Roosevelt Financial Planning & Retirement Planning – Financial Advisor 405-418-6266
Financial Advisor Roosevelt
Are you in search of a financial advisor to help with your financial planning and retirement planning? If so, you’ve arrived at the most perfect place. We are Oklahoma City Financial Planning Pros and we are experienced financial advisors. First off, congratulations on being smart enough to seek professional help in this critically important area of your life.
As you are aware, we only get one chance in life and one chance to make this right. Life goes by much too fast. If we try and go it alone and come in short of where we should be, it’s often hard to make up for lost growth. The longer you delay, the harder it will be to come back and reach your retirement goals. According to a recent Forbes survey, only 52% of people seek out the help of a financial advisor or financial planner. Forbes also found that pre-retirees who do look for professional help have better financial gains than individuals who do not. It’s good to ask for help from a smart financial advisor.
Most people start with basic questions like: (1) How much savings do I need to retire? (2) What’s the real difference between a IRA and 401k? (3) How much should I save for retirement? (4) What about alternative investments? (5) ROTH IRA vs 401(k), which is better? The list of questions goes on and on. Finance and investing can be very complex and mind boggling sometimes.
We focus on providing simple, proven and very effective financial strategies to help investors reach your financial and retirement goals. After all, we know if a solution it too complicated to understand, it will be too difficult to implement and monitor and thus will not be acted upon in the first place. That’s why we know to keep things simple.
Financial Planning Roosevelt
Our first goal in financial planning and helping you succeed financially is to first get a starting point of where you are today financially. Are you on track to obtain your financial and retirement goals? Most people have no idea in the world. As we understand, before you can get to where you wish to go, you first need to determine 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 these all the time running various “what it” ideas to see how small tweaks in their financial planning can impact their overall results. The first simple retirement calculator we suggest you use could not be any simpler to use. You simply type in your age, the age you would like 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 getting on your retirement and the rate of return that you think you will achieve during your retirement years. It’s that easy. Then you just click the calculate button.
The results of your numbers pull up immediately. 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 off you are in funds, years and percentages. If you are not on track, it will even show you the 4 critical areas that you can change to insure you reach your goals. Based on your findings you can go back and plug in some different combinations of numbers and keep going back and forth and find out if you can reasonably make edits to reach your retirement goals.
It’s really very fun to do. For most people it’s a real shocker. Knowing where you are now and being honest about your current standings is half the battle.
Note: We work with a lot of high net worth clients who love using our plans to grow their net worth 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 pretty 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 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 last.
Roosevelt 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 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 expense and reduce your taxes as much as possible. We believe that our top financial plan that we happen to call The Barefoot Retirement Plan is the single most effective way to protect yourself and save on taxes that is legally allowed in this fantastic country of ours. It really is that powerful. In a nutshell, this is how our plan works.
You put in post taxed dollars to our plan. 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 money before you contribute it. On the surface this may not appear as good as your IRA or 401(k) but please keep reading. We will clearly show you how our program will significantly out perform these other plans, bar none!
You funds then grow tax differed within your account. If you need the funds for any reason at all like sickness, 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 take out 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 such a powerful thing. 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 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 completely 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 plan.
Retirement Planning Roosevelt
The next step we take in our retirement planning is to get you protected from losing money in the market. Second to taxes, stock market losses are the next big event that can ruin your retirement dreams and keep you working for much longer than you planned to. Large numbers of 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 mortgage/housing 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 enter into retirement. When the crash happened and they lost just about half of everything they had spent a lifetime building up, 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 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 better you could sleep at night knowing that you were completely 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 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 unique plan is smart on steroids.
Wealth Management Roosevelt
We also assist our clients with wealth management to insure they reach their investment and financial goals. One of the amazing 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 money, at the same time. Yes, we know the first time most 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 primarily been used by wealthy families, politicians and mega corporations. Believe me, they certainly 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 main stream and not just the rich.
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 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 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 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 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 0% to 17% 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 100k and you continue to earn the 0% to 17% on the entire 100k account value.
Additionally you earn whatever return you get on your $80,000 that you put into your real estate deal. So you are affectively earning two 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 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.
