It seems many have ever present concerns about:  future taxes, stock market returns and volatility and having enough money to live a comfortable retirement. For so long, we’ve all relied on such savings vehicles as the IRA, 401(k) or the Roth. Despite some obvious strong points here, they all have serious drawbacks - future taxes (not for the Roth), contribution limits or income restrictions, market volatility - and limited liquidity.

There’s another retirement savings solution with none of those drawbacks - and many other benefits as well. Learn about them in this two session course.
