Financial Advisor Okmulgee
Are you seeking a financial advisor to assist with your financial planning and retirement planning? If so, you’ve arrived at the right place. We are Oklahoma City Financial Planning Pros and we are excellent financial advisors. First off, congrats on being wise enough to search for professional help in this most important part of your life.
As you are aware, we only get one chance in life and one chance to do this right. Life goes by far too fast. If we attempt to go it alone and come in short of where we ought to be, it’s often challenging to make up for lost growth. The longer you hold off on this, the harder it will be to make up lost ground and obtain your portfolio goals. According to a recent Forbes survey, only 52% of individuals seek out the help of a financial advisor or financial planner. The survey also found that those who do ask for professional help have more profitable financial returns than pre-retirees who do not. It’s really smart to ask for help from a good financial advisor.
Lots of people start with basic questions like: (1) How much money do I need to retire? (2) How much to save for retirement? (3) How much will I need to retire? (4) What alternative investments can I invest in? (5) SEP IRA vs ROTH IRA, which is better? The list of questions goes on and on. Money and investing can be very complex and mind boggling sometimes.
We pride ourselves on 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 difficult to understand, it will be too complicated to implement and monitor and thus will not be acted upon in the first place. That’s why we keep things simple.
Financial Planning Okmulgee
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 exceed your financial and retirement goals? Scores of people have no idea at all. As we understand, before you can get to where you want to go, you first need to find out where you are at this time.
With our plan and with keeping things easy, we have developed 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 totally 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 these frequently running various “what it” scenarios to see how minor changes in their financial planning can impact their overall results. The first simple retirement calculator we suggest you start with could not be any easier 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 invest 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. It’s that simple. Then 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 show 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 main areas that you can change to insure you obtain your goals. Based on those findings you can go back and enter in some different combinations of numbers and keep going back and forth and see if you can reasonably make adjustments to achieve your financial 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 standings is half the battle.
Note: We work with quite a few high net worth investors who love using our strategies to grow their accounts and protect themselves from rising tax rates, creditors, soaring fees and keeping their investments private and off the Government radar. 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 last.
Okmulgee 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 think will be, future tax rate increases. Did you know that the dollars most Americans spend on taxes is the single largest financial expenditure of their life time? Lots of 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 so important for us to focus on this major expense and reduce your taxes as much as you can. We believe that our primary 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 Barefoot Retirement Plan. Yes, unlike an IRA and 401(k) (which are called qualified plans) where you put in pre-taxed dollars, our plan requires you to pay the tax on the money before you invest it. On the surface this may not seem as good as your IRA or 401(k) but please keep reading. 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 savings 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 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 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. 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 our 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 plan.
Retirement Planning Okmulgee
The next action we take in our 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 crush your retirement dreams and keep you working for much longer than you hoped to. Large numbers of 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 everything.
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 our 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 actually is possible.
With our powerful 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 provides to our clients. Imagine how much better you could sleep at night knowing that you were 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 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 unique plan is smart on steroids.
Wealth Management Okmulgee
We also assist our clients with wealth management to insure they reach their investing and financial goals. One of the amazing benefits of our unique and patented flagship program 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 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 promise 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 mega 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 rich.
Here is a high level look at how the leveraging option could work. Many clients choose the blended index account that has a zero percent floor and a 17% 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 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 planet that you wish. You don’t have to get 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 seventeen percent each year. Then you decide to borrow $80,000 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 0% 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 deal. 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 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 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 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.
