managing money

Estate planning and retirement planning are not the sole domain of big business or the individually rich and famous. It is a process equally applicable to almost any level of income that when practiced consistently – will eventually lead to the accumulation of a relatively large capital asset base.

Effective wealth management plans utilize personal savings (or corporate “savings”) and a combination of bank loans or borrowed capital in order to leverage higher returns from your basic investment. For a business, additional capital can come from distributing equity among other stockholders and using this cash to leverage your basic asset base into a higher total return. In other words, it is better to own 50% of a $100M company than 100% of a $1M company.

Whether your wealth comes from corporate valuations or personal wealth – or a combination of both, managing your cash flow for maximum yield can cause a drastic increase in total return and substantially reduce the time to get there.
