Tactical and Strategic Roth Conversions in 2020
Roth conversions have always had the potential to unlock hidden value. Today’s Market Conditions and the no RMD rule in 2020 are creating some unique opportunities. One emerging strategy is to trade your RMD amount for a Roth conversion. This appears to be a promising opportunity for many clients.
Before Secure, it was perhaps simple nominal conversions to take advantage of a low-income year. However, the SECURE Act expands the impact of Roth conversions beyond a quantitative arbitrage game to a strategic estate planning set of issues that should be of interest to all lawyers, trust officers, insurance and financial advisors and CPAs. The paradigm shift from life expectancy distributions to a 10-year distribution is at its core a mathematical problem. Therefore, quantitative driven strategies can mitigate the impact of lost deferral and Roth conversions will be the primary tool for most families.
