Wealth Management Specialist Says the Truly Rich Will Shock You

We all have an image in our minds of what the truly rich person looks like, but we probably have it wrong, says Len Elias of TLK Partners. His company specialises in holistic wealth management that ranges through everything from accounting to investment and he says he has an inside track on the truly wealthy and what their lifestyles look like.

The Shocking Lives of the Truly Rich

Picture an unashamedly middle-class-home. The car is serviceable and relatively new, but not flashy. The family looks neat and well-cared-for but isn’t sporting the latest brands in designer-wear. As for the home’s interior, there are more likely to be pets than Picassos. This is how most of Australia’s truly wealthy people live.

“I work with a lot of high-value individuals,” says Elias, “and most of them are people you wouldn’t look at twice if you saw them on the street.”

It’s Not Only What You Have to Begin With

Building wealth doesn’t necessarily mean being born with a silver spoon in your mouth says Elias. Instead, it’s a matter of smart investment that begins as early in your career as possible.

The longer we invest, the greater the rewards. The power of compounding means we get rewards on top of rewards, and the longer we allow it to work for us, the more we gain.

“You can start as an ordinary, middle-income employee and still end up with a high net worth – or you could start out as a high-flyer and still crash and burn. It’s not what you have that matters as much as what you do with it,” says Elias.

Conspicuous Consumerism Comes with an Opportunity Cost

The concept of opportunity cost, says Elias, is easy to understand. If he has twenty dollars, he can spend it on chocolate, but if he spends it on chocolate, he can’t spend it on beer. The opportunity to get beer is sacrificed to get chocolate.

On a bigger scale, the money you used to buy a luxury car and a designer home is no longer available for investment – and if you used credit to get these things, you’ve sacrificed opportunity for many years to come.

“A lot of people mistake conspicuous consumerism for wealth,” says Elias. “It’s not the same thing. In fact, a lot of the possessions that people see as equating to wealth are the opposite of wealth-builders – they depreciate and they’re based on debt and liability rather than being assets.”

If I Were a Rich Man

Accumulating wealth, says Elias, isn’t as far out of the reach of the average person as most of us think and it probably doesn’t involve luxury yachts and Picassos.

“Money management – wealth management – is the key,” he says. “It’s the secure future when you retire. It’s your kids’ education. It’s the legacy you leave for your kids and grandkids. And, yes, it’s a few overseas holidays, some stylish dining out, and a decent car.”

There’s no single wealth-management strategy that’s going to work for everyone. We’re all different, and our approach to money should be tailored to match our lifestyles.

Nov 18, 2018

YANGON, Myanmar — Voters in several parts of Myanmar went to the polls Saturday in 13 by-elections seen as a test of support for leader Aung San Suu Kyi and her ruling party. Suu Kyi's National League for Democracy won a landslide victory in the 2015 general election, putting an end to decades of rule by the military and its proxies, though the army retains considerable power under a constitution it implemented. Suu Kyi's appeal with the country's Buddhist majority has not suffered much from a crisis involving 700,000 members of the Muslim Rohingya minority who fled a brutal army...

Nov 18, 2018

BANGKOK — A United Nations report says some 486 million people are malnourished in Asia and the Pacific and progress in alleviating hunger is stalling.

It says the main reason people still go hungry is poverty and unequal access to good food, clean water and toilets. Many who...
