This is financial independence…and how people get thereOct 21, 2019
There’s no one size fits all when it comes to choosing how to live your life.
And the same applies to designing a career or business, and where and how you are going to live.
What’s right for one person may not be right for another.
Today, a short discussion on some of the ways in which people seek to invest for financial independence.
Ideally, we like to think of personal wealth in 3 ‘wells’:
1 – Liquid funds (<12 months)
These liquid funds can be actively managed, and while not a significant percentage of your overall wealth, should be large enough to cover your day-to-day bills and living expenses for the coming year;
2 – Living, lifestyle, and leisure (2 to 5 years)
A second well of money which can also be actively managed to cover upcoming living expenses, holidays and travel, car upgrades, home renovations, school fees, and whatever else is on your 2 to 5 year horizon.
These tend to be reasonably liquid funds, most often a balance between stocks and cash; and
3 – Longer term and legacy (to retirement & beyond)
These are your safer, long-term investments that you ideally never have to sell until your retirement, typically including property and, for some, safe investments in large, established, systemic companies which throw off strong income streams.
If you manage your first two wells successfully then you may never need to touch these assets, and they can go on compounding your wealth for as long as you live.
These investment assets can ultimately form a legacy for your kids, or for other family members, or for a charity of your choosing.
