The 70/30 portfolio had an average annual return of 9.96% and a standard deviation of 14.05%. This means that the annual return, on average, fluctuated between -4.08% and 24.01%. Compare that with the 30/70 portfolio’s average return of 7.31% and standard deviation of 7.08%.
The 4 Percent Rule determines how much they could withdraw from this amount once they retire. This means you would need 25 times your annual expenses to withdraw 4 percent, and have it be equal to your Annual Expenses in Retirement.

Most experts say your retirement income should be about 80% of your final pre-retirement salary. 3? That means if you make $100,000 annually at retirement, you need at least $80,000 per year to have a comfortable lifestyle after leaving the workforce.
If you retire with $500k in assets, the 4% rule says that you should be able to withdraw $20,000 per year for a 30-year (or longer) retirement. So, if you retire at 60, the money should ideally last through age 90. If 4% sounds too low, consider that you’ll take an income that increases with inflation.
As you can see, inflation-adjusted average returns for the S&P 500 have been between 5% and 8% over a few selected 30-year periods. The bottom line is that using a rate of return of 6% or 7% is a good bet for your retirement planning.
