Wealth Preservation Strategies. Part 1

Preserving and Managing Wealth in a Chaotic World
By Joe Krier

Preserving your wealth should be the primary concern whether you’re a millionaire or a whether you’re a “thousandaire.”

The point is to make sure you’re earning something on your money.

Take all your money in the form of small bills, put it in a coffee can and bury it in the back yard. Be sure to bury it deep enough so Fido or a prying neighbour doesn’t find it …

Many investors are feeling this way as the markets continue their unpredictable swings and the federal government alters the landscape in an effort to deal with economic instability. Fear not, there is a better way. Preserving your wealth should be the primary concern whether you’re a millionaire or a whether you’re a “thousandaire.” Whether you’re 40 or whether you’re 80.

Believe it or not, Ripley, a variation of the Fido strategy isn’t a bad place to start. However, not with small bills and coffee cans, but banks and money market accounts. If you’re absolutely averse to risk, there’s no point in owning anything other than CDs and money market accounts. The point is to make sure you’re earning something on your money. After all, you worked for it. Make certain it works for you. Too many banks are making a fortune from people sitting on large balances in low or no interest savings accounts. They use your money to lend to your neighbour at four, five, or six percent or higher and simply keep the difference. It’s well worth the effort to visit to the local branch to get an extra couple percentage points. These days, most CDs and money market accounts are just as safe as the savings account.

If your risk tolerance is slightly higher, you can venture into the short-term bond market. With short-term bonds/treasuries issued by the federal government, your only real concern is if the federal government will still be in business when the bonds mature. The same is true with corporate bonds. If you buy a corporate bond issued by a blue chip company, perhaps one you are familiar with and have observed their stability and growth, you can often earn substantially more than CDs and money market rates without putting yourself out on a limb.

Taking this a step further, if you are ultra-conservative, yet you believe in the growth potential of the stock market, take a portion of your wealth and invest it, however, keep the following in mind:

Don’t Bet the Farm

  • Keep the percentage to less than half of your investable assets.
  • Look for more senior, hence probably wiser money managers and investment advisers. I prefer older men and women that have some skin in the game—money managers that have an ownership interest in their company.  Managers that are compensated based on performance-relative-to-market indices are not usually a good fit because it often forces them to be more aggressive than necessary.

A key strategy for the “growth” portion of your portfolio is a “sell strategy.”  This is a process of determining your maximum allowable loss from a given investment and giving hard sell instructions. The key to predetermining the selling point is that, when the time comes, there is no second guessing, the final sale is made.  For some people this is a loss of five percent. For others who can take the hit, 25 per cent. Regardless, having a sell strategy in place beforehand removes getting emotional about the transaction, ultimately preserving your wealth.

  1. Hi. I see that you don’t update your site too often. I know
    that writing articles is boring and time consuming. But did you
    know that there is a tool that allows you to create new posts using existing
    content (from article directories or other pages from your niche)?
    And it does it very well. The new articles are unique and pass the copyscape test.
    Search in google and try: miftolo’s tools

  2. Bardzo ciekawy artykuł. Dodałem go do moich zakladek na pewno tu wrócę.

  3. Hi, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was
    just wondering if you get a lot of spam responses?
    If so how do you reduce it, any plugin or anything you can suggest?
    I get so much lately it’s driving me mad so
    any help is very much appreciated.

  4. Hi. I have checked your businesselitesafrica.com and i see you’ve got some duplicate content so probably it
    is the reason that you don’t rank high in google.
    But you can fix this issue fast. There is a tool that rewrites content like human, just search in google:
    miftolo’s tools

  7. Kurye olarak hizmet veren kişiler, bulundukları lokasyondaki her adrese en kısa sürede ulaşma yolunu bilirler. Üstelik verilen bu görevi hava, trafik ve buna benzer diğer olumsuz şartlardan etkilenmeden yerine getirirler. Yani iş hayatı başta olmak üzere hayatın hemen her alanında önemli görevleri üstlenebilir ve başarıyla yerine getirebilirler. Özellikle büyük şehirlerdeki trafik kaosu ve adres konusundaki karmaşa göze alınırsa, kurye hizmetlerinden faydalanmanın bazı durumlarda zorunlu hale geleceği anlaşılabilir. Örneğin İstanbul’un bir noktasından diğer bir noktasına acil şekilde önemli bir evrak ulaştırmak gerektiğinde ya da hastanızın ihtiyacı olan ilacı acil ve güvenli bir şekilde ulaştırmak gerektiğinde, İstanbul moto kurye hizmetimizden faydalanarak sorununuza çözüm üretebilirsiniz.
