The confluence of the large number of retirees hitting Retired Minimum Distribution (RMD) status, and the massive amount of assets that they have accumulated throughout their lifetime, are going to cause a huge outflow of assets from retirement programs.

Over the next 20 years, the cohort of individuals reaching RMD status will swell to 58 million people. During that time, billions of dollars of assets will be forced into retirement programs by RMDs. Upwards to $10 trillion of assets will be subject to RMD status over the next 20 years. Creating and adapting new strategies to retain, redeploy, or otherwise slow the exit of these assets will be paramount to the wellbeing of the industry managing these assets.
