Fairfax Financial Advisor – Retirement & Financial Planning Pros 405-418-6266
Financial Advisor Fairfax
Are you in search of a financial advisor to help with your financial planning and retirement planning? If so, you’ve come to the right place. We are Oklahoma City Financial Planning Pros and we are knowledgeable financial advisors. First of all, congratulations on being brilliant enough to look for professional help in this super important area of your life.
As you already know, we only get this one chance in life and one chance to get this right. Life goes by way too fast. If we decide to go it alone and come in short of where we should be, it’s often challenging to make up for lost funds. The longer you wait, the more difficult it will be to produce better returns and reach your financial goals. According to a recent Forbes survey, just 52% of investors seek out the assistance of a financial advisor or financial planner. The survey also discovered that those who do ask for professional help have stronger financial results than investors who do not. It’s smart 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) What’s the real difference between an IRA vs 401k? (3) How much should I save for retirement? (4) Do I need alternative investments? (5) ROTH IRA vs 401(k), which is better? The list of questions goes on and on. Finances and investing can be very complex and mind boggling sometimes.
We are known for providing simple, proven and very effective financial strategies to help clients reach your financial and retirement goals. After all, we know if a solution it too complicated to grasp, it will be too challenging to use and review and thus will not be acted upon in the first place. That’s why we know to keep things simple.
Financial Planning Fairfax
Our first goal in financial planning and helping you reach your financial goals is to first get a starting point of where you are today financially. Are you on track to exceed your financial and retirement goals? Many people have no idea at all. As we know for sure, before you can get to where you need to go, you first need to discover 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 user friendly to use, yet very effective. Our simple retirement calculators are free to use and they are online, so you can log in and use them at any time it is convenient with you and your schedule.
Lots of our clients use them all the time running various “what it” calculations to see how small shifts in their financial planning can impact their net results. The first simple retirement calculator we suggest you start with could not be any simpler to use. You simply plug in your age, the age you would like 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 accounts and the rate of return that you hope you will achieve during your retirement years. That’s all there is. Now you just click the calculate button.
The results of your numbers pull up immediately. It will tell 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 are not on track, the retirement calculator will even show you the 4 critical areas that you can change 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 and see if you can reasonably make edits to reach your retirement goals.
It’s really quite fun to do. For most people it’s a real eye-opener. Knowing where you are right now and being honest about your current situation 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 accounts private and off the Government grid. However, many of our clients consider themselves to be pretty average.
If you are not on track to reach 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.
Fairfax 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? Most 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 expenditure
That’s why it is most important for us 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 successful way to protect yourself and save on taxes that is legally allowed in this great country of ours. It really is that powerful. In a nutshell, this is how our program works.
You invest post 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 money 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 show you how our plan will blow away these other plans, bar none!
You funds then grow tax differed within your account. If you need the funds for any reason at all like an illness, an unexpected expense, an unexpected opportunity or investment, college savings or anything under the sun, you can simply take your money out at any time. We will show you how you will be able to access your money 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 such a powerful thing. At the time this is being written, Bernie Sanders is running for President. He is advocating a 92% top Federal marginal tax rate. Wow! 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 100% 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 plans.
Retirement Planning Fairfax
The next step we take in our retirement planning is to get you protected from losing money in the stock market. Next to taxes, stock market losses are the next big cause that can crush your retirement dreams and keep you working for much longer than you planned 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 mortgage/housing market crash of 2007/2008 and many investors lost another 40% to 50% of their retirement accounts.
Millions of hard working Americans were just getting ready to retire. When the crash occurred and they lost just about 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 want to get our clients 100% protected from market losses and crashes, and yes, it truly 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 provides to our clients. Imagine how much better you could sleep at night knowing that you were 100% guaranteed not to lose a dime in market declines. This one feature of The Barefoot Retirement Plan 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, 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 plan is smart on steroids.
Wealth Management Fairfax
We also assist our clients with wealth management to insure they reach their investing and financial goals. One of the strong benefits of our unique and patented flagship plan that we offer is that the plan gives you the option, if you wish to use it, to leverage your returns and actually earn 2 different returns, on the 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 this 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 money 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 0% floor and a seventeen percent cap. So if the value of the indexes’ tracked goes up 20% in a given year, you earn 17% on your account, and your gains are always locked in. Or, if the value of the indexes goes down 20%, you maintain your 0% floor and have 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 world 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 can 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 100k earns between 0% to 17% 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 0% to 17% 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 affectively earning two 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 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 could 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 wait. 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.
