Adjustments to Equity/FI Ratio with Age

The FireCalc survival rates are calculated based on the Equity/FI ratio you enter with an assumption that ratio does not change over time. Is there a way to calculate the affect of making adjustments to the ratio over time. For example you start by entering an initial 50/50 ratio and then you want to reduce the equity allocation by 1% each year. Is there a way to determine the survivalbility of the portfolio?

Nope -- sorry. Maybe in the next revision.

Often uninformed, seldom undecided.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. Mark Twain
