Financial Advisor Drummond
Are you looking for a financial advisor to assist with your financial planning and retirement planning? If that’s right, you’ve come to the perfect place. We are Oklahoma City Financial Planning Pros and we are excellent financial advisors. First off, congratulations on being brilliant enough to seek out professional help in this critically important area of your life.
As you know, we only get one chance in life and one chance to get this right. Life goes by much too fast. If we try and go it alone and fall short of where we ought to be, it’s often challenging to make up for lost results. The longer you put this off, the more difficult it will be to produce better returns and obtain your retirement goals. According to a recent Forbes survey, only 52% of individuals seek out the assistance of a financial advisor or financial planner. The survey also revealed that investors who do use professional help have stronger financial results than individuals who do not. It’s smart to obtain help from a smart financial advisor.
Lots of people start with basic questions like: (1) How much money do I need to retire? (2) What’s the real difference between an Individual Retirement Account and an 401k? (3) How much will I need to retire? (4) What about 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 boggling sometimes.
We are known for providing simple, proven and very effective financial strategies to help people reach your financial and retirement goals. After all, we have learned if a solution it too complex to grasp, it will be too difficult to put in place and watch and thus will not be acted upon in the first place. That’s why we know to keep things simple.
Financial Planning Drummond
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 achieve your financial and retirement goals? Most people have no idea in the world. As we know, before you can get to where you want to go, you first need to determine where you are at this time.
With our plan and with keeping things easy, 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 user friendly to use, yet very effective. Our simple retirement calculators are totally free to use and they are online, so you can go online and use them at any time it is convenient with you and your schedule.
Many of our clients use these very often running various “what it” ideas to see how little edits 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 enter in your age, the age you want to retire, the amount you currently have saved for retirement now, how much you add to on an annual basis, your desired yearly income during your retirement years, the approximate rate of return you are currently realizing on your retirement and the rate of return that you think you will achieve during your retirement years. That’s it. Then you simply click the calculate button.
The results of your inputs pull up immediately. It will clearly show you if you are on track to achieve your retirement goals or not, and if not, it will show you exactly how far off you are in funds, years and percentages. If you are not on track, the retirement calculator will even show you the four critical areas that you can make changes to to be sure you obtain your goals. Based on those findings you can go back and enter in some different combinations of amounts and keep going back and forth and find out if you can reasonably make changes to achieve your retirement goals.
It’s really much fun to do. For most people it’s a real shocker. Finding out where you are right 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 funds private and off the Government radar. However, lots 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 objective 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 do.
Drummond Financial Planners
As financial planners, usually our next step is to help protect you from spending more than you need to 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 biggest financial expenditure of their life? Many people have no clue, yet it is true for most of us. The average American spends more on taxes than they do on their mortgage payments, car payments and college for their kids, etc.
That’s why it is most important to focus on this major cost and reduce your taxes as much as you can. We believe that our flagship financial program that we happen to call The Barefoot Retirement Plan is the single most powerful 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 it works.
You contribute after taxed dollars to the plan. Yes, unlike your IRA and 401(k) (which are called qualified plans) where you put in pre-taxed dollars, our program requires you to pay the tax on the funds before you contribute it. On the surface this may not look as good as your IRA or 401(k) but please stay tuned. We will clearly demonstrate how our plan will beat the pants off of these other plans, without a doubt!
You funds then grow tax differed within your account. If you need your funds for any reason at all like an illness, an unexpected expense, an unexpected opportunity or investment, university savings or anything under the sun, you can simply take your funds out at any time. We will show you exactly how you will be able to get your funds at any time with no penalties, no fees and no taxes.
Then, when you retire, ALL 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 now, most experts believe that the future tax rates will have no option but to rise significantly.
By setting up a Barefoot Retirement Plan you can completely protect yourself from needing to pay any taxes on the money you pull out. This one benefit alone can make or break most people’s retirement hopes and dreams.
Retirement Planning Drummond
The next action we take in our retirement planning is to get you protected from market losses. Next to taxes, stock market losses are the next big event that can end your retirement dreams and keep you working for much longer than you wanted to. Large numbers of investors lost upwards of 50% of their accounts in the Dot Com crash of 2000. Then, just as most of them were just getting back to where they were before the last crash, we had the next 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 retire. When the crash happened and they lost almost half of everything they had spent a lifetime creating, it was devastating. That is why the team at Oklahoma City Financial Planning Pros works so hard every day. We work to get our clients 100% protected from market losses and crashes, and yes, it truly is possible.
With our powerful plan you are completely guaranteed not to lose a single penny due to market downturns, losses or crashes. I cannot even begin to express to you how much peace of mind this brings to our clients. Imagine how much deeper you could sleep at night knowing that you were totally guaranteed not to lose a penny in market declines. This one feature of our 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, we 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 Drummond
We also assist our clients with wealth management to insure they reach their investment and financial goals. One of the amazing benefits of our unique and patented flagship plan that we offer is that it gives you the option, if you wish to use it, to leverage your returns and actually earn 2 different returns, on the exact same funds, 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 guarantee you it is squeaky clean and as legal as legal gets.
Until recently plans like ours have mostly been used by wealthy families, politicians and mega corporations. Believe me, they know the best ways to protect their funds from taxes and losses. That’s why they use these plans so widely. Now these plans are more available to the average person and not just the wealthy.
Here is a high level look at how the leveraging option could work. Many clients choose our blended index account that has a zero percent floor and a seventeen percent cap. So if the value of the indexes’ tracked goes up 20% in a given year, you earn seventeen percent on your funds, and your gains are always locked in. Or, if the value of the indexes goes down 20%, you maintain your 0% floor and experience 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 under the sun that you wish. You don’t have to seek permission from anyone to do this. You are not limited to a list of investment options. You can choose to put your funds into anything you want or need to, no problem.
Let’s use an example. Say you have $100,000 in your Barefoot Retirement account. That 100k earns between 0% to seventeen percent each year. Then you decide to borrow 80k 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 17% on the entire 100k account value.
Additionally you earn whatever return you get on your $80,000 that you put into your real estate investment. So you are actually earning 2 different returns on the same funds 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 unique plan but we are limited in space here. The best way to get more information on this program is to give us a call. We’re happy to talk 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 might 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 hesitate. 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.
