At Off Wall Street

We have a great fondness for Frank Capra’s movie, It’s A Wonderful Life.

The film caries a Christian theme of redemption and contends that what matters most is not what we achieve for ourselves, but what we give of ourselves, for that alone, redeems our existence. Josh and Troy strive to live by these same values while serving their clients.

We are

Safe Money People

Our job at Off Wall Street is not to make you rich (that’s yours). Our job is to prevent you from being poor. We tell people that have entered retirement or are about to enter retirement, “You’ve won the game! Now, let’s not fumble the ball running the clock out.”

Where is it written, we must subject ourselves to 20%, 30%, 40% loss of our money from the stock market? Nowhere, but it has been ingrained into our heads that we just need to endure those losses. We are told that “buy and hold” is the best strategy. There are those that say a well-balanced portfolio is less likely to lose money, but are they willing to put a guarantee on that and sign it? After all, you work hard saving for that eventual day when you turn off the paychecks and start living life on the “play” checks. Leaving your future play checks to chance in the market seems too risky to endure.

Troy at one point in his career held his securities license. He understands many people enjoy chasing returns in the stock market. But the truth of the matter is, what people do with their retirement dollars shouldn’t involve placing a high degree of importance on stock market returns in order to have a satisfying retirement. If you go to the casino, you’ve been told, don’t RISK more than you can afford to LOSE. The same thinking should apply in your retirement.

We discovered a different approach to managing your money that is purposed for retirement income. Using an indexing and laddering strategy allows you to create true wealth without fear of losing your hard-earned money. No matter how much volatility exists in the stock market, your lifestyle will not be affected. This is critical for retirees who depended solely on their savings to get them through.

Risks That Can Impact

Your Retirement dollars

Market Risk

Just one 20% – 30% stock market crash can hurt your account balances and can cause you to run out of money years sooner.

Tax Risk

Certified Public Accountant and Tax Expert Ed Slott says “Taxes are a larger risk than market crashes.” If all your retirement income is in qualified plans like IRA’s and 401(k)’s that require you to pay taxes when you take the money out, you have a huge future tax liability.

Health Care Risk

Statistically, long-term health care costs can be a person’s largest retirement expense. Have you done anything to protect your savings and your family from being drained by this expense?

Income Depletion Risk

Will your retirement savings give you enough income to provide the retirement lifestyle you want, for as long as you live? Most have no idea.

Untimely Death Risk

Accidents and untimely deaths are always unplanned. The plans you put in place now can prevent some of the stress and financial burdens that would otherwise be placed on your closest loved ones.

Longevity Risk

Longevity is the great Risk Multiplier. Hopefully you will live a long and prosperous life, but longer life spans multiply the likelihood of each of these risks happening to you.

The Wise Man

Built His House on a Rock

“The wise man built his house upon a rock: and when the rains and the floods came, it fell not. The foolish man built his house upon the sand: and when the rains and the floods and the winds came, it fell. And great was the fall of it.” – Matthew 7:24-27
