Leverage the latest tax law changes to increase wealth.

Liquid Asset Rate

Welcome to the Wealth Curve Talk Podcast, in which John Smallwood, a certified financial planner, identifies key areas of pressure on your wealth and strategizes with you to reduce it.

In this episode, John continues his series on the Wealth Curve Blueprint. This time he explains the liquid asset rate, which is the amount of cash you have available for any expenses above the ordinary.

John is the author of 5 Ways Your Wealth is Under Attack. He has lectured at various educational institutions such as John Hopkins, Haas School of Business, UC Berkeley and UNC Chapel Hill. He has consecutively received the Five StarSM Wealth Manager Award since 2011, and is the former president and chairman of the Rotary Club of Red Bank Foundation.

John’s strength lies in his ability and commitment to continually improve the level and quality of the financial planning process. His macro view approach and dedication to his clients’ growth involves an evolving strategy that strives to meet the demands, desires, and needs of his clients in a continually changing economic environment.

Today’s podcast includes these vital points:

  • Achieving a savings rate balance means your assets should be spread around multiple types of savings vehicles and more than one tax structure.
  • Each dollar that you put into savings should build your liquid savings, short-term savings, defensive savings, and long-term savings.
  • If your savings are allocated in a lopsided fashion, you put yourself at risk: Clients who have all of their money in 401Ks frequently end up in credit card debt or with 401K loans.
  • You also want your money in a variety of tax structures, so that for some you pay taxes upfront (think Roth IRA) and for others your tax payments are deferred (think 401Ks and 403Bs).
  • You want to work to make sure that you will be in a lower tax bracket in retirement, so that you will benefit from your tax-deferred savings, rather than losing out.

When you work with us to put your assets into the Wealth Curve Blueprint, you will quickly see where your plan is overweight. Then, depending on your circumstances, you can reallocate some savings. The balance will be unique to you.
