Alex Financial Advisor – Financial Planning & Retirement Planning Pros 405-418-6266
Financial Advisor Alex
Are you in search of a financial advisor to help with your financial planning and retirement planning? If so, you’ve arrived at the perfect place. We are Oklahoma City Financial Planning Pros and we are experienced financial advisors. First off, congratulations on being wise enough to seek professional help in this very important area of your life.
As you already know, we only get this one chance in life and one chance to make this right. Life goes by far too fast. If we attempt to go it alone and come in short of where we should be, it’s often challenging to make up for lost results. The longer you hold off on this, the harder it will be to catch up and achieve your retirement goals. According to a recent Forbes survey, just 52% of people ask for the assistance of a financial advisor or financial planner. Forbes also revealed that individuals who do seek out professional help have stronger financial results than pre-retirees who do not. It’s good to ask for help from a good financial advisor.
Most people start with basic questions like: (1) How much savings do I need to retire? (2) How much money do you need to retire? (3) How much will I need to retire? (4) Do I need alternative investments? (5) Is a 401k better than an IRA? The list of questions goes on and on. Finance and investing can be very complex and mind blowing sometimes.
We pride ourselves on providing simple, proven and very effective financial strategies to help investors reach your financial and retirement goals. After all, we have learned if a solution it too difficult to grasp, it will be too challenging to use and monitor and thus will not be acted upon in the first place. That’s why we like to keep things simple.
Financial Planning Alex
Our first goal in financial planning and helping you succeed financially is to first get a benchmark of where you are today financially. Are you on track to obtain your financial and retirement goals? Most people have no idea what-so-ever. As we know for sure, before you can get to where you need to go, you first need to find out where you are at this time.
With our plan and with keeping things simple, we have developed a series of our own, custom retirement calculators like; a retirement savings calculator, a retirement planning calculator and various retirement planning tools that are really easy to use, yet very effective. Our simple retirement calculators are totally free to use and they are online, so you can log on and use them at any time it is convenient with you and your schedule.
Many of our clients use these all the time running various “what it” ideas to see how minor changes in their financial planning can impact their net results. The first simple retirement calculator we suggest you begin with could not be any simpler to use. You simply type in your age, the age you want to retire, the amount you currently have saved for retirement now, how much you invest on an annual basis, your desired yearly income during your retirement years, the approximate rate of return you are currently getting on your portfolio and the rate of return that you hope you will achieve during your retirement years. It’s that easy. You then just click the calculate button.
The results of your inputs pull up instantly. It will clearly show you if you are on track to obtain your retirement goals or not, and if not, it will show you exactly how far away you are in funds, years and percentages. If you’re not on track, the retirement calculator will even show you the four key areas that you can make changes to to make sure you reach your goals. Based on the findings you can go back and type in some different combinations of numbers and keep going back and forth to see if you can reasonably make edits to obtain your goals.
It’s really very fun to do. For most people it’s a real eye-opener. Discovering where you are now and being honest about your current finances is half the battle.
Note: We work with a lot of high net worth clients who love using our plans to grow their net worth and protect themselves from soaring tax rates, creditors, soaring fees and keeping their accounts private and off the Government grid. However, most of our clients consider themselves to be mostly average.
If you are not on track to achieve your goals, please don’t be discouraged. Today 61% of Americans fear running out of money during retirement more than they fear death itself! Our goal and our job is to work with you and help you get your finances on track and help you create a lifetime, tax-free retirement income that will last as long as you live.
Alex Financial Planners
As financial planners, usually our next step is to help protect you from spending more than you should on taxes and also protect you from what we believe will be, future tax rate increases. Did you know that the dollars most Americans spend on taxes is the single largest financial cost of their life time? Most people have no idea, yet it is true for most of us. The average American spends more on taxes than they do on on any other single expenditure.
That’s why it is most important to focus on this major expenditure and reduce your taxes as much as you can. We believe that our main financial program that we happen to call The Barefoot Retirement Plan is the single most successful way to protect yourself and save on taxes that’s legally allowed in this great country of ours. It truly is that powerful. In a nutshell, this is how our plan works.
You contribute post taxed dollars to The Barefoot Retirement Plan. Yes, unlike an IRA and 401(k) (which are called qualified plans) where you contribute pre-taxed dollars, our program requires you to pay the tax on the money before you put them in. On the surface this may not seem as good as your IRA or 401(k) but please keep an open mind. We will clearly show you how our plan will significantly out perform these other plans, bar none!
You funds then grow tax differed within your account. If you need your funds for any reason at all like sickness, an unexpected expense, an unexpected opportunity or investment, college savings or anything at all, you can simply take your money out at any time. We will show you how you will be able to take out your money at any time with no penalties, no fees and no taxes.
Then, when you retire, 100% of your retirement funds that you pull out to live on are completely and totally free of taxes. This is so powerful. At the time this is being written, Bernie Sanders is running for President. He is wanting a 92% top Federal marginal tax rate. Yikes! Plus last week the US debt just surpassed the 19 Trillion mark. (If you look at our National Debt Clock, it will shock you.) It only took us 13 months to go from 18 trillion to 19 trillion. With the way things are going at this time, most experts believe that the future tax rates will have no choice but to rise sharply.
By setting up a Barefoot Retirement Plan you can totally protect yourself from having to pay any taxes on the money you pull out. This one benefit alone can make or break most people’s retirement plan.
Retirement Planning Alex
The next action we take in successful retirement planning is to get you protected from losing money in the market. Second to taxes, stock market losses are the next big event that can destroy your retirement dreams and keep you working for much longer than you wanted to. Far too many investors lost upwards of 50% of their accounts in the Dot Com crash of 2000. Then, just as soon as most of them were just getting back to where they were before the last crash, we had the mortgage/housing market crash of 2007/2008 and many investors lost another 40% to 50% of their money.
Millions of hard working Americans were just getting ready to begin retirement. When the crash occurred and they lost just about half of everything they had spent a lifetime creating, it was devastating. That is why our team at Oklahoma City Financial Planning Pros works so hard every day. We strive to get our clients 100% protected from market losses and crashes, and yes, it really is possible.
With our powerful plan you are completely guaranteed not to lose a single dime due to market downturns, losses or crashes. I cannot even begin to tell you how much peace of mind this gives to our clients. Imagine how much nicer you could sleep at night knowing that you were completely guaranteed not to lose a penny in market declines. This one feature of The Barefoot Retirement Plan can make the difference between you having the retirement of your dreams or being wiped out.
When you get our plan set up, when the stock market goes up, you lock in your gains each year. When the market goes down, you lose nothing and all of your previous gains are locked in and protected from losses. Our unique plan is smart on steroids.
Wealth Management Alex
We also assist our clients with wealth management to insure they reach their investing and financial goals. One of the amazing benefits of our unique and patented flagship plan that we offer is that our plan gives you the option, if you choose to use it, to leverage your returns and actually earn two different returns, on the exact same money, at the same time. Yes, we know the first time most people hear this, it sounds too good to be true and may even question if it is legal. We promise you it is squeaky clean and as legal as legal gets.
Until recently plans like ours have mainly been used by wealthy families, politicians and mega corporations. Believe me, they do know the best ways to protect their money from taxes and losses. That’s why they use these plans so widely. Now these plans are more available to the main stream and not just the wealthy.
Here is a high level look at how the leveraging option could work. Many clients choose our blended index option that has a 0% floor and a 17% cap. So if the value of the indexes’ tracked goes up twenty percent in a given year, you earn 17% on your money, and your gains are always locked in. Or, if the value of the indexes goes down 20%, you maintain your zero percent floor and suffer no losses at all.
You then have the option to borrow the majority of the money from your account. (You have to do this correctly and we’ll show you how), and you can then invest that money into ANYTHING in the planet that you wish. You don’t have to ask permission from anyone to do this. You are not limited to a list of investment options. You get to choose to put your funds into anything you want or need to, no problem.
Let’s use an example. Say you have 100k in your Barefoot Retirement account. That $100,000 earns between 0% to 17% each year. Then you decide to borrow $80,000 from the account and put it into a sweet real estate deal you found. Since you borrowed the funds from your account and did not take them out, your account value remains 100k and you continue to earn the zero percent to seventeen percent on the entire $100,000 account value.
Additionally you earn whatever return you get on your 80k that you put into your real estate deal. So you are actually earning 2 different returns on the same money at the same time. This is a powerful strategy and can have a very positive impact on your total returns.
We could go on and on about all of the many benefits of this powerful plan but we are limited in space here. The best way to get more information on this plan is to give us a call. We’re happy to speak with you and answer any of your questions. More importantly we are happy to schedule a free 15 minute phone consultation with you to best determine if this could be a good fit for you and if so, we can run some numbers and show you exactly what a Barefoot Retirement Plan would look like for you.
I encourage you to take action now. You know how things pop up and our attention can be lost in a moment. This is far too important to leave to chance. Don’t put this off. You have nothing to lose. Give us a call right now and at least take the first step towards what could be the best move of your life. We’re looking forward to talking with you.
