Financial Advisor Westport
Are you searching for a financial advisor to help with your financial planning and retirement planning? If so, you’ve found the right place. We are Oklahoma City Financial Planning Pros and we are experienced financial advisors. First of all, congrats on being brilliant enough to look for professional help in this really important part of your life.
As you are aware, we only get one chance at life and one chance to do this right. Life goes by way 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 funds. The longer you delay, the harder it will be to produce better returns and obtain your financial goals. According to a recent Forbes survey, only 52% of people look to get the help of a financial advisor or financial planner. Forbes also found that pre-retirees who do seek out professional help have better financial results than individuals who do not. It’s really smart to seek help from a good financial advisor.
Lots of people start with basic questions like: (1) How much do I need to retire? (2) What’s the real difference between an IRA vs 401k? (3) How much will I need to retire? (4) What alternative investments can I invest in? (5) Do I need life insurance? The list of questions goes on and on. Finances and investing can be very complex and mind boggling sometimes.
We specialize in 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 difficult to grasp, 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 always keep things simple.
Financial Planning Westport
Our first step in financial planning and helping you succeed financially is to first get a baseline of where you are today financially. Are you on track to obtain your financial and retirement goals? Scores of people have no idea in the world. As we understand, before you can get to where you wish to go, you first need to learn 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 simple and easy to use, yet very effective. Our simple retirement calculators are completely free to use and they are online, so you can go online 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 tweaks in their financial planning can impact their total results. The first simple retirement calculator we suggest you use could not be any easier 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 add to on an annual basis, your desired annual income during your retirement years, the approximate rate of return you are currently realizing on your accounts and the rate of return that you wish you will achieve during your retirement years. That’s all there is. Next you simply click the calculate button.
The results of your inputs pull up instantly. It will tell you if you are on track to obtain 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 goal, it will even show you the four main areas that you can make changes to to be sure 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 adjustments to achieve your goals.
It’s really quite fun to do. For most people it’s a real eye-opener. Knowing where you are right now and being honest about your current standings is half the battle.
Note: We work with many high net worth people who love using our strategies to grow their funds and protect themselves from rising tax rates, creditors, soaring fees and keeping their money 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 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 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.
Westport 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 amount most Americans spend on taxes is the single largest financial expenditure of their life? Lots of 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 expenditure and reduce your taxes as much as you can. We believe that our best 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’s legally allowed in this amazing country of ours. It really is that powerful. In a nutshell, this is how our program works.
You invest post taxed dollars to our plan. Yes, unlike an IRA and 401(k) (which are called qualified plans) where you contribute pre-taxed dollars, our plan requires you to pay the tax on the funds before you invest it. On the surface this may not seem as good as your IRA or 401(k) but please trust us. We will clearly demonstrate how our program 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 savings or anything at all, 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 no 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 big thing. 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 completely protect yourself from needing to pay any taxes on the funds you pull out. This one benefit alone can make or break most people’s retirement plan.
Retirement Planning Westport
The next step we take in our retirement planning is to get you protected from losing money in the market. Next to taxes, market losses are the next big issue that can end your retirement dreams and keep you working for much longer than you hoped to. Large numbers of investors lost upwards of 50% of their money 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 their money.
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 creating, it was devastating. That is why the team at Oklahoma City Financial Planning Pros works so hard every day. We work to get our clients 100% protected from stock market losses and crashes, and yes, it truly is possible.
With our one-of-a-kind 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 totally guaranteed not to lose a dollar in market declines. This one feature of the 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, you 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 Westport
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 program that we offer is that the plan 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 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 primarily 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 average person and not just the wealthy.
Here is a high level look at how the leveraging option could work. Many of our clients choose our blended index plan 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 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 suffer no losses at all.
You then have the option to borrow the majority of the money 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 funds 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 zero percent to 17% each year. Then you decide to borrow $80,000 from the account and put it into a sweet 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 $80,000 that you put into your real estate deal. So you are affectively 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 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 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.
