Seattle, WA (PRWEB) March 06, 2013
Silverstone, a retirement account provider of self-directed IRA and small business 401(k) accounts, announces the launch of a new resource for retirement account investors at RetirementCalculator.org. The new site launch includes multiple resources aimed at assisting individual retirement investors in preparing for the somewhat daunting realities of retirement.
The new site launch includes the site’s blog which provides regular, unique and engaging content, outlining some best practices for retirement account structuring, asset allocation and general retirement account investing. The blog includes expert MBAs, investment advisors and helpful project managers to provide tips on money and retirement best-practices.
Social Security, Saving & Investing
The harsh reality is that most individual investors lack the capital to sustain a truly liquid retirement. In fact, recent studies indicate that those closest to retirement have, on average, less than $60,000 saved in tax-advantaged retirement accounts. In addition, the capital markets have not been kind to individual investors’ retirement funds, particularly over the last 15 years. In fact, from 2007 to 2008 alone, it is estimated that nearly $1 trillion in retirement wealth was immediately wiped-out.
“We recognize there are many Americans who’re wholly unprepared for having a comfortable retirement,” says company President Nate Nead. “Even the ill-prepared can take steps to ensure they do not remain impoverished during retirement. We intend to assist the would-be investor in establishing properly-structured, tax-advantaged retirement accounts.”
For the investor who’ll almost be completely reliant on Social Security, with little saving, the site will include information on how to maximize retirement pay and returns with less input using properly structured self-directed IRA and solo 401(k) accounts.
The new site launch includes a several free retirement calculator downloads. Annuity, mortgage and side-by-side comparison calculators for Roth and Traditional retirement accounts provide for investors with a way to gauge their investment decisions on sound investment logic.
The initial beta launch of the site only includes very simple spreadsheet versions of various retirement calculators. Later iterations will include asset allocation (for various life stages) as well as structuring for different events throughout the course of both working and retirement years.
With adjustments for individual needs, the site can work as a specifically-tailored help for those looking to retire and invest.
Silverstone provides retirement account insight for businesses and individuals seeking to set up, rollover and convert their retirement funds for maximized control. Specifically, the company provides self-directed IRA and real estate IRA products for investors looking to exit Wall Street and invest in products and services with which they may be more intimately familiar and comfortable. The company is located in Seattle, WA.
