Wealth, just like your health, must be carefully preserved. Your assets need to be protected against the potential threats of erosion by taxation, the effects of inflation and investment risks.
Whatever your level of wealth, there is nothing wrong in making the decision to prepare a risk aversion strategy. Risk aversion is a reasonable and prudent strategy for anyone who is sure that they already have ample assets to provide for themselves and their family into the future.
There are plenty of ways of preserving wealth in real terms, protecting against most of the uncertainties that may threaten it and allowing you to sleep at night, but the unidentified risks are a far greater threat to your wealth than tax. While tax may threaten a proportion of your wealth, poorly identified risks can destroy it all.
Professional financial planning can also help you to manage these risks and your investments, in line with your individual goals and objectives, understand your tax obligations, protect you in case of unexpected illness or job loss and ensure that your wealth is passed on to the next generation in line with your wishes.
