Introducing the HIA Income Portfolio
with Frank Erzinger

We have a special event for the October Retirement Solutions SIG Meeting. Frank Erzinger of the Houston Investors Association (HIA) will speak about the HIA Income Portfolio, a model portfolio Frank has developed and managed for HIA since January 2020. HIA is winding down and Frank and many of the other members of HIA are coming over to the AAII Houston Chapter to participate in our investor educational events.

Frank will cover the history and background of the HIA Income Portfolio, its mission, and various guidelines that it uses to try and generate high single digit returns at a relatively low risk level. He will then review what is currently in the $500k portfolio and why. He will address the state of current markets and where income opportunities exist and where they don’t. Please join us to learn of new opportunities for investing for income and capital preservation and to share your ideas with us.

Frank Erzinger has BSc and MSc degrees in Chemical Engineering from the Universities of Wyoming and Southern California (USC) and an MBA from Houston University. He is a Professional Chemical Engineer in California. Frank worked in process engineering for several large engineering companies and then in general management consulting in energy and chemicals for McKinsey and Company and KPMG Peat Marwick.

Session 2

Financial Planning For and In Retirement

10:30 am – noon
Saturday, October 15, 2022

People are finding it more and more difficult to figure out how to plan for retirement – how to save while working and how to convert their savings into sustainable income for the rest of their lives. To be sure, making the right decisions is an exceedingly complicated task, but it is not impossible.  In this presentation, Wade will identify various risks to retirees outliving their savings and then review and evaluate strategies for safely spending from the portfolio.

Wade Pfau, Ph.D, CFA, RICP, is the founder of Retirement Researcher. He is the Professor of Retirement Income at The American College of Financial Services, a  higher education institution for financial planners. He is author of the book “Retirement Planning Guidebook” (Retirement Researcher Media, 2021). He earned a Ph.D. in economics from Princeton University in 2003 with a dissertation about Social Security reform and became a CFA charterholder in 2011
