Look at all the pieces," says Jason Flurry, president of Legacy Partners Financial Group.
For the after-tax account, Flurry likes 30 percent equity spread among large-, medium- and small-cap stocks, plus U.S. and international stocks.
"We lean more toward value companies with good dividends," he says.
The remaining 70 percent should contain stable, high-quality bonds and other fixed-income assets, especially those that can offer guarantees on your principal and income.
He would stay away from long-term bonds and instead tilt toward short-term, with durations of one to three years and ultrashort-term, with durations of less than a year.
He also suggests avoiding high-yield bonds, which have a similar risk level to equities.
Another possibility for the fixed-income part of the portfolio is a bond alternative strategy, like a merger fund, which owns stocks of companies undergoing mergers and acquisitions.
These funds generally provide additional diversification and low volatility compared with the market.
"They act like a bond but with a higher rate of return," Flurry says.
Lessen exposure to stocks
The pretax account that you won't dip into for a number of years can contain a 50-50 mix of equity and fixed-income-type investments.
Although the fixed-income assets won't provide a lot of growth, they can help stabilize the portfolio from market fluctuations and offer safety to your nest egg.
"This part of your portfolio is more for income tomorrow," Flurry says.
Managing investments in early retirement is not difficult when you realize that you're now shifting from being performance-driven to safety-conscious, says Flurry.
The goal now is to maintain and realize reasonable growth, rather than reach for new investment highs.
"Don't get caught up in returns," he says.
This is important because: â€œMost people run through an inheritance in two years or less,â€� says Jason Flurry, the president of Legacy Partners Financial Group.
In his experience, the first mistake people make is they â€œblow the money on stuff for themselvesâ€�.
Flurry says, â€œThe temptation is to feel like you have to do something, but you really donâ€™t.
