Financial Advisor Orlando
Are you seeking a financial advisor to help with your financial planning and retirement planning? If so, you’ve come to the best place. We are Oklahoma City Financial Planning Pros and we are top notch financial advisors. First of all, congrats on being brilliant enough to seek out professional help in this super important part of your life.
As you know, we only get one chance at life and one chance to do this right. Life goes by much too fast. If we try and go it alone and fall short of where we should be, it’s often difficult to make up for lost ground. The longer you put this off, the more challenging it will be to produce better returns and reach your portfolio goals. According to a recent Forbes survey, only 52% of pre-retirees seek out the help of a financial advisor or financial planner. They also discovered that individuals who do seek professional help have stronger financial returns than investors who do not. It’s smart to seek help from a smart financial advisor.
Many people start with basic questions like: (1) How much savings do I need to retire? (2) What’s the real difference between an Individual Retirement Account and an 401k? (3) How much should I save for retirement? (4) What about alternative investments? (5) 401k 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 people reach your financial and retirement goals. After all, we realize if a solution it too complex to grasp, it will be too difficult to implement and review and thus will not be acted upon in the first place. That’s why we keep things simple.
Financial Planning Orlando
Our first step 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 achieve your financial and retirement goals? Most people have no idea at all. As we know, before you can get to where you want to go, you first need to determine where you are at this time.
With our plan and 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 free to use and they are online, so you can log in and use them at any time it is convenient with you and your schedule.
Lots of our clients use these very often running various “what it” ideas to see how little shifts in their financial planning can impact their end results. The first simple retirement calculator we suggest you begin with could not be any easier to use. You simply enter in your age, the age you want 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 portfolio and the rate of return that you think you will achieve during your retirement years. That’s it. Next you simply click the calculate button.
The results of your inputs pull up immediately. It will clearly show 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 are not on track, the retirement calculator will even show you the 4 key areas that you can change to be sure you reach your goals. Based on those 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 obtain your goals.
It’s really much 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 soaring tax rates, creditors, soaring fees and keeping their accounts private and off the Government grid. However, lots of our clients consider themselves to be pretty average.
If you are not on track to reach your financial 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.
Orlando 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 dollars most Americans spend on taxes is the single biggest financial expenditure 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 on any other single expenditure.
That’s why it is most important for us to focus on this major expense 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 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 plan works.
You put in after taxed dollars to our 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 funds before you contribute it. On the surface this may not look as good as your IRA or 401(k) but please keep reading. We will clearly demonstrate how our plan will out perform these other plans, without a doubt!
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 savings or anything under the sun, you can simply take your funds out at any time. We will show you how you will be able to access your funds at any time 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 shock you.) 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 having to pay any taxes on the money you pull out. This one benefit alone can make or break most people’s retirement plan.
Retirement Planning Orlando
The next step we take in successful retirement planning is to get you protected from losing money in the market. Next to taxes, stock market losses are the next big thing that can destroy your retirement dreams and keep you working for much longer than you needed to. Many investors lost upwards of 50% of their accounts 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 enter into retirement. When the crash occurred and they lost about 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 work to get our clients 100% protected from market losses and crashes, and yes, it actually is possible.
With our powerful plan you are completely guaranteed not to lose a single cent 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 nicer you could sleep at night knowing that you were completely guaranteed not to lose a cent in stock market declines. This one feature alone 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. This plan is smart on steroids.
Wealth Management Orlando
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 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 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 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 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 0% floor and a 17% cap. So if the value of the indexes’ tracked goes up 20% 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 zero percent floor and experience 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 planet 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 can 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 80k 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 zero percent 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 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 amazing 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 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.
