Petrolia Financial Advisor – Financial Planning & Retirement Planning Pros 405-418-6266
Financial Advisor Petrolia
Are you seeking a financial advisor to help with your financial planning and retirement planning? If so, you’ve found the best place. We are Oklahoma City Financial Planning Pros and we are experienced financial advisors. First off, congratulations on being wise enough to look for professional help in this most important area of your life.
As you already know, we only get this one chance in life and one chance to get this right. Life goes by way too fast. If we attempt to go it alone and fall short of where we need to be, it’s often hard to make up for lost ground. The longer you wait, the more difficult it will be to make up lost ground and reach your portfolio goals. According to a recent Forbes survey, only 52% of Americans look to get the help of a financial advisor or financial planner. The survey also found that investors who do secure professional help have more successful financial gains than pre-retirees who do not. It’s really smart to find help from a experienced financial advisor.
Most people start with basic questions like: (1) How much do I need to retire? (2) What’s the real difference between an Individual Retirement Account and an 401k? (3) How much do I need to save for retirement? (4) What alternative investments can I invest in? (5) What can I do to insure I never lose money? The list of questions goes on and on. Finance and investing can be very complex and mind boggling sometimes.
We are known for providing simple, proven and very effective financial strategies to help our clients reach your financial and retirement goals. After all, we realize if a solution it too complicated to learn, it will be too challenging to put in place and monitor and thus will not be acted upon in the first place. That’s why we always keep things simple.
Financial Planning Petrolia
Our first step 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 obtain your financial and retirement goals? Lots of people have no idea at all. As we know for sure, before you can get to where you want to go, you first need to determine where you are right now.
With our plan and with keeping things simple, we have created 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.
Many of our clients use them all the time running various “what it” calculations to see how little changes in their financial planning can impact their end results. The first simple retirement calculator we suggest you use could not be any simpler to use. You simply plug in your age, the age you desire to retire, the amount you currently have saved for retirement now, how much you add to 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 estimate you will achieve during your retirement years. That’s all there is. Then 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 reach 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 are not on track, it will even show you the four main areas that you can change to insure you reach your goals. Based on your findings you can go back and enter in some different combinations of numbers and keep going back and forth and find out if you can reasonably make edits to reach your financial goals.
It’s really much fun to do. For most people it’s a real eye-opener. Finding out where you are now and being honest about your current situation is half the battle.
Note: We work with quite a few high net worth people who love using our strategies to grow their accounts and protect themselves from rising tax rates, creditors, soaring fees and keeping their money private and off the grid. However, most 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 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 do.
Petrolia Financial Planners
As financial planners, often 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 largest financial expense 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 for us to focus on this major cost 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 successful way to protect yourself and save on taxes that is legally allowed in this amazing country of ours. It truly 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 program 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 an open mind. We will clearly demonstrate how our plan will blow away 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 money out at any time. We will show you exactly how you will be able to access your money at any time 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 wanting 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 amaze 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 significantly.
By setting up a Barefoot Retirement Plan you can 100% protect yourself from needing to pay any taxes on the money you pull out. This one benefit alone can make or break most people’s retirement hopes and dreams.
Retirement Planning Petrolia
The next task we take in successful retirement planning is to get you protected from losing money in the stock market. Second to taxes, market losses are the next big thing that can destroy your retirement dreams and keep you working for much longer than you planned to. Many investors lost upwards of 50% of their accounts 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 their retirement accounts.
Millions of hard working Americans were just getting ready to begin retirement. When the crash triggered and they lost 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 strive to get our clients 100% protected from market losses and crashes, and yes, it really is possible.
With our unique plan you are totally 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 better you could sleep at night knowing that you were 100% guaranteed not to lose a cent in market declines. This one feature of our plan can make the difference between you having the retirement of your dreams or not.
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 Petrolia
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 program that we offer is that our program gives you the option, if you wish to use it, to leverage your returns and actually earn 2 different returns, on the exact same funds, 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 promise 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 huge corporations. Believe me, they do know the best ways to protect their funds 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 plan 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 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 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 100k in your Barefoot Retirement account. That $100,000 earns between 0% 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 $100,000 and you continue to earn the 0% to seventeen percent on the entire 100k 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 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 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 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.
