Financial Advisor Newcastle
Are you looking for a financial advisor to help with your financial planning and retirement planning? If that’s right, you’ve found the right place. We are Oklahoma City Financial Planning Pros and we are top notch financial advisors. First of all, congrats on being wise enough to seek out professional help in this most important part of your life.
As you are aware, we only get one chance at life and one chance to get this right. Life goes by much too fast. If we try and go it alone and come in short of where we need to be, it’s often hard to make up for lost growth. The longer you put this off, the more difficult it will be to fight your way back and achieve your portfolio goals. According to a recent Forbes survey, only 52% of investors look to get the assistance of a financial advisor or financial planner. The survey also revealed that people who do ask for professional help have more profitable financial results than those who do not. It’s really smart to obtain help from a good financial advisor.
Lots of people start with basic questions like: (1) How much money do I need to be able to retire? (2) What’s the real difference between an IRA vs 401k? (3) How much will I need to retire? (4) What about alternative investments? (5) SEP IRA vs ROTH IRA, which is better? The list of questions goes on and on. Finances and investing can be very complex and mind boggling sometimes.
We pride ourselves on providing simple, proven and very effective financial strategies to help you reach your financial and retirement goals. After all, we realize if a solution it too difficult to learn, it will be too challenging to implement and monitor and thus will not be acted upon in the first place. That’s why we always keep things simple.
Financial Planning Newcastle
Our first goal in financial planning and helping you reach your financial goals 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 what-so-ever. As we understand, before you can get to where you need to go, you first need to determine where you are right now.
In our alignment with keeping things easy, 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 log on and use them at any time it is convenient with you and your schedule.
Many of our clients use them frequently running various “what it” concepts to see how minor shifts in their financial planning can impact their net results. The first simple retirement calculator we suggest you use could not be any easier to use. You simply key in your age, the age you desire to retire, the amount you currently have saved for retirement now, how much you contribute on an annual basis, your desired yearly income during your retirement years, the approximate rate of return you are currently earning on your retirement and the rate of return that you believe you will achieve during your retirement years. It’s that easy. Next you simply click the calculate button.
The results of your numbers pull up right away. 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 off you are in funds, years and percentages. If you’re not on goal, it will even show you the four key areas that you can make changes to to insure you obtain your goals. Based on the findings you can go back and plug in some different combinations of numbers and keep going back and forth and discover if you can reasonably make edits to reach your goals.
It’s really very fun to do. For most people it’s a real eye-opener. Knowing where you are now and being honest about your current situation is half the battle.
Note: We work with a lot of high net worth individuals who love using our strategies to grow their portfolios and protect themselves from rising tax rates, creditors, soaring fees and keeping their investments private and off the Government radar. However, most 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 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.

As financial planners, often 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 biggest financial cost of their life time? Lots of 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 to focus on this major cost and reduce your taxes as much as possible. We believe that our main 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 amazing country of ours. It really is that powerful. In a nutshell, this is how our program works.
You contribute post taxed dollars to the program. 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 contribute it. On the surface this may not seem as good as your IRA or 401(k) but please keep reading. We will clearly show you how our program will 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 an illness, 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 access 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 proposing 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 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 Newcastle
The next task we take in successful retirement planning is to get you protected from market losses. 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 wanted to. Far too many investors lost upwards of 50% of their funds in the Dot Com crash of 2000. Then, just 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 money.
Millions of hard working Americans were just getting ready to begin retirement. When the crash triggered and they lost just 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 cent due to market downturns, losses or crashes. I cannot even begin to express to 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 cent in market declines. This one feature of The Barefoot Retirement 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 plan is smart on steroids.
Wealth Management Newcastle
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 plan that we offer is that our program gives you the option, if you choose to use it, to leverage your returns and actually earn 2 different returns, on the same money, at the same time. Yes, we know the first time you 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 mega 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 main stream and not just the wealthy.
Here is a high level look at how the leveraging option could work. Many of our clients choose the blended index option 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 money, 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 funds 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 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 $100,000 earns between zero percent 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 100k and you continue to earn the zero percent to seventeen percent on the entire 100k 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 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 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 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.
