Financial Advisor Francis
Are you in search of a financial advisor to help with your financial planning and retirement planning? If so, you’ve come to the most perfect place. We are Oklahoma City Financial Planning Pros and we are top notch financial advisors. First off, 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 one chance in life and one chance to get this right. Life goes by way too fast. If we attempt to go it alone and fall short of where we ought to be, it’s often challenging to make up for lost growth. The longer you wait, the more difficult it will be to fight your way back and achieve 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 revealed that those who do seek out professional help have more profitable financial returns than people who do not. It’s good to obtain help from a experienced financial advisor.
Most people start with basic questions like: (1) How much money do I need to retire? (2) What’s the real difference between a IRA and 401k? (3) How much will I need to retire? (4) What alternative investments can I invest in? (5) Do I need life insurance? 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 investors reach your financial and retirement goals. After all, we know if a solution it too complex 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 know to keep things simple.
Financial Planning Francis
Our first goal in financial planning and helping you reach your financial goals is to first get a benchmark of where you are today financially. Are you on track to exceed your financial and retirement goals? Scores of people have no idea in the world. As we understand, before you can get to where you wish to go, you first need to discover where you are at this time.
With our plan and with keeping things easy, we have created 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 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” concepts to see how small edits in their financial planning can impact their total results. The first simple retirement calculator we suggest you use could not be any simpler to use. You simply type in your age, the age you desire 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 earning on your accounts and the rate of return that you think you will achieve during your retirement years. It’s that easy. Now you just click the calculate button.
The results of your numbers pull up right away. 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 track, it will even show you the 4 key areas that you can make changes to to make sure you reach your goals. Based on the findings you can go back and enter in some different combinations of amounts and keep going back and forth and discover if you can reasonably make edits to reach your financial goals.
It’s really much fun to do. For most people it’s a real eye-opener. Finding out 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 clients who love using our strategies to grow their accounts and protect themselves from rising tax rates, creditors, soaring fees and keeping their accounts private and off the Government radar. However, most 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.
Francis 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 biggest financial expenditure of their life time? 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 so important to focus on this major expenditure 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 is legally allowed in this fantastic country of ours. It really is that powerful. In a nutshell, this is how it works.
You contribute post 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 program requires you to pay the tax on the money before you contribute it. On the surface this may not appear as good as your IRA or 401(k) but please stay tuned. We will clearly show you how our program 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 or anything under the sun, you can simply take your money out at any time. We will show you exactly 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 suggesting 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 blow you away.) It only took us 13 months to go from 18 trillion to 19 trillion. With the way things are going these days, most experts believe that our future tax rates will have no option but to rise sharply.
By setting up a Barefoot Retirement Plan you can 100% protect yourself from needing to pay any taxes on the funds you pull out. This one benefit alone can make or break most people’s retirement plan.
Retirement Planning Francis
The next task we take in successful retirement planning is to get you protected from losing money in the market. Next to taxes, market losses are the next big event that can crush your retirement dreams and keep you working for much longer than you needed to. Far too many investors lost upwards of 50% of their funds in the Dot Com crash of 2000. Then, just as soon as many 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 portfolios.
Millions of hard working Americans were just getting ready to retire. When the crash occurred 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 want to get our clients 100% protected from market losses and crashes, and yes, it truly is possible.
With our one-of-a-kind plan you are totally guaranteed not to lose a single penny due to market downturns, losses or crashes. I cannot even begin to tell 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 totally guaranteed not to lose a cent in stock 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 market goes up, we 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 Francis
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 our plan gives you the option, if you choose to use it, to leverage your returns and actually earn 2 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 assure you this is squeaky clean and as legal as legal gets.
Until recently plans like ours have mainly been used by wealthy families, politicians and huge corporations. Believe me, they do know the best ways to protect their wealth from taxes and losses. That’s why they use these plans so widely. Now these plans are more available to the average investor and not just the rich.
Here is a high level look at how the leveraging option could work. Many of our clients choose our blended index plan that has a zero percent floor and a seventeen percent cap. So if the value of the indexes’ tracked goes up twenty percent 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 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 world 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 get to choose to put your money 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 profitable real estate deal you found. Since you borrowed the funds from your account and did not take them out, your account value remains $100,000 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 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 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 may 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.
