Hartford, Conn. (July 3, 2003) -- Shaken by the effects of the bear market, wealthy investors are ready to recoup their losses, but how they’ll go about it varies greatly, according to a survey by The Phoenix Companies Inc. and Harris Interactive.

Nearly two-thirds said their most important overall financial goal is to assure a comfortable standard of living during retirement. Results of the Phoenix/Harris Interactive Wealth Survey were based on 1,496 online interviews with adults with a net worth of $1 million or more.
