Edmond Financial Planning & Retirement Planning – Financial Advisor 405-418-6266
Financial Advisor Edmond
Are you in search of a financial advisor to help with your financial planning and retirement planning? If so, you’ve found the most perfect place. We are Oklahoma City Financial Planning Pros and we are top notch financial advisors. First of all, congrats on being smart enough to look for professional help in this critically important part of your life.
As you already know, we only get this one chance at life and one chance to do this right. Life goes by much too fast. If we attempt to go it alone and fall short of where we need to be, it’s often hard to make up for lost funds. The longer you delay, the more difficult it will be to catch up and achieve your financial goals. According to a recent Forbes survey, just 52% of investors look to get the assistance of a financial advisor or financial planner. The survey also found that those who do secure professional help have stronger financial results than individuals who do not. It’s good to seek help from a smart financial advisor.
Lots of 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 do I need to save for retirement? (4) What about alternative investments? (5) 401k vs ROTH IRA, which is better? The list of questions goes on and on. Money and investing can be very complex and mind blowing sometimes.
We focus 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 complicated to understand, it will be too difficult to implement and watch and thus will not be acted upon in the first place. That’s why we always keep things simple.
Financial Planning Edmond
Our first goal in financial planning and helping you succeed financially is to first get a baseline of where you are today financially. Are you on track to achieve your financial and retirement goals? Scores of people have no idea at all. As we know for sure, before you can get to where you wish to go, you first need to learn where you are at this time.
In our alignment with keeping things simple, we have produced a series of our own, custom retirement calculators like; a retirement savings calculator, a retirement planning calculator and various retirement planning tools that are super easy to use, yet very effective. Our simple retirement calculators are 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” scenarios to see how minor tweaks in their financial planning can impact their net results. The first simple retirement calculator we suggest you begin with could not be any easier to use. You simply plug in your age, the age you desire to retire, the amount you currently have saved for retirement now, how much you put in on an annual basis, your desired annual income during your retirement years, the approximate rate of return you are currently earning on your portfolio and the rate of return that you estimate you will achieve during your retirement years. That’s all there is. Now you just click the calculate button.
The results of your inputs pull up instantly. It will clearly show you if you are on track to reach your retirement goals or not, and if not, it will tell you exactly how far away you are in funds, years and percentages. If you are not on goal, the calculator will even show you the 4 critical areas that you can make changes to to make sure you reach your goals. Based on those findings you can go back and key in some different combinations of numbers and keep going back and forth and see if you can reasonably make adjustments to reach your retirement goals.
It’s really very fun to do. For most people it’s a real eye-opener. Discovering where you are right now and being honest about your current finances is half the battle.
Note: We work with quite a few high net worth individuals who love using our plans to grow their portfolios and protect themselves from rising tax rates, creditors, soaring fees and keeping their money private and off the radar. However, many of our clients consider themselves to be mostly average.
If you are not on track to achieve your investment 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 last.
Edmond 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 think will be, future tax rate increases. Did you know that the amount most Americans spend on taxes is the single largest financial expenditure of their life time? Many people have no clue, 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 flagship financial plan that we happen to call The Barefoot Retirement Plan is the single most effective 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 put in after taxed dollars to The Barefoot Retirement Plan. Yes, unlike your IRA and 401(k) (which are called qualified plans) where you contribute pre-taxed dollars, our plan requires you to pay the tax on the funds before you invest it. On the surface this may not look as good as your IRA or 401(k) but please trust us. We will clearly show you how our program 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 sickness, an unexpected expense, an unexpected opportunity or investment, college 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 take out your funds at any time with zero 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 such a big thing. 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 blow you away.) 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 significantly.
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 plans.
Retirement Planning Edmond
The next action we take in our retirement planning is to get you protected from losing money in the market. Second to taxes, market losses are the next big thing that can ruin your retirement dreams and keep you working for much longer than you planned to. Lots of investors lost upwards of 50% of their funds 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 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 triggered and they lost about half of everything they had spent a lifetime building up, it was devastating. That is why the 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 unique 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 makes possible to our clients. Imagine how much nicer you could sleep at night knowing that you were 100% guaranteed not to lose a dollar in stock market declines. This one feature alone can make the difference between you having the retirement of your dreams or not.
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 your previous gains are locked in and protected from losses. This plan is smart on steroids.
Wealth Management Edmond
We also assist our clients with wealth management to insure they reach their investing and financial goals. One of the powerful benefits of our unique and patented flagship program that we offer is that the plan gives you the option, if you wish 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 people hear this, it sounds too good to be true and may even question if it is legal. We guarantee you this is squeaky clean and as legal as legal gets.
Until recently plans like ours have primarily been used by wealthy families, politicians and mega corporations. Believe me, they do 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 main stream and not just the wealthy.
Here is a high level look at how the leveraging option could work. Many clients choose the blended index option that has a 0% floor and a 17% 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 twenty percent, you maintain your zero percent 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 those funds 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 money 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 $100,000 earns between zero percent to seventeen percent each year. Then you decide to borrow 80k from the account and put it into a great 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 0% 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 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 patented 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 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 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 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.
