Baby boomers and equity returnsVideo
Vanguard - 4/16/2014

There's a well-publicized belief that baby boomers' investments helped lift stock market returns in the 1990s. As members of this generation begin to retire, they will enter the asset-rotation phase of shifting equities toward income to help meet their expenses.
