The right tax strategies can protect your clients’ hard-earned retirement savings

Many people don’t fully understand taxes or the impact they can have on their financial plans. It’s an important conversation to have with your clients. We can support you with insight about taxes and tax-deferred products.
Tax strategies can help optimize retirement planning

The power of tax deferral
Taxes can have a big impact on long-term investment returns. Most investments in non-qualified accounts will be taxed on dividends, interest, and short-term and long-term capital gains. By utilizing tax deferral, clients can delay taxes on accumulated earnings until they are withdrawn, helping them accumulate wealth faster.
