Stonewall Financial Planning & Retirement Planning – Financial Advisor 405-418-6266
Financial Advisor Stonewall
Are you in search of a financial advisor to help with your financial planning and retirement planning? If so, you’ve found the perfect place. We are Oklahoma City Financial Planning Pros and we are smart financial advisors. First of all, congrats on being wise enough to search for professional help in this most important area of your life.
As you are aware, we only get this one chance in life and one chance to make this right. Life goes by far too fast. If we try and go it alone and fall short of where we need to be, it’s often challenging to make up for lost funds. The longer you delay, the more difficult it will be to make up lost ground and reach your retirement goals. According to a recent Forbes survey, just 52% of pre-retirees seek out the help of a financial advisor or financial planner. Forbes also found that investors who do secure professional help have stronger financial returns than individuals who do not. It’s wise to ask for help from a knowledgeable 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 an Individual Retirement Account and an 401k? (3) How much do I need to save for retirement? (4) What about alternative investments? (5) Is a 401k better than an IRA? The list of questions goes on and on. Finance and investing can be very complex and mind blowing sometimes.
We focus 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 complicated to learn, it will be too difficult to put in place and monitor and thus will not be acted upon in the first place. That’s why we keep things simple.
Financial Planning Stonewall
Our first goal 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 reach your financial and retirement goals? Many people have no idea at all. As we understand, before you can get to where you want to go, you first need to discover 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 quick and easy to use, yet very effective. Our simple retirement calculators are totally 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 frequently running various “what it” calculations to see how small edits in their financial planning can impact their net results. The first simple retirement calculator we suggest you begin with could not be any simpler to use. You simply type 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 annual income during your retirement years, the approximate rate of return you are currently getting on your accounts and the rate of return that you believe you will achieve during your retirement years. It’s that simple. Then you just click the calculate button.
The results of your inputs pull up instantly. It will show you if you are on track to reach 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’re not on track, it will even show you the 4 critical areas that you can change to be sure you reach your goals. Based on those findings you can go back and enter in some different combinations of amounts and keep going back and forth and discover if you can reasonably make changes to achieve your retirement goals.
It’s really very fun to do. For most people it’s a real eye-opener. Discovering where you are right now and being honest about your current standings is half the battle.
Note: We work with many high net worth clients who love using our strategies to grow their net worth and protect themselves from rising tax rates, creditors, soaring fees and keeping their money private and off the Government grid. However, quite a few of our clients consider themselves to be mostly average.
If you are not on track to obtain your 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 live.
Stonewall 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? 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 most important to focus on this major cost and reduce your taxes as much as possible. We believe that our main financial plan that we happen to call The Barefoot Retirement Plan is the single most powerful way to protect yourself and save on taxes that is legally allowed in this fantastic country of ours. It truly is that powerful. In a nutshell, this is how our plan works.
You invest post taxed dollars to The Barefoot Retirement Plan. Yes, unlike your 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 invest it. On the surface this may not look as good as your IRA or 401(k) but please trust us. We will clearly demonstrate how our program will out perform 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 savings 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 you wish 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 so powerful. At the time this is being written, Bernie Sanders is running for President. He is proposing 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 blow you away.) 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 choice but to rise significantly.
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 Stonewall
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 issue that can ruin your retirement dreams and keep you working for much longer than you needed to. Lots of investors lost upwards of 50% of their money 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 their portfolios.
Millions of hard working Americans were just getting ready to enter into retirement. When the crash triggered and they lost almost 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 strive to get our clients 100% protected from stock market losses and crashes, and yes, it truly is possible.
With our patented plan you are completely 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 provides to our clients. Imagine how much better you could sleep at night knowing that you were guaranteed not to lose a dime in stock market declines. This one feature by itself 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. This plan is smart on steroids.
Wealth Management Stonewall
We also assist our clients with wealth management to insure they reach their investment and financial goals. One of the strong benefits of our unique and patented flagship program that we offer is that the 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 most people hear this, it sounds too good to be true and may even question if it is legal. We guarantee you this is squeaky clean and as legal as legal gets.
Until recently plans like ours have mostly been used by wealthy families, politicians and giant 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 wealthy.
Here is a high level look at how the leveraging option could work. Many clients choose our blended index account 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 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 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 $80,000 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 0% to seventeen percent on the entire 100k 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 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 patented 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 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 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 hesitate. 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.
