My retirement portfolio is currently 95% stock (widely diversified between domestic and international, and large to small cap equities.) I have little appetite for holding any bonds in this environment of rising interest rates.

My current withdrawal for annual living expenses in retirement is about 1.5% of the portfolio value.



Either your portfolio is worth millions (at least 4 or 5 million) or you are very young and can afford to lose when the market crashes.

I'm not very young and don't have 4 or 5 million. I can't afford to lose in a big market crash. Do you think it is unwise for me to hold bonds in funds such as Wellington and Wellesley Income?

Just wondering....
