Oakland Financial Advisor – Retirement & Financial Planning Pros 405-418-6266
Financial Advisor Oakland
Are you searching for a financial advisor to assist with your financial planning and retirement planning? If that’s right, you’ve arrived at the most perfect place. We are Oklahoma City Financial Planning Pros and we are excellent financial advisors. First off, congratulations on being smart enough to look for professional help in this very important area of your life.
As you know, we only get one chance in life and one chance to make this right. Life goes by way too fast. If we attempt to go it alone and fall short of where we should be, it’s often hard to make up for lost results. The longer you hold off on this, the harder it will be to make up lost ground and achieve your portfolio goals. According to a recent Forbes survey, just 52% of individuals ask for the assistance of a financial advisor or financial planner. The survey also found that pre-retirees who do secure professional help have more profitable financial gains than those who do not. It’s good to ask for help from a smart financial advisor.
Lots of people start with basic questions like: (1) How much do I need to retire? (2) How much money do you need to retire? (3) How much will I need to retire? (4) What alternative investments can I invest in? (5) Is a 401k better than an IRA? The list of questions goes on and on. Finances and investing can be very complex and mind boggling sometimes.
We focus on providing simple, proven and very effective financial strategies to help clients reach your financial and retirement goals. After all, we realize if a solution it too complex to understand, it will be too challenging to use and watch and thus will not be acted upon in the first place. That’s why we always keep things simple.
Financial Planning Oakland
Our first goal 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 exceed your financial and retirement goals? Most 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 find out where you are right now.
With our plan and 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 completely free to use and they are online, so you can access and use them at any time it is convenient with you and your schedule.
Lots of our clients use them frequently running various “what it” scenarios to see how minor changes 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 enter in your age, the age you wish to retire, the amount you currently have saved for retirement now, how much you add to on an annual basis, your desired annual income during your retirement years, the approximate rate of return you are currently earning on your investments and the rate of return that you estimate you will achieve during your retirement years. It’s that simple. Next you simply click the calculate button.
The results of your numbers pull up immediately. It will show you if you are on track to obtain 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 track, the calculator will even show you the 4 key areas that you can make changes to to make sure you obtain your goals. Based on your findings you can go back and key in some different combinations of amounts and keep going back and forth and find out if you can reasonably make adjustments to achieve 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 investors who love using our plans to grow their portfolios and protect themselves from soaring tax rates, creditors, soaring fees and keeping their investments private and off the grid. However, many of our clients consider themselves to be mostly 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 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.
Oakland 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 believe will be, future tax rate increases. Did you know that the amount most Americans spend on taxes is the single largest financial expense 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 best 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 truly is that powerful. In a nutshell, this is how it works.
You invest 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 plan requires you to pay the tax on the funds before you contribute it. On the surface this may not look as good as your IRA or 401(k) but please keep an open mind. We will clearly demonstrate how our plan will blow away these other plans, without a doubt!
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 or anything at all, 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 you wish 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 powerful thing. At the time this is being written, Bernie Sanders is running for President. He is proposing 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 the future tax rates will have no choice but to rise sharply.
By setting up a Barefoot Retirement Plan you can completely protect yourself from having 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 Oakland
The next task we take in successful retirement planning is to get you protected from losing money in the stock market. Next to taxes, market losses are the next big cause that can ruin your retirement dreams and keep you working for much longer than you hoped to. Far too many investors lost upwards of 50% of their accounts 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 portfolios.
Millions of hard working Americans were just getting ready to begin retirement. When the crash occurred and they lost just about half of everything they had spent a lifetime working for, it was devastating. That is why the team at Oklahoma City Financial Planning Pros works so hard every day. We work to get our clients 100% protected from market losses and crashes, and yes, it truly is possible.
With our powerful plan you are totally guaranteed not to lose a single dollar due to market downturns, losses or crashes. I cannot even begin to tell 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 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 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 your previous gains are locked in and protected from losses. Our plan is smart on steroids.
Wealth Management Oakland
We also assist our clients with wealth management to insure they reach their investment and financial goals. One of the powerful benefits of our unique and patented flagship plan that we offer is that it gives you the option, if you wish to use it, to leverage your returns and actually earn two different returns, on the exact same funds, 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 assure you it 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 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 investor 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 seventeen percent cap. So if the value of the indexes’ tracked goes up twenty percent 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 funds 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 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 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 zero percent to 17% on the entire $100,000 account value.
Additionally you earn whatever return you get on your $80,000 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 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 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.
