A Savings Vehicle That Makes All the Difference

Missed Fortune – Avoid a $100,000 Loss, Start Optimizing Assets Now!

Posted on | August 12, 2009

FACT: Every 90 days that go by without implementing the Missed Fortune Asset Optimization Strategies can result in a loss of $100,000 or more in future retirement resources for the average client when tax savings are calculated into the equation.

Why is that?

If you’re feeling a bit skeptical, that’s understandable. The average client who comes to implement the Missed Fortune Asset Optimization, Equity Management, and Wealth Empowerment strategies is skeptical at first, too.

New clients wonder how we can dramatically increase their retirement resources by repositioning assets (often those that have not been optimized) without increasing their outlay one dime.

The fact is, we do it all the time. That’s our unique specialty.

After people see the difference between the “darkness of the night” of their current retirement strategies, versus the “brightness of the day” of the Missed Fortune strategies, they are convinced to get in motion and get it done now.

Since it takes about 90 days on average to complete the True Wealth Transformation unique process, every month-every quarter-that slips by can result in a tremendous loss to precious future retirement resources, due to the time-value of money.

To illustrate, a typical client has some money accumulated in IRAs or 401(k)s that is not being optimized, and most will lose one-third of that value (due to taxes) when they retire and begin to withdraw money.

Many clients also have other non-performing assets such as CDs, money market accounts, and mutual funds that either have low yields, or may be volatile and unpredictable in growth. These accounts are often taxed-as-earned or tax-deferred, rather than being totally tax-free investments.

The average client also has a home worth about $250,000 – $300,000 with at least some equity in that home. Most people are anxious to get their house paid off and be “out of debt,” so they send extra principal payments on their mortgage, or they obtain a 15-year mortgage.

We show them a smarter, quicker way to get out of debt with successful equity management.

As you can see, most people are crawling, walking, or at best, jogging toward the finish line of financial independence, when they could be sprinting with Missed Fortune strategies.

With most clients, we reposition assets (between lump sums and monthly reallocation) during the first five years of their plan, which comes to a total of about $300,000 on average (some clients are substantially more, and some are less).

Over a 30-year period of a client’s life-for example, from age 35 to 65, age 45 to age 75, or age 55 to age 85-$300,000 has the potential of growing tax-free to a nest egg of about $4.4 million.

However, if clients delay starting their plan and that same money is put to work for only 357 months rather than 360 months, the account value at the same point in time down the road would be only about $4.3 million-a difference of $100,000!  No big deal you say?

Well, an extra $100,000 can generate $666 a month of tax-free income for the rest of your life-or into perpetuity. And that doesn’t take into account the savings of unnecessary income tax you could realize by employing the Missed Fortune strategies sooner than later.

The greatest question is why wait? If you had a serious disease and could be cured if you saw a specialist sooner than later, would you rearrange your schedule and take off work to get treated?

Many people have a financial illness that we cancure and it’s far better to tend to it sooner than later.

If someone offered you an extra $100,000 if you would take a day off your regular job to work on something else, would you jump at the chance? Missed Fortune is giving you that chance.

Make getting started on your Missed Fortune True Wealth Asset Optimization plan an A-1 priority! It can pay you back with huge dividends in the future!
