“The number four is considered to be quite unlucky in Chinese culture,” says Dr. Milevsky, “because it has the same pronunciation (‘si’) as the word death. In this brief and informal presentation sponsored by FPAC for all interested planners, I’ll explain why I personally dislike the number four – and the so-called ‘4% rule’ – in the context of retirement income planning and the optimal drawdown of retirement assets.”
Join the Financial Planning Association of Canada – a membership-driven, not-for-profit association of Canadian financial planners – for our next public event, “Eight Reasons I Hate the Number Four" with world-renowned finance professor and retirement expert Dr. Moshe Milevsky.

“The number four is considered to be quite unlucky in Chinese culture,” says Dr. Milevsky, “because it has the same pronunciation (‘si’) as the word death. In this brief and informal presentation sponsored by FPAC for all interested planners, I’ll explain why I personally dislike the number four – and the so-called ‘4% rule’ – in the context of retirement income planning and the optimal drawdown of retirement assets.”
