I've seen lots of studies about safe withdrawal rates, including the one by intercst at Retire Early Home Page. Anyway, the graphs and charts all seem to focus on the maximum safe withdrawal rate under a particular equity/fixed ratio, which usually includes a relatively high equity allocation. My question deals with a portfolio that is 30% equities and 70% fixed (short/intermeidate investment grade): How low of a SWR can support a 100% survival rate based on historical market data? Put another way, if I had a portfolio that was 70% fixed and 30% equities, would a withdrawal rate of 3%, 2.5%, or 2% have a 100% survival rate based on historical data? Thanks.
