Which retirement plan will yield me the best percentage of maximum return?
100% of people found this answer helpful

The big 50! Congratulations.....you are smart to plan out what to do with your excess investment monies and how you invest over the next 10-15 years will be very can make a big difference.

First off your saving choices are Roth IRA, Regular IRA, Non-Qualified account, or life insurance. Which one you should put your money in depends on your income now, tax bracket, and future projected income in retirement.

Some advisors say that you should "pay the tax now and contribute to a Roth IRA" but I only recommend that if you are in the under 25% tax brackets. If you are 25% or over, it usually makes sense to get the tax deduction now and then convert over at a hopefully lower rate when you retire. This way you can have your cake and eat it too.

The idea is to save a bunch of money into your tax-deferred accounts now, and then convert them over systematically once you retire, preferably before you start taking Social Security and at lower rates so you can maximize your income brackets.

If you saved over $1 million, then you're an accredited investor and there are other provisions of the tax code that may allow you to get other substantial tax benefits and convert your IRA over to a Roth IRA at 50 or 60 cents on the dollar.

Alternatively, most IRA accounts limit your ability to use margin, whereas with non-qualified account you can use much higher multiple to make (or lose) much higher amounts via leveraged strategies. If you have a good solid risk managed plan in place, that strategy shouldn't be overlooked.
