We bust “The Myth of Average Rate of Return” and explain how an investor can calculate the actual rate of return by considering economic and market dynamics.

Don’t have unrealistic expectations about how much an investment will be worth in the future. 

Did you know: Although it is widely accepted as an indicator of how an investment may perform in the future, the average rate of return can be wildly misleading?   If there is any kind of volatility in an asset, taking the average return disguises the recovery time needed when future volatility inevitability occurs.

Real-life examples of average and actual rates of return, using the S&P 500, show that taxes and fees can further deteriorate the return you think you’re receiving.

Why ride the roller coaster of volatility when there is an alternative that can offer both guaranteed returns year over year and access to your cash income tax-free? 

Many people graduate from college, only to realize that they choose the wrong path. In this video, Teresa Kuhn shares how she and her son decided that starting a business in his early 20’s would be much better for him than spending $250,000 on going off to college.

They leveraged a specially-designed whole life policy that she put in place for him as a child to help him launch his own company. Now at only 25 years old, the HVAC business he started is thriving.

Learn how you can leverage a specially-designed whole life insurance policy to provide options for your children and their futures. Talk to us now.

In this video, Gino Barbaro discusses why he purchased whole life policies for each of his six children.

One day they will need a place to put their savings, and what better place than in a strategy with many benefits, that can grow tax-deferred, and with the ability to take money out in the future tax-free.

As Nelson Nash talks about in his book Become Your Own Banker there is immense value in starting policies for children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren as EARLY as possible.

How will your child’s health change over their lifetime? These policies are permanent, meaning guaranteed coverage for life. Your child or grandchild will get a lifetime of protection, regardless of changes in their health or occupation- as long as premiums are paid.
