A T. Rowe Price study reveals a group of individuals who look at retirement more proactively than others.

Key Points

  • Investors with a proactive mind-set feel more prepared for retirement.
  • The majority of individuals in this category believe their ideal retirement is attainable.
  • These investors also have a clear idea of how they envision their lives in retirement.

*This T. Rowe Price study was conducted in December 2016 with a sample size of 2,001 individuals over the age of 35 with investable assets of at least $50,000. Respondents were either retired or had taken some steps (financially or logistically) to prepare for retirement.
