Rose was born and raised in China, but educated in the US. Consequently, she enjoys the best of both worlds. She aims to incorporate that philosophy into her practice and provides her clients with the same privilege. Rose was the first American Certified Financial Planner(tm) practitioner who ever won the annual international financial plan competition twice (2014 & 2016), sponsored by the Global PlanPlus Award. Additionally, Rose has been frequently interviewed and quoted by major financial media sources, such as The Wall Street Journal, Kiplinger, Forbes, US World News, Reuters, CNBC, Chicago Tribune, and InvestmentNews. You can see a clip of her interview with the local TV, WBIR, about teaching kids of financial literacy.   

Besides having the general knowledge of financial planning, Rose has two other distinctive designations: 1) RICP®--Retirement Income Certified Professional, which gives her the expertise to help retirees during the retirement in issues such as safe income withdrawal, Social Security and Medicare  planning, long-term care, etc, and 2) CDFA®--Certified Divorce Financial Analyst, which allows her to assist attorneys and clients to achieve the best possible equitable settlement and at the same time to avoid typical financial and tax pitfalls.

What are the best long term investments and tax exempt shelters?

I hear you--the tax pain. Fret not! 

First of all, have you maxed out 401(k)s, assuming you both use the traditional 401(k)s? If you have, congratulations! That’s at least $36K you don’t have to pay income tax.

Secondly, I would recommend you continue to do either a non-deductible traditional IRA or two-step conversional Roth. Either way may not help your current tax deductions, but they will help you cushion retirement funds for sure.

Thirdly, fund the HSA if you have a high deductible healthcare plan. It has triple tax benefits: upfront tax deduction, tax-deferred growth, and tax-free withdrawal for qualified medical use.

Lastly, if you have fund all three vehicles, you may want to consider annuities or permanent life policies for tax savings and low risk as you asked. On the other hand, a seasoned financial planner (CFP®) may be able to help you design a medium-risk but a higher potential growth than the CD and tax-efficient portfolio for your investment. Best!
