:24:16,313
[bruce_h__saul]: a life insurance policy a hundred thousand
dollars whether it’s term or permanent

1303
00:24:16,080 –> 00:24:16,303
[paul_tyler]: yeah

1304
00:24:17,122 –> 00:24:18,142
[harry_n_stout]: oh

1305
00:24:17,796 –> 00:24:22,764
[bruce_h__saul]: those amounts are clearly under the state
coverage limits

1306
00:24:23,392 –> 00:24:24,472
[harry_n_stout]: oh

1307
00:24:23,906 –> 00:24:26,378
[bruce_h__saul]: and i i don’t think that those
are so complex that

1308
00:24:26,242 –> 00:24:27,022
[harry_n_stout]: yeah

1309
00:24:26,559 –> 00:24:30,717
[bruce_h__saul]: it’s difficult or straining to have a
conversation about them

1310
00:24:31,672 –> 00:24:31,979
[harry_n_stout]: yeah

1311
00:24:32,102 –> 00:24:33,136
[bruce_h__saul]: uh or

1312
00:24:33,112 –> 00:24:33,982
[harry_n_stout]: oh

1313
00:24:33,216 –> 00:24:33,557
[bruce_h__saul]: complex

1314
00:24:33,375 –> 00:24:33,455
[ramsey_d_smith]: ay

1315
00:24:33,658 –> 00:24:35,243
[bruce_h__saul]: products take a structured

1316
00:24:35,032 –> 00:24:35,501
[harry_n_stout]: oh

1317
00:24:35,303 –> 00:24:42,661
[bruce_h__saul]: settlement annuity may be a group annuity
those are more difficult to explain but those

1318
00:24:42,741 –> 00:24:44,264
[bruce_h__saul]: aren’t the sort of

1319
00:24:44,554 –> 00:24:44,635
[harry_n_stout]: ah

1320
00:24:44,825 –> 00:24:47,269
[bruce_h__saul]: bread and butter type sales and in
the business

1321
00:24:48,142 –> 00:24:48,384
[harry_n_stout]: oh

1322
00:24:48,371 –> 00:24:48,912
[bruce_h__saul]: so i acknowledge

1323
00:24:48,801 –> 00:24:48,882
[paul_tyler]: no

1324
00:24:48,992 –> 00:24:49,653
[bruce_h__saul]: the point but

1325
00:24:49,844 –> 00:24:50,064
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

1326
00:24:50,033 –> 00:24:51,496
[bruce_h__saul]: i don’t know i keep ming

1327
00:24:51,564 –> 00:24:51,625
[harry_n_stout]: ah

1328
00:24:51,576 –> 00:24:53,962
[bruce_h__saul]: back to the wording of the statute

1329
00:24:54,031 –> 00:24:54,052
[harry_n_stout]: m

1330
00:24:54,063 –> 00:24:54,403
[bruce_h__saul]: is so

1331
00:24:55,827 –> 00:24:55,847
[harry_n_stout]: i

1332
00:24:55,906 –> 00:24:56,447
[bruce_h__saul]: prohibitive

1333
00:24:57,022 –> 00:24:58,642
[harry_n_stout]: yeah

1334
00:24:57,448 –> 00:25:00,871
[bruce_h__saul]: that not even be able to respond
to a question is a very tough standard

1335
00:25:01,111 –> 00:25:03,013
[bruce_h__saul]: i think in today’s consumer

1336
00:25:03,804 –> 00:25:04,244
[ramsey_d_smith]: understood

1337
00:25:03,954 –> 00:25:04,634
[bruce_h__saul]: uh yeah

1338
00:25:05,170 –> 00:25:05,331
[paul_tyler]: yeah

1339
00:25:05,426 –> 00:25:10,715
[ramsey_d_smith]: so i guess my my question is
sort of if were something to happen what

1340
00:25:10,755 –> 00:25:13,219
[ramsey_d_smith]: would be the experience in the case
of f d i c like

1341
00:25:13,792 –> 00:25:14,752
[harry_n_stout]: oh

1342
00:25:13,860 –> 00:25:16,044
[ramsey_d_smith]: the next day like you just don’t
know it france

1343
00:25:16,004 –> 00:25:16,105
[harry_n_stout]: oh

1344
00:25:16,605 –> 00:25:17,627
[ramsey_d_smith]: the u s government steps

1345
00:25:17,512 –> 00:25:17,754
[harry_n_stout]: oh

1346
00:25:17,727 –> 00:25:19,790
[ramsey_d_smith]: in right what does the experience

1347
00:25:19,620 –> 00:25:20,520
[paul_tyler]: oh

1348
00:25:19,850 –> 00:25:22,875
[ramsey_d_smith]: look like i mean you ran you
said you were you had a management role

1349
00:25:22,915 –> 00:25:24,498
[ramsey_d_smith]: in two different two different funds so

1350
00:25:24,678 –> 00:25:24,698
[bruce_h__saul]: h

1351
00:25:25,239 –> 00:25:25,440
[ramsey_d_smith]: um

1352
00:25:25,365 –> 00:25:25,386
[bruce_h__saul]: m

1353
00:25:25,960 –> 00:25:26,061
[ramsey_d_smith]: like

1354
00:25:26,152 –> 00:25:26,172
[harry_n_stout]: o

1355
00:25:26,181 –> 00:25:26,682
[ramsey_d_smith]: what is the

1356
00:25:27,142 –> 00:25:27,385
[harry_n_stout]: oh

1357
00:25:27,303 –> 00:25:29,125
[ramsey_d_smith]: what is the experience of the

1358
00:25:29,064 –> 00:25:29,246
[harry_n_stout]: ah

1359
00:25:29,206 –> 00:25:31,849
[ramsey_d_smith]: person you know if somebody if

1360
00:25:31,897 –> 00:25:31,999
[harry_n_stout]: ah

1361
00:25:31,909 –> 00:25:33,732
[ramsey_d_smith]: somebody is has a policy

1362
00:25:33,502 –> 00:25:34,252
[harry_n_stout]: yeah

1363
00:25:33,792 –> 00:25:35,194
[ramsey_d_smith]: that that ultimately

1364
00:25:34,912 –> 00:25:35,076
[harry_n_stout]: ye

1365
00:25:35,274 –> 00:25:38,339
[ramsey_d_smith]: ends up being sort of backed by
the guarantee fund what is the what is

1366
00:25:38,400 –> 00:25:41,204
[ramsey_d_smith]: the experience typical experience they would have
in terms of when

1367
00:25:41,220 –> 00:25:41,441
[paul_tyler]: oh

1368
00:25:41,224 –> 00:25:42,006
[ramsey_d_smith]: they would get their money

1369
00:25:41,812 –> 00:25:43,342
[harry_n_stout]: yeah

1370
00:25:42,587 –> 00:25:47,395
[ramsey_d_smith]: to get their money back like is
it is it measured minutes hour days

1371
00:25:47,101 –> 00:25:47,736
[bruce_h__saul]: hm

1372
00:25:47,515 –> 00:25:47,775
[ramsey_d_smith]: weeks

1373
00:25:47,833 –> 00:25:47,955
[paul_tyler]: as

1374
00:25:47,896 –> 00:25:50,099
[ramsey_d_smith]: months what does that what does that
look like

1375
00:25:50,032 –> 00:25:52,312
[harry_n_stout]: oh

1376
00:25:50,119 –> 00:25:53,666
[ramsey_d_smith]: because that’s an important part of sort
of the differentiation there

1377
00:25:53,544 –> 00:25:53,564
[harry_n_stout]: m

1378
00:25:53,987 –> 00:25:54,149
[bruce_h__saul]: yeah

1379
00:25:54,082 –> 00:25:54,446
[harry_n_stout]: oh

1380
00:25:54,227 –> 00:25:56,731
[ramsey_d_smith]: and just as a matter of setting
expect now seting expectation

1381
00:25:56,452 –> 00:25:57,352
[harry_n_stout]: yeah

1382
00:25:56,791 –> 00:25:57,532
[ramsey_d_smith]: s in the right place

1383
00:25:57,806 –> 00:25:58,006
[bruce_h__saul]: right

1384
00:25:57,892 –> 00:25:58,216
[harry_n_stout]: yeah

1385
00:25:58,247 –> 00:26:00,350
[bruce_h__saul]: right yeah the experience is going to
be

1386
00:26:01,590 –> 00:26:02,340
[paul_tyler]: yeah

1387
00:26:01,642 –> 00:26:02,332
[harry_n_stout]: yeah

1388
00:26:02,534 –> 00:26:03,796
[bruce_h__saul]: along these lines and of course it

1389
00:26:03,794 –> 00:26:03,814
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

1390
00:26:03,816 –> 00:26:05,699
[bruce_h__saul]: will depend on the complexity of the
of

1391
00:26:05,723 –> 00:26:05,744
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

1392
00:26:05,779 –> 00:26:06,320
[bruce_h__saul]: the company

1393
00:26:06,224 –> 00:26:06,485
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

1394
00:26:06,380 –> 00:26:08,403
[bruce_h__saul]: that failed in the complexity insolvency

1395
00:26:08,894 –> 00:26:09,382
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

1396
00:26:08,932 –> 00:26:09,300
[harry_n_stout]: oh

1397
00:26:09,205 –> 00:26:10,627
[bruce_h__saul]: but there’s whole you

1398
00:26:10,634 –> 00:26:10,895
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

1399
00:26:10,687 –> 00:26:12,190
[bruce_h__saul]: know kind of industry that’s

1400
00:26:13,004 –> 00:26:13,166
[ramsey_d_smith]: ye

1401
00:26:13,252 –> 00:26:14,093
[bruce_h__saul]: established to

1402
00:26:14,842 –> 00:26:15,532
[harry_n_stout]: yeah

1403
00:26:14,914 –> 00:26:16,737
[bruce_h__saul]: deal with these insolvancies when they happen

1404
00:26:16,560 –> 00:26:16,782
[paul_tyler]: oh

1405
00:26:17,264 –> 00:26:17,628
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

1406
00:26:17,619 –> 00:26:23,469
[bruce_h__saul]: so the consumer will learn about the
insolvency from the company or the receiver

1407
00:26:24,232 –> 00:26:24,674
[harry_n_stout]: oh

1408
00:26:24,631 –> 00:26:25,593
[bruce_h__saul]: and there’s consternation

1409
00:26:25,540 –> 00:26:25,762
[harry_n_stout]: yeah

1410
00:26:26,154 –> 00:26:29,500
[bruce_h__saul]: uh but you know here’ll be some
communication about the plan

1411
00:26:29,483 –> 00:26:29,504
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

1412
00:26:29,600 –> 00:26:32,104
[bruce_h__saul]: and typically especially for a relatively

1413
00:26:32,384 –> 00:26:32,711
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

1414
00:26:32,766 –> 00:26:33,707
[bruce_h__saul]: simple insolvancy

1415
00:26:33,704 –> 00:26:34,775
[ramsey_d_smith]: ye ah

1416
00:26:34,829 –> 00:26:36,692
[bruce_h__saul]: the associations arrange with

1417
00:26:36,734 –> 00:26:37,664
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

1418
00:26:36,752 –> 00:26:38,896
[bruce_h__saul]: no ga if it covers more than
one state

1419
00:26:38,963 –> 00:26:38,984
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

1420
00:26:38,996 –> 00:26:40,999
[bruce_h__saul]: arrange for another carrier to come in
and pick up the

1421
00:26:40,950 –> 00:26:43,800
[paul_tyler]: oh

1422
00:26:41,039 –> 00:26:41,360
[bruce_h__saul]: business

1423
00:26:41,264 –> 00:26:41,530
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

1424
00:26:42,582 –> 00:26:42,862
[bruce_h__saul]: so there’s

1425
00:26:42,712 –> 00:26:43,257
[harry_n_stout]: oh

1426
00:26:42,882 –> 00:26:43,483
[bruce_h__saul]: going to be at least

1427
00:26:43,535 –> 00:26:43,616
[ramsey_d_smith]: ah

1428
00:26:43,564 –> 00:26:45,126
[bruce_h__saul]: the delay of plaining

1429
00:26:45,047 –> 00:26:45,210
[paul_tyler]: wait

1430
00:26:45,166 –> 00:26:50,452
[bruce_h__saul]: what’s going on and remember this is
under a state court proceeding so it’s not

1431
00:26:50,294 –> 00:26:50,314
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

1432
00:26:51,173 –> 00:26:52,114
[bruce_h__saul]: immediate turn around

1433
00:26:51,893 –> 00:26:51,914
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

1434
00:26:53,296 –> 00:26:53,536
[bruce_h__saul]: um

1435
00:26:53,513 –> 00:26:53,534
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

1436
00:26:54,157 –> 00:26:54,538
[bruce_h__saul]: so it’s going

1437
00:26:54,494 –> 00:26:54,616
[harry_n_stout]: ah

1438
00:26:54,558 –> 00:26:56,541
[bruce_h__saul]: to vary but you know i think

1439
00:26:56,482 –> 00:26:56,586
[paul_tyler]: what

1440
00:26:56,882 –> 00:26:59,827
[bruce_h__saul]: if you look at some of these
larger insolvencies that are complicated

1441
00:26:59,433 –> 00:26:59,514
[paul_tyler]: oh

1442
00:26:59,927 –> 00:27:01,229
[bruce_h__saul]: it can be months

1443
00:27:01,184 –> 00:27:01,844
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

1444
00:27:01,309 –> 00:27:04,194
[bruce_h__saul]: or years before there’s full resolution other
cases

1445
00:27:03,870 –> 00:27:04,319
[paul_tyler]: oh

1446
00:27:04,414 –> 00:27:04,995
[bruce_h__saul]: it’s you

1447
00:27:04,973 –> 00:27:04,994
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

1448
00:27:05,035 –> 00:27:06,158
[bruce_h__saul]: know not not that log

1449
00:27:05,974 –> 00:27:06,136
[harry_n_stout]: yeah

1450
00:27:06,259 –> 00:27:07,061
[bruce_h__saul]: but it’s not

1451
00:27:07,095 –> 00:27:07,259
[harry_n_stout]: okay

1452
00:27:07,141 –> 00:27:07,803
[bruce_h__saul]: an immediate turn

1453
00:27:07,703 –> 00:27:07,724
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

1454
00:27:07,843 –> 00:27:08,084
[bruce_h__saul]: around

1455
00:27:09,052 –> 00:27:09,133
[paul_tyler]: ah

1456
00:27:09,392 –> 00:27:11,255
[harry_n_stout]: and ramsey one other thought i’d add
to you

1457
00:27:11,262 –> 00:27:11,282
[paul_tyler]: a

1458
00:27:11,336 –> 00:27:14,020
[harry_n_stout]: is even in the case of f
d i c coverage if

1459
00:27:13,964 –> 00:27:14,210
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

1460
00:27:14,080 –> 00:27:14,421
[harry_n_stout]: you get

1461
00:27:14,448 –> 00:27:15,486
[bruce_h__saul]: oh

1462
00:27:14,561 –> 00:27:15,342
[harry_n_stout]: people with large

1463
00:27:15,284 –> 00:27:15,445
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

1464
00:27:15,402 –> 00:27:17,806
[harry_n_stout]: account balances that are that

1465
00:27:17,842 –> 00:27:17,984
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

1466
00:27:17,866 –> 00:27:17,967
[harry_n_stout]: are

1467
00:27:18,434 –> 00:27:18,654
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

1468
00:27:18,467 –> 00:27:18,968
[harry_n_stout]: if you will

1469
00:27:18,996 –> 00:27:19,238
[bruce_h__saul]: oh

1470
00:27:19,129 –> 00:27:22,614
[harry_n_stout]: beyond the f d i c coverage
it’s an issue and i think

1471
00:27:22,486 –> 00:27:22,608
[bruce_h__saul]: right

1472
00:27:22,675 –> 00:27:22,755
[harry_n_stout]: the

1473
00:27:22,777 –> 00:27:22,817
[ramsey_d_smith]: on

1474
00:27:22,875 –> 00:27:26,741
[harry_n_stout]: same thing applies in the case of
insurance and solvencies i mean i think

1475
00:27:27,105 –> 00:27:27,126
[bruce_h__saul]: m

1476
00:27:27,182 –> 00:27:30,688
[harry_n_stout]: and bruce correct me if i’m wrong
here but my experience

1477
00:27:30,704 –> 00:27:31,065
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

1478
00:27:30,748 –> 00:27:32,411
[harry_n_stout]: is the typically the

1479
00:27:32,392 –> 00:27:32,573
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

1480
00:27:32,431 –> 00:27:36,077
[harry_n_stout]: administrator do everything possible to make sure
that claims within

1481
00:27:36,044 –> 00:27:37,034
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

1482
00:27:36,137 –> 00:27:40,825
[harry_n_stout]: the limits are paid and cash flows
as quickly as possible they do their best

1483
00:27:40,905 –> 00:27:43,389
[harry_n_stout]: to do that but if there are
individuals

1484
00:27:42,990 –> 00:27:43,434
[paul_tyler]: oh

1485
00:27:43,589 –> 00:27:44,491
[harry_n_stout]: with balances

1486
00:27:44,628 –> 00:27:44,769
[paul_tyler]: yeah

1487
00:27:45,012 –> 00:27:46,434
[harry_n_stout]: accounts that are in excess

1488
00:27:46,110 –> 00:27:47,640
[paul_tyler]: yeah

1489
00:27:47,015 –> 00:27:51,162
[harry_n_stout]: of the amounts involved i think that’s
problematic i mean that’s one of the issues

1490
00:27:51,302 –> 00:27:56,872
[harry_n_stout]: that i do think is problematic and
maybe that’s a consideration that the consumer soul

1491
00:27:56,972 –> 00:27:59,436
[harry_n_stout]: have one they purchase that maybe they
don’t purchase more than

1492
00:27:59,736 –> 00:28:00,122
[bruce_h__saul]: oh

1493
00:27:59,856 –> 00:28:00,257
[harry_n_stout]: a certain

1494
00:28:00,060 –> 00:28:00,324
[paul_tyler]: yeah

1495
00:28:00,297 –> 00:28:01,559
[harry_n_stout]: amount from a certain carrier

1496
00:28:01,724 –> 00:28:02,624
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

1497
00:28:01,980 –> 00:28:03,122
[harry_n_stout]: because there are limits on

1498
00:28:03,164 –> 00:28:03,447
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

1499
00:28:03,202 –> 00:28:05,165
[harry_n_stout]: coverage the same way that people will

1500
00:28:05,153 –> 00:28:05,174
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

1501
00:28:06,588 –> 00:28:07,048
[harry_n_stout]: take their

1502
00:28:06,986 –> 00:28:08,084
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

1503
00:28:07,730 –> 00:28:08,230
[harry_n_stout]: their bank

1504
00:28:08,078 –> 00:28:08,179
[bruce_h__saul]: ah

1505
00:28:08,351 –> 00:28:10,815
[harry_n_stout]: deposit and put them with you know

1506
00:28:10,943 –> 00:28:10,964
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

1507
00:28:11,336 –> 00:28:14,000
[harry_n_stout]: again i’m not an expert on f
d i c coverage but it’s i think

1508
00:28:14,100 –> 00:28:15,302
[harry_n_stout]: on a per account basis

1509
00:28:14,940 –> 00:28:16,050
[paul_tyler]: yeah

1510
00:28:15,763 –> 00:28:19,950
[harry_n_stout]: so people try to limit their accounts
and spread their potential liability to a number

1511
00:28:19,952 –> 00:28:20,113
[ramsey_d_smith]: yes

1512
00:28:20,010 –> 00:28:24,297
[harry_n_stout]: of banks so that if something does
happen if there’s a wholesale impact of the

1513
00:28:24,337 –> 00:28:25,379
[harry_n_stout]: banking community

1514
00:28:25,176 –> 00:28:25,422
[bruce_h__saul]: yeah

1515
00:28:25,740 –> 00:28:29,065
[harry_n_stout]: they’re covered by deft see insurance and
i think

1516
00:28:29,093 –> 00:28:29,195
[paul_tyler]: ah

1517
00:28:29,406 –> 00:28:30,007
[harry_n_stout]: that’s another issue

1518
00:28:30,008 –> 00:28:30,069
[paul_tyler]: ah

1519
00:28:30,027 –> 00:28:30,888
[harry_n_stout]: when it comes to guarantee

1520
00:28:30,849 –> 00:28:30,870
[paul_tyler]: m

1521
00:28:30,948 –> 00:28:33,192
[harry_n_stout]: funds is you know you ought to
know that

1522
00:28:33,164 –> 00:28:33,449
[ramsey_d_smith]: yes

1523
00:28:33,330 –> 00:28:33,350
[paul_tyler]: m

1524
00:28:33,352 –> 00:28:37,936
[harry_n_stout]: for these larger amounts involved if you
if you have amount with an annuity or

1525
00:28:38,016 –> 00:28:43,041
[harry_n_stout]: a life insurance policy that’s an access
of these limits there’s potentially a concern there

1526
00:28:43,796 –> 00:28:43,936
[bruce_h__saul]: yeah

1527
00:28:43,899 –> 00:28:44,533
[paul_tyler]: m yeah

1528
00:28:44,597 –> 00:28:44,998
[bruce_h__saul]: yeah i agree

1529
00:28:44,845 –> 00:28:44,926
[harry_n_stout]: and

1530
00:28:45,404 –> 00:28:46,274
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

1531
00:28:45,699 –> 00:28:46,180
[bruce_h__saul]: the point is the

1532
00:28:46,132 –> 00:28:47,092
[harry_n_stout]: yeah

1533
00:28:46,240 –> 00:28:50,607
[bruce_h__saul]: same for f d i c or
in the state the guarantee association is only

1534
00:28:50,727 –> 00:28:51,649
[bruce_h__saul]: obligated to cover

1535
00:28:51,944 –> 00:28:52,164
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

1536
00:28:52,250 –> 00:28:54,233
[bruce_h__saul]: the amount up to that limit so
you’re right

1537
00:28:54,334 –> 00:28:54,435
[harry_n_stout]: ah

1538
00:28:54,674 –> 00:28:54,954
[bruce_h__saul]: if the

1539
00:28:55,042 –> 00:28:55,263
[harry_n_stout]: oh

1540
00:28:55,235 –> 00:28:55,996
[bruce_h__saul]: consumer as

1541
00:28:56,384 –> 00:28:56,546
[ramsey_d_smith]: ye

1542
00:28:56,602 –> 00:28:57,103
[harry_n_stout]: oh

1543
00:28:57,037 –> 00:28:58,078
[bruce_h__saul]: life insurance benefits say

1544
00:28:58,064 –> 00:28:58,934
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

1545
00:28:58,959 –> 00:29:02,923
[bruce_h__saul]: even with the same company either one
policy or more that exceed that limit

1546
00:29:03,622 –> 00:29:04,642
[harry_n_stout]: yeah

1547
00:29:03,924 –> 00:29:04,925
[bruce_h__saul]: they don’t have that protection

1548
00:29:06,201 –> 00:29:11,029
[paul_tyler]: yeah now i’ve seen i’ve had these
questions come up in context with you guaranteed

1549
00:29:11,449 –> 00:29:13,653
[paul_tyler]: income writers on products

1550
00:29:13,440 –> 00:29:13,481
[bruce_h__saul]: m

1551
00:29:14,755 –> 00:29:14,895
[paul_tyler]: it’s

00:29:14,812 –> 00:29:15,037
[harry_n_stout]: ye

[harry_n_stout]: m

1559
00:29:19,423 –> 00:29:21,186
[paul_tyler]: i think the last two years i

[harry_n_stout]: yeah

1561
00:29:21,266 –> 00:29:24,812
[paul_tyler]: probably had more direct contact with customers
and with agents on ome of these topics

1562
00:29:24,832 –> 00:29:25,012
[paul_tyler]: than i

1563
00:29:25,012 –> 00:29:25,235

00:31:05,708 –> 00:31:09,274
[harry_n_stout]: ratings of the companies that involved i

1674
00:31:10,620 –> 00:31:10,841
[paul_tyler]: oh

1675
00:31:10,697 –> 00:31:15,685
[harry_n_stout]: you represent those companies that you feel
most comfortable with a financial strength standpoint and

1676
00:31:15,865 –> 00:31:21,274
[harry_n_stout]: meet whatever threshold you or your organization
has for the sale of those products and

1677
00:31:22,096 –> 00:31:25,642
[harry_n_stout]: different financial different organizations will sell different
financials

1678
00:31:25,304 –> 00:31:25,546
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

1679
00:31:25,682 –> 00:31:27,184
[harry_n_stout]: trengthwriting some are comfortable

1680
00:31:27,330 –> 00:31:27,551
[paul_tyler]: oh

1681
00:31:27,605 –> 00:31:29,368
[harry_n_stout]: selling lower financial

1682
00:31:29,123 –> 00:31:29,144
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

1683
00:31:29,428 –> 00:31:32,212
[harry_n_stout]: strength writings others must have a certain
threshold

1684
00:31:31,890 –> 00:31:33,180
[paul_tyler]: yeah

1685
00:31:32,693 –> 00:31:36,460
[harry_n_stout]: and above that they sell and then
i talk about state regulation

1686
00:31:36,494 –> 00:31:36,674
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

1687
00:31:36,560 –> 00:31:38,463
[harry_n_stout]: being the third bucket

1688
00:31:38,503 –> 00:31:38,663
[ramsey_d_smith]: yes

1689
00:31:38,703 –> 00:31:38,844
[harry_n_stout]: and

1690
00:31:39,037 –> 00:31:39,263
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

1691
00:31:39,424 –> 00:31:43,531
[harry_n_stout]: and if i guarantee funds are part
of the conversation if they’re aware of them

1692
00:31:43,936 –> 00:31:44,099
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

1693
00:31:44,012 –> 00:31:46,336
[harry_n_stout]: and that they’ve been disclosed to them
i think

00:31:46,364 –> 00:31:47,144
[ramsey_d_smith]: ye

1695
00:31:46,416 –> 00:31:47,298

[paul_tyler]: yes

1697
00:31:47,358 –> 00:31:52,987
[harry_n_stout]: to be made aware that that’s another
another element in the overall hierarchy of solvency

1698
00:31:53,248 –> 00:31:56,132
[harry_n_stout]: and i guess i’m not trying to
create maso’s hierarchy of needs here

[paul_tyler]: oh

2068
00:38:38,709 –> 00:38:40,813

[harry_n_stout]: and then we’re going to have developing
fiduciary standards over the next

2078
00:38:50,550 –> 00:38:50,852
[paul_tyler]: oh

2079
00:38:50,649 –> 00:38:52,117
[harry_n_stout]: couple of years what

2080
00:38:51,996 –> 00:38:52,656
[bruce_h__saul]: yeah

2081
00:38:53,003 –> 00:38:55,492
[harry_n_stout]: should not this be part of that
conversation because

2082
00:38:55,380 –> 00:38:55,561
[paul_tyler]: yeah

2083
00:38:55,552 –> 00:38:57,378
[harry_n_stout]: it is it is part of what

2084
00:38:57,554 –> 00:38:57,818
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

2085
00:38:58,482 –> 00:39:03,450
[harry_n_stout]: if you will the guarantees are part
of the solvency backstop for the annuity products

2086
00:39:03,490 –> 00:39:03,610
[harry_n_stout]: that

2087
00:39:03,561 –> 00:39:03,581
[bruce_h__saul]: a

2088
00:39:03,650 –> 00:39:03,730
[harry_n_stout]: are

2089
00:39:03,773 –> 00:39:03,794
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

2090
00:39:03,811 –> 00:39:04,091
[harry_n_stout]: sold

2091
00:39:04,394 –> 00:39:04,634
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

2092
00:39:04,612 –> 00:39:07,336
[harry_n_stout]: so you would think maybe that as
part of that conversation

2093
00:39:07,178 –> 00:39:07,465
[bruce_h__saul]: yet

2094
00:39:07,458 –> 00:39:07,478
[paul_tyler]: a

2095
00:39:07,917 –> 00:39:13,892
[harry_n_stout]: something would nudge it along to big
and have these these funds disclosed and talked

2096
00:39:13,932 –> 00:39:16,580
[harry_n_stout]: about more that’s just the thought and
bruce you want to add to that

2097
00:39:18,107 –> 00:39:18,267
[bruce_h__saul]: yeah

2098
00:39:18,202 –> 00:39:18,862
[harry_n_stout]: yeah

2099
00:39:18,307 –> 00:39:23,256
[bruce_h__saul]: i think those are very good points
harry one thing i would add

2100
00:39:23,225 –> 00:39:23,409
[harry_n_stout]: oh

2101
00:39:23,337 –> 00:39:26,643
[bruce_h__saul]: just for interest and maybe a little
bit of direction is

2102
00:39:27,044 –> 00:39:27,324
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

2103
00:39:28,166 –> 00:39:30,710
[bruce_h__saul]: the state of minnesota i believe it
was in two thousand

2104
00:39:30,704 –> 00:39:30,888
[ramsey_d_smith]: ye

2105
00:39:30,770 –> 00:39:34,516
[bruce_h__saul]: fifteen amended their guarantee fund law in
an interesting way

2106
00:39:34,544 –> 00:39:35,564
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

2107
00:39:35,898 –> 00:39:41,327
[bruce_h__saul]: the state retained the advertising prohibition so
the language i used earlier

2108
00:39:41,962 –> 00:39:42,204
[harry_n_stout]: oh

2109
00:39:42,249 –> 00:39:46,556
[bruce_h__saul]: is still unchanged in the minnesota statute
but the law also

2110
00:39:46,443 –> 00:39:46,463
[paul_tyler]: a

2111
00:39:46,736 –> 00:39:49,501
[bruce_h__saul]: goes on to say explicitly that the

2112
00:39:49,544 –> 00:39:49,745
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

2113
00:39:49,581 –> 00:39:54,147
[bruce_h__saul]: producer may verbally explain those are the
words verbally explain

2114
00:39:53,744 –> 00:39:56,084
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh oh

2115
00:39:55,048 –> 00:39:55,489
[bruce_h__saul]: guarantee

2116
00:39:55,564 –> 00:39:55,686
[harry_n_stout]: ah

2117
00:39:55,569 –> 00:39:56,510
[bruce_h__saul]: fund coverage at

2118
00:39:56,564 –> 00:39:56,828
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

2119
00:39:56,610 –> 00:39:57,170
[bruce_h__saul]: any time

2120
00:39:57,824 –> 00:39:58,089
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

2121
00:39:57,931 –> 00:39:59,713
[bruce_h__saul]: during the application process or

2122
00:39:59,864 –> 00:40:00,704
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

2123
00:39:59,933 –> 00:40:01,715
[bruce_h__saul]: after um

2124
00:40:01,673 –> 00:40:01,694
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

2125
00:40:02,660 –> 00:40:07,523
[bruce_h__saul]: that’s yeah maybe a separate conversation that
seems to me

2126
00:40:07,523 –> 00:40:07,644
[harry_n_stout]: said

2127
00:40:07,623 –> 00:40:10,692
[bruce_h__saul]: not an ideal solution because it’s a
little bit of a head scratcher you know

2128
00:40:11,062 –> 00:40:11,932
[harry_n_stout]: yeah

2129
00:40:11,153 –> 00:40:13,538
[bruce_h__saul]: i can’t use the existence of the
fun to

2130
00:40:13,514 –> 00:40:13,835
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

2131
00:40:13,598 –> 00:40:16,603
[bruce_h__saul]: sell but i can verbally explain it

2132
00:40:16,898 –> 00:40:16,980
[harry_n_stout]: oh

2133
00:40:17,124 –> 00:40:20,550
[bruce_h__saul]: but i just offer that is at

[ramsey_d_smith]: ah

2160
00:40:47,337 –> 00:40:48,579
[bruce_h__saul]: any changes in the model

[ramsey_d_smith]: yes

2162
00:40:49,100 –> 00:40:49,360

[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

2164
00:40:50,362 –> 00:40:54,812
[bruce_h__saul]: you know just as a general proposition
are um take a long time to accomplish

2165
00:40:55,012 –> 00:40:58,963
[bruce_h__saul]: it’s a deliberative process with a lot
of input from various parties

2166
00:40:58,574 –> 00:40:58,857
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

2167
00:41:00,276 –> 00:41:00,376

[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

2171
00:41:02,359 –> 00:41:05,304
[bruce_h__saul]: to change the laws nation wide i
think would

2172
00:41:05,562 –> 00:41:05,723
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

2173
00:41:05,625 –> 00:41:06,286
[bruce_h__saul]: have to go through

2174
00:41:06,164 –> 00:41:06,425
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

2175
00:41:06,346 –> 00:41:07,568
[bruce_h__saul]: that any ice process

2176
00:41:08,264 –> 00:41:08,549
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

2177
00:41:08,750 –> 00:41:11,755
[bruce_h__saul]: to me in that conversation the starting
point has to be

2178
00:41:12,271 –> 00:41:12,291
[harry_n_stout]: a

2179
00:41:12,918 –> 00:41:18,787
[bruce_h__saul]: the points that we’ve discussed today uh
you know what what are the concerns

2180
00:41:18,574 –> 00:41:19,102
[harry_n_stout]: what

2181
00:41:18,807 –> 00:41:20,690
[bruce_h__saul]: how do we address concerns that

2182
00:41:20,984 –> 00:41:21,974
[ramsey_d_smith]: yah

2183
00:41:22,050 –> 00:41:23,310
[paul_tyler]: yeah

2184
00:41:22,193 –> 00:41:23,314
[bruce_h__saul]: some players might

2185
00:41:23,198 –> 00:41:23,320
[ramsey_d_smith]: for

2186
00:41:23,742 –> 00:41:23,905
[paul_tyler]: yeah

2187
00:41:23,778 –> 00:41:23,799
[harry_n_stout]: i

2188
00:41:23,795 –> 00:41:26,119
[bruce_h__saul]: inappropriately use the existence of the fund

2189
00:41:26,084 –> 00:41:26,306
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

2190
00:41:26,920 –> 00:41:31,909
[bruce_h__saul]: for for sales that aren’t in the
best interest what about the complexity of these

2191
00:41:31,949 –> 00:41:32,590
[bruce_h__saul]: products how do we

2192
00:41:32,616 –> 00:41:32,780
[ramsey_d_smith]: yes

2193
00:41:32,670 –> 00:41:33,271
[bruce_h__saul]: explain them

2194
00:41:34,334 –> 00:41:34,637
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

2195
00:41:34,815 –> 00:41:35,059
[harry_n_stout]: yeah

2196
00:41:35,415 –> 00:41:42,086
[bruce_h__saul]: so the conversation would have to absolutely
seriously consider those points and others but i

2197
00:41:42,146 –> 00:41:45,012
[bruce_h__saul]: think a foreseeable outcome would be something

2198
00:41:45,011 –> 00:41:45,172
[paul_tyler]: yes

2199
00:41:45,072 –> 00:41:45,232
[bruce_h__saul]: that

2200
00:41:45,246 –> 00:41:45,369
[harry_n_stout]: yeah

2201
00:41:45,953 –> 00:41:50,823
[bruce_h__saul]: appropriately protects the consumer and the solvency
but doesn’t have

2202
00:41:50,610 –> 00:41:51,420
[paul_tyler]: oh

2203
00:41:52,696 –> 00:41:53,977
[bruce_h__saul]: what frankly is a gag

2204
00:41:53,984 –> 00:41:54,854
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

2205
00:41:54,077 –> 00:41:56,079
[bruce_h__saul]: rule on the ability to talk about
it

2206
00:41:56,820 –> 00:41:57,690
[paul_tyler]: yeah

2207
00:41:56,864 –> 00:41:57,614
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

2208
00:41:57,260 –> 00:42:00,364
[bruce_h__saul]: you know with consumers for companies and
producers that would

2209
00:42:00,290 –> 00:42:00,432
[paul_tyler]: yeah

2210
00:42:00,404 –> 00:42:01,224
[bruce_h__saul]: be my bottom line

2211
00:42:01,770 –> 00:42:04,515
[paul_tyler]: well thanks well hey rams you were
like at the top of the hour here

2212
00:42:05,926 –> 00:42:05,946
[ramsey_d_smith]: a

2213
00:42:06,058 –> 00:42:06,279
[paul_tyler]: final

2214
00:42:06,142 –> 00:42:06,484
[harry_n_stout]: yes

2215
00:42:06,359 –> 00:42:06,659
[paul_tyler]: thoughts

2216
00:42:06,674 –> 00:42:07,261
[ramsey_d_smith]: my

2217
00:42:06,780 –> 00:42:07,260
[paul_tyler]: questions

2218
00:42:08,525 –> 00:42:11,830
[ramsey_d_smith]: um it’s a it’s a it’s a
delicate issue

2219
00:42:12,170 –> 00:42:12,331
[paul_tyler]: yeah

2220
00:42:12,816 –> 00:42:13,179
[bruce_h__saul]: oh

2221
00:42:13,012 –> 00:42:14,482
[harry_n_stout]: oh yeah

2222
00:42:14,455 –> 00:42:17,961
[ramsey_d_smith]: and you know and i think at
the end of the day like

2223
00:42:17,940 –> 00:42:18,630
[paul_tyler]: oh

2224
00:42:19,083 –> 00:42:19,243
[ramsey_d_smith]: it’s

2225
00:42:19,599 –> 00:42:19,620
[paul_tyler]: m

2226
00:42:19,704 –> 00:42:21,567
[ramsey_d_smith]: it’s going to be up to the
regulators

2227
00:42:21,786 –> 00:42:22,068
[bruce_h__saul]: oh

2228
00:42:22,388 –> 00:42:25,714
[ramsey_d_smith]: to decide you know what the right
you know what the right what the right

2229
00:42:25,774 –> 00:42:31,463
[ramsey_d_smith]: balance is and you know within put
from the industry you know that again a

2230
00:42:31,543 –> 00:42:36,131
[ramsey_d_smith]: rod und a best interest framework i
think is a very good way to do

2231
00:42:36,211 –> 00:42:36,411
[ramsey_d_smith]: that

2232
00:42:36,390 –> 00:42:36,934
[paul_tyler]: i like that

2233
00:42:36,792 –> 00:42:43,664
[ramsey_d_smith]: ultimately ultimately is is not talking about
it in everybody’s best interest especially the clien

2234
00:42:44,405 –> 00:42:49,213
[ramsey_d_smith]: or is really really finding a very
specific way to communicate it uh

2235
00:42:49,627 –> 00:42:49,767
[harry_n_stout]: yep

2236
00:42:50,174 –> 00:42:50,275
[ramsey_d_smith]: the

2237
00:42:50,932 –> 00:42:51,253
[harry_n_stout]: oh

2238
00:42:51,396 –> 00:42:52,138
[ramsey_d_smith]: in the best interest

2239
00:42:52,901 –> 00:42:52,921
[bruce_h__saul]: m

2240
00:42:52,999 –> 00:42:53,961
[ramsey_d_smith]: and and if so

2241
00:42:54,129 –> 00:42:54,290
[harry_n_stout]: yeah

2242
00:42:55,343 –> 00:42:58,068
[ramsey_d_smith]: how does and how does one do
that in a way that’s that works for

2243
00:42:58,109 –> 00:43:01,030

32
00:00:58,627 –> 00:01:03,577
[paul_tyler]: homes are at such an important asset
class for for most retires you know for

33
00:01:03,857 –> 00:01:11,851
[paul_tyler]: typical people retiring social security and home
equity are probably the two biggest assets they’ve

34
00:01:11,931 –> 00:01:16,178
[paul_tyler]: got to to work with and and
use for

35
00:01:16,139 –> 00:01:16,422
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

36
00:01:16,299 –> 00:01:18,125

[ramsey_d_smith]: yes

40
00:01:22,200 –> 00:01:27,708

is downside sell sell our house you know

41
00:01:28,650 –> 00:01:33,117
[paul_tyler]: they take the proceeds move somewhere smaller
cheaper tax rates are lower and you freed

42
00:01:33,137 –> 00:01:37,845
[paul_tyler]: up this equity i mean that’s an
expense i very disruptive way to solve that

[ramsey_d_smith]: an equifye contract

172
00:05:56,647 –> 00:05:57,283
[david_shapiro]: hm

173
00:05:56,714 –> 00:05:59,839
[ramsey_d_smith]: um what’s different what do i what
do i have i still own my house

174
00:06:00,564 –> 00:06:00,705
[david_shapiro]: you’re

175
00:06:00,640 –> 00:06:00,841
[ramsey_d_smith]: um

176
00:06:00,725 –> 00:06:01,308
[david_shapiro]: still in your house

177
00:06:01,261 –> 00:06:04,927
[ramsey_d_smith]: but and so how much of my
house would i typically what i typically own

178
00:06:04,987 –> 00:06:07,914
[ramsey_d_smith]: like how would you typically would equify
or

179
00:06:07,848 –> 00:06:07,868
[paul_tyler]: a

180
00:06:07,974 –> 00:06:10,259
[ramsey_d_smith]: equifys investors what percentage

181
00:06:10,200 –> 00:06:10,482
[paul_tyler]: oh

182
00:06:10,319 –> 00:06:13,687
[ramsey_d_smith]: of a house would you typically purchase
in one of the transactions

183
00:06:13,763 –> 00:06:13,923
[david_shapiro]: yeah

184
00:06:13,890 –> 00:06:14,154
[paul_tyler]: oh

185
00:06:14,464 –> 00:06:17,449
[david_shapiro]: we can go up to thirty five
per cent

186
00:06:17,250 –> 00:06:18,210
[paul_tyler]: yeah

187
00:06:17,589 –> 00:06:21,055
[david_shapiro]: of the value of the home sometimes
a little bit more than thirty five percent

188
00:06:21,736 –> 00:06:24,000
[david_shapiro]: um so let’s just take an example

189
00:06:23,879 –> 00:06:24,443
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

190
00:06:24,060 –> 00:06:28,890
[david_shapiro]: let’s say you’ve got a million dollar
home and for purposes of this since thirty

191
00:06:28,950 –> 00:06:31,216
[david_shapiro]: seven per cent of the homes in
the country have no mortgage

192
00:06:31,020 –> 00:06:31,322
[paul_tyler]: oh

193
00:06:31,296 –> 00:06:35,244
[david_shapiro]: let’s assume that there’s no mortgage on
the home so we’ve got a million dollar

194
00:06:35,325 –> 00:06:41,896
[david_shapiro]: home let’s say the home owner wants
to get four hundred thousand dollars out of

195
00:06:41,936 –> 00:06:44,500
[david_shapiro]: their home let’s max it out and
say we can give him forty

196
00:06:44,501 –> 00:06:44,562
[ramsey_d_smith]: ah

197
00:06:44,560 –> 00:06:46,463
[david_shapiro]: per cent right so we basically

198
00:06:46,197 –> 00:06:46,769
[ramsey_d_smith]: hm

199
00:06:46,543 –> 00:06:51,972
[david_shapiro]: advance them forty per cent of the
value of their home and then since the

200
00:06:52,032 –> 00:06:55,078
[david_shapiro]: home is got a value of a
million dollars we

201
00:06:55,110 –> 00:06:56,550
[paul_tyler]: oh

202
00:06:55,198 –> 00:07:00,787
[david_shapiro]: put in three hundred thousand dollars of
what we call protected equity that sits on

203
00:07:00,867 –> 00:07:05,695
[david_shapiro]: top of the four hundred thousand that
we put in and then when the home

204
00:07:05,755 –> 00:07:11,705
[david_shapiro]: owner dies sells the property or chooses
to repay for that forty per cent they’re

205
00:07:11,845 –> 00:07:18,517
[david_shapiro]: going to give us you know half
of the value of the home above their

206
00:07:18,657 –> 00:07:19,538
[david_shapiro]: protected equity

207
00:07:19,589 –> 00:07:20,459
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

208
00:07:19,739 –> 00:07:23,866
[david_shapiro]: so the homes a million dollars we
put up for hundred thousand there’s three hundred

209
00:07:23,946 –> 00:07:28,814
[david_shapiro]: thousand that we don’t share in at
all and then anything above that plus the

210
00:07:28,854 –> 00:07:33,121
[david_shapiro]: appreciation in the home we would take
fifty percent and they would take fifty percent

211
00:07:34,363 –> 00:07:38,850
[david_shapiro]: if it was three hundred thousand dollar
instead of a four hundred thousand which is

212
00:07:38,931 –> 00:07:43,498
[david_shapiro]: thirty per cent we would probably take
thirty seven thirty eight per cent and they’d

213
00:07:43,538 –> 00:07:49,292
[david_shapiro]: have four hundred thousand in protected equity
that’s that’s in it plays out very nicely

214
00:07:49,332 –> 00:07:49,813
[david_shapiro]: in pictures

215
00:07:51,169 –> 00:07:51,189
[ramsey_d_smith]: i

216
00:07:51,197 –> 00:07:51,237
[david_shapiro]: it

217
00:07:51,249 –> 00:07:51,991
[ramsey_d_smith]: was going to say that

218
00:07:52,074 –> 00:07:52,215
[paul_tyler]: yeah

219
00:07:52,131 –> 00:07:52,271
[ramsey_d_smith]: that

220
00:07:52,180 –> 00:07:52,320
[david_shapiro]: yeah

221
00:07:52,351 –> 00:07:53,393
[ramsey_d_smith]: is that is that is

222
00:07:53,430 –> 00:07:53,694
[paul_tyler]: oh

223
00:07:53,473 –> 00:07:56,879
[ramsey_d_smith]: a transaction that that definitely would benefit
from a

224
00:07:56,910 –> 00:07:57,336
[paul_tyler]: oh

225
00:07:57,460 –> 00:07:59,042
[ramsey_d_smith]: would benefit from an illustration or

226
00:07:58,993 –> 00:07:59,194
[david_shapiro]: yes

227
00:07:59,123 –> 00:07:59,323
[ramsey_d_smith]: you know

228
00:07:59,616 –> 00:08:00,763
[david_shapiro]: yeah

229
00:07:59,804 –> 00:08:02,248
[ramsey_d_smith]: you know a picture so you can
understand so of what the parts are like

230
00:08:02,288 –> 00:08:06,054
[ramsey_d_smith]: what what exactly the terms are for
the protected equity etcetera but

231
00:08:06,353 –> 00:08:06,514
[david_shapiro]: yeah

232
00:08:06,515 –> 00:08:10,622
[ramsey_d_smith]: fundamentally so let’s maybe let’s just stick
with sort of like the general outcome so

233
00:08:11,583 –> 00:08:14,348
[ramsey_d_smith]: if i once i’ve engaged in this
transaction

234
00:08:14,190 –> 00:08:14,432
[paul_tyler]: yeah

235
00:08:14,388 –> 00:08:15,429
[ramsey_d_smith]: with you like how is

236
00:08:15,505 –> 00:08:15,687
[paul_tyler]: yeah

237
00:08:15,509 –> 00:08:20,595
[ramsey_d_smith]: it how is it you know how
is it different than a typical reverse mortgage

238
00:08:20,533 –> 00:08:20,815
[david_shapiro]: yeah

239
00:08:20,655 –> 00:08:23,698
[ramsey_d_smith]: why am i in a the consumer
why am i in a better position

240
00:08:24,213 –> 00:08:32,807
[david_shapiro]: yeah so i think the better question
is based on each individual right so we

241
00:08:32,887 –> 00:08:33,769
[david_shapiro]: don’t necessarily

242
00:08:33,509 –> 00:08:33,710
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

243
00:08:33,889 –> 00:08:35,271
[david_shapiro]: believe that there is a right or
a wrong

244
00:08:35,819 –> 00:08:35,981
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

245
00:08:35,892 –> 00:08:38,957
[david_shapiro]: so think that if you’re an advisor
and you’re working

246
00:08:38,759 –> 00:08:38,981
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

247
00:08:39,017 –> 00:08:39,638
[david_shapiro]: with you know

248
00:08:39,659 –> 00:08:39,882
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

249
00:08:39,859 –> 00:08:40,720
[david_shapiro]: a client of yours

250
00:08:40,756 –> 00:08:40,898
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

251
00:08:40,920 –> 00:08:42,363
[david_shapiro]: that is in this position

252
00:08:42,120 –> 00:08:42,402
[paul_tyler]: oh

253
00:08:43,124 –> 00:08:46,510
[david_shapiro]: you should be presenting them a he
lock you can’t really

254
00:08:47,008 –> 00:08:47,029
[paul_tyler]: a

255
00:08:47,171 –> 00:08:47,732
[david_shapiro]: you know with

256
00:08:47,699 –> 00:08:47,963
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

257
00:08:47,792 –> 00:08:55,785
[david_shapiro]: finn registered rep can’t recommend a key
lock because of the fender restrictions on utilizing

258
00:08:55,825 –> 00:08:58,870
[david_shapiro]: home equity particularly if you’re going to
be utilizing that toby security

259
00:08:58,650 –> 00:09:00,151
[paul_tyler]: m oh

260
00:09:00,533 –> 00:09:03,518
[david_shapiro]: so but they should make them aware
of their options one would be a key

261
00:09:03,598 –> 00:09:07,905
[david_shapiro]: lock you know paul you started that
with they could sell their home right and

262
00:09:08,306 –> 00:09:14,156
[david_shapiro]: re locate and you know get a
smaller place there verse mortgage presents a

263
00:09:14,370 –> 00:09:15,600
[paul_tyler]: yeah

264
00:09:14,476 –> 00:09:16,319
[david_shapiro]: different opportunity because

265
00:09:15,779 –> 00:09:16,086
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

266
00:09:16,961 –> 00:09:19,044
[david_shapiro]: it doesn’t have a current interest rate
it has

267
00:09:19,019 –> 00:09:19,408
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

268
00:09:19,104 –> 00:09:20,206
[david_shapiro]: an accruived interest rate

269
00:09:20,729 –> 00:09:21,011
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

270
00:09:20,967 –> 00:09:21,308
[david_shapiro]: and

271
00:09:21,577 –> 00:09:21,698
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

272
00:09:21,789 –> 00:09:22,189
[david_shapiro]: you can’t

273
00:09:22,110 –> 00:09:22,313
[paul_tyler]: oh

274
00:09:22,370 –> 00:09:26,256
[david_shapiro]: be on a heem heck mortgage which
is the most popular

275
00:09:25,830 –> 00:09:27,330
[paul_tyler]: oh

276
00:09:26,496 –> 00:09:32,647
[david_shapiro]: government guaranteed reverse mortgage you can’t have
a first mortgage so one differential

277
00:09:32,670 –> 00:09:33,015
[paul_tyler]: yeah

278
00:09:32,807 –> 00:09:37,294
[david_shapiro]: between us and reverse mortgage is if
somebody has a mortgage on their home and

279
00:09:37,555 –> 00:09:38,677
[david_shapiro]: it’s at a four per

280
00:09:38,610 –> 00:09:40,230
[paul_tyler]: yeah

281
00:09:38,797 –> 00:09:42,864
[david_shapiro]: cent or three percent you know they
may not want to pay that off just

282
00:09:42,904 –> 00:09:47,191
[david_shapiro]: to get the reverse mortgage which today
is going to be starting at probably a

283
00:09:47,311 –> 00:09:52,219
[david_shapiro]: six and a half per and you
know adjustable rate interest so that that’s one

284
00:09:52,259 –> 00:09:55,665
[david_shapiro]: of the things that they need to
consider and then the thing i think that

285
00:09:55,925 –> 00:09:56,046
[david_shapiro]: that

286
00:09:56,369 –> 00:09:56,389
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

287
00:09:57,027 –> 00:09:58,610
[david_shapiro]: most differentiates us is that

288
00:09:58,499 –> 00:09:58,519
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

289
00:09:59,451 –> 00:10:01,274
[david_shapiro]: our market with aging

290
00:10:01,200 –> 00:10:01,220
[paul_tyler]: m

291
00:10:01,355 –> 00:10:05,822
[david_shapiro]: baby boomers the older people get they
don’t want to mortgage they don’t want to

292
00:10:05,882 –> 00:10:12,513
[david_shapiro]: have you know a current payment they
don’t want to see a accruing inter rate

293
00:10:12,573 –> 00:10:17,241
[david_shapiro]: where every statement that they get pay
the balance is going up

294
00:10:17,309 –> 00:10:18,029
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

295
00:10:17,321 –> 00:10:20,627
[david_shapiro]: and up and up it’s not going
to ever go down so i think that

296
00:10:20,437 –> 00:10:20,579
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

297
00:10:21,047 –> 00:10:27,138
[david_shapiro]: you know that’s real limitation end frankly
the other issue with reversed mortgages is that

298
00:10:27,598 –> 00:10:30,864
[david_shapiro]: you know there’s a cost to our
product there’s a cost to reverse mortgage there’s

299
00:10:30,904 –> 00:10:31,324
[david_shapiro]: a cost to

300
00:10:31,349 –> 00:10:31,752
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

301
00:10:31,385 –> 00:10:33,909
[david_shapiro]: a hey lock with reversed mortgages

302
00:10:33,407 –> 00:10:33,548
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

303
00:10:34,229 –> 00:10:34,430
[david_shapiro]: and

304
00:10:34,590 –> 00:10:35,220
[paul_tyler]: yeah

305
00:10:34,610 –> 00:10:36,814
[david_shapiro]: with he locks a lot of that
call t is

306
00:10:36,749 –> 00:10:36,931
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

307
00:10:37,314 –> 00:10:39,638
[david_shapiro]: you know is built into the spread
on the interest

308
00:10:39,434 –> 00:10:39,454
[paul_tyler]: i

309
00:10:39,739 –> 00:10:40,580
[david_shapiro]: rate but

310
00:10:40,649 –> 00:10:40,890
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

311
00:10:40,660 –> 00:10:43,124
[david_shapiro]: just the up front cost we were
looking at

312
00:10:42,987 –> 00:10:43,148
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

313
00:10:43,665 –> 00:10:48,052
[david_shapiro]: a comparison one of our financial planters
r i s and sacramento has a client

314
00:10:48,193 –> 00:10:48,393
[david_shapiro]: that

315
00:10:48,690 –> 00:10:48,710
[paul_tyler]: m

316
00:10:48,974 –> 00:10:53,041
[david_shapiro]: wants to use our product and the
apples apples comparison to get

317
00:10:53,430 –> 00:10:53,651
[paul_tyler]: oh

318
00:10:53,481 –> 00:10:56,186
[david_shapiro]: you know four hundred thousand dollars out
of their home

319
00:10:57,210 –> 00:10:57,472
[paul_tyler]: oh

320
00:10:57,248 –> 00:10:59,151
[david_shapiro]: the reverse mortgage just the cost

321
00:10:58,919 –> 00:10:59,226
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

322
00:10:59,211 –> 00:11:05,361
[david_shapiro]: to originate it with twenty eight thousand
dollars our product was twelve thousand dollars

323
00:11:05,138 –> 00:11:05,159
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

324
00:11:05,501 –> 00:11:10,430
[david_shapiro]: so much more expensive up front and
then the other issue with reversed mortgages is

325
00:11:10,570 –> 00:11:13,314
[david_shapiro]: that you don’t know what the lie
of bill ty to the estate is going

326
00:11:13,355 –> 00:11:17,802
[david_shapiro]: to be so with our product you
know exactly if we’re putting up that you

327
00:11:17,842 –> 00:11:20,827
[david_shapiro]: know forty per cent which is a
lot right and we’re going to take half

328
00:11:20,927 –> 00:11:24,293
[david_shapiro]: of the of the net equity in
the home you know upon their death or

329
00:11:24,393 –> 00:11:29,982
[david_shapiro]: sale whatever they know that fifty percent
of their home can be managed in the

330
00:11:30,042 –> 00:11:34,510
[david_shapiro]: estate where with the reverse mortgage you
just don’t know what that balance is going

331
00:11:34,550 –> 00:11:40,660
[david_shapiro]: to be you know in until there
are so for financial planning purposes it’s it’s

332
00:11:40,720 –> 00:11:41,401
[david_shapiro]: a difference that we

333
00:11:41,400 –> 00:11:41,664
[paul_tyler]: oh

334
00:11:41,461 –> 00:11:43,264
[david_shapiro]: think you know helps helps our

335
00:11:43,620 –> 00:11:43,901
[paul_tyler]: oh

336
00:11:43,685 –> 00:11:46,109
[david_shapiro]: cause in you know setting that comparison
up

337
00:11:46,320 –> 00:11:46,626
[paul_tyler]: oh

338
00:11:46,550 –> 00:11:47,772
[david_shapiro]: and then reputationally

339
00:11:47,999 –> 00:11:48,260
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

340
00:11:48,233 –> 00:11:51,017
[david_shapiro]: oh you know i don’t want to

341
00:11:51,479 –> 00:11:51,680
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

342
00:11:51,698 –> 00:11:53,742
[david_shapiro]: malign the reverse mortgage industry but

343
00:11:54,060 –> 00:11:54,301
[paul_tyler]: oh

344
00:11:54,363 –> 00:11:55,565
[david_shapiro]: there is a historical

345
00:11:55,765 –> 00:11:55,949
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

346
00:11:56,747 –> 00:12:00,874
[david_shapiro]: a legacy fear of reverse mortgages that
built there early in the

347
00:12:00,869 –> 00:12:01,153
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

348
00:12:01,114 –> 00:12:01,775
[david_shapiro]: in the industry

349
00:12:02,026 –> 00:12:02,189
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

350
00:12:02,436 –> 00:12:02,877
[david_shapiro]: um

351
00:12:03,330 –> 00:12:03,350
[paul_tyler]: m

352
00:12:03,398 –> 00:12:06,543
[david_shapiro]: and so you know you have to
deal with that general generation

353
00:12:06,360 –> 00:12:06,601
[paul_tyler]: oh

354
00:12:06,603 –> 00:12:08,386
[david_shapiro]: ally as well because a lot of
the

355
00:12:08,849 –> 00:12:09,179
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

356
00:12:08,927 –> 00:12:10,069
[david_shapiro]: baby boomers had

357
00:12:10,020 –> 00:12:10,324
[paul_tyler]: oh

358
00:12:10,350 –> 00:12:13,374
[david_shapiro]: parents of theirs that you know looked
at a reverse

359
00:12:13,230 –> 00:12:13,511
[paul_tyler]: oh

360
00:12:13,434 –> 00:12:18,298
[david_shapiro]: mortgage and felt that it was not
not appropriate for them so the reverse mortgage

361
00:12:18,338 –> 00:12:19,479
[david_shapiro]: industry has some baggage

362
00:12:19,530 –> 00:12:19,772
[paul_tyler]: oh

363
00:12:19,560 –> 00:12:22,122
[david_shapiro]: that that they have to deal with
historically

364
00:12:22,829 –> 00:12:23,130
[ramsey_d_smith]: yah

365
00:12:23,101 –> 00:12:25,067
[paul_tyler]: well well and you kind of you

366
00:12:25,098 –> 00:12:25,238
[ramsey_d_smith]: yah

367
00:12:25,107 –> 00:12:25,549
[paul_tyler]: know alluded

368
00:12:25,483 –> 00:12:25,744
[david_shapiro]: oh

369
00:12:25,589 –> 00:12:25,649
[paul_tyler]: to

370
00:12:25,619 –> 00:12:25,905
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

371
00:12:25,689 –> 00:12:29,390
[paul_tyler]: this earlier which is when people

372
00:12:29,443 –> 00:12:30,011
[david_shapiro]: yeah

373
00:12:29,470 –> 00:12:31,093
[paul_tyler]: say is this good product or bad
product well

374
00:12:31,418 –> 00:12:31,439
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

375
00:12:31,434 –> 00:12:32,816
[paul_tyler]: it always starts with

376
00:12:32,819 –> 00:12:33,749
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

377
00:12:33,777 –> 00:12:34,819
[paul_tyler]: two words it depends

378
00:12:35,493 –> 00:12:35,635
[david_shapiro]: yeah

379
00:12:35,961 –> 00:12:39,126
[paul_tyler]: now now if my goal you know
ramsey

380
00:12:39,043 –> 00:12:39,325
[david_shapiro]: oh

381
00:12:39,587 –> 00:12:41,691
[paul_tyler]: i’m thinking if i’m goin to do
one of these things i think there are

382
00:12:41,731 –> 00:12:45,477
[paul_tyler]: two goals i have tell me challenging
me on the question because maybe i’m not

383
00:12:45,577 –> 00:12:46,579
[paul_tyler]: thinking of this way one is

384
00:12:46,829 –> 00:12:48,239
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

385
00:12:47,240 –> 00:12:55,033
[paul_tyler]: i want to maximize my income available
for my house two leaves something probably you

386
00:12:55,093 –> 00:12:58,819
[paul_tyler]: know as much as i possibly can
to my my survivor so think i have

387
00:12:58,879 –> 00:13:02,405
[paul_tyler]: two goals now david i can see
two different scenarios taking place here

388
00:13:02,369 –> 00:13:02,531
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

389
00:13:02,565 –> 00:13:06,132
[paul_tyler]: one is let’s say t zero ramsey

390
00:13:06,523 –> 00:13:06,543
[david_shapiro]: m

391
00:13:06,934 –> 00:13:07,656
[paul_tyler]: housing market

392
00:13:07,402 –> 00:13:07,423
[david_shapiro]: m

393
00:13:07,796 –> 00:13:12,306
[paul_tyler]: is it’s index to a hundred you
know by the time i pass on it’s

394
00:13:12,406 –> 00:13:12,587
[paul_tyler]: now

395
00:13:14,189 –> 00:13:14,435
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

396
00:13:14,650 –> 00:13:19,257
[paul_tyler]: two thirty five yu know what it
was you know prior huge

397
00:13:19,499 –> 00:13:19,702
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

398
00:13:19,618 –> 00:13:20,339
[paul_tyler]: appreciation

399
00:13:20,806 –> 00:13:21,373
[david_shapiro]: hm

400
00:13:21,201 –> 00:13:25,668
[paul_tyler]: one scenario other scenarios you know is
pretty flat market you know only we only

401
00:13:25,708 –> 00:13:31,358
[paul_tyler]: had i appreciate david how do those
each of those how would these instruments perform

402
00:13:32,019 –> 00:13:32,219
[paul_tyler]: you know

403
00:13:32,939 –> 00:13:33,689
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

404
00:13:33,040 –> 00:13:36,586
[paul_tyler]: reverse mortgage versus what you’re doing those
are my two goals

405
00:13:37,093 –> 00:13:37,215
[david_shapiro]: yeah

406
00:13:37,127 –> 00:13:37,608
[paul_tyler]: max mis

407
00:13:37,539 –> 00:13:37,661
[david_shapiro]: yeah

408
00:13:37,708 –> 00:13:39,356
[paul_tyler]: income max that’s what i’m leaving

409
00:13:39,803 –> 00:13:41,125
[david_shapiro]: yeah well and

410
00:13:41,359 –> 00:13:41,479
[ramsey_d_smith]: we

411
00:13:41,405 –> 00:13:45,132
[david_shapiro]: the two factors that you have to
take into account are what’s the

412
00:13:45,779 –> 00:13:46,769
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

413
00:13:46,170 –> 00:13:46,312
[paul_tyler]: ye

414
00:13:46,233 –> 00:13:47,235
[david_shapiro]: forward looking

415
00:13:47,150 –> 00:13:47,352
[ramsey_d_smith]: yes

416
00:13:47,816 –> 00:13:48,537
[david_shapiro]: interest rate

417
00:13:48,691 –> 00:13:48,855
[ramsey_d_smith]: yes

418
00:13:48,958 –> 00:13:49,579
[david_shapiro]: over time

419
00:13:49,690 –> 00:13:49,913
[paul_tyler]: yes

420
00:13:49,829 –> 00:13:50,193
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

421
00:13:49,860 –> 00:13:51,482
[david_shapiro]: versus what’s the home appreciation

422
00:13:51,450 –> 00:13:52,620
[paul_tyler]: oh

423
00:13:51,743 –> 00:13:55,569
[david_shapiro]: our time and i mean that’s you
know that’s an unknown that you know each

424
00:13:55,629 –> 00:14:00,297
[david_shapiro]: person is going to have to answer
for for themselves so i think it becomes

425
00:14:01,078 –> 00:14:02,741
[david_shapiro]: it is it is a financial decision

426
00:14:02,759 –> 00:14:02,964
[ramsey_d_smith]: yah

427
00:14:03,883 –> 00:14:06,808
[david_shapiro]: but there are other elements you know
like just not wanting

428
00:14:06,629 –> 00:14:06,830
[ramsey_d_smith]: yah

429
00:14:06,868 –> 00:14:11,195
[david_shapiro]: to have a mortgage or the whole
estate thing but

430
00:14:11,190 –> 00:14:11,391
[paul_tyler]: yeah

431
00:14:11,275 –> 00:14:15,342
[david_shapiro]: it is it is a financial equation
that is not

432
00:14:15,809 –> 00:14:16,619
[ramsey_d_smith]: yah

433
00:14:15,883 –> 00:14:19,809
[david_shapiro]: it’s not perfect because we can’t you
know we can we can’t see that far

434
00:14:19,870 –> 00:14:20,010
[david_shapiro]: into

435
00:14:19,919 –> 00:14:20,123
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

436
00:14:20,050 –> 00:14:20,531
[david_shapiro]: the future

437
00:14:20,280 –> 00:14:21,000
[paul_tyler]: yeah

438
00:14:21,569 –> 00:14:21,877
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

439
00:14:21,813 –> 00:14:21,973
[david_shapiro]: and

440
00:14:22,140 –> 00:14:22,421
[paul_tyler]: yah

441
00:14:22,233 –> 00:14:22,634
[david_shapiro]: that’s one

442
00:14:22,559 –> 00:14:22,741
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

443
00:14:22,674 –> 00:14:23,496
[david_shapiro]: of the reasons that

444
00:14:23,908 –> 00:14:24,109
[paul_tyler]: yah

445
00:14:24,357 –> 00:14:28,724
[david_shapiro]: that i think that reverse mortgages you
know most of them are on an adjustable

446
00:14:28,824 –> 00:14:34,494
[david_shapiro]: rate because the way that their structure
you know with heckhams you really can’t get

447
00:14:34,554 –> 00:14:37,679
[david_shapiro]: a lot out if you’re doing a
lump sum in a fixed interest rate you

448
00:14:37,719 –> 00:14:41,265
[david_shapiro]: can get very little out of your
home so to the reverse mortgages are variable

449
00:14:41,325 –> 00:14:46,834
[david_shapiro]: rate and that adds a unknown that
you know that’s hard to quantify ours is

450
00:14:47,095 –> 00:14:48,918
[david_shapiro]: fully quantified but you’re right paul

451
00:14:48,839 –> 00:14:49,140
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

452
00:14:49,078 –> 00:14:49,158
[david_shapiro]: if

453
00:14:49,560 –> 00:14:49,862
[paul_tyler]: oh

454
00:14:49,799 –> 00:14:52,804
[david_shapiro]: if home price is appreciated higher than

455
00:14:52,650 –> 00:14:52,994
[ramsey_d_smith]: i like

456
00:14:53,045 –> 00:14:55,249
[david_shapiro]: we assume in our you

457
00:14:55,238 –> 00:14:55,259
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

458
00:14:55,289 –> 00:15:00,517
[david_shapiro]: know illustrations than you know the investor
but but they’re but they’re in lock step

459
00:15:00,678 –> 00:15:05,446
[david_shapiro]: right the you know the investor in
the home one are sharing that in lock

460
00:15:05,506 –> 00:15:11,976
[david_shapiro]: step so um i think that’s probably
the the safest way to look at it

461
00:15:12,059 –> 00:15:12,283
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

462
00:15:12,377 –> 00:15:15,142
[david_shapiro]: without being able to know what the
future is going to be

463
00:15:15,150 –> 00:15:15,395
[paul_tyler]: yeah

464
00:15:15,182 –> 00:15:15,342
[david_shapiro]: like

465
00:15:15,929 –> 00:15:17,692
[ramsey_d_smith]: i mean it just highlights you know
there’s their

466
00:15:18,420 –> 00:15:18,722
[paul_tyler]: oh

467
00:15:18,794 –> 00:15:23,521
[ramsey_d_smith]: there the are different complexities for each
of these solutions i mean they just fundamentally

468
00:15:23,541 –> 00:15:24,864
[ramsey_d_smith]: they have very different risk profiles

469
00:15:25,225 –> 00:15:25,407
[david_shapiro]: yes

470
00:15:25,284 –> 00:15:27,428
[ramsey_d_smith]: and that’s at the heart of your
your your

471
00:15:27,399 –> 00:15:27,420
[paul_tyler]: m

472
00:15:27,628 –> 00:15:28,433
[ramsey_d_smith]: your question paul

473
00:15:28,813 –> 00:15:29,533
[david_shapiro]: oh

474
00:15:29,903 –> 00:15:36,638
[ramsey_d_smith]: is yeah i in an environment where
home prices are flat to down and interest

475
00:15:36,698 –> 00:15:40,745
[ramsey_d_smith]: rates are spiking then the hakim loan
is kind of a tough call right

476
00:15:41,040 –> 00:15:41,242
[paul_tyler]: right

477
00:15:41,226 –> 00:15:41,833
[david_shapiro]: hm

478
00:15:42,448 –> 00:15:47,837
[ramsey_d_smith]: and an en iron ment where home
prices are expanding dramatically and interest rates are

479
00:15:47,917 –> 00:15:53,676
[ramsey_d_smith]: low then then he may be the
better one in some sense you got to

480
00:15:53,716 –> 00:15:53,756
[ramsey_d_smith]: do

481
00:15:54,750 –> 00:15:54,971
[paul_tyler]: yeah

482
00:15:54,958 –> 00:15:56,641
[ramsey_d_smith]: if you do a monte carlo analysis
but

483
00:15:56,643 –> 00:15:56,784
[david_shapiro]: yeah

484
00:15:57,162 –> 00:15:57,262
[ramsey_d_smith]: as

485
00:15:57,592 –> 00:15:58,320
[paul_tyler]: oh

486
00:15:57,803 –> 00:16:02,691
[ramsey_d_smith]: it seems to me like a fiduciary
advisor is they’re thinking about um providing

487
00:16:02,543 –> 00:16:02,563
[paul_tyler]: i

488
00:16:02,751 –> 00:16:05,316
[ramsey_d_smith]: a menu to their to their customers

489
00:16:05,160 –> 00:16:06,300
[paul_tyler]: oh

490
00:16:06,277 –> 00:16:09,943
[ramsey_d_smith]: in addition to sort of factoring in
those preferences that you were talking about david

491
00:16:09,960 –> 00:16:09,980
[paul_tyler]: m

492
00:16:10,003 –> 00:16:10,644
[ramsey_d_smith]: which is i

493
00:16:10,680 –> 00:16:11,820
[paul_tyler]: oh

494
00:16:10,745 –> 00:16:14,371
[ramsey_d_smith]: want to i want something that’s alone
versus now an equity share like that

495
00:16:14,463 –> 00:16:15,313
[david_shapiro]: yeah

496
00:16:14,591 –> 00:16:17,015
[ramsey_d_smith]: that decision which may be is much
sort of

497
00:16:17,040 –> 00:16:17,383
[paul_tyler]: oh

498
00:16:17,055 –> 00:16:18,117
[ramsey_d_smith]: a personal preference thing

499
00:16:18,420 –> 00:16:18,684
[paul_tyler]: oh

500
00:16:19,709 –> 00:16:23,956
[ramsey_d_smith]: addition to this notion of well what
is the risk propel i want to have

501
00:16:24,036 –> 00:16:26,981
[ramsey_d_smith]: vcvfthis house you know over the course
of the next ten or fifteen twenty years

502
00:16:27,061 –> 00:16:30,547
[ramsey_d_smith]: so it’s look i think there need
to be more answers like i think i

503
00:16:30,567 –> 00:16:31,388
[ramsey_d_smith]: think you need to have more

504
00:16:31,410 –> 00:16:31,430
[paul_tyler]: m

505
00:16:31,729 –> 00:16:36,633
[ramsey_d_smith]: ways to sort of peel this onion
effectively so i think it’s you know you’re

506
00:16:36,673 –> 00:16:40,697
[ramsey_d_smith]: bringing another practical solution which is very
interesting now i had

507
00:16:40,674 –> 00:16:40,716
[paul_tyler]: a

508
00:16:40,737 –> 00:16:44,031
[ramsey_d_smith]: a question about i had a question
about costs

509
00:16:43,890 –> 00:16:44,071
[paul_tyler]: oh

510
00:16:44,512 –> 00:16:47,937
[ramsey_d_smith]: about maintenance cost so one of the
other things that often seems that sort of

511
00:16:48,037 –> 00:16:51,884
[ramsey_d_smith]: not get discussed enough and where i
think sometimes people get into trouble you know

512
00:16:51,964 –> 00:16:55,790
[ramsey_d_smith]: with with their homes is that you
know when they get a reverse mortgage as

513
00:16:55,870 –> 00:16:57,974
[ramsey_d_smith]: they take money out right which is
great

514
00:16:57,715 –> 00:16:58,303
[david_shapiro]: hm

515
00:16:59,076 –> 00:17:03,463
[ramsey_d_smith]: but sometimes they get sometimes property taxes
and other sort of maintenance costs end up

516
00:17:03,523 –> 00:17:10,316
[ramsey_d_smith]: being the problem that comes up so
under your under your construct dohomoners still bear

517
00:17:10,436 –> 00:17:14,585
[ramsey_d_smith]: all of those all of those maintenance
of property tax costs et cetera or is

518
00:17:14,605 –> 00:17:15,647
[ramsey_d_smith]: there any sharing of that

519
00:17:16,033 –> 00:17:18,277
[david_shapiro]: no because we don’t go on title
we’re

520
00:17:18,120 –> 00:17:18,140
[paul_tyler]: m

521
00:17:18,317 –> 00:17:18,858
[david_shapiro]: not owners of

522
00:17:18,889 –> 00:17:19,012
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

523
00:17:18,918 –> 00:17:22,724
[david_shapiro]: the home so they pay the property
taxes you know they pay their insurance

524
00:17:23,399 –> 00:17:23,682
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

525
00:17:23,786 –> 00:17:25,709
[david_shapiro]: you know we do have provisions

526
00:17:26,040 –> 00:17:26,385
[paul_tyler]: oh

527
00:17:26,949 –> 00:17:27,131
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

528
00:17:27,192 –> 00:17:32,481
[david_shapiro]: where e can step in and if
they fall behind we can make what we

529
00:17:32,489 –> 00:17:32,509
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

530
00:17:32,541 –> 00:17:35,846
[david_shapiro]: call preservation payments and then we just
tack those on to

531
00:17:35,918 –> 00:17:35,939
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

532
00:17:35,926 –> 00:17:39,873
[david_shapiro]: the back end and you know they
are you know they are required to just

533
00:17:39,973 –> 00:17:44,501
[david_shapiro]: maintain the home it doesn’t require them
to improve the home um so if if

534
00:17:44,581 –> 00:17:47,786
[david_shapiro]: the home is in disrepair and they
haven’t improved it then there

535
00:17:47,802 –> 00:17:48,869
[ramsey_d_smith]: hm

536
00:17:47,846 –> 00:17:49,028
[david_shapiro]: is an adjustment at the

537
00:17:48,989 –> 00:17:49,232
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

538
00:17:49,068 –> 00:17:53,996
[david_shapiro]: back end you know to take into
account the cost of you know making

539
00:17:53,880 –> 00:17:54,101
[paul_tyler]: oh

540
00:17:54,056 –> 00:17:57,983
[david_shapiro]: that home you know up dating whatever
maintenance that needs to be done

541
00:17:58,269 –> 00:17:58,290
[paul_tyler]: m

542
00:17:58,424 –> 00:18:00,447
[david_shapiro]: that gets factored in but you

543
00:18:00,480 –> 00:18:00,722
[paul_tyler]: oh

544
00:18:00,487 –> 00:18:01,689
[david_shapiro]: know that that’s kind of the only

545
00:18:01,528 –> 00:18:01,650
[paul_tyler]: yeah

546
00:18:01,729 –> 00:18:03,152
[david_shapiro]: way that we can attack that

547
00:18:04,993 –> 00:18:05,113
[ramsey_d_smith]: so

548
00:18:05,180 –> 00:18:05,261
[paul_tyler]: ah

549
00:18:05,694 –> 00:18:10,622
[ramsey_d_smith]: another another another item that we talked
about of leading up to this conversation

550
00:18:10,537 –> 00:18:10,558
[david_shapiro]: m

551
00:18:10,743 –> 00:18:14,529
[ramsey_d_smith]: was who you’re going to de fund
this so the tire

552
00:18:14,522 –> 00:18:14,542
[paul_tyler]: i

553
00:18:14,629 –> 00:18:15,971
[ramsey_d_smith]: mortgage industry or also of

554
00:18:15,960 –> 00:18:16,224
[paul_tyler]: oh

555
00:18:16,011 –> 00:18:17,314
[ramsey_d_smith]: like ll call it the mortgage

556
00:18:17,323 –> 00:18:17,624
[david_shapiro]: oh

557
00:18:17,354 –> 00:18:21,761
[ramsey_d_smith]: of mortgage equivalent industry ultimately is funded
by pools of assets that can be insurance

558
00:18:21,801 –> 00:18:22,142
[ramsey_d_smith]: companies

559
00:18:22,132 –> 00:18:22,153
[david_shapiro]: m

560
00:18:22,182 –> 00:18:24,505
[ramsey_d_smith]: that can be institutional investors in some
cases it’s

561
00:18:24,420 –> 00:18:24,664
[paul_tyler]: oh

562
00:18:24,853 –> 00:18:24,873
[david_shapiro]: m

563
00:18:25,187 –> 00:18:31,497
[ramsey_d_smith]: venture capitalists it’s pension funds sovereign wealth
funds and now you are

564
00:18:31,440 –> 00:18:31,702
[paul_tyler]: oh

565
00:18:31,818 –> 00:18:35,063
[ramsey_d_smith]: you would mention that you’re building a
product that you think is

566
00:18:34,980 –> 00:18:35,242
[paul_tyler]: oh

567
00:18:35,604 –> 00:18:38,550
[ramsey_d_smith]: particularly interesting to sort of one set
of investors so tell

568
00:18:38,483 –> 00:18:38,603
[david_shapiro]: yeah

569
00:18:38,591 –> 00:18:39,054
[ramsey_d_smith]: us about that

570
00:18:39,011 –> 00:18:39,780
[paul_tyler]: yeah

571
00:18:39,244 –> 00:18:44,272
[david_shapiro]: yeah our product is specifically designed to
meet the needs of both the investor and

572
00:18:44,352 –> 00:18:49,681
[david_shapiro]: the home owner and our targeted investor
long term our insurance companies to hold this

573
00:18:49,741 –> 00:18:53,608
[david_shapiro]: on their balance and he rated security
so when we designed our product

574
00:18:53,249 –> 00:18:54,089
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

575
00:18:53,708 –> 00:18:58,756
[david_shapiro]: and you’ll note that in the example
there’s thirty percent equity on top right that

576
00:18:58,937 –> 00:19:00,860
[david_shapiro]: there’s thirty percent equity in the home

577
00:19:01,959 –> 00:19:01,980
[paul_tyler]: m

578
00:19:02,463 –> 00:19:08,112
[david_shapiro]: we needed to have that thirty per
cent cushion because when the rating agencies stress

579
00:19:08,272 –> 00:19:10,336
[david_shapiro]: this asset the asset back security

580
00:19:10,500 –> 00:19:10,721
[paul_tyler]: yah

581
00:19:10,917 –> 00:19:12,139
[david_shapiro]: the first thing they do is

582
00:19:12,089 –> 00:19:12,210
[paul_tyler]: yah

583
00:19:12,279 –> 00:19:14,883
[david_shapiro]: take an overnight drop in home prices
thirty

584
00:19:14,648 –> 00:19:14,669
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

585
00:19:14,923 –> 00:19:15,264
[david_shapiro]: per cent

586
00:19:15,210 –> 00:19:15,472
[paul_tyler]: oh

587
00:19:15,925 –> 00:19:16,326
[david_shapiro]: and then they

588
00:19:16,278 –> 00:19:16,419
[paul_tyler]: yeah

589
00:19:16,386 –> 00:19:18,349
[david_shapiro]: look at eight to twelve year recovery

590
00:19:17,910 –> 00:19:19,050
[paul_tyler]: oh yeah

591
00:19:18,950 –> 00:19:19,050
[david_shapiro]: so

592
00:19:19,740 –> 00:19:19,981
[paul_tyler]: oh

593
00:19:19,751 –> 00:19:22,095
[david_shapiro]: for us to get a rated security
we needed to have that

594
00:19:22,149 –> 00:19:22,170
[paul_tyler]: m

595
00:19:22,155 –> 00:19:25,621
[david_shapiro]: thirty per cent and that’s one of
the reasons that we have that piece

596
00:19:25,479 –> 00:19:25,500
[paul_tyler]: m

597
00:19:25,681 –> 00:19:31,531
[david_shapiro]: of the equity rum and you know
eventually you know when we create these asset

598
00:19:31,571 –> 00:19:35,838
[david_shapiro]: back securities insurance companies will be able
to hold those in you know the kinds

599
00:19:35,918 –> 00:19:40,105
[david_shapiro]: of volumes that we need to be
able to meet the demand from the consumer

600
00:19:40,346 –> 00:19:40,546
[david_shapiro]: i mean

601
00:19:41,078 –> 00:19:41,099
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

602
00:19:41,448 –> 00:19:42,209
[david_shapiro]: the residential

603
00:19:42,270 –> 00:19:43,440
[paul_tyler]: oh

604
00:19:42,589 –> 00:19:43,371
[david_shapiro]: residential homes

605
00:19:43,289 –> 00:19:43,612
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

606
00:19:43,431 –> 00:19:45,134
[david_shapiro]: in the country or what closing in
on

607
00:19:45,147 –> 00:19:45,308
[ramsey_d_smith]: right

608
00:19:45,935 –> 00:19:51,685
[david_shapiro]: forty trillion dollars thirty seven thirty eight
trillion dollars there’s twenty trillion dollars of twenty

609
00:19:52,005 –> 00:19:58,175
[david_shapiro]: twenty six trillion dollars now of equity
in homes so the massive scale of this

610
00:19:58,356 –> 00:20:03,044
[david_shapiro]: and and you consider the fact that
we’re only working through financial advice ers and

611
00:20:03,444 –> 00:20:07,731
[david_shapiro]: folks that have a trusted relationship and
they’re integrating the home into the

00:20:07,709 –> 00:20:07,953
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

613
00:20:07,771 –> 00:20:11,578
[david_shapiro]: financial planning process you know there’s we
have to have significant

614
00:20:11,549 –> 00:20:11,856
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

615
00:20:12,139 –> 00:20:15,965
[david_shapiro]: capital to come into the market and
the security ation s the only way to

616
00:20:16,025 –> 00:20:19,271
[david_shapiro]: do that and and that you guys

00:21:11,639 –> 00:21:11,659
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

656
00:21:12,539 –> 00:21:12,639
[david_shapiro]: so

657
00:21:13,500 –> 00:21:13,722
[paul_tyler]: yeah

658
00:21:14,062 –> 00:21:14,583
[david_shapiro]: i don’t know i’m

659
00:21:14,508 –> 00:21:14,729
[ramsey_d_smith]: right

660
00:21:14,603 –> 00:21:15,224
[david_shapiro]: going to feel bad

661
00:21:15,238 –> 00:21:15,360
[paul_tyler]: yeah

662
00:21:15,304 –> 00:21:18,069
[david_shapiro]: about that it does take time but
you know i think now

663
00:21:17,999 –> 00:21:18,323
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

664
00:21:18,209 –> 00:21:18,890
[david_shapiro]: we are within

665
00:21:19,417 –> 00:21:19,538
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

666
00:21:19,531 –> 00:21:24,820
[david_shapiro]: within a year maybe a little less
than that three quarters of a year to

667
00:21:24,880 –> 00:21:31,371
[david_shapiro]: get a rated security out and there
have been three securitizations of our competitors products

668
00:21:31,992 –> 00:21:36,259
[david_shapiro]: they haven’t been rated nor can they
be rated the design of our competitors products

669
00:21:36,339 –> 00:21:41,965
[david_shapiro]: don’t allow for securities tion um either
either they have a ten year term on

670
00:21:42,026 –> 00:21:44,147
[david_shapiro]: them that’s problematic to the rating agencies

671
00:21:44,069 –> 00:21:44,229
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

672
00:21:44,408 –> 00:21:46,509
[david_shapiro]: or they’re based on home price

673
00:21:46,409 –> 00:21:46,592
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

674
00:21:46,589 –> 00:21:48,451
[david_shapiro]: appreciation and a shock loss you

675
00:21:48,402 –> 00:21:48,959
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

676
00:21:48,511 –> 00:21:53,307
[david_shapiro]: know would blow it out so we
feel that we’re perfectly positioned to be the

677
00:21:53,348 –> 00:21:58,656
[david_shapiro]: leaders in a rated security and that’s
why we’re working you know primarily with insurance

678
00:21:58,696 –> 00:21:59,498
[david_shapiro]: companies and

679
00:21:59,610 –> 00:21:59,893
[paul_tyler]: oh

680
00:21:59,738 –> 00:22:03,665
[david_shapiro]: with the hedge fund the private equity
fun that own insurance

681
00:22:03,540 –> 00:22:03,560
[paul_tyler]: m

682
00:22:03,725 –> 00:22:07,191
[david_shapiro]: companies because they’re the best partners for
us to achieve that

683
00:22:08,540 –> 00:22:13,509
[paul_tyler]: yeah well capital charges are can be
very consequential as you know we

684
00:22:13,889 –> 00:22:14,172
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

685
00:22:14,170 –> 00:22:18,657
[paul_tyler]: at a prior company we we put
a lot of effort into trying to partner

686
00:22:18,697 –> 00:22:23,746
[paul_tyler]: with a company down you know so
stepping in and providing jumbo

687
00:22:23,498 –> 00:22:23,519
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

688
00:22:24,006 –> 00:22:24,787
[paul_tyler]: reverse mortgages

689
00:22:24,613 –> 00:22:24,633
[david_shapiro]: m

690
00:22:24,968 –> 00:22:25,789
[paul_tyler]: right on hecham

691
00:22:25,563 –> 00:22:25,684
[david_shapiro]: yeah

692
00:22:26,871 –> 00:22:32,180
[paul_tyler]: loans and the yell look right now
compared to rams investing in a

693
00:22:32,219 –> 00:22:32,482
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

694
00:22:32,520 –> 00:22:34,444
[paul_tyler]: corporate bonds the challenge

695
00:22:34,242 –> 00:22:34,445
[ramsey_d_smith]: like

696
00:22:34,484 –> 00:22:35,365
[paul_tyler]: though david was the

697
00:22:35,669 –> 00:22:36,117
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

698
00:22:36,126 –> 00:22:38,190
[paul_tyler]: was a capital charge and i can’t
remember what the rating

699
00:22:38,699 –> 00:22:38,960
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

700
00:22:39,071 –> 00:22:41,996
[paul_tyler]: you know was hat were determined but
it was enough to sort of take the

701
00:22:42,036 –> 00:22:43,619
[paul_tyler]: yield down like below

702
00:22:44,288 –> 00:22:44,309
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

703
00:22:44,323 –> 00:22:44,833
[david_shapiro]: oh

704
00:22:44,500 –> 00:22:51,612
[paul_tyler]: quickly below corporate bonds do you have
any indication that you’ll end up um you’ll

705
00:22:51,652 –> 00:22:56,019
[paul_tyler]: be rated higher on the n c
scale and sort

706
00:22:56,129 –> 00:22:56,469
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

707
00:22:57,064 –> 00:23:00,417
[paul_tyler]: a reverse mortgage sitting on a insurance
balance sheet

708
00:23:00,733 –> 00:23:01,875
[david_shapiro]: well are you talking about

709
00:23:02,175 –> 00:23:02,195
[ramsey_d_smith]: a

710
00:23:02,296 –> 00:23:05,761
[david_shapiro]: scenario where the insurance company so that’s
a jumbo

711
00:23:05,559 –> 00:23:05,580
[paul_tyler]: m

712
00:23:05,861 –> 00:23:07,664
[david_shapiro]: so they would be holding those on
their balance seat

713
00:23:07,590 –> 00:23:08,550
[paul_tyler]: oh

714
00:23:07,684 –> 00:23:09,147
[david_shapiro]: those aren’t securitized right they were

715
00:23:09,150 –> 00:23:09,210
[paul_tyler]: no

716
00:23:09,167 –> 00:23:09,528
[david_shapiro]: just holding

717
00:23:09,391 –> 00:23:09,571
[paul_tyler]: not

718
00:23:09,568 –> 00:23:09,688
[david_shapiro]: him on

719
00:23:09,692 –> 00:23:09,832
[paul_tyler]: not

720
00:23:09,728 –> 00:23:10,109
[david_shapiro]: their balance

721
00:23:09,933 –> 00:23:10,736
[paul_tyler]: securitized

722
00:23:10,149 –> 00:23:10,269
[david_shapiro]: sheet

723
00:23:10,418 –> 00:23:10,439
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

724
00:23:10,930 –> 00:23:11,090
[david_shapiro]: yeah

725
00:23:10,997 –> 00:23:11,198
[paul_tyler]: right

726
00:23:11,250 –> 00:23:11,351
[david_shapiro]: so

727
00:23:11,459 –> 00:23:11,640
[paul_tyler]: hold

728
00:23:11,571 –> 00:23:11,831
[david_shapiro]: so the

729
00:23:11,800 –> 00:23:12,041
[paul_tyler]: holding

730
00:23:11,912 –> 00:23:12,252
[david_shapiro]: surplus

731
00:23:12,082 –> 00:23:12,262
[paul_tyler]: these

732
00:23:12,292 –> 00:23:12,493
[david_shapiro]: strain

733
00:23:12,463 –> 00:23:12,624
[paul_tyler]: yeah

734
00:23:12,573 –> 00:23:15,277
[david_shapiro]: for that was probably fifteen percent right

735
00:23:15,080 –> 00:23:16,069
[paul_tyler]: ah that sounds

736
00:23:15,878 –> 00:23:16,199
[david_shapiro]: um

737
00:23:16,129 –> 00:23:16,634
[paul_tyler]: about right

738
00:23:17,080 –> 00:23:17,240
[david_shapiro]: yeah

739
00:23:17,520 –> 00:23:17,761
[paul_tyler]: oh

740
00:23:17,738 –> 00:23:17,759
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

741
00:23:18,282 –> 00:23:22,249
[david_shapiro]: and so that and that’s problematic with
the asset back

742
00:23:22,230 –> 00:23:22,394
[paul_tyler]: yes

743
00:23:22,329 –> 00:23:24,212
[david_shapiro]: security we think that we’re going to
get

744
00:23:24,570 –> 00:23:24,936
[paul_tyler]: oh

745
00:23:25,379 –> 00:23:25,664
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

746
00:23:25,695 –> 00:23:26,175
[david_shapiro]: senior

747
00:23:27,209 –> 00:23:28,019
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

748
00:23:27,898 –> 00:23:29,561
[david_shapiro]: a senior a at

749
00:23:30,719 –> 00:23:30,962
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

750
00:23:31,043 –> 00:23:32,245
[david_shapiro]: single a or a triple

751
00:23:32,197 –> 00:23:32,318
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

752
00:23:32,306 –> 00:23:33,728
[david_shapiro]: b at the worst so

753
00:23:33,719 –> 00:23:33,980
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

754
00:23:33,870 –> 00:23:34,132
[paul_tyler]: oh

755
00:23:33,888 –> 00:23:35,972
[david_shapiro]: it’s a whole different you know it’s
in an

756
00:23:35,948 –> 00:23:36,090
[paul_tyler]: yeah

757
00:23:36,089 –> 00:23:36,109
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

758
00:23:36,112 –> 00:23:40,101
[david_shapiro]: ice it’s an ice to it’s the
surplus trains going to be a lot less

759
00:23:41,379 –> 00:23:44,545
[ramsey_d_smith]: who holds the rest of it so
you’ve got right the senior

760
00:23:44,370 –> 00:23:46,009
[paul_tyler]: yeah

761
00:23:44,665 –> 00:23:45,266
[ramsey_d_smith]: trunch is what

762
00:23:45,303 –> 00:23:45,445
[david_shapiro]: yeah

763
00:23:45,326 –> 00:23:46,768
[ramsey_d_smith]: the insurance companies are going to buy

764
00:23:47,183 –> 00:23:47,325
[david_shapiro]: yeah

765
00:23:47,449 –> 00:23:48,772
[ramsey_d_smith]: and then you’re going to have you
know

766
00:23:49,020 –> 00:23:49,243
[paul_tyler]: oh

767
00:23:49,312 –> 00:23:52,578
[ramsey_d_smith]: lower trenches and i guess maybe like
an equity trunch or something equivalent

768
00:23:52,483 –> 00:23:52,584
[david_shapiro]: oh

769
00:23:52,980 –> 00:23:53,242
[paul_tyler]: oh

770
00:23:53,079 –> 00:23:56,645
[ramsey_d_smith]: sort of thinking of it in the
framework of a like a collateral ized dead

771
00:23:56,673 –> 00:23:56,813
[david_shapiro]: yeah

772
00:23:56,745 –> 00:23:57,266
[ramsey_d_smith]: obligation

773
00:23:57,456 –> 00:23:58,379
[david_shapiro]: yeah yeah exactly

774
00:23:59,269 –> 00:24:03,656
[ramsey_d_smith]: who are the who’s going to retain
the know all the risk all the risky

775
00:24:03,696 –> 00:24:04,598
[ramsey_d_smith]: or trenches do you think

776
00:24:04,719 –> 00:24:04,740
[paul_tyler]: m

777
00:24:04,999 –> 00:24:06,734
[ramsey_d_smith]: do you see his target audience for
those

778
00:24:06,743 –> 00:24:06,883
[david_shapiro]: well

779
00:24:07,020 –> 00:24:07,261
[paul_tyler]: oh

780
00:24:07,063 –> 00:24:10,128
[david_shapiro]: that’s where i think the hedge funds
come in the you know the hedge

781
00:24:10,092 –> 00:24:10,619
[ramsey_d_smith]: hm

782
00:24:10,168 –> 00:24:11,691
[david_shapiro]: funds come in insurance

783
00:24:11,550 –> 00:24:11,791
[paul_tyler]: oh

784
00:24:11,751 –> 00:24:13,514
[david_shapiro]: companies that have other arms

785
00:24:13,470 –> 00:24:13,691
[paul_tyler]: oh

786
00:24:13,955 –> 00:24:17,000
[david_shapiro]: that you know a lot of insurance
companies want to buy the a b vertical

787
00:24:16,829 –> 00:24:17,133
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

788
00:24:18,422 –> 00:24:18,662
[david_shapiro]: and then

789
00:24:18,728 –> 00:24:18,749
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

790
00:24:18,863 –> 00:24:20,944
[david_shapiro]: got you now then you’ve got the
equity trench which is

791
00:24:20,909 –> 00:24:21,539
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

792
00:24:21,085 –> 00:24:23,847
[david_shapiro]: you know when we do them you
know we’ll be we’ll be holding the equity

793
00:24:24,027 –> 00:24:26,189
[david_shapiro]: trench so but

794
00:24:26,372 –> 00:24:26,575
[ramsey_d_smith]: got

795
00:24:26,409 –> 00:24:26,609
[david_shapiro]: you know

796
00:24:26,635 –> 00:24:26,696
[ramsey_d_smith]: it

797
00:24:26,690 –> 00:24:29,252
[david_shapiro]: lots of interest in the a and
the b

798
00:24:30,000 –> 00:24:30,263
[paul_tyler]: yeah

799
00:24:31,141 –> 00:24:31,262
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

800
00:24:31,981 –> 00:24:32,485
[paul_tyler]: interesting

801
00:24:32,329 –> 00:24:36,636
[ramsey_d_smith]: so by the way i think i’m
just want to make a circle back to

802
00:24:37,337 –> 00:24:41,344
[ramsey_d_smith]: your description of this structure earlier on
because now i think took me a while

803
00:24:41,364 –> 00:24:42,746
[ramsey_d_smith]: but i think i got it right
so

804
00:24:43,008 –> 00:24:43,573
[david_shapiro]: hm

805
00:24:43,527 –> 00:24:45,811
[ramsey_d_smith]: let’s go back to example of the

806
00:24:45,789 –> 00:24:45,810
[paul_tyler]: m

807
00:24:47,013 –> 00:24:48,676
[ramsey_d_smith]: it’s a it’s a it’s a million
dollar loan

808
00:24:49,325 –> 00:24:49,345
[david_shapiro]: h

809
00:24:49,437 –> 00:24:50,098
[ramsey_d_smith]: right and

810
00:24:50,032 –> 00:24:50,893
[david_shapiro]: m yeah

811
00:24:50,439 –> 00:24:51,521
[ramsey_d_smith]: you you your

812
00:24:51,510 –> 00:24:51,712
[paul_tyler]: oh

813
00:24:51,581 –> 00:24:54,606
[ramsey_d_smith]: organization puts up forty per cent so
you you give

814
00:24:54,510 –> 00:24:54,652
[paul_tyler]: oh

815
00:24:54,726 –> 00:24:57,210
[ramsey_d_smith]: four hundred thousand dollars to the participant

816
00:24:57,566 –> 00:24:58,153
[david_shapiro]: hm

817
00:24:57,750 –> 00:24:58,032
[paul_tyler]: oh

818
00:24:57,911 –> 00:25:03,361
[ramsey_d_smith]: right so if the let’s let’s use
two scenarios one scenario is the value of

819
00:25:03,381 –> 00:25:04,042
[ramsey_d_smith]: the house doubles

820
00:25:04,050 –> 00:25:04,354
[paul_tyler]: oh

821
00:25:04,663 –> 00:25:06,105
[ramsey_d_smith]: over the course of the ensuing years

822
00:25:06,688 –> 00:25:07,243
[david_shapiro]: hm

823
00:25:06,826 –> 00:25:07,047
[ramsey_d_smith]: so it

824
00:25:07,050 –> 00:25:07,311
[paul_tyler]: oh

825
00:25:07,107 –> 00:25:08,790
[ramsey_d_smith]: goes to two million dollars so then

826
00:25:09,090 –> 00:25:09,313
[paul_tyler]: oh

827
00:25:09,230 –> 00:25:10,292
[ramsey_d_smith]: you will you will then

828
00:25:10,162 –> 00:25:10,183
[david_shapiro]: m

829
00:25:10,352 –> 00:25:16,122
[ramsey_d_smith]: get back if i’m correct you’ll get
back you’ll get back

830
00:25:15,960 –> 00:25:16,122
[paul_tyler]: yeah

831
00:25:16,522 –> 00:25:19,988
[ramsey_d_smith]: your original four hundred thousand dollars plus
fifty per

832
00:25:20,010 –> 00:25:20,237
[paul_tyler]: oh

833
00:25:20,028 –> 00:25:21,651
[ramsey_d_smith]: cent the price appreciation so

834
00:25:22,260 –> 00:25:22,521
[paul_tyler]: oh

835
00:25:22,272 –> 00:25:25,416
[ramsey_d_smith]: equify would get nine hundred thousand dollars
back in that scenario is that

836
00:25:25,815 –> 00:25:26,015
[david_shapiro]: well

837
00:25:25,857 –> 00:25:26,257
[ramsey_d_smith]: is that right

838
00:25:26,115 –> 00:25:26,416
[david_shapiro]: now so

839
00:25:26,340 –> 00:25:26,440
[paul_tyler]: ye

840
00:25:26,656 –> 00:25:26,756
[david_shapiro]: so

841
00:25:26,999 –> 00:25:27,019
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

842
00:25:27,037 –> 00:25:29,240
[david_shapiro]: think of it think of it the
house sells

843
00:25:29,150 –> 00:25:29,230
[ramsey_d_smith]: no

844
00:25:29,441 –> 00:25:31,604
[david_shapiro]: right so we know with the ending
value of the houses

845
00:25:31,720 –> 00:25:31,881
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

846
00:25:32,105 –> 00:25:34,649
[david_shapiro]: and then the closing statements the easiest
way to look at that so

847
00:25:34,659 –> 00:25:34,680
[paul_tyler]: m

848
00:25:34,750 –> 00:25:35,210
[david_shapiro]: the closing

849
00:25:34,958 –> 00:25:35,389
[ramsey_d_smith]: m yeah

850
00:25:35,270 –> 00:25:37,094
[david_shapiro]: statement we get back r four

851
00:25:38,116 –> 00:25:38,236
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

852
00:25:38,396 –> 00:25:39,679
[david_shapiro]: the home owner gets

853
00:25:39,630 –> 00:25:40,429
[paul_tyler]: yea

854
00:25:39,920 –> 00:25:43,617
[david_shapiro]: three hundred right because they’re protected

855
00:25:43,481 –> 00:25:43,665
[ramsey_d_smith]: right

856
00:25:43,718 –> 00:25:47,631
[david_shapiro]: equity we don’t share in and anything
above that is split fifty fifty

857
00:25:50,379 –> 00:25:56,547
[ramsey_d_smith]: okay so even though it was a
million dollar was a million dollar house but

858
00:25:56,687 –> 00:26:02,811
[ramsey_d_smith]: you’re of the original principle amount you
will have a claim on on seven hundred

859
00:26:02,851 –> 00:26:04,416
[ramsey_d_smith]: thousand dollars worth then

860
00:26:06,103 –> 00:26:07,451
[david_shapiro]: um nope

861
00:26:07,620 –> 00:26:07,781
[paul_tyler]: well

862
00:26:07,712 –> 00:26:07,853
[david_shapiro]: the

863
00:26:07,861 –> 00:26:07,921
[paul_tyler]: no

864
00:26:08,074 –> 00:26:08,295
[david_shapiro]: home

865
00:26:08,161 –> 00:26:10,265
[paul_tyler]: no ud be the appreciation right so

866
00:26:10,559 –> 00:26:10,781
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

867
00:26:10,565 –> 00:26:10,686
[paul_tyler]: tell

868
00:26:10,623 –> 00:26:11,533
[david_shapiro]: yeah

869
00:26:10,746 –> 00:26:11,747
[paul_tyler]: me if i’m getting it right so

870
00:26:12,003 –> 00:26:12,763
[david_shapiro]: yeah

871
00:26:12,288 –> 00:26:16,275
[paul_tyler]: the million dollar house goes to two
million ramsey see if i understand this

872
00:26:16,252 –> 00:26:16,413
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

873
00:26:16,335 –> 00:26:22,445
[paul_tyler]: so so you keep three hundred i
was in david you get you split fifty

874
00:26:22,545 –> 00:26:25,771
[paul_tyler]: fifty of the hundred the million that
went up is that right so you

875
00:26:25,741 –> 00:26:25,821
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

876
00:26:25,791 –> 00:26:27,073
[paul_tyler]: would get half a million is that

877
00:26:27,029 –> 00:26:27,869
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

878
00:26:27,133 –> 00:26:30,018
[paul_tyler]: right or am i wrong here see
how i understood

879
00:26:30,069 –> 00:26:30,229
[ramsey_d_smith]: that’s

880
00:26:30,078 –> 00:26:30,218
[paul_tyler]: this

881
00:26:30,249 –> 00:26:30,349
[ramsey_d_smith]: what

882
00:26:30,373 –> 00:26:30,656
[david_shapiro]: oh

883
00:26:30,710 –> 00:26:32,151
[ramsey_d_smith]: that was my original version so that’s

884
00:26:32,070 –> 00:26:32,312
[paul_tyler]: okay

885
00:26:32,211 –> 00:26:35,735
[ramsey_d_smith]: like that’s nine hundred thousand bucks on
the up side in the upside scenario

886
00:26:36,514 –> 00:26:36,655
[david_shapiro]: yeah

887
00:26:36,736 –> 00:26:38,498
[ramsey_d_smith]: but it sounds like it’s more complicated
than that

888
00:26:38,743 –> 00:26:40,354
[david_shapiro]: yeah no it’s it’s

889
00:26:41,044 –> 00:26:41,206
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

890
00:26:41,436 –> 00:26:43,038
[david_shapiro]: now so all right so the

891
00:26:43,200 –> 00:26:43,489
[paul_tyler]: oh

892
00:26:43,539 –> 00:26:44,441
[david_shapiro]: math isn’t you know

893
00:26:45,809 –> 00:26:46,416
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

894
00:26:45,930 –> 00:26:46,233
[paul_tyler]: oh

895
00:26:45,963 –> 00:26:47,225
[david_shapiro]: i’ll turn it over in my c

896
00:26:47,348 –> 00:26:47,369
[ramsey_d_smith]: h

897
00:26:47,405 –> 00:26:48,668
[david_shapiro]: i o at some point in time

898
00:26:48,540 –> 00:26:48,560
[paul_tyler]: m

899
00:26:48,748 –> 00:26:48,868
[david_shapiro]: he’s

900
00:26:48,759 –> 00:26:48,840
[ramsey_d_smith]: no

901
00:26:48,908 –> 00:26:48,928
[david_shapiro]: a

902
00:26:48,921 –> 00:26:49,162
[ramsey_d_smith]: worries

903
00:26:48,968 –> 00:26:49,489
[david_shapiro]: lot better at

904
00:26:49,500 –> 00:26:50,430
[paul_tyler]: yah

905
00:26:49,529 –> 00:26:50,230
[david_shapiro]: that so

906
00:26:51,179 –> 00:26:51,504
[ramsey_d_smith]: yah

907
00:26:51,794 –> 00:26:53,768
[david_shapiro]: so it went from what one million
to two million

908
00:26:53,670 –> 00:26:54,676
[paul_tyler]: one million to two million

909
00:26:54,449 –> 00:26:54,910
[ramsey_d_smith]: one million to

910
00:26:54,963 –> 00:26:55,124
[david_shapiro]: yeah

911
00:26:54,970 –> 00:26:55,450
[ramsey_d_smith]: two million

912
00:26:55,400 –> 00:26:55,541
[paul_tyler]: yeah

913
00:26:55,445 –> 00:26:56,188
[david_shapiro]: okay all right

914
00:26:56,072 –> 00:26:57,854
[ramsey_d_smith]: they got four hundred thousand dollars up
front

915
00:26:58,204 –> 00:26:58,348
[david_shapiro]: yep

916
00:26:58,536 –> 00:26:59,097
[ramsey_d_smith]: and now there’s

917
00:26:59,113 –> 00:27:00,343
[david_shapiro]: oh

918
00:26:59,277 –> 00:27:02,602
[ramsey_d_smith]: there’s a there’s a one million dollar
gain so in my view

919
00:27:02,743 –> 00:27:03,167
[david_shapiro]: oh

920
00:27:02,823 –> 00:27:05,888
[ramsey_d_smith]: as i understand it the one million
dollar game is split fifty fifty between you

921
00:27:05,948 –> 00:27:06,733
[ramsey_d_smith]: and the home on a right

922
00:27:06,973 –> 00:27:13,372
[david_shapiro]: yeah so the two millions now down
to one six after we get our money

923
00:27:13,472 –> 00:27:13,692
[david_shapiro]: back

924
00:27:13,590 –> 00:27:13,772
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

925
00:27:14,033 –> 00:27:14,233
[david_shapiro]: right

926
00:27:14,679 –> 00:27:14,901
[ramsey_d_smith]: okay

927
00:27:15,235 –> 00:27:15,335
[david_shapiro]: and

928
00:27:15,312 –> 00:27:15,536
[paul_tyler]: okay

929
00:27:15,535 –> 00:27:19,002
[david_shapiro]: then three hundred goes to the home
owners down to one one

930
00:27:20,015 –> 00:27:20,258
[ramsey_d_smith]: okay

931
00:27:20,713 –> 00:27:21,718
[david_shapiro]: and that’s what’s split

932
00:27:22,440 –> 00:27:25,367
[paul_tyler]: okay all right so we’re close we
were

933
00:27:25,353 –> 00:27:25,474
[david_shapiro]: yeah

934
00:27:25,427 –> 00:27:25,708
[paul_tyler]: close

935
00:27:26,653 –> 00:27:26,915
[david_shapiro]: oh

936
00:27:26,800 –> 00:27:35,655
[paul_tyler]: so that is potentially right this is
where potentially rising super rising home environment ramsey

937
00:27:35,773 –> 00:27:35,976
[david_shapiro]: oh

938
00:27:36,456 –> 00:27:37,357
[paul_tyler]: maybe i go with a home

939
00:27:37,589 –> 00:27:37,930
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

940
00:27:37,858 –> 00:27:38,580
[paul_tyler]: the hecham right

941
00:27:39,238 –> 00:27:39,378
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

942
00:27:39,741 –> 00:27:40,122
[paul_tyler]: it feels

943
00:27:39,949 –> 00:27:40,111
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

944
00:27:40,643 –> 00:27:40,764
[david_shapiro]: yeah

945
00:27:40,663 –> 00:27:43,828
[paul_tyler]: if my goal is to leave money
that i will never see

946
00:27:45,009 –> 00:27:45,132
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

947
00:27:45,374 –> 00:27:45,841
[paul_tyler]: my kids

948
00:27:46,193 –> 00:27:50,199
[david_shapiro]: yeah i think that the way we
look at it is we just look at

949
00:27:50,240 –> 00:27:50,841
[david_shapiro]: historical

950
00:27:50,460 –> 00:27:50,480
[paul_tyler]: m

951
00:27:51,201 –> 00:27:55,248
[david_shapiro]: you know we look at you know
look back on twenty years of home price

952
00:27:55,328 –> 00:27:56,029
[david_shapiro]: appreciation

953
00:27:55,548 –> 00:27:55,629
[paul_tyler]: what

954
00:27:56,209 –> 00:27:57,692
[david_shapiro]: you know the last

955
00:27:57,700 –> 00:27:57,760
[paul_tyler]: it

956
00:27:57,772 –> 00:27:57,992
[david_shapiro]: five

957
00:27:57,840 –> 00:27:57,981
[paul_tyler]: was

958
00:27:58,033 –> 00:28:01,458
[david_shapiro]: years are going to level out and
who knows what’s going to happen

959
00:28:01,409 –> 00:28:01,589
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

960
00:28:01,518 –> 00:28:05,184
[david_shapiro]: in the future but i mean that’s
the best way for us to analyze anything

961
00:28:05,245 –> 00:28:05,745
[david_shapiro]: is look at where

962
00:28:05,640 –> 00:28:05,863
[paul_tyler]: oh

963
00:28:05,805 –> 00:28:10,153
[david_shapiro]: interest rates have been look at where
home price appreciation has been and then o

964
00:28:10,294 –> 00:28:13,249
[david_shapiro]: make our own view of take our
own view of what the forward looking is

965
00:28:14,211 –> 00:28:14,591
[paul_tyler]: okay well

966
00:28:14,793 –> 00:28:14,914
[david_shapiro]: yeah

967
00:28:14,852 –> 00:28:16,394

[ramsey_d_smith]: no

1038
00:29:57,609 –> 00:30:02,657
[david_shapiro]: and what we’ve seen the trend over
the last two quarters is that the urban

1039
00:30:02,917 –> 00:30:09,228
[david_shapiro]: areas are still holding at very loud
forward looking h p s like we we

1040
00:30:09,368 –> 00:30:12,273
[david_shapiro]: cap our assumption at four per cent
but but

1041
00:30:12,232 –> 00:30:12,435
[ramsey_d_smith]: yes

1042
00:30:12,553 –> 00:30:13,735
[david_shapiro]: what we’re finding is there’s

1043
00:30:13,678 –> 00:30:13,779
[paul_tyler]: it

1044
00:30:13,796 –> 00:30:19,405
[david_shapiro]: still areas that are six eight you
know whatever the rural areas are the areas

1045
00:30:19,505 –> 00:30:20,326
[david_shapiro]: that have softened

1046
00:30:20,370 –> 00:30:21,060
[paul_tyler]: oh

1047
00:30:20,647 –> 00:30:26,637
[david_shapiro]: and they’ve dropped you know anywhere from
you know half a per cent to one

1048
00:30:26,677 –> 00:30:27,038
[david_shapiro]: and a half

1049
00:30:26,910 –> 00:30:27,131
[paul_tyler]: yes

1050
00:30:27,118 –> 00:30:30,904

flight that pandemic led

the rural areas are the ones that are

1057
00:30:39,639 –> 00:30:45,749
[david_shapiro]: suffering right now but now long term

[david_shapiro]: yeah you know the answer is

1093
00:31:36,638 –> 00:31:36,659
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

1094
00:31:37,712 –> 00:31:43,802
[david_shapiro]: the question is not one that we’re
going to answer because it’s the investor right

1095
00:31:44,363 –> 00:31:47,809
[david_shapiro]: so you know when we talk to
investors and you know

1096
00:31:47,849 –> 00:31:48,899
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

1097
00:31:48,129 –> 00:31:51,715
[david_shapiro]: to finance our product you know we
can’t use warehouse financing

1098
00:31:51,293 –> 00:31:51,313
[ramsey_d_smith]: i

1099
00:31:51,755 –> 00:31:54,981
[david_shapiro]: because there’s no interest rate on our
product right there’s no cash flows on the

1100
00:31:55,021 –> 00:31:55,341
[david_shapiro]: product

1101
00:31:55,529 –> 00:31:55,870
[ramsey_d_smith]: yes

1102
00:31:55,722 –> 00:31:57,886
[david_shapiro]: so we we what’s forward flow agreements
which is

1103
00:31:57,940 –> 00:31:58,041
[ramsey_d_smith]: ah

1104
00:31:59,248 –> 00:32:00,770
[david_shapiro]: financing where an

1105
00:32:00,840 –> 00:32:00,963
[paul_tyler]: ye

1106
00:32:00,850 –> 00:32:01,331
[david_shapiro]: investor

1107
00:32:01,079 –> 00:32:01,829
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

1108
00:32:01,451 –> 00:32:04,877
[david_shapiro]: advances us the money to fund the
equity

1109
00:32:04,830 –> 00:32:06,579
[paul_tyler]: oh

1110
00:32:05,358 –> 00:32:09,505
[david_shapiro]: and then we sell that asset back
to them so you know we can provide

1111
00:32:09,525 –> 00:32:10,967
[david_shapiro]: them guidance but they’re the

1112
00:32:10,950 –> 00:32:11,030
[paul_tyler]: and

1113
00:32:11,067 –> 00:32:16,537
[david_shapiro]: ones like there’s one insurance company that
you know just is scared to death that

1114
00:32:16,737 –> 00:32:22,286
[david_shapiro]: california is going to burn and doesn’t
want more then like a ten percent exposure

1115
00:32:22,346 –> 00:32:22,947
[david_shapiro]: to california

1116
00:32:22,769 –> 00:32:23,849
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

1117
00:32:23,007 –> 00:32:27,435
[david_shapiro]: real estate so we just have to
fill you know if we were to take

1118
00:32:27,515 –> 00:32:32,944
[david_shapiro]: capital from them we’d have a much
smaller box to fill so it’s clearly a

1119
00:32:32,984 –> 00:32:33,405
[david_shapiro]: problem

1120
00:32:33,540 –> 00:32:34,920
[paul_tyler]: yeah

1121
00:32:34,387 –> 00:32:39,036
[david_shapiro]: and the investors are the ones that
are going to define you know very specifically

1122
00:32:39,337 –> 00:32:41,200
[david_shapiro]: how how much of a concern that

1123
00:32:41,159 –> 00:32:41,382
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

1124
00:32:41,261 –> 00:32:41,721
[david_shapiro]: is to them

1125
00:32:43,439 –> 00:32:47,085
[ramsey_d_smith]: so i mean as i listened to
you it’s i mean it’s remarkable you you’re

1126
00:32:47,145 –> 00:32:49,469
[ramsey_d_smith]: serving many masters here right you’ve got

1127
00:32:49,274 –> 00:32:49,417
[david_shapiro]: yeah

1128
00:32:50,110 –> 00:32:55,849
[ramsey_d_smith]: you’ve got the consumer you have you’re
certainly going to have regulators and

1129
00:32:56,229 –> 00:32:56,250
[paul_tyler]: m

1130
00:32:56,593 –> 00:32:56,854
[david_shapiro]: oh

1131
00:32:56,819 –> 00:33:02,168
[ramsey_d_smith]: and you have you have investors and
you have lots of different types of investors

1132
00:33:02,508 –> 00:33:07,476
[ramsey_d_smith]: the person that’s going to buy the
top conches the insurance company and be very

1133
00:33:07,516 –> 00:33:09,940
[ramsey_d_smith]: differ than the people that buy by
the risk of your trenches

1134
00:33:10,446 –> 00:33:10,993
[david_shapiro]: hm

1135
00:33:10,521 –> 00:33:15,009
[ramsey_d_smith]: when you talk about what you just
said there that that some some of those

1136
00:33:15,209 –> 00:33:18,835
[ramsey_d_smith]: some of those investors are going to
want to kind of pass out certain certain

1137
00:33:18,895 –> 00:33:19,957
[ramsey_d_smith]: regions and things like that

1138
00:33:20,093 –> 00:33:20,215
[david_shapiro]: yeah

1139
00:33:20,340 –> 00:33:20,645
[paul_tyler]: oh

1140
00:33:20,418 –> 00:33:20,438
[ramsey_d_smith]: i

1141
00:33:20,479 –> 00:33:20,601
[david_shapiro]: yeah

1142
00:33:20,498 –> 00:33:23,643
[ramsey_d_smith]: mean it becomes a you know in
some sense it becomes a very

1143
00:33:23,608 –> 00:33:23,629
[paul_tyler]: a

1144
00:33:23,723 –> 00:33:25,526
[ramsey_d_smith]: sort of complicated puzzle it’s

1145
00:33:25,574 –> 00:33:26,083
[david_shapiro]: define

1146
00:33:25,587 –> 00:33:26,789
[ramsey_d_smith]: definitely a complicated puzzle

1147
00:33:27,003 –> 00:33:27,144
[david_shapiro]: yeah

1148
00:33:27,650 –> 00:33:29,934
[ramsey_d_smith]: but you know sometimes complexity there’s a
situation you know

1149
00:33:29,940 –> 00:33:30,241
[paul_tyler]: oh

1150
00:33:29,974 –> 00:33:32,698
[ramsey_d_smith]: if you know with that kind of
value add you may

1151
00:33:32,730 –> 00:33:32,977
[paul_tyler]: yes

1152
00:33:32,819 –> 00:33:33,880
[ramsey_d_smith]: you know you may ultimately

1153
00:33:33,750 –> 00:33:33,770
[paul_tyler]: m

1154
00:33:34,121 –> 00:33:36,665
[ramsey_d_smith]: be you know well compensated for that
i know if you can talk about it

1155
00:33:36,725 –> 00:33:42,996
[ramsey_d_smith]: but what as you talk to investors
what kinds of return bogies are they looking

1156
00:33:43,076 –> 00:33:47,144
[ramsey_d_smith]: for in what are you are you
giving them as a range is that

1157
00:33:47,183 –> 00:33:47,363
[david_shapiro]: well

1158
00:33:47,184 –> 00:33:47,686
[ramsey_d_smith]: something you can

1159
00:33:48,044 –> 00:33:48,204
[david_shapiro]: yeah

1160
00:33:48,348 –> 00:33:48,730
[ramsey_d_smith]: discuss

1161
00:33:48,425 –> 00:33:49,727
[david_shapiro]: yeah it’s interesting

1162
00:33:49,312 –> 00:33:50,295
[ramsey_d_smith]: or is that the secret sauce

1163
00:33:50,088 –> 00:33:51,390
[david_shapiro]: no no it’s interesting

1164
00:33:51,469 –> 00:33:51,614
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

1165
00:33:51,650 –> 00:33:58,281
[david_shapiro]: and i personally think that there’s a
lot of gold in the in the complexity

1166
00:33:58,421 –> 00:34:02,789
[david_shapiro]: because people that don’t you know this
is a huge market right it’s probably the

1167
00:34:02,829 –> 00:34:04,812
[david_shapiro]: largest asset class out there right

1168
00:34:05,100 –> 00:34:05,241
[paul_tyler]: yeah

1169
00:34:05,313 –> 00:34:10,281
[david_shapiro]: so coming up with a complex solution
in an asset class that is in the

1170
00:34:10,662 –> 00:34:16,411
[david_shapiro]: you know trillions and trillions of dollars
is worth the work associated with it so

1171
00:34:16,530 –> 00:34:16,796
[paul_tyler]: oh

1172
00:34:16,972 –> 00:34:17,453
[david_shapiro]: i don’t mind

1173
00:34:17,460 –> 00:34:17,701
[paul_tyler]: oh

1174
00:34:17,533 –> 00:34:22,602
[david_shapiro]: complexity doesn’t bother me at all i
mean it does not fare well for us

1175
00:34:22,862 –> 00:34:28,872
[david_shapiro]: right trying to raise capital from a
venture investor it is too complicated for venture

1176
00:34:28,772 –> 00:34:28,854
[paul_tyler]: ah

1177
00:34:28,932 –> 00:34:29,373
[david_shapiro]: investors

1178
00:34:29,490 –> 00:34:29,731
[paul_tyler]: yes

1179
00:34:29,553 –> 00:34:29,654
[david_shapiro]: and

1180
00:34:29,639 –> 00:34:30,329
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

1181
00:34:29,774 –> 00:34:31,777
[david_shapiro]: i’m too old for adventure investors anyway

1182
00:34:31,829 –> 00:34:32,489
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

1183
00:34:32,138 –> 00:34:33,720
[david_shapiro]: so but the

1184
00:34:33,741 –> 00:34:33,881
[paul_tyler]: yeah

1185
00:34:33,780 –> 00:34:39,630
[david_shapiro]: strategic investors that see the value of
this particularly those that have distribution you know

1186
00:34:39,750 –> 00:34:47,223
[david_shapiro]: the insurance companies um you know it’s
fine now the really important question is the

1187
00:34:47,303 –> 00:34:51,350
[david_shapiro]: pricing on the product and with interest
rates moving up the cost of equity is

1188
00:34:51,390 –> 00:34:56,198
[david_shapiro]: going to move up so it’s not
dollar for dollar you have to look at

1189
00:34:56,558 –> 00:35:00,545
[david_shapiro]: other you can’t just look at the
now two hundred and fifty or three hundred

1190
00:35:00,605 –> 00:35:05,894
[david_shapiro]: basis point rise in interest rates as
a guide to how much the equity cost

1191
00:35:05,994 –> 00:35:10,321
[david_shapiro]: should be because that really needs to
be a function of h p a credit

1192
00:35:10,381 –> 00:35:15,590
[david_shapiro]: risk stuff that right so we do
think that there will be a relationship in

1193
00:35:15,650 –> 00:35:22,101
[david_shapiro]: the cost of equity to to that
that right now it’s much more narrow than

1194
00:35:22,161 –> 00:35:26,809
[david_shapiro]: it’s ever been because we haven’t had
any pricing impact but we’re going to in

1195
00:35:26,829 –> 00:35:28,832
[david_shapiro]: the next few months and we think
that

1196
00:35:29,072 –> 00:35:29,153
[paul_tyler]: ah

1197
00:35:29,253 –> 00:35:33,460
[david_shapiro]: you know we’ll probably go from a
nine percent i r r to the investor

1198
00:35:33,560 –> 00:35:34,902
[david_shapiro]: to probably something closer to a

1199
00:35:34,919 –> 00:35:34,939
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

1200
00:35:35,163 –> 00:35:37,086
[david_shapiro]: per cent i r r but

1201
00:35:37,166 –> 00:35:37,829
[ramsey_d_smith]: hm

1202
00:35:37,286 –> 00:35:40,031
[david_shapiro]: it’s not going to be it’s not
going to be two or three hundred bass

1203
00:35:40,071 –> 00:35:40,972
[david_shapiro]: points and

1204
00:35:41,001 –> 00:35:41,505
[ramsey_d_smith]: sure i just

1205
00:35:41,493 –> 00:35:41,573
[david_shapiro]: and

1206
00:35:41,546 –> 00:35:42,575
[ramsey_d_smith]: for right

1207
00:35:42,435 –> 00:35:46,602
[david_shapiro]: it’s the same the same the same
problem that anyone is going to have interest

1208
00:35:46,662 –> 00:35:48,326
[david_shapiro]: rates ye entirely you’re going

1209
00:35:48,139 –> 00:35:48,283
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

1210
00:35:48,386 –> 00:35:49,510
[david_shapiro]: up so i don’t think we get
singled

1211
00:35:49,411 –> 00:35:49,512
[ramsey_d_smith]: ah

1212
00:35:49,570 –> 00:35:49,670
[david_shapiro]: out

1213
00:35:50,890 –> 00:35:50,970
[ramsey_d_smith]: so

1214
00:35:51,060 –> 00:35:51,181
[paul_tyler]: uh

1215
00:35:51,271 –> 00:35:54,724
[ramsey_d_smith]: for the benefit of our our audience
when you say h pa that’s home price

00:35:54,754 –> 00:35:54,915
[david_shapiro]: price

00:35:59,168 –> 00:35:59,309
[ramsey_d_smith]: eh

1225
00:35:59,364 –> 00:36:00,566
[paul_tyler]: well this is a great conversation

1226
00:36:00,308 –> 00:36:01,269
[ramsey_d_smith]: m yeah

1227
00:36:01,087 –> 00:36:06,697
[paul_tyler]: ramsey any other thoughts or questions this
is a very different take on a common

1228
00:36:06,777 –> 00:36:07,658
[paul_tyler]: problem people have

1229
00:36:08,459 –> 00:36:11,884
[ramsey_d_smith]: like i i grew up in a
world of financial

1230
00:36:11,842 –> 00:36:11,863
[david_shapiro]: m

1231
00:36:11,945 –> 00:36:17,213
[ramsey_d_smith]: complexity so i always find these things
you know very interesting at the same time

1232
00:36:17,354 –> 00:36:22,823
[ramsey_d_smith]: you know i always now and my
my post complex career i also focus on

1233
00:36:22,863 –> 00:36:23,063
[ramsey_d_smith]: and well

1234
00:36:22,980 –> 00:36:23,940
[paul_tyler]: oh

1235
00:36:23,083 –> 00:36:24,205
[ramsey_d_smith]: how do we how do you make

1236
00:36:24,120 –> 00:36:24,812
[paul_tyler]: oh

1237
00:36:24,245 –> 00:36:25,748
[ramsey_d_smith]: it sort of palatable for the consumer

1238
00:36:25,890 –> 00:36:26,760
[paul_tyler]: oh

1239
00:36:26,068 –> 00:36:29,854
[ramsey_d_smith]: and and i thought it was very
interesting that you were very clear from the

1240
00:36:29,894 –> 00:36:34,121
[ramsey_d_smith]: beginning that the distribution here is though
someone like a financial advisor that

1241
00:36:34,043 –> 00:36:34,184
[david_shapiro]: yeah

1242
00:36:34,162 –> 00:36:38,769
[ramsey_d_smith]: can can put it make it part
of a menu and help a help a

1243
00:36:38,829 –> 00:36:43,517
[ramsey_d_smith]: consumer get to the get to the
right place i think i agree with you

1244
00:36:43,798 –> 00:36:44,723
[ramsey_d_smith]: that fun mentally

1245
00:36:44,383 –> 00:36:44,486
[paul_tyler]: met

1246
00:36:44,865 –> 00:36:50,806
[ramsey_d_smith]: that that that the house value being
house poor is like a big problem especially

1247
00:36:50,826 –> 00:36:53,050
[ramsey_d_smith]: in places like california where you know
where you live

1248
00:36:53,359 –> 00:36:53,893
[david_shapiro]: hm

1249
00:36:54,060 –> 00:36:54,282
[paul_tyler]: yeah

1250
00:36:54,192 –> 00:36:59,140
[ramsey_d_smith]: and so people need solutions people need
solutions there and so new and creative ones

1251
00:36:59,200 –> 00:37:01,603
[ramsey_d_smith]: i think are are great to have

00:37:01,650 –> 00:37:03,060
[paul_tyler]: oh

1253
00:37:01,663 –> 00:37:05,547
[ramsey_d_smith]: and again i keep on going through
the formula in my head i’ve got it

1254
00:37:05,608 –> 00:37:07,230
[ramsey_d_smith]: now sure i got it now

1255

[ramsey_d_smith]: ah

98
00:03:17,476 –> 00:03:18,418
[paul_tyler]: what’s real what’s not

99
00:03:19,966 –> 00:03:24,714
[kerry_h_pechter]: well we have to understand that that
social security is important to everyone because you

100
00:03:24,774 –> 00:03:29,442
[kerry_h_pechter]: have to remember that even people who
whose main interest is in investing in the

101
00:03:29,602 –> 00:03:31,906
[kerry_h_pechter]: risky markets that that social

102
00:03:31,896 –> 00:03:32,157
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

103
00:03:31,946 –> 00:03:34,590
[kerry_h_pechter]: security acts as kind of a ballast
in their

104
00:03:34,626 –> 00:03:34,927
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

105
00:03:34,651 –> 00:03:36,994
[kerry_h_pechter]: retirement income so that if sort

106
00:03:37,026 –> 00:03:37,267
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

00:03:41,826 –> 00:03:42,109
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

109
00:03:42,163 –> 00:03:43,966
[kerry_h_pechter]: eighty thousand dollars a year social

110
00:03:43,866 –> 00:03:44,248
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

111
00:03:44,026 –> 00:03:45,729
[kerry_h_pechter]: security minus taxes and meta care

112
00:03:46,212 –> 00:03:46,395
[ramsey_d_smith]: yes

113
00:03:46,430 –> 00:03:49,375
[kerry_h_pechter]: that you know that’s giving you that’s
opening up a big

114
00:03:49,442 –> 00:03:49,743
[ramsey_d_smith]: he

115
00:03:49,455 –> 00:03:50,176
[kerry_h_pechter]: space for you to

116
00:03:50,106 –> 00:03:50,327
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

117
00:03:50,277 –> 00:03:56,168
[kerry_h_pechter]: invest that much more money in equities
and not have to worry so you have

118
00:03:56,228 –> 00:04:02,708
[kerry_h_pechter]: to think of it in the context
of the entire uh uh everybody needs to

119
00:04:02,748 –> 00:04:03,169
[kerry_h_pechter]: think about

120
00:04:03,126 –> 00:04:03,966
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

121
00:04:03,229 –> 00:04:06,855
[kerry_h_pechter]: social security it’s not as though the
wealthy can can say

122
00:04:07,056 –> 00:04:07,398
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

123
00:04:07,636 –> 00:04:08,858
[kerry_h_pechter]: i mean perhaps the very

124
00:04:08,976 –> 00:04:10,176
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

125
00:04:09,018 –> 00:04:10,821
[kerry_h_pechter]: very wealthy can say but

126
00:04:10,716 –> 00:04:11,586
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

127
00:04:11,763 –> 00:04:11,923
[kerry_h_pechter]: even

128
00:04:11,916 –> 00:04:12,906
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

129
00:04:13,025 –> 00:04:18,154
[kerry_h_pechter]: the affluent need to think about how
it works as a element in their portfolio

130
00:04:18,775 –> 00:04:20,157
[kerry_h_pechter]: so that’s that’s the way

131
00:04:20,190 –> 00:04:20,880
[paul_tyler]: yeah

132
00:04:20,197 –> 00:04:25,285
[kerry_h_pechter]: of establishing a larger audience for this
but but as far as the i wrote

133
00:04:25,486 –> 00:04:25,907
[kerry_h_pechter]: i’m called

134
00:04:25,920 –> 00:04:26,243
[paul_tyler]: oh

135
00:04:26,488 –> 00:04:29,114
[kerry_h_pechter]: social securities problems are more political than
financial

136
00:04:29,386 –> 00:04:29,567
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

137
00:04:29,796 –> 00:04:31,560

[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

139
00:04:32,281 –> 00:04:35,288
[kerry_h_pechter]: basically why that’s true and also why

140
00:04:35,256 –> 00:04:35,946
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

141
00:04:35,829 –> 00:04:44,539
[kerry_h_pechter]: the financial the financing problems that have
are are easily are not as scary as

142
00:04:44,579 –> 00:04:46,983
[kerry_h_pechter]: they’ve been made out to be the
first thing i have t do is to

143
00:04:47,043 –> 00:04:49,548
[kerry_h_pechter]: acknowledge the economist

144
00:04:50,055 –> 00:04:50,076

157
00:05:19,799 –> 00:05:23,445
[kerry_h_pechter]: or an advisor tells me that they’ve
done the math and they’ve shown that anybody

158
00:05:23,485 –> 00:05:25,108
[kerry_h_pechter]: who’s making more than eighty thousand dollars

159

[ramsey_d_smith]: thank you

201
00:06:26,369 –> 00:06:28,292
[kerry_h_pechter]: is the wrong way to think about
what

202
00:06:28,326 –> 00:06:28,346
[ramsey_d_smith]: i

203
00:06:28,332 –> 00:06:33,360
[kerry_h_pechter]: you get from self security because you’re
not they get an income you get you

204
00:06:33,460 –> 00:06:39,771
[kerry_h_pechter]: get insurance from longevity risk the risk
of outliving your income you get insurance from

205
00:06:39,911 –> 00:06:43,057
[kerry_h_pechter]: market risk the risk of retiring in
it down turn

206
00:06:42,936 –> 00:06:43,178
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

207
00:06:43,238 –> 00:06:44,522
[kerry_h_pechter]: also called sequence risk

208
00:06:45,066 –> 00:06:45,267
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

209
00:06:45,204 –> 00:06:48,254
[kerry_h_pechter]: the you’re protected from inflation risk

210
00:06:48,006 –> 00:06:48,372
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

211
00:06:48,968 –> 00:06:49,090
[kerry_h_pechter]: and

212
00:06:49,116 –> 00:06:49,361
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

213
00:06:50,617 –> 00:06:57,528
[kerry_h_pechter]: and a couple of other risks and
so to not under to think of social

214
00:06:57,588 –> 00:07:02,536
[kerry_h_pechter]: security in terms of average internal rate
of return is ex there the same

215
00:07:02,736 –> 00:07:02,977
[ramsey_d_smith]: yes

216
00:07:02,897 –> 00:07:06,243
[kerry_h_pechter]: making the same mistake is when people
look at an income annuity

217
00:07:05,976 –> 00:07:07,086
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

218
00:07:06,443 –> 00:07:07,044
[kerry_h_pechter]: and try to

219
00:07:06,969 –> 00:07:06,990
[paul_tyler]: m

220
00:07:07,665 –> 00:07:08,226
[kerry_h_pechter]: compare

221
00:07:07,716 –> 00:07:07,939
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

222
00:07:08,647 –> 00:07:09,228
[kerry_h_pechter]: the internal

223
00:07:09,186 –> 00:07:09,954
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

224
00:07:09,288 –> 00:07:11,471
[kerry_h_pechter]: rate of return on average of the
income

225
00:07:11,406 –> 00:07:11,867
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

226
00:07:11,531 –> 00:07:17,722
[kerry_h_pechter]: annuity to an investment and to the
average long term return to the markets so

227
00:07:18,082 –> 00:07:26,236
[kerry_h_pechter]: so we’re mixing apples and origins and
somehow the narrative about social security has alling

228
00:07:26,296 –> 00:07:36,434
[kerry_h_pechter]: into the hands of the investment folks
which is not altogether surprising but but it’s

229
00:07:36,734 –> 00:07:36,874
[kerry_h_pechter]: it’s

230
00:07:36,996 –> 00:07:37,198
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

231
00:07:37,295 –> 00:07:38,878
[kerry_h_pechter]: so it’s been miss it’s mis

232
00:07:38,826 –> 00:07:39,106
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

233
00:07:38,978 –> 00:07:42,063
[kerry_h_pechter]: characterized it’s the ugly duck in rather

234
00:07:42,366 –> 00:07:42,628
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

235
00:07:42,504 –> 00:07:43,345
[kerry_h_pechter]: its portrayed as the

236
00:07:43,506 –> 00:07:43,806
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

237
00:07:43,706 –> 00:07:48,575
[kerry_h_pechter]: duckling rather than the swan that it
is now that’s i’ve said a lot there

238
00:07:48,755 –> 00:07:52,542
[kerry_h_pechter]: and maybe i can if you still
have some questions about it maybe i can

239
00:07:52,926 –> 00:07:53,646
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

240
00:07:53,003 –> 00:07:53,765
[kerry_h_pechter]: unpack it a little

241
00:07:54,705 –> 00:07:58,988
[ramsey_d_smith]: m no i think that’s very clear
and

242
00:07:59,118 –> 00:07:59,261
[kerry_h_pechter]: yeah

243
00:07:59,268 –> 00:07:59,489
[ramsey_d_smith]: you know

244
00:07:59,910 –> 00:08:00,178
[paul_tyler]: oh

245
00:07:59,910 –> 00:08:06,581
[ramsey_d_smith]: i will say personally i agree with
everything you said about the the value proposition

246
00:08:06,921 –> 00:08:09,465
[ramsey_d_smith]: of social security v c v just
about any oth

247
00:08:10,311 –> 00:08:10,394
[kerry_h_pechter]: ah

248
00:08:10,327 –> 00:08:14,013
[ramsey_d_smith]: uh potential source for all the various
reasons that you mentioned now um

249
00:08:14,526 –> 00:08:15,126
[kerry_h_pechter]: oh

250
00:08:15,215 –> 00:08:18,300
[ramsey_d_smith]: one of the one of the the
elements of the

251
00:08:18,369 –> 00:08:18,390
[paul_tyler]: m

252
00:08:18,380 –> 00:08:22,748
[ramsey_d_smith]: current dialogue in the market about social
security as well yeah fine even if i

253
00:08:22,808 –> 00:08:23,570
[ramsey_d_smith]: agree it’s great

254
00:08:25,086 –> 00:08:25,327
[kerry_h_pechter]: yeah

255
00:08:26,716 –> 00:08:33,086
[ramsey_d_smith]: the average consumer is hearing frequently that
that it’s not going to be around i

256
00:08:33,186 –> 00:08:37,213
[ramsey_d_smith]: spoke to i spoke to somebody ho
was doing some work around my house recently

257
00:08:37,313 –> 00:08:38,175
[ramsey_d_smith]: and who mentioned

258
00:08:38,211 –> 00:08:38,374
[paul_tyler]: yeah

259
00:08:38,235 –> 00:08:41,059
[ramsey_d_smith]: that you know that she had just
started taking social security she was sixty two

260
00:08:41,100 –> 00:08:44,966
[ramsey_d_smith]: years old and i said well why
did you do that i mean borrowing a

261
00:08:45,006 –> 00:08:49,013
[ramsey_d_smith]: health reason i said you should do
everything you can she was still employed in

262
00:08:49,073 –> 00:08:51,998
[ramsey_d_smith]: some way you should do everything you
can do hanging on to your seventy and

263
00:08:52,058 –> 00:08:56,407
[ramsey_d_smith]: one of the first things she said
she was concerned about it not being around

264
00:08:56,487 –> 00:09:02,764
[ramsey_d_smith]: for her and she’s only she’s already
sixty two m so how do you think

265
00:09:02,804 –> 00:09:08,175
[ramsey_d_smith]: that perception was created and you know
what do you think we can do to

266
00:09:08,496 –> 00:09:14,263
[ramsey_d_smith]: to alleviate that perception to the people
actually use this this amazing benefit

267
00:09:14,010 –> 00:09:14,252
[paul_tyler]: yeah

268
00:09:14,404 –> 00:09:15,588
[ramsey_d_smith]: more optimately

269
00:09:17,326 –> 00:09:20,472
[kerry_h_pechter]: well it’s interesting that you know people
believe what they hear over

270
00:09:20,436 –> 00:09:20,718
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

271
00:09:21,153 –> 00:09:24,139
[kerry_h_pechter]: the back fence more readily than they
believe say

272
00:09:24,051 –> 00:09:24,191
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

273
00:09:24,599 –> 00:09:27,365
[kerry_h_pechter]: steve goss the chief actuary of social
security

274
00:09:28,446 –> 00:09:28,707
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

275
00:09:28,726 –> 00:09:32,472
[kerry_h_pechter]: who who’s not as far as i
know shouldn’t speak for him but from the

276
00:09:32,533 –> 00:09:33,574
[kerry_h_pechter]: time that i’ve talked to him

277
00:09:33,746 –> 00:09:33,988
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

278
00:09:34,436 –> 00:09:36,018
[kerry_h_pechter]: he’s not particularly concerned

279
00:09:35,616 –> 00:09:35,897
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

280
00:09:35,880 –> 00:09:36,484
[paul_tyler]: oh

281
00:09:36,539 –> 00:09:38,122
[kerry_h_pechter]: about so security but her

282
00:09:38,215 –> 00:09:38,457
[paul_tyler]: yes

283
00:09:38,543 –> 00:09:45,634
[kerry_h_pechter]: her she’s where her fear comes from
of course is the ms characterization

284
00:09:45,096 –> 00:09:45,498
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

285
00:09:45,694 –> 00:09:49,441
[kerry_h_pechter]: is that she’s read but the mis
characterizations are rooted in this

286
00:09:49,296 –> 00:09:49,660
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

287
00:09:49,601 –> 00:09:54,433
[kerry_h_pechter]: idea that the social security system is
going to he broke in twenty thirty four

288
00:09:55,416 –> 00:09:55,577
[kerry_h_pechter]: and

289
00:09:56,316 –> 00:09:56,537
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

290
00:09:56,982 –> 00:09:59,626
[kerry_h_pechter]: that’s ah complete

291
00:09:59,295 –> 00:10:00,576
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah yeah

292
00:09:59,666 –> 00:10:00,668
[kerry_h_pechter]: mischaracterization

293
00:10:00,666 –> 00:10:00,686
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

294
00:10:00,870 –> 00:10:02,010
[paul_tyler]: yeah

295
00:10:01,369 –> 00:10:07,099
[kerry_h_pechter]: the let’s say that you were buying
a health insurance and the demographics of your

296
00:10:07,239 –> 00:10:15,633
[kerry_h_pechter]: pool changed and the uh insurance company
was no longer to maintain the same level

297
00:10:15,974 –> 00:10:17,877
[kerry_h_pechter]: of protections

298
00:10:17,376 –> 00:10:17,798
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

299
00:10:18,358 –> 00:10:19,059
[kerry_h_pechter]: unless you went to

300
00:10:19,116 –> 00:10:19,377
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

301
00:10:19,139 –> 00:10:20,982
[kerry_h_pechter]: a cheaper unless same expense

302
00:10:20,646 –> 00:10:20,950
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

303
00:10:21,122 –> 00:10:22,504
[kerry_h_pechter]: and level so you would have

304
00:10:22,446 –> 00:10:22,747
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

305
00:10:22,525 –> 00:10:24,267
[kerry_h_pechter]: to either pay higher premium to get

306
00:10:24,180 –> 00:10:24,382
[paul_tyler]: oh

307
00:10:24,648 –> 00:10:27,613
[kerry_h_pechter]: the coverage that you’re getting now or
you would have to

308
00:10:27,765 –> 00:10:27,786
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

309
00:10:28,755 –> 00:10:29,596
[kerry_h_pechter]: take lower benefits

310
00:10:29,256 –> 00:10:29,600
[ramsey_d_smith]: my

311
00:10:30,240 –> 00:10:31,350
[paul_tyler]: yeah

312
00:10:30,398 –> 00:10:33,944
[kerry_h_pechter]: and and the i guess implied there
would be that

313
00:10:33,756 –> 00:10:35,076
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

314
00:10:34,304 –> 00:10:38,638
[kerry_h_pechter]: well if the insurance and he does
not either raise you know if you

315
00:10:38,796 –> 00:10:39,606
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

316
00:10:39,199 –> 00:10:40,621
[kerry_h_pechter]: do not choose either higher

317
00:10:40,416 –> 00:10:41,256
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

318
00:10:40,962 –> 00:10:42,544
[kerry_h_pechter]: premiums or lower benefits

319
00:10:42,186 –> 00:10:42,386
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

320
00:10:43,186 –> 00:10:47,673
[kerry_h_pechter]: the insurance company will in effect go
out of business if that’s its only business

321
00:10:47,796 –> 00:10:48,062
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

322
00:10:48,414 –> 00:10:52,020
[kerry_h_pechter]: and so so but of course nobody
ever thinks

323
00:10:51,966 –> 00:10:52,288
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

324
00:10:52,381 –> 00:10:56,408
[kerry_h_pechter]: when they get a rate increase from
their insurance company or even from their electrical

325
00:10:56,488 –> 00:10:57,469
[kerry_h_pechter]: company they

326
00:10:57,360 –> 00:10:57,601
[paul_tyler]: yeah

327
00:10:57,549 –> 00:11:01,476
[kerry_h_pechter]: may not like it but it does
not mean that the insurance come he is

328
00:11:01,556 –> 00:11:02,558
[kerry_h_pechter]: going to go broke

329
00:11:02,826 –> 00:11:03,007
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

330
00:11:03,018 –> 00:11:08,497
[kerry_h_pechter]: in the insurentin the united states of
america is the biggest safest richest

331
00:11:09,126 –> 00:11:10,446
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

332
00:11:09,178 –> 00:11:12,884
[kerry_h_pechter]: most stable insurance company that has ever
existed in the

333
00:11:12,936 –> 00:11:13,836
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

334
00:11:12,944 –> 00:11:18,794
[kerry_h_pechter]: history of the world and so to
say that social security is going to go

335
00:11:18,974 –> 00:11:19,896
[kerry_h_pechter]: broke is like saying

336
00:11:20,265 –> 00:11:20,286
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

337
00:11:20,517 –> 00:11:24,383
[kerry_h_pechter]: that the united states is going to

[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

360
00:12:02,140 –> 00:12:02,961
[kerry_h_pechter]: a default

00:12:03,161 –> 00:12:05,565
[kerry_h_pechter]: of the united states debt in two

00:12:05,877 –> 00:12:06,039
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

364
00:12:06,287 –> 00:12:07,308

00:12:09,572 –> 00:12:10,654
[kerry_h_pechter]: temper tantrum over the

00:12:10,806 –> 00:12:11,066
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

won’t even necessarily notice it unless people make

376
00:12:28,063 –> 00:12:32,170
[kerry_h_pechter]: a big deal out of it because
social security is already coming

[kerry_h_pechter]: out of the general fund of the
united states

00:12:39,496 –> 00:12:39,777
[ramsey_d_smith]: right so

384
00:12:39,802 –> 00:12:40,224
[kerry_h_pechter]: neiborhood

385
00:12:39,817 –> 00:12:39,957
[ramsey_d_smith]: let’s

386
00:12:39,960 –> 00:12:40,162
[paul_tyler]: yeah

387
00:12:40,117 –> 00:12:41,379
[ramsey_d_smith]: let’s let’s

388
00:12:41,538 –> 00:12:41,658
[kerry_h_pechter]: so

389
00:12:41,619 –> 00:12:41,780
[ramsey_d_smith]: let’s

390
00:12:42,200 –> 00:12:42,361
[kerry_h_pechter]: there

391
00:12:42,321 –> 00:12:42,421
[ramsey_d_smith]: can

392
00:12:42,421 –> 00:12:42,562
[kerry_h_pechter]: was

393
00:12:42,461 –> 00:12:42,841
[ramsey_d_smith]: we break it

394
00:12:42,863 –> 00:12:42,963
[kerry_h_pechter]: no

395
00:12:42,881 –> 00:12:43,442
[ramsey_d_smith]: down a little bit

396
00:12:44,308 –> 00:12:46,096
[kerry_h_pechter]: okay well let’s we need to break
that down

397
00:12:46,026 –> 00:12:46,366
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

398
00:12:46,216 –> 00:12:47,803
[kerry_h_pechter]: go ahead and maybe you can me

399
00:12:47,909 –> 00:12:51,535
[ramsey_d_smith]: i want to yeah so let’s because
there’s there’s a lot

400
00:12:51,450 –> 00:12:52,830
[paul_tyler]: yeah

401
00:12:51,615 –> 00:12:54,019
[ramsey_d_smith]: of here’s a lot of important elements
to what you’re

402
00:12:53,940 –> 00:12:53,960
[paul_tyler]: m

403
00:12:54,059 –> 00:12:58,486
[ramsey_d_smith]: saying so let’s first start with this
notion of the of the twenty thirty four

404
00:12:58,526 –> 00:13:03,575
[ramsey_d_smith]: dat moves around at twenty four five
every i don’t know periodically it gets updated

405
00:13:04,657 –> 00:13:07,642
[ramsey_d_smith]: but one is just to be clear
on what happens on that date it’s not

406
00:13:07,702 –> 00:13:12,009
[ramsey_d_smith]: that it’s not that social security does
not enough in flows to pay the outflows

407
00:13:12,670 –> 00:13:16,917
[ramsey_d_smith]: it just to pay any outflows is
just that the inflows

408
00:13:16,560 –> 00:13:16,781
[paul_tyler]: oh

409
00:13:16,957 –> 00:13:20,102
[ramsey_d_smith]: will only equal only equal eighty percent
of the outflows

410
00:13:20,100 –> 00:13:20,120
[paul_tyler]: m

411
00:13:20,162 –> 00:13:20,904
[ramsey_d_smith]: and the trust fund

412
00:13:21,356 –> 00:13:21,538
[kerry_h_pechter]: right

413
00:13:21,605 –> 00:13:23,933
[ramsey_d_smith]: the trust won’t be able to make
up the difference is that correct

414
00:13:24,849 –> 00:13:26,117
[kerry_h_pechter]: uh yes i think we’re

415
00:13:26,202 –> 00:13:26,262
[ramsey_d_smith]: is

416
00:13:26,278 –> 00:13:26,660
[kerry_h_pechter]: already

417
00:13:26,343 –> 00:13:26,384
[ramsey_d_smith]: it

418
00:13:27,926 –> 00:13:28,447
[kerry_h_pechter]: out of the

419
00:13:28,509 –> 00:13:28,530
[paul_tyler]: m

420
00:13:28,527 –> 00:13:33,095
[kerry_h_pechter]: interest on the trust fund or the
trust fund is already so

421
00:13:33,156 –> 00:13:33,378
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

422
00:13:33,175 –> 00:13:35,259
[kerry_h_pechter]: what is happening now is that the
general

423
00:13:35,014 –> 00:13:35,196
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

424
00:13:35,379 –> 00:13:35,680
[kerry_h_pechter]: fund

425
00:13:35,556 –> 00:13:35,817
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

426
00:13:36,141 –> 00:13:38,325
[kerry_h_pechter]: is redeeming trust fund assets

427
00:13:38,976 –> 00:13:40,056
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

428
00:13:39,436 –> 00:13:41,119
[kerry_h_pechter]: in other words the government

429
00:13:41,137 –> 00:13:41,318
[ramsey_d_smith]: right

430
00:13:41,399 –> 00:13:44,244
[kerry_h_pechter]: is paying to redeem those it’s giving

431
00:13:44,079 –> 00:13:44,181
[ramsey_d_smith]: ah

432
00:13:44,344 –> 00:13:45,686
[kerry_h_pechter]: social security money from

433
00:13:45,756 –> 00:13:46,686
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

434
00:13:45,767 –> 00:13:53,240
[kerry_h_pechter]: the general fund technically to redeem social
securities trust fund but it doesn’t really matter

435
00:13:53,280 –> 00:13:57,347
[kerry_h_pechter]: whether it’s redeeming the trust fund or
not the important thing is to know is

436
00:13:57,447 –> 00:14:03,000
[kerry_h_pechter]: that the money started coming out of
the common of the general fund of the

437
00:14:03,020 –> 00:14:09,277
[kerry_h_pechter]: united states and no one noticed it
it was a purely

438
00:14:09,413 –> 00:14:09,514
[paul_tyler]: ah

439
00:14:09,898 –> 00:14:10,499
[kerry_h_pechter]: technical

440
00:14:10,236 –> 00:14:10,539
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

441
00:14:10,760 –> 00:14:16,550
[kerry_h_pechter]: event there was no crisis and this
is going to go on until twenty thirty

442
00:14:16,650 –> 00:14:19,314
[kerry_h_pechter]: four whereas in twenty thirty four there
will be a

443
00:14:19,485 –> 00:14:19,506
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

444
00:14:19,494 –> 00:14:20,476
[kerry_h_pechter]: technical limit

445
00:14:20,616 –> 00:14:20,897
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

446
00:14:20,957 –> 00:14:22,139
[kerry_h_pechter]: to the amount of money

447
00:14:22,326 –> 00:14:22,668
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

448
00:14:22,680 –> 00:14:24,543
[kerry_h_pechter]: that the general fund can continue

449
00:14:24,585 –> 00:14:24,606
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

450
00:14:24,623 –> 00:14:27,327
[kerry_h_pechter]: to supply to social security because

451
00:14:27,156 –> 00:14:27,176
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

452
00:14:27,648 –> 00:14:28,810
[kerry_h_pechter]: of a technical

453
00:14:28,536 –> 00:14:28,840
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

454
00:14:29,431 –> 00:14:35,661
[kerry_h_pechter]: law there is nothing in the world
to stop the united states general fund from

455
00:14:35,762 –> 00:14:38,847
[kerry_h_pechter]: continuing to make up the short fall
in the social

456
00:14:38,850 –> 00:14:39,840
[paul_tyler]: oh

457
00:14:38,907 –> 00:14:39,788
[kerry_h_pechter]: security as

458
00:14:39,816 –> 00:14:40,596
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

459
00:14:39,888 –> 00:14:43,675
[kerry_h_pechter]: they are doing now and there is
no reason for and

460
00:14:43,626 –> 00:14:43,889
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

461
00:14:43,755 –> 00:14:44,476
[kerry_h_pechter]: to have this

462
00:14:44,406 –> 00:14:44,647
[ramsey_d_smith]: yah

463
00:14:44,977 –> 00:14:47,440
[kerry_h_pechter]: i’m going to get really excited to
hear and i don’t know if that’s a

464
00:14:47,480 –> 00:14:48,182
[kerry_h_pechter]: good thing or not

465
00:14:48,523 –> 00:14:48,543
[ramsey_d_smith]: h

466
00:14:48,822 –> 00:14:50,044
[kerry_h_pechter]: but there is

467
00:14:50,216 –> 00:14:51,018
[ramsey_d_smith]: before you do though

468
00:14:51,156 –> 00:14:53,286
[kerry_h_pechter]: yeah

469
00:14:51,218 –> 00:14:55,205
[ramsey_d_smith]: before you before you do i just

470
00:14:55,167 –> 00:14:55,309
[kerry_h_pechter]: yeah

471
00:14:55,225 –> 00:14:58,290
[ramsey_d_smith]: want to be i just want to
be clear on something because right just

472
00:14:58,566 –> 00:14:59,376
[kerry_h_pechter]: yeah

473
00:14:58,931 –> 00:15:03,561
[ramsey_d_smith]: so there there’s the general fund which
pays which pays the money that ends up

474
00:15:03,621 –> 00:15:04,784
[ramsey_d_smith]: in people’s mail box right

475
00:15:05,406 –> 00:15:05,646
[kerry_h_pechter]: there’s

476
00:15:05,606 –> 00:15:05,747
[ramsey_d_smith]: and

477
00:15:05,827 –> 00:15:06,147
[kerry_h_pechter]: general

478
00:15:06,048 –> 00:15:06,228
[ramsey_d_smith]: eighty

479
00:15:06,207 –> 00:15:06,468
[kerry_h_pechter]: fund

480
00:15:06,288 –> 00:15:06,730
[ramsey_d_smith]: percent of

481
00:15:07,189 –> 00:15:07,950
[kerry_h_pechter]: redeems

482
00:15:07,311 –> 00:15:07,773
[ramsey_d_smith]: i’m going to just

483
00:15:08,311 –> 00:15:13,980
[kerry_h_pechter]: redeems the trust fund assets and then
the social security takes the money

484
00:15:14,136 –> 00:15:16,086
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

485
00:15:14,521 –> 00:15:19,792
[kerry_h_pechter]: it gets from the redemption of the
trust fund ass and puts it into people’s

486
00:15:19,852 –> 00:15:21,964
[kerry_h_pechter]: mail boxes virtually

487
00:15:22,207 –> 00:15:28,037
[ramsey_d_smith]: agreed so when when the trust but
assets good to zero right on or around

488
00:15:28,117 –> 00:15:33,586
[ramsey_d_smith]: twenty thirty four then that twenty percent
if that’s the short whatever the show fall

489
00:15:33,686 –> 00:15:33,807
[ramsey_d_smith]: is

490
00:15:33,690 –> 00:15:33,931
[paul_tyler]: yeah

491
00:15:34,187 –> 00:15:35,249
[ramsey_d_smith]: it has to come from

492
00:15:35,319 –> 00:15:35,460
[paul_tyler]: yeah

493
00:15:35,329 –> 00:15:38,254
[ramsey_d_smith]: somewhere it can no longer come from
the trust fund so

494
00:15:38,199 –> 00:15:38,220
[paul_tyler]: m

495
00:15:38,334 –> 00:15:42,521
[ramsey_d_smith]: then some action will have to be
taken and we may agree that it’s likely

496
00:15:42,581 –> 00:15:47,250
[ramsey_d_smith]: that some political action will be taken
but some politica action somebody will have to

497
00:15:47,290 –> 00:15:50,658
[ramsey_d_smith]: do something somebody in the united states
government whether it’s the president our congress or

498
00:15:50,718 –> 00:15:55,908
[ramsey_d_smith]: somebody is gonna have to take some
action to source that money to make up

499
00:15:56,008 –> 00:15:57,790
[ramsey_d_smith]: that short fall that’s now being covered

500
00:15:57,720 –> 00:15:57,740

00:17:32,916 –> 00:17:33,161
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

579
00:17:32,920 –> 00:17:34,481
[kerry_h_pechter]: worth it measurably

580
00:17:34,446 –> 00:17:34,729
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

581
00:17:34,821 –> 00:17:36,843
[kerry_h_pechter]: in terms of what it would cost
you

582
00:17:37,086 –> 00:17:37,106
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

583
00:17:37,463 –> 00:17:40,376

[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

585
00:17:40,597 –> 00:17:43,141
[kerry_h_pechter]: into the investment market to either save
enough

00:17:43,056 –> 00:17:43,317
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

587
00:17:43,481 –> 00:17:45,705
[kerry_h_pechter]: to insure yourself against those same risks

588
00:17:45,576 –> 00:17:45,596
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

589
00:17:46,246 –> 00:17:47,588
[kerry_h_pechter]: or to buy insurance

590
00:17:47,505 –> 00:17:47,526
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

591
00:17:47,648 –> 00:17:50,573
[kerry_h_pechter]: against those same risks from an insurance
company

592
00:17:50,466 –> 00:17:51,186
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

593
00:17:51,334 –> 00:17:54,240
[kerry_h_pechter]: no matter what the premiums go up

594
00:17:54,186 –> 00:17:54,655
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

595
00:17:54,260 –> 00:17:56,265
[kerry_h_pechter]: we’re talking about a twenty percent gap
no matter

596
00:17:56,166 –> 00:17:56,448
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

597
00:17:56,345 –> 00:18:01,806
[kerry_h_pechter]: what the premiums go up to or
how much the benefits go down that if

598
00:18:01,906 –> 00:18:03,288
[kerry_h_pechter]: it is still going

599
00:18:03,239 –> 00:18:05,316
[ramsey_d_smith]: ah

600
00:18:03,369 –> 00:18:06,334
[kerry_h_pechter]: to be an incredible value and

601
00:18:06,276 –> 00:18:06,537
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

602
00:18:06,834 –> 00:18:08,117

[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

604
00:18:08,157 –> 00:18:13,085
[kerry_h_pechter]: to me that it seems unfortunate to
me that even the pro social security crowd

605
00:18:13,726 –> 00:18:14,007
[kerry_h_pechter]: or say

606
00:18:14,526 –> 00:18:14,908
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

607
00:18:14,770 –> 00:18:17,581
[kerry_h_pechter]: the bi partisan policy center that

608
00:18:18,546 –> 00:18:18,772
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

609
00:18:19,346 –> 00:18:19,486
[kerry_h_pechter]: that

610
00:18:19,509 –> 00:18:19,530
[paul_tyler]: m

611
00:18:19,846 –> 00:18:20,568
[kerry_h_pechter]: weighs in on this

612
00:18:20,556 –> 00:18:20,801
[ramsey_d_smith]: yes

613
00:18:20,728 –> 00:18:24,855
[kerry_h_pechter]: a lot of times with a lot
of credibility they have all adopted

614
00:18:24,546 –> 00:18:25,536
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

615
00:18:25,556 –> 00:18:25,656
[kerry_h_pechter]: the

616
00:18:25,686 –> 00:18:26,052
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

617
00:18:25,756 –> 00:18:27,519
[kerry_h_pechter]: investment view of social

618
00:18:27,516 –> 00:18:27,717
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

619
00:18:27,539 –> 00:18:31,686
[kerry_h_pechter]: security and saying well it’s not that
much more expensive or

620
00:18:31,776 –> 00:18:33,844
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

621
00:18:32,207 –> 00:18:37,194
[kerry_h_pechter]: maybe we should invest some of that
money in stocks and they are abandoning

622
00:18:36,936 –> 00:18:37,137
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

623
00:18:38,646 –> 00:18:41,491
[kerry_h_pechter]: the real the true story

624
00:18:41,745 –> 00:18:41,766
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

625
00:18:41,751 –> 00:18:41,791
[kerry_h_pechter]: of

626
00:18:41,766 –> 00:18:42,636
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

627
00:18:42,072 –> 00:18:47,561
[kerry_h_pechter]: the true justification for sociacurity it’s insurance
it’s called social

628
00:18:47,756 –> 00:18:47,857
[ramsey_d_smith]: ah

629
00:18:47,841 –> 00:18:49,224
[kerry_h_pechter]: insurance for

630
00:18:49,084 –> 00:18:49,145
[ramsey_d_smith]: ye

631
00:18:49,384 –> 00:18:56,716
[kerry_h_pechter]: a reason it’s not an investment there
is no fund that’s generating returns an insurance

632
00:18:56,756 –> 00:19:02,085
[kerry_h_pechter]: company doesn’t give you back the money
that you put in it gives you a

633
00:19:02,205 –> 00:19:02,346
[kerry_h_pechter]: cur

634
00:19:02,286 –> 00:19:02,567
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

635
00:19:02,446 –> 00:19:10,369
[kerry_h_pechter]: and it pays a claim if you
experience an insurable event insurance is not an

636
00:19:10,469 –> 00:19:17,801
[kerry_h_pechter]: investment it’s an offloading of risk and
that offloading of risk is extremely valuable and

637
00:19:18,162 –> 00:19:19,203
[kerry_h_pechter]: in in our investment

638
00:19:19,058 –> 00:19:19,219
[ramsey_d_smith]: is he

639
00:19:19,283 –> 00:19:19,684

[ramsey_d_smith]: freezing up for you too

641
00:19:20,245 –> 00:19:25,474
[kerry_h_pechter]: which all attuned to you know because
of our involvement in for one k we

642
00:19:25,574 –> 00:19:26,716
[kerry_h_pechter]: have lost sight of

643
00:19:26,625 –> 00:19:26,646
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

644
00:19:27,397 –> 00:19:28,118
[kerry_h_pechter]: what the value

645
00:19:27,846 –> 00:19:27,966
[ramsey_d_smith]: ah

646
00:19:28,198 –> 00:19:32,465
[kerry_h_pechter]: of insurance is it’s easy to lose

[ramsey_d_smith]: yes

648
00:19:33,006 –> 00:19:33,106

[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

650
00:19:33,147 –> 00:19:37,774
[kerry_h_pechter]: it’s very easy to lose sight of
the value of the coverage and yet

[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

652
00:19:37,814 –> 00:19:39,577
[kerry_h_pechter]: we all know what the value of
the coverage is

00:19:39,546 –> 00:19:40,536
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

654
00:19:39,637 –> 00:19:41,080
[kerry_h_pechter]: every time somebody rams

655
00:19:40,830 –> 00:19:41,092

[kerry_h_pechter]: and or burns our hat

659
00:19:44,583 –> 00:19:44,764
[paul_tyler]: yeah

660
00:19:44,647 –> 00:19:44,871
[kerry_h_pechter]: down

661
00:19:44,866 –> 00:19:50,495
[ramsey_d_smith]: all right yeah so we’re going to
agree with you because we were sort of

662
00:19:51,537 –> 00:19:52,038
[ramsey_d_smith]: were focusing

663
00:19:51,870 –> 00:19:52,113
[paul_tyler]: oh

664
00:19:52,058 –> 00:19:58,330
[ramsey_d_smith]: the insurance industry and the the value
one of

665
00:19:58,320 –> 00:19:59,160
[paul_tyler]: oh

666
00:19:58,370 –> 00:20:02,382
[ramsey_d_smith]: the challenges the value of insurance is
sometimes very hard for

667
00:20:02,520 –> 00:20:02,843
[paul_tyler]: oh

668
00:20:03,976 –> 00:20:06,780
[ramsey_d_smith]: people to appreciate or perceive or the
value

669
00:20:06,450 –> 00:20:06,690
[paul_tyler]: oh

670
00:20:06,861 –> 00:20:12,510
[ramsey_d_smith]: of it to them in the first
order and in the second order the real

671
00:20:12,650 –> 00:20:16,677
[ramsey_d_smith]: cost of providing them with that value
i think it’s hard for peopl two to

672
00:20:16,737 –> 00:20:18,560
[ramsey_d_smith]: appreciate and so one of the challenges

673
00:20:18,330 –> 00:20:18,453
[paul_tyler]: ye

674
00:20:19,381 –> 00:20:21,846
[ramsey_d_smith]: carry that i think that the government
will have

675
00:20:22,137 –> 00:20:22,319
[kerry_h_pechter]: yes

676
00:20:22,927 –> 00:20:26,914
[ramsey_d_smith]: is the same one that that we
often have in this industry which is that

677
00:20:27,916 –> 00:20:33,225
[ramsey_d_smith]: um hat in fact this is more
valuable than perhaps you know you not you

678
00:20:33,385 –> 00:20:39,395
[ramsey_d_smith]: but like the sort of the persona
of the consumer can can necessarily sort of

679
00:20:39,455 –> 00:20:45,149
[ramsey_d_smith]: quantify i appreciate and in fact in
a in a strange way you should want

680
00:20:45,269 –> 00:20:50,277
[ramsey_d_smith]: to you should want you should want
a you should want somebody to come to

681
00:20:50,317 –> 00:20:53,463
[ramsey_d_smith]: you and say you know it’s going
to cost you a bit more but it’s

682
00:20:53,523 –> 00:20:58,050
[ramsey_d_smith]: so valuable and i can help you
understand how valuable it is that that you

683
00:20:58,170 –> 00:21:02,257
[ramsey_d_smith]: want you want to be paying more
and you want everybody else in the society

684
00:21:02,297 –> 00:21:06,164
[ramsey_d_smith]: to pay more to maintain this very
sort of very valuable benefit but that is

685
00:21:06,284 –> 00:21:07,045
[ramsey_d_smith]: very hard to do

686
00:21:08,158 –> 00:21:08,339
[kerry_h_pechter]: well

687
00:21:08,236 –> 00:21:08,417
[ramsey_d_smith]: arry

688
00:21:08,560 –> 00:21:08,621
[kerry_h_pechter]: it

689
00:21:08,679 –> 00:21:08,799
[ramsey_d_smith]: it’s

690
00:21:08,721 –> 00:21:08,822
[kerry_h_pechter]: is

691
00:21:08,860 –> 00:21:09,021
[ramsey_d_smith]: very

692
00:21:08,940 –> 00:21:09,690
[paul_tyler]: oh

693
00:21:09,061 –> 00:21:11,616
[ramsey_d_smith]: hard and yeah

694
00:21:11,156 –> 00:21:12,879
[kerry_h_pechter]: it’s well it’s hard to do because

695
00:21:12,776 –> 00:21:12,997
[ramsey_d_smith]: go ahead

696
00:21:13,580 –> 00:21:15,503
[kerry_h_pechter]: for a simple reason social security

697
00:21:15,636 –> 00:21:15,919
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

698
00:21:15,663 –> 00:21:20,792
[kerry_h_pechter]: you can’t look at social people people
want to look at it it’s very it’s

699
00:21:21,052 –> 00:21:21,793
[kerry_h_pechter]: almost impossible

700
00:21:21,576 –> 00:21:21,857
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

701
00:21:21,853 –> 00:21:25,927
[kerry_h_pechter]: to look at insurance as an asset
it’s not priced

702
00:21:25,716 –> 00:21:25,958
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

703
00:21:26,027 –> 00:21:27,389
[kerry_h_pechter]: as an asset it’s not

704
00:21:27,456 –> 00:21:27,738
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

705
00:21:27,510 –> 00:21:30,715
[kerry_h_pechter]: traded as an asset it’s not inherited
as an asset

706
00:21:30,876 –> 00:21:31,956
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

707
00:21:31,376 –> 00:21:36,444
[kerry_h_pechter]: it’s it’s and it only pays out
if an insurable event occurs which means you

708
00:21:36,505 –> 00:21:39,880
[kerry_h_pechter]: may never get your money but that
doesn’t

709
00:21:39,666 –> 00:21:39,946
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

710
00:21:40,021 –> 00:21:43,819
[kerry_h_pechter]: make it less valuable while you have
it

711
00:21:44,106 –> 00:21:44,308
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

712
00:21:44,160 –> 00:21:48,868
[kerry_h_pechter]: because it by taking certain kinds of
risk off your plate it allows you to

713
00:21:48,948 –> 00:21:52,374
[kerry_h_pechter]: take other risks like invest in

714
00:21:52,807 –> 00:21:53,009
[ramsey_d_smith]: sure

715
00:21:52,834 –> 00:21:57,803
[kerry_h_pechter]: if you you people don’t realize that
if social security went away they might have

716
00:21:57,863 –> 00:22:02,491
[kerry_h_pechter]: to in order to maintain their same
risk profile which everyone understands

717
00:22:02,106 –> 00:22:03,669
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh oh

718
00:22:03,432 –> 00:22:05,415
[kerry_h_pechter]: they would have to put more of
their money into bond

719
00:22:05,226 –> 00:22:06,036
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

720
00:22:05,616 –> 00:22:06,758
[kerry_h_pechter]: s because

721
00:22:06,546 –> 00:22:06,790
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

722
00:22:06,838 –> 00:22:09,563
[kerry_h_pechter]: so security is a bond portfolio

723
00:22:09,456 –> 00:22:09,658
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

724
00:22:10,365 –> 00:22:17,239
[kerry_h_pechter]: and and and i and i don’t
know why it’s it’s just very difficult to

725
00:22:17,299 –> 00:22:22,392
[kerry_h_pechter]: get this across and and i certainly
don’t want to be the only person saying

726
00:22:22,452 –> 00:22:23,154
[kerry_h_pechter]: this because

727
00:22:23,256 –> 00:22:23,536
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

728
00:22:23,936 –> 00:22:27,644
[kerry_h_pechter]: i mean no one is going to
believe me alone even though i’m

729
00:22:28,545 –> 00:22:28,705
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

730
00:22:28,756 –> 00:22:30,225
[kerry_h_pechter]: right so

731
00:22:31,571 –> 00:22:32,232
[ramsey_d_smith]: and passionate

732
00:22:34,140 –> 00:22:34,830
[paul_tyler]: yeah

733
00:22:34,299 –> 00:22:34,940
[kerry_h_pechter]: and i can

734
00:22:34,986 –> 00:22:35,269
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

735
00:22:35,020 –> 00:22:36,763
[kerry_h_pechter]: marshal a lot of evidence for this

736
00:22:36,696 –> 00:22:37,596
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

737
00:22:36,843 –> 00:22:37,925
[kerry_h_pechter]: and i can bring in people

738
00:22:37,706 –> 00:22:37,866
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

739
00:22:37,985 –> 00:22:38,866
[kerry_h_pechter]: who will who are

740
00:22:38,820 –> 00:22:39,046
[paul_tyler]: oh

741
00:22:38,946 –> 00:22:42,012
[kerry_h_pechter]: smarter than me and better qualified than
me to explain it in greater

742
00:22:41,817 –> 00:22:41,958
[ramsey_d_smith]: just

743
00:22:42,052 –> 00:22:47,020
[kerry_h_pechter]: detail but but i believe that the
problem is that social security and its defenders

744
00:22:47,100 –> 00:22:47,701
[kerry_h_pechter]: are playing

745
00:22:47,466 –> 00:22:47,667
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

746
00:22:48,042 –> 00:22:51,107
[kerry_h_pechter]: the game they’re playing a running they’re
trying to play a running game done

747
00:22:51,006 –> 00:22:51,274
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

748
00:22:51,207 –> 00:22:55,194
[kerry_h_pechter]: game running gun game when their actual
game

749
00:22:55,116 –> 00:22:55,776
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

750
00:22:55,374 –> 00:23:00,480
[kerry_h_pechter]: is a half court game and and
if they can’t if they have to play

751
00:23:00,980 –> 00:23:04,163
[kerry_h_pechter]: the running gun then they’re going to
lose that basketball game

752
00:23:04,746 –> 00:23:04,966
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

753
00:23:05,264 –> 00:23:08,569
[kerry_h_pechter]: and and go celtic

754
00:23:08,526 –> 00:23:08,746
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

755
00:23:08,749 –> 00:23:11,697
[kerry_h_pechter]: because i’m from philadelphia and it might

756
00:23:11,559 –> 00:23:11,580
[paul_tyler]: m

757
00:23:11,737 –> 00:23:14,023
[kerry_h_pechter]: as well be the celtic rather than
the

758
00:23:13,956 –> 00:23:14,296
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

759
00:23:15,056 –> 00:23:15,761
[kerry_h_pechter]: west coasters

760
00:23:16,552 –> 00:23:19,535
[paul_tyler]: well well you know argue

761
00:23:19,326 –> 00:23:19,587
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

762
00:23:19,675 –> 00:23:22,117
[paul_tyler]: we’ve already seen those reductions you know
carry and

763
00:23:22,326 –> 00:23:23,406
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

764
00:23:22,598 –> 00:23:27,374
[paul_tyler]: tell me how if you think i’m
how you re frame or disagree with my

765
00:23:27,475 –> 00:23:32,523
[paul_tyler]: perspective on this you mentioned cut benefits
we know how popular that is okay

766
00:23:32,526 –> 00:23:32,546
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

767
00:23:32,583 –> 00:23:34,506
[paul_tyler]: we can raise premiums where

768
00:23:35,166 –> 00:23:35,607
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

769
00:23:35,728 –> 00:23:40,937
[paul_tyler]: we’re kind of getting to and with
that today the third is need base testing

770
00:23:41,157 –> 00:23:41,418
[paul_tyler]: you know

771
00:23:42,216 –> 00:23:42,318
[ramsey_d_smith]: ye

772
00:23:42,660 –> 00:23:46,787
[paul_tyler]: now we saw that the full retirement
age start to creep out that that arguable

773
00:23:46,847 –> 00:23:50,535
[paul_tyler]: was a take away that was a
reduction social security benefits do you think we’ll

774
00:23:50,575 –> 00:23:50,695
[paul_tyler]: see

775
00:23:50,637 –> 00:23:50,801
[kerry_h_pechter]: right

776
00:23:50,776 –> 00:23:55,448
[paul_tyler]: need space is needs base testing an
effective way to make the numbers work better

777
00:23:55,360 –> 00:23:55,441
[ramsey_d_smith]: ah

778
00:23:57,157 –> 00:24:04,183
[kerry_h_pechter]: you have to remember needs base testing
uh would would go along with a complete

779
00:24:04,344 –> 00:24:08,833
[kerry_h_pechter]: overhaul now if you’re in a country
overseas that like

780
00:24:10,146 –> 00:24:10,450
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

781
00:24:10,326 –> 00:24:12,108
[kerry_h_pechter]: i don’t know spain or

782
00:24:12,396 –> 00:24:12,577
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

783
00:24:12,709 –> 00:24:13,591
[kerry_h_pechter]: other countries that have

784
00:24:13,716 –> 00:24:14,856
[ramsey_d_smith]: my

785
00:24:13,771 –> 00:24:18,339
[kerry_h_pechter]: gone from a pago system like we
have to a investment system once

786
00:24:18,306 –> 00:24:18,552
[ramsey_d_smith]: yes

787
00:24:18,419 –> 00:24:19,521
[kerry_h_pechter]: you if you have

788
00:24:19,416 –> 00:24:19,436
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

789
00:24:19,581 –> 00:24:23,868
[kerry_h_pechter]: an investment based system a workplace country
ibution system like our far one k

790
00:24:24,420 –> 00:24:25,470
[paul_tyler]: yeah

791
00:24:24,549 –> 00:24:29,397
[kerry_h_pechter]: then you have to think about having
a minimum benefit for people who don’t make

792
00:24:29,457 –> 00:24:32,703
[kerry_h_pechter]: enough money and pay enough in so
it’s it’s the

793
00:24:32,646 –> 00:24:33,169
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

794
00:24:33,244 –> 00:24:34,105
[kerry_h_pechter]: the minimum

795
00:24:34,296 –> 00:24:35,076
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

796
00:24:34,346 –> 00:24:34,806
[kerry_h_pechter]: benefit

797
00:24:35,076 –> 00:24:35,558
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

798
00:24:35,608 –> 00:24:36,970
[kerry_h_pechter]: the means tested benefit

799
00:24:37,056 –> 00:24:39,323
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

800
00:24:37,771 –> 00:24:40,215
[kerry_h_pechter]: that is an artifact that is

801
00:24:40,356 –> 00:24:40,641
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

802
00:24:40,516 –> 00:24:41,638
[kerry_h_pechter]: a functionality

803
00:24:41,646 –> 00:24:42,014
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

804
00:24:42,239 –> 00:24:44,963
[kerry_h_pechter]: of a different kind of retirement system

805
00:24:45,495 –> 00:24:45,516
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

806
00:24:45,785 –> 00:24:49,130
[kerry_h_pechter]: and so we i think it would
probably

807
00:24:49,065 –> 00:24:49,086
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

808
00:24:49,230 –> 00:24:50,352
[kerry_h_pechter]: be too expensive

809
00:24:50,256 –> 00:24:51,756
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

810
00:24:50,953 –> 00:24:56,723
[kerry_h_pechter]: to guarantee a certain level of you
know say twenty percent of retires who are

811
00:24:56,923 –> 00:25:01,871
[kerry_h_pechter]: may not even qualify right now for
so security benefit if we guaranteed them eight

812
00:25:01,911 –> 00:25:04,315
[kerry_h_pechter]: hundred dollars a month with no on
a means

813
00:25:04,116 –> 00:25:04,356
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

814
00:25:04,416 –> 00:25:11,168
[kerry_h_pechter]: tested basis anyway that would that in
itself would would require jumping off of the

815
00:25:11,228 –> 00:25:11,889
[kerry_h_pechter]: pago system

816
00:25:11,646 –> 00:25:11,931
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

817
00:25:12,872 –> 00:25:13,814
[kerry_h_pechter]: is that is that clear

818
00:25:13,979 –> 00:25:14,222
[ramsey_d_smith]: yes

819
00:25:14,157 –> 00:25:14,670
[paul_tyler]: hm

820
00:25:15,356 –> 00:25:15,757
[kerry_h_pechter]: it’s really

821
00:25:15,740 –> 00:25:15,925
[paul_tyler]: yes

822
00:25:15,817 –> 00:25:16,999
[kerry_h_pechter]: a facet of a different

823
00:25:16,950 –> 00:25:17,092
[paul_tyler]: yeah

824
00:25:17,200 –> 00:25:23,932
[kerry_h_pechter]: kind of financing of retirement so and
then i think that and that brings around

825
00:25:24,073 –> 00:25:26,087
[kerry_h_pechter]: another subject which

826
00:25:26,616 –> 00:25:26,636
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

827
00:25:26,969 –> 00:25:30,179
[kerry_h_pechter]: which we have to consider is that
switching from a pago

828
00:25:30,156 –> 00:25:33,096
[ramsey_d_smith]: yah

829
00:25:30,320 –> 00:25:37,723
[kerry_h_pechter]: system to four or one i mean
a bigger four or one case system with

830
00:25:37,863 –> 00:25:39,806
[kerry_h_pechter]: less risk in it and

831
00:25:39,876 –> 00:25:40,776
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

832
00:25:40,307 –> 00:25:42,530
[kerry_h_pechter]: and then bringing in a minimum benefit

833
00:25:42,993 –> 00:25:43,174
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

834
00:25:43,010 –> 00:25:48,016
[kerry_h_pechter]: wow the negotiations and the design i

835
00:25:48,015 –> 00:25:48,036
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

836
00:25:48,056 –> 00:25:54,947
[kerry_h_pechter]: mean the amount of work politically and
economic and actuarial and investment and market and

837
00:25:55,545 –> 00:25:55,566
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

838
00:25:55,608 –> 00:25:57,491
[kerry_h_pechter]: i mean the amount of work that
would have to

839
00:25:57,465 –> 00:25:57,486
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

840
00:25:57,551 –> 00:26:06,716
[kerry_h_pechter]: go into that kind of transition utterly
utterly dwarfs the amount of effort it’s going

841
00:26:06,796 –> 00:26:11,504
[kerry_h_pechter]: to take for us to tweak social
security so that there’s a non event

842
00:26:11,886 –> 00:26:12,189
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

843
00:26:11,904 –> 00:26:13,832
[kerry_h_pechter]: and that people can stop worrying

844
00:26:13,626 –> 00:26:14,030
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

845
00:26:13,913 –> 00:26:19,391
[kerry_h_pechter]: about it and and ironically you know
all these people these younger people who aren’t

846
00:26:19,411 –> 00:26:19,772
[kerry_h_pechter]: collecting

847
00:26:19,800 –> 00:26:20,022
[paul_tyler]: yeah

848
00:26:19,832 –> 00:26:22,997
[kerry_h_pechter]: social security they are paying fifteen per
cent into

849
00:26:22,830 –> 00:26:22,850
[paul_tyler]: m

850
00:26:23,057 –> 00:26:26,944
[kerry_h_pechter]: their out of their pay checks and
thinking that they’re not getting

851
00:26:26,686 –> 00:26:26,787
[ramsey_d_smith]: ah

852
00:26:27,084 –> 00:26:28,887
[kerry_h_pechter]: anything when they reach how

853
00:26:28,896 –> 00:26:29,324
[ramsey_d_smith]: ye

854
00:26:29,448 –> 00:26:30,249
[kerry_h_pechter]: insane

855
00:26:30,186 –> 00:26:30,206
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

856
00:26:31,091 –> 00:26:32,974
[kerry_h_pechter]: is that that they’re they’re

857
00:26:33,036 –> 00:26:33,056
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

858
00:26:33,054 –> 00:26:37,561
[kerry_h_pechter]: giving up a sixth of their pay
for something that they don’t believe i mean

859
00:26:37,742 –> 00:26:39,645
[kerry_h_pechter]: why are they not rioting

860
00:26:39,387 –> 00:26:39,467
[ramsey_d_smith]: ah

861
00:26:40,206 –> 00:26:43,998
[kerry_h_pechter]: in the streets instead of paying fifteen

862
00:26:43,659 –> 00:26:43,680
[paul_tyler]: m

863
00:26:43,665 –> 00:26:43,686
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

864
00:26:44,039 –> 00:26:47,952
[kerry_h_pechter]: per cent it makes no sense so
on some level

865
00:26:47,955 –> 00:26:47,976
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

866
00:26:48,000 –> 00:26:48,344
[paul_tyler]: oh

867
00:26:48,052 –> 00:26:50,137
[kerry_h_pechter]: they must believe they’re

868
00:26:50,085 –> 00:26:50,106
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

869
00:26:50,197 –> 00:26:56,908
[kerry_h_pechter]: going to get that benefit or else
i mean i would tell my kids now

870
00:26:57,875 –> 00:27:01,441
[kerry_h_pechter]: it’s time to go to the streets

871
00:27:04,506 –> 00:27:04,686
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

872
00:27:04,544 –> 00:27:04,925
[paul_tyler]: time to go

00:27:07,834 –> 00:27:08,055
[paul_tyler]: near

881
00:27:08,007 –> 00:27:08,327
[kerry_h_pechter]: per cent

882
00:27:08,195 –> 00:27:08,336
[paul_tyler]: near

[paul_tyler]: yeah

890
00:27:13,492 –> 00:27:16,054
[kerry_h_pechter]: from me if you’re if you’re not

891
00:27:15,726 –> 00:27:16,029
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

892
00:27:16,734 –> 00:27:17,555

[ramsey_d_smith]: so

894
00:27:17,652 –> 00:27:17,835
[paul_tyler]: right

895
00:27:17,827 –> 00:27:20,412
[ramsey_d_smith]: well how are you getting to the
fifteen per cent that’s the that’s the pica

896
00:27:20,493 –> 00:27:24,522
[ramsey_d_smith]: that somebody sees in their w to
plus the employer contribution together is that how

897
00:27:24,582 –> 00:27:25,524
[ramsey_d_smith]: you get the fifteen per cent

898
00:27:26,767 –> 00:27:28,871
[kerry_h_pechter]: oh yeah because everyone all economists

899
00:27:28,746 –> 00:27:30,015
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

900
00:27:28,971 –> 00:27:34,380
[kerry_h_pechter]: agree and and i’m speaking now for
all economists the agree

901
00:27:34,086 –> 00:27:34,287
[ramsey_d_smith]: yes

902
00:27:34,500 –> 00:27:36,323
[kerry_h_pechter]: that that you know whether

903
00:27:36,390 –> 00:27:36,617
[paul_tyler]: yeah

904
00:27:37,285 –> 00:27:42,162
[kerry_h_pechter]: the employ it takes its share of
the pay roll tax out of its compensation

905
00:27:41,588 –> 00:27:41,608
[ramsey_d_smith]: i

906
00:27:42,322 –> 00:27:44,561
[kerry_h_pechter]: budget and so that

907
00:27:44,428 –> 00:27:44,591
[ramsey_d_smith]: sure

908
00:27:44,963 –> 00:27:46,932
[kerry_h_pechter]: whether it whether it would give you
that

909
00:27:47,895 –> 00:27:47,916
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

910
00:27:47,936 –> 00:27:48,477
[kerry_h_pechter]: they it would give

911
00:27:48,486 –> 00:27:48,506
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

912
00:27:48,537 –> 00:27:49,378
[kerry_h_pechter]: you that income

913
00:27:49,596 –> 00:27:49,940
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

914
00:27:49,618 –> 00:27:54,146
[kerry_h_pechter]: that’s an interesting thought experiment of whether
you would you know you’d get the extra

915
00:27:54,767 –> 00:27:55,989
[kerry_h_pechter]: six percent if the

916
00:27:56,280 –> 00:27:57,270
[paul_tyler]: oh

917
00:27:56,570 –> 00:28:01,518
[kerry_h_pechter]: employer didn’t have to pay any payroll
tax but i’ll tell you believe me when

918
00:28:02,420 –> 00:28:07,128
[kerry_h_pechter]: a country that goes to a defined
defined contribution

919
00:28:07,176 –> 00:28:07,498
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

920
00:28:07,208 –> 00:28:11,795
[kerry_h_pechter]: plan with minimum benefits those they have
mandatory

921
00:28:10,995 –> 00:28:12,416
[ramsey_d_smith]: m yeah m

922
00:28:12,976 –> 00:28:14,118
[kerry_h_pechter]: employer contributions

923
00:28:14,346 –> 00:28:14,547
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

924
00:28:14,779 –> 00:28:16,502
[kerry_h_pechter]: so get real if we’re

925
00:28:16,444 –> 00:28:16,566
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

926
00:28:16,622 –> 00:28:18,205
[kerry_h_pechter]: going away to an investment based

927
00:28:18,036 –> 00:28:18,445
[ramsey_d_smith]: oh

928
00:28:18,265 –> 00:28:21,631
[kerry_h_pechter]: system from sociasecurity we’re going to a
new kind

929
00:28:21,465 –> 00:28:21,486
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

930
00:28:21,711 –> 00:28:22,532
[kerry_h_pechter]: of mandatory

931
00:28:22,337 –> 00:28:22,641
[ramsey_d_smith]: yes

932
00:28:22,672 –> 00:28:25,788
[kerry_h_pechter]: it’s not going to be optional under
those circumstances

933
00:28:25,211 –> 00:28:25,293
[ramsey_d_smith]: ah

934
00:28:25,908 –> 00:28:28,052
[kerry_h_pechter]: for employes to benefit and an employe

935
00:28:28,056 –> 00:28:28,318
[ramsey_d_smith]: my

936
00:28:28,092 –> 00:28:35,556
[kerry_h_pechter]: contribution is in australia or israel or
cost erica that’s going to be bigger what

937
00:28:35,676 –> 00:28:39,883
[kerry_h_pechter]: people have to pay now and people
have an option now to whether to contribute

938
00:28:39,923 –> 00:28:42,768
[kerry_h_pechter]: to their social security they’re not going
to it’s going to be more than six

939
00:28:42,868 –> 00:28:47,556
[kerry_h_pechter]: per cent so that’s what i’m saying
when it’s this is just not going to

940
00:28:47,596 –> 00:28:51,262
[kerry_h_pechter]: be like throwing a lever and half
of your social security budget goes into the

941
00:28:51,282 –> 00:28:53,746
[kerry_h_pechter]: stock market no that’s not what’s going
to happen

942
00:28:54,126 –> 00:28:54,146
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

943
00:28:54,167 –> 00:28:55,269
[kerry_h_pechter]: i mean if it does then

944
00:28:55,322 –> 00:28:55,506
[paul_tyler]: yeah

945
00:28:56,130 –> 00:29:00,800
[kerry_h_pechter]: it’s just it’s just making kicking a
problem on the road because then when

946
00:29:00,697 –> 00:29:00,717
[ramsey_d_smith]: m

947
00:29:00,840 –> 00:29:01,061
[kerry_h_pechter]: people

948
00:29:00,960 –> 00:29:01,830
[paul_tyler]: yeah

949
00:29:01,141 –> 00:29:02,023
[kerry_h_pechter]: realize how much risk

950
00:29:01,950 –> 00:29:02,274
[paul_tyler]: oh

951
00:29:02,083 –> 00:29:07,106
[kerry_h_pechter]: they’re carrying that they didn’t use to
carry that they’re going to start either they’re

952
00:29:07,186 –> 00:29:07,687
[kerry_h_pechter]: completely

953
00:29:07,680 –> 00:29:07,700
[paul_tyler]: m

954
00:29:07,827 –> 00:29:12,295
[kerry_h_pechter]: financially illiterate or they’re just going to
start i mean they may absorb it the

955
00:29:12,315 –> 00:29:16,061
[kerry_h_pechter]: way people are now absorbing a fifteen
percent tax without thinking that they’re going to

956
00:29:16,101 –> 00:29:17,984
[kerry_h_pechter]: get anything for it i mean get

957
00:29:17,956 –> 00:29:18,076
[ramsey_d_smith]: well

958
00:29:18,024 –> 00:29:18,145
[kerry_h_pechter]: your

959
00:29:18,096 –> 00:29:21,960
[ramsey_d_smith]: they’re only because hey’re only seeing seven
or eight percent of it right even i

960
00:29:22,040 –> 00:29:25,944
[ramsey_d_smith]: agree with you with the the from
an comes perspective but i think that most

961
00:29:26,044 –> 00:29:30,583
[ramsey_d_smith]: people only see the you know the
face that shows up on their pay check

962
00:29:30,623 –> 00:29:31,546
[ramsey_d_smith]: and that’s painful enough

963
00:29:31,510 –> 00:29:31,691
[paul_tyler]: yeah

964
00:29:32,007 –> 00:29:32,127
[ramsey_d_smith]: so

965
00:29:32,335 –> 00:29:32,516
[paul_tyler]: yeah

966
00:29:32,516 –> 00:29:33,657
[kerry_h_pechter]: i don’t know if they even i

967
00:29:33,642 –> 00:29:33,742
[paul_tyler]: all

968
00:29:33,738 –> 00:29:33,898
[kerry_h_pechter]: don’t

969
00:29:33,803 –> 00:29:33,944
[paul_tyler]: right

970
00:29:33,938 –> 00:29:34,038
[kerry_h_pechter]: know

971
00:29:33,964 –> 00:29:34,125
[paul_tyler]: well

972
00:29:34,098 –> 00:29:37,945
[kerry_h_pechter]: if they even they even think about
it if you’re making enough money so that

973
00:29:37,985 –> 00:29:38,906
[kerry_h_pechter]: you’ve reached your pier

974
00:29:38,736 –> 00:29:40,085
[ramsey_d_smith]: yeah

The Tragic Politicization of Annuities

No comments

Well, how about this for coincidence? As this regrettable exchange was playing out in real time, late at night and into the early morning, in the very middle of it I received an alert on my iPhone that episode 152 of That Annuity Show podcast had been released. If you are not familiar with That Annuity Show, it is a podcast that offers value to anyone who desires to better understand the benefits of annuities and their practical applications. The podcast attracts a wide variety of guests who address diverse topics including academic research, marketing, technology,  innovation, product development and more. Paul Tyler, CMO OF Nassau RE, hosts the podcast along with Ramsey Smith, Founder & CEO of ALEX.fyi. They are frequently joined by guest host Bruno Caron, Associate Director at A.M, Best.

Picture this. I’m listening to the podcast while simultaneously participating in this “war of words,” over annuities, when I get to the point in the interview where Caron calls attention to a statement found on page 61 of my book, Constrained Investor, where I state that:

“Annuities remind me of politics. They ignite polarized beliefs that sometimes make it difficult to have fruitful discussions.”

“Wow! I am living this reality. It is just like politics!”

It is Not About a “Side”

The LinkedIn exchange inspired numerous comments from other LinkedIn members. In response to one made by Dr. Donald Moine, I explained that “I am pro intelligent retirement income planning. That makes me, by definition, pro-annuities, AND pro-investments. It is hard for some people to comprehend that neither ‘camp’ is the answer, but both are vital parts of the answer.”

After 18 years spent working in the field of income distribution planning, I can tell you that nothing is truer than this: No single “silo” is the answer to retirement income. In 2005, I became a founding member and director of the non-profit Retirement Income Industry Association, an organization whose mission it was to produce research benefiting from, “A view across the silos.” The association did pioneering work in communicating the need for diverse business silos to join together in order to craft the next generation of retirement income solutions.

Because asset management and insurance are equally vital components of proper income planning, prejudices against annuities like those espoused by my word-fight opponent only serve to work against the best interests of the American retiree.

A New Way to Assess and Serve Retirees’ Needs

If you hold views that are preventing your embrace of annuities, let me offer you an alternative way to think about serving the needs of your retiree clients. At retirement, any client can be placed into one of three categories of investors:

  • Underfunded Investors
  • Overfunded Investors
  • Constrained Investors.

Because “underfunded” investors rely primarily upon Social Security for retirement income, clients you are working with will almost always fall into the “overfunded” and “constrained investor” categories.

Overfunded clients are a lucky minority who have more wealth assets than are required to create their desired level of retirement income.

Constrained investors represent a lucrative market of desirable clients because all of them arrive at retirement with assets. However, the amount they’ve saved is not high in relation to the level of income they require to support a, “minimally acceptable lifestyle.” This does not mean that constrained investors have low investment account balances. On the contrary, they may have multiple millions of dollars. When working with constrained investors, it is less about the “amount” and more about the “relationship” between the amount of accumulated savings, and the level of income the savings must produce.

For example, imagine a client, Paula, who is retiring with $925,000 in investible assets. After subtracting Social Security, Paula requires her savings to produce an annual income of $41,076. Let me explain how that number was determined.

Funding Paula’s Minimally Acceptable Lifestyle

An integral component of the Constrained Investor framework is the calculation of the investor’s monthly income needed to support a Minimally Acceptable Lifestyle. This is done by adding up all of the retiree’s vital expenses, and then, to account for the funding of lifestyle expenses, grossing that number up by a factor of 30%.

Paula’s monthly vital expenses total $4,325. By adding 30% to the vital expenses total, we arrive at Paula’s Minimally Acceptable Lifestyle need of $5,623 per month.

The next step is to calculate Paula’s income gap. This is done by subtracting her monthly Social Security retirement benefit from her total required monthly income.

$5,623 minus $2,200 = a monthly income gap of $3,423, or, on an annual basis, $41,076.

Now that we know that Paula needs her saving to fund her annual income need of  $41,076, we turn to Income-to-Assets Ratio. This gives us an uncomplicated way to determine if Paula is a constrained investor.

We simply divide the annual income needed by the amount of assets available to produce income. If the resulting percentage is 3% or higher, the client is a constrained investor.

In Paula’s case, we can see that she is indeed constrained. Dividing her annual income need of $41,076 by $925,000, give us a result of 4.44%. That is greater than 3%, so, Paula is a constrained investor.

What does that really mean? I can answer that in one word: caution.

Paula’s savings will be under pressure to produce monthly income that she must have. I cannot make this point strongly enough. Constrained investors share the common characteristic of having an absolute reliance upon their savings to produce income that is essential. This means that they cannot afford investing mistakes. Constrained investors lack the cash cushion to absorb the losses. Yet, because we seek to generate inflation-adjusted income, constrained investors need to be consistent investors with an appropriate degree of long-term exposure to risk assets.

This conundrum creates the need for an investing framework that delivers positive behavioral characteristics by placing its central emphasis on mitigating risks that can reduce or even entirely consume the retiree’s income. Specifically, I am referring to the management of timing risk and longevity risk.

The Constrained Investor framework features safe monthly paychecks throughout retirement, combined with risk mitigation, making it much easier for the retiree to remain durably invested  in risk assets through all market conditions.

Why Longevity Annuities Must Be Recommended

Constrained investors face a challenge in making their retirement incomes last for life. Systematic withdrawal plans with high “confidence rates” are no substitute for true longevity protection. This is where the recommendation of an annuity is absolutely essential.

If you, like my word-fight-opponent, hold negative views of annuities, it really is past time to let them go. Regardless of your business model, annuities have been transformed in order to easily accommodate your needs.

In my view, RIAs have no excuse to avoid annuities. Plenty are available with no commissions or surrender charges. There are also innovative “Contingent Deferred Annuities” that add lifetime income protection to client portfolios. And there are multiple fiduciary annuity marketplaces that facilitate both product selection and transaction handling. Fiduciary annuities appear in your portfolio management application like any other “wrapped” asset. No longer is there a rational argument to levied against annuities.

Out of Synch with Women’s Needs

If after all of this you still eschew annuities, I have a prediction for you: your rigid thinking is likely to cost you plenty in the years ahead. As women assume control over most of the available wealth assets, the male-dominated advisor community will reckon with a radically altered set of proprieties and investing preferences for which they are generally unprepared. As Blackrock recently stated, “Simply put, when it comes to money, men and women see the world quite differently.” BCG Consulting finds that, “Too many firms rely on broad assumptions about what women are looking for, resulting in products, services and messaging that can feel superficial at best and condescending at worst.”

Prior to launching the industry’s first retirement income solution developed expressly for “boomer” women, my firm did extensive research on gender-based differences in investing preferences. In comparison to men, Blackrock may actually be understating how radically different women in the “boomer” cohort view investing.

Men are all about ROI, historical performance and stock-picking. Considering that 86% of advisors are male, many advisors are currently unprepared to shift their investing orientation toward women’s top priorities: risk reduction, goals and confidence. Adding to this challenge is the phenomenon of male advisors alienating female spouses. When “boomer” husbands pass, seven out of 10 incumbent male advisors are fired by the widow. So, the problems goes well beyond advisors’ long-held investing recommendations. There are cultural, gender bias and stereotyping issues that advisors will also need to address.

What does this have to do with annuities? Everything. Annuities uniquely provide lifetime income security, they reduce risk and they make it easier for clients to reach defined goals. Continued rejection of annuities places advisors’ future success in jeopardy. I’m not overstating what is at stake. If you cannot, or will not, provide what the person who controls the assets is looking for, you will have little chance of gaining or maintaining a relationship.

A New Climate Demands New Answers

With interest rates rising, stock prices dropping, inflation surging and the Fed tightening, the 14-year engineered bull market in equities has ended. Whereas a “reverse dollar-cost-averaging” approach could have worked in the yesterday’s economic climate, it cannot work for millions of constrained investors in today’s.

We have entered a new era notable for a sharp focus on risk mitigation. Unlike my word-fight opponent, it is imperative advisors move past historical prejudices in favor of open-mindedness and a willingness to listen. Clients are not much concerned about annuity sales practices of 10, 20 or 50 years ago. They are, however, concerned about their financial security today, and tomorrow. I believe you will find it both professionally and personally rewarding if you offer them an opportunity to secure tomorrow, today.

Indexes must evolve with inflation, rising rates, says NAFA panel

No comments

By John Hilton

Many popular indexes supporting annuities and life insurance today might not work as well in a recessionary, high-inflation, and rising interest rate environment.

Those indexes underpin many big-selling products through a strong historical performance record. With the market on a strong 15-year growth run, most of the historical periods chosen for sales tools like illustrations show nothing but positive news.

Until recently.

To summarize the situation the industry finds itself in, Sarah Garrity recalled a quote from the 1988 movie, “Hoosiers”: “Don’t get caught watching the paint dry,” she said during a recent panel discussion at the National Association for Fixed Annuity’s Annuity Leadership Forum in Washington, D.C.

“I think that’s where we are right now in terms of product development and what we’re thinking about the future, that it’s not a time to stand still,” said Garrity, director of national sales for the annuity distribution team within BlackRock’s Retirement Group. “A lot of custom indices were perfectly positioned for outcomes of the past. And they, quite frankly, don’t address the challenge of inflation or the opportunity of rising rates.”

During a conference session last month in Washington, D.C., a similar panel posited that rising rates could open the door for annuities sold with risk-controlled indexes. These types of products will utilize, for example, a heavy bond component in order to reduce the risk elements.

Garrity agreed that volatility controlled indexes are sure to increase going forward. “There is no protection without performance with inflation where it is,” she said. “So I think that’s the first thing that we’re seeing in terms of how is this affecting product design.”

Inflation hedge

Industry veteran Sheryl Moore noted the growth of indexes during a recent Wink, Inc. webinar. When Moore started Wink, a industry intelligence firm, 17 years ago there were a dozen indexes. Today, there are at least 150 different indexes, many of them proprietary indexes developed by major carriers.

Most of these indexes are a mix of different indexes, and other assets like bonds. A standard index, such as the S&P 500, has a lengthy history of returns, upon which a reasonable projection can be made simply by looking back. Most proprietary indexes do not have this type of history.

Phillip Brzenk is global head of multi-asset indices at S&P Dow Jones Indices. He told the NAFA audience that gold is a great inflation hedge to have in an index mix.

“Gold is positive year to date 3% or 4% last time we checked,” he said. “So it’s thinking about how can you incorporate something like that into a broader benchmark to actually have that exposure, actually have a more direct inflation hedge in your index.”

Laurence Black is founder of The Index Standard, a firm that provides ratings on indexes. In a changing environment, indexes need to change as well, he said. Black used the analogy of a family who owns an SUV for when it’s raining, a sedan for country driving and a convertible for casual outings in nice weather.

“In the past, what maybe you had was one index that could cope with one environment,” he explained. “Unfortunately, we live in a much more complex world today. So I think what everyone needs to look for is more diverse packages. So if you think about an FIA, maybe what you want to see is different types of indices.

“Maybe what you want to see is a bunch of diverse indices that you can select that can give you those better outcomes.”

Themed indexes more popular

The panel agreed that “themed” indexes are resonating with conscientious investors. The most common example is environmental, social and governance (ESG) investments. Clients are asking specifically for ESG options, Brzenk said.

“I’ll tell you in the U.S., it’s definitely not going to be as prominent as in Europe,” he added. “In Europe, what we’re seeing is you basically need to have an ESG tilt in your offering, otherwise it won’t be looked at. I don’t think the U.S. will ever get to that point, but we definitely see merit to exploring some of these themes in isolation.”

An ESG investment is a stock that is rooted in values relating to environmental, social or governance issues, such as climate change, human rights, and data protection and privacy. For a stock to qualify as an ESG, it must undergo a rigorous evaluation process and adhere to certain principles set out by investment houses.

If the stock passes the initial evaluation, it is then scored based on the MSCI ESG index. ESGs can fall under three different categories in the U.S.: AAA-AA: Leaders, A-BBB: Average, and BB-B-CC: Laggard. This index rates organizations based on their exposure to ESG risks and how they manage those risks, and then assigns them one of the three categories above.

BlackRock had “a very successful launch” of its first ESG index within a fixed-index annuity last year, Garrity said. But it’s not so much the themes as the basic thought and construction put into an index, she added.

“When we think about product construction, what it should come down to at the end of the day, is how can we create the best index that’s going to create the best client outcome, regardless of a theme or a tilt?” she said. “At the end of the day, at least from our perspective, it really does come down to how can we create the most thoughtful index.”

3 Ways Alternatives Can Help Advisors Manage Investor Emotions

No comments

By Josh Vail

In the last few years, many alternatives have lagged broad stock markets, but recent market movement suggests a favorable shift.

For the year ending mid-May 2022, the rolling, three-month, annualized daily volatility of the S&P 500 has nearly doubled — from over 13% to over 25%. Returns for the S&P 500 were down over 18% and the AGG was down over 9.5%.

Meanwhile, many private investments fared much better, and the Wilshire’s Liquid Alternative Global Macro Index, a popular index in the liquid alternative space, was up 5.35% for the quarter.

Warren Buffet said, “Be fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful.” It’s hard to avoid letting emotions get the best of us when it comes to investing, which is why the market often follows investor whims.

Morningstar’s 2021 “Mind the Gap” study found that on average over the 10 years ending Dec. 31, 2020, investors realized 1.7% less than the funds their investments generated over the same span. Had those investors bought and held, they would have improved their return by one-sixth.

Alternatives offer important advantages in a portfolio. They have the potential to generate alpha; returns that are independent of the market; and they exhibit lower volatility. Perhaps their greatest advantage is their ability to help investors manage emotions.

An allocation to alternatives can help investors stay the course — like the “mother” of the investment portfolio. Here’s why alternatives are a lot like our moms:

Alternatives protect us from ourselves. Illiquid alternative investments create a barrier to sale, forcing investors to hold when they might otherwise sell.

Take real estate for example, which is largely considered one of greatest wealth-creation investments out there. One could argue that stocks historically outperform the underlying asset and yes, leverage plays an important role with regard to end results.

But the nature of real estate is such that investors are forced to make ­decisions counter to their rote ­behavioral instincts and hold through difficult ­periods. If there are barriers to sale, investors are less likely to look for the exits.
