Remember this: It’s not the rate of return you earn on your money that really matters. It’s learning how your money works.
Prosperity Economics Group will educate you on the critical components of every financial decision: cost of capital, access to your capital, growth opportunities, etc. We can also help you gain valuable insights into how to avoid strategies that hinder your ability to reach your maximum financial potential.
A common mistake: Are you asking yourself the right questions?
Most people make the mistake of first asking, “What product should I invest my money in?” or “Where should I put my money to get the highest rate of return?” Rather, we would suggest you ask, “How should I save and invest my money?” This question acknowledges that the answer to building and protecting wealth does not lie in the specific financial products you buy but in how you use various financial tools in combination with each other.
Here are the four most important questions concerning your financial future that we can answer for you:
- What rate of return do you need to earn on your savings to be able to retire at your current standard of living and have your money last through your life expectancy?
- How much do you need to save on a monthly or annual basis to be able to retire at your current standard of living and have your money last through your life expectancy?
- Doing what you’re currently doing, how long will you have to work to be able to retire and live your current lifestyle through your life expectancy?
- If you don’t do anything different than you are doing today, how much will you have to reduce your standard of living at retirement for your money to last through your life expectancy?
Our strategy sets us apart because we focus on safely climbing down the retirement mountain, not just getting to the top like most advisors. And where is the top anyway? What impact will inflation, tax law changes, market volatility have on our clients retirement strategy?
Advice: look at the descent, not just the ascent. If you try to grow your wealth in traditional ways, you will need to either Chase returns at the expense of increasing risk, or reduce current lifestyle to increase the retirement pot. We help clients discover and recover thousands of dollars they are throwing away every year in unnecessary and unknown taxes, fees and expenses and inefficiencies. We can typically demonstrate how our clients can achieve their retirement goals with 30-50% less money than they think. Or we can show them how they can produce 30-50% more retirement cash flow, after tax, from their nest egg, than they previously thought. We bring them to a level of financial efficiency they never thought possible.
