KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa., April 8, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Phil Cannella stood before a room filled with investors in or near retirement age, all sharing one common concern: will I outlive my retirement savings due to an uncertain economy?


Phil Cannella has interviewed hundreds of Americans, asking for their retirement outlook relative to the volatility of the financial markets since the turn of the century. He has discovered  a feeling of distrust that is still fresh in the hearts of Baby Boomers. This was abundantly evident by the overwhelming turnout of consumers that came to Phil Cannella's retirement planning seminar to voice their concerns about the future of their assets. It is estimated that 10,000 of these Baby Boomers will reach retirement every day for the next 19 years, and with the growing distrust of the stock market, there becomes an overwhelming uncertainty that may shift wealth placement on a national scale. According to the Investment Company Institute, retirement assets in America totaled $23 trillion in the fourth quarter of 2013, accounting for 34 percent of all household financial assets. Due to the popularity of mutual funds and other stock market investments, much of this enormous wealth has been circulating throughout Wall Street. All of that may be taking a new direction in the wake of two recent market crashes that shattered retirement accounts across the country, yet left Wall Street intact. The general consensus among Baby Boomers reveals a concern for their financial security heading into retirement, and a clear distrust of the financial services industry.
