Financial Planning Longdale
Our first step 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 at all. As we know, before you can get to where you need 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 simple and easy 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.
Lots of our clients use these all the time running various “what it” calculations to see how minor edits 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 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 realizing on your investments 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 instantly. It will tell you if you are on track to achieve 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’re not on goal, the retirement calculator will even show you the 4 key areas that you can change to insure you reach your goals. Based on your findings you can go back and key in some different combinations of numbers and keep going back and forth and find out if you can reasonably make changes to achieve your investment goals.
It’s really very fun to do. For most people it’s a real shocker. Finding out where you are right now and being honest about your current standings is half the battle.
Note: We work with quite a few high net worth individuals who love using our strategies to grow their portfolios and protect themselves from soaring tax rates, creditors, soaring fees and keeping their accounts private and off the radar. However, quite a few of our clients consider themselves to be pretty average.
If you are not on track to obtain 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 live.
Longdale 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 amount most Americans spend on taxes is the single biggest financial cost of their life time? Many people have no idea, yet it is true for most of us. The average American spends more on taxes than they do on any other expense.
That’s why it is most important for us to focus on this major expenditure and reduce your taxes as much as possible. We believe that our top financial program that we happen to call The Barefoot Retirement Plan is the single best 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 our plan works.
You invest after taxed dollars to our plan. Yes, unlike your IRA and 401(k) (which are called qualified plans) where you invest pre-taxed dollars, our plan requires you to pay the tax on the funds before you put them in. On the surface this may not look as good as your IRA or 401(k) but please keep reading. We will clearly show you how our plan will out perform 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, university savings or anything at all, you can simply take your funds out at any time. We will show you how you will be able to get your money at any time you wish with zero 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 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 choice but to rise significantly.
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 dreams.
Retirement Planning Longdale
The next action we take in our retirement planning is to get you protected from losing money in the stock market. Second to taxes, market losses are the next big issue that can destroy your retirement dreams and keep you working for much longer than you needed to. Large numbers of investors lost upwards of 50% of their money 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 everything.
Millions of hard working Americans were just getting ready to enter into retirement. When the crash occurred and they lost almost half of everything they had spent a lifetime working for, it was devastating. That is why our 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 really is possible.
With our patented plan you are totally 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 easier you could sleep at night knowing that you were totally guaranteed not to lose a dime in stock market declines. This one feature by itself can make the difference between you having the retirement of your dreams or being devastated.
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. This plan is smart on steroids.
Wealth Management Longdale
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 program 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 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 primarily been used by wealthy families, politicians and giant corporations. Believe me, they certainly 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 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 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 0% 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 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 get to 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 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 $100,000 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 deal. So you are actually earning two 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 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 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.
