Which of the following AAs (equity/bonds/cash) would you chose for a retired 55 year old couple?

We will draw a 3.6% annual withdrawal rate over 40 years.

Our risk tolerance: we would rather not see the retirement portfolio decline by more than 20% in a market event disaster like 2008.

We would like to leave an inheritance equal to the (real, inflation-adjusted) starting value of this portfolio.
