Financial Advisor Sand Springs
Are you searching for a financial advisor to help with your financial planning and retirement planning? If that’s right, you’ve come to the most perfect place. We are Oklahoma City Financial Planning Pros and we are experienced financial advisors. First of all, congratulations on being wise enough to search for professional help in this very important area of your life.
As you are aware, we only get this one chance at life and one chance to do this right. Life goes by far too fast. If we try and go it alone and come in short of where we need to be, it’s often hard to make up for lost results. The longer you wait, the harder it will be to produce better returns and obtain your financial goals. According to a recent Forbes survey, just 52% of individuals look to get the help of a financial advisor or financial planner. They also discovered that people who do ask for professional help have more profitable financial results than individuals who do not. It’s wise to obtain help from a experienced 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 do I need to save for retirement? (4) What’s the story on alternative investments? (5) SEP IRA vs ROTH IRA, which is better? The list of questions goes on and on. Finances and investing can be very complex and mind blowing sometimes.
We are known for providing simple, proven and very effective financial strategies to help you reach your financial and retirement goals. After all, we realize if a solution it too difficult to understand, it will be too challenging to set up and monitor and thus will not be acted upon in the first place. That’s why we know to keep things simple.
Financial Planning Sand Springs
Our first goal in financial planning and helping you reach your financial goals is to first get a starting point 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 understand, before you can get to where you wish to go, you first need to find out where you are right now.
In our alignment 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 user friendly to use, yet very effective. Our simple retirement calculators are free to use and they are online, so you can log on and use them at any time it is convenient with you and your schedule.
Lots of our clients use them very often running various “what it” scenarios to see how small shifts in their financial planning can impact their end results. The first simple retirement calculator we suggest you start with could not be any simpler to use. You simply plug in your age, the age you wish to retire, the amount you currently have saved for retirement now, how much you put in 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 believe 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 right away. It will clearly show you if you are on track to reach your retirement goals or not, and if not, it will tell you exactly how far off you are in funds, years and percentages. If you are not on goal, it will even show you the four critical areas that you can change to help you reach your goals. Based on your findings you can go back and enter in some different combinations of amounts and keep going back and forth and see if you can reasonably make edits to reach your goals.
It’s really much fun to do. For most people it’s a real shocker. Finding out where you are right now and being honest about your current finances is half the battle.
Note: We work with quite a few high net worth investors who love using our strategies to grow their net worth and protect themselves from soaring tax rates, creditors, soaring fees and keeping their investments private and off the Government radar. However, quite a few 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 live.
Sand Springs 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 think 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 clue, 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 so important to focus on this major expense and reduce your taxes as much as possible. 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 it 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 funds before you put them in. On the surface this may not appear as good as your IRA or 401(k) but please keep reading. We will clearly demonstrate how our program 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 emergency, 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 how you will be able to take out your money at any time with no 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 such a big 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 amaze you.) It only took us 13 months to go from 18 trillion to 19 trillion. With the way things are going now, 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 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 plans.
Retirement Planning Sand Springs
The next step we take in successful retirement planning is to get you protected from losing money in the market. Next to taxes, market losses are the next big thing that can ruin 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 many 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 happened and they lost 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 want to get our clients 100% protected from stock market losses and crashes, and yes, it truly is possible.
With our powerful plan you are 100% guaranteed not to lose a single dime due to market downturns, losses or crashes. I cannot even begin to tell you how much peace of mind this brings to our clients. Imagine how much deeper you could sleep at night knowing that you were guaranteed not to lose a cent in market declines. This one feature of the plan can make the difference between you having the retirement of your dreams or being devastated.
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 all of your previous gains are locked in and protected from losses. Our unique plan is smart on steroids.
Wealth Management Sand Springs
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 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 money, 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 guarantee 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 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 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 twenty percent in a given year, you earn 17% on your money, and your gains are always locked in. Or, if the value of the indexes goes down 20%, you maintain your 0% 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 under the sun 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 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 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 $100,000 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 investment. So you are actually 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 amazing plan but we are limited in space here. The best way to get more information on this program 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 might 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.
