    Money and Politics Meet again

    Money and Politics Meet again

    Governments and central banks are taking the low road. They are attempting to artificially stimulate the economy by implementing negative interest rates.  John says it will work probably work short-term Tom says it could cause people to hoard tangible assets like gold, silver, antique automobiles and art.
    What is it that really stimulates an economy long-term and causes wealth to be created?
    Why do you think most business regulations are put in place?
    A. To protect small business from getting overrun by big business
    B. To make it hard for small business to compete with big business
    Now picture yourself approaching retirement… what would you do if interest rates went negative on all of your retirement savings, and instead of earning interest on your money, you had to start paying just to keep the money you’d saved?

    How to Save More Money in 2020

    How to Save More Money in 2020

    Most people think saving money is about cutting lifestyle and luxuries. This is certainly one way to save, but it is not the only way because where you save your money can make a big difference in how much you get to keep. 💵
    Benjamin Franklin says, “There are two ways to increase your wealth. Increase your means or decrease your wants. The best is to do both at the same time.”  But increasing your means is not always as easy as increasing your income because expenses tend to rise to equal (or exceed) income (Parkinson’s law). 😟
    When you have a good plan for your finances you can save more money without working any harder; you can have peace of mind and be ready for good investment opportunities when they come to you.
    Whether you’re trying to save more money for retirement, to make an investment, or just saving money for a rainy day it’s always a good thing to minimize fees and taxes. And you want a big word called LIQUIDITY. Find out why this is so important.

    The Secure Act

    The Secure Act

    he SECURE Act was signed into law by President Trump on December 20, 2019. Here are some key changes you should know as you plan for retirement:
    Generally, the SECURE Act:
    Removed Maximum Age limit for IRA Contributions Increased the age for Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs) from age 70.5 to 72 Enforces a 10yr distribution window for most inherited retirement accounts - no more stretch IRAs  
    The SECURE Act is likely to increase age tax-qualified account balances because people will be encouraged to save more in these accounts. It will also increase government tax revenues because of the 10yr distribution rule on inherited accounts.
    Also under the Secure Act, employers get a tax credit by automatically enrolling employees in the company sponsored retirement plan (Small-Employer Automatic Enrollment Credit). If you don’t want to be automatically enrolled into contributions to your company retirement plan you may need to take action to opt-out.
    Now is a good time to consider how much of your money you wish to invest in tax-qualified accounts compared to paying the tax and building wealth in other types of accounts where you have more control, lower fees and less market risk.
    For example: Target-date mutual funds are a default option for most retirement plans with an automatic enrollment. Target-date funds are sold as a “set it and forget it management strategy” and they are also notorious for high fees. Fees are a killer whenever you try to grow your money.
    Compare target-date funds with the guaranteed values that build in participating whole life insurance policy over a similar time period. It could make sense to keep the control of your money and lock in guaranteed growth through life insurance + leave any legacy to your heirs income tax-free, instead of putting them into a higher tax-bracket with required distributions on an inherited tax-qualified account.

    Investment Grade Life Insurance - What You Need to Know

    Investment Grade Life Insurance - What You Need to Know

    What are people talking about when you hear the term “Investment Grade Life Insurance”? Answer: It can be just about any type of life insurance under the sun because the “Investment Grade” part is marketing fluff.
    The Supreme court has ruled that life insurance is not an investment but rather an asset, so what you really want to know is how the underlying life insurance works and how it would fit into your portfolio.
    This podcast show makes it easy to understand the value of guarantees from WHOLE life insurance in your portfolio, and why it pays to be wary of any other type of risk management scheme contrived within a UNIVERSAL life insurance contract. When you know what’s really happening, you’ll know what to do.
