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.

Boeing 737 Max 8 woes crimp Asian airlines' growth plans

May 25, 2019

SINGAPORE — Asian airlines are cutting routes, revamping their schedules and leasing extra aircraft to fill gaps left by the grounding of Boeing 737 Max 8s after deadly crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia killed 346 people. So far, regional carriers have managed to avoid major disruptions, but analysts expect that idling the Max 8s, a fuel-efficient update of Boeing's popular 737, will crimp growth plans in the near future. As investigations into the crashes continue, Boeing anticipates a $1 billion increase in costs related to the 737 Max, including fixing software implicated in the disasters, adding pilot training and compensating...

Thai king is officially crowned, boosting his regal power

May 25, 2019

BANGKOK — Thailand's King Maha Vajiralongkorn was officially crowned Saturday in an elaborate centuries-old royal tradition that last happened seven decades ago. The coronation represents a renewal of the monarchy's power after the October 2016 death of Vajiralongkorn's revered father, King Bhumibol Adulyadej. It also comes amid more than a decade of political strife, including a 2014 military coup and a contentious election less than two months ago. The 66-year-old Vajiralongkorn has served as king for more than two years since he assumed the throne. On Saturday, he took the crown from the chief Brahmin, a Hindu priest who has...
