The majority of affluent investors who receive advice primarily invest to preserve capital (57 percent) rather than grow their assets (43 percent) and the vast majority (81 percent) say creating retirement income to last the rest of their lives is their primary investment goal.

Despite the overwhelming feelings of confidence, affluent investors are not without some concerns. Among the issues they are discussing with their advisors are market volatility, the interest rate environment, inflation and tax increases.
