How to Invest Your Money

Over the last week, I’ve been speaking with a number of clients and investors about their investment portfolios and how to best allocate capital.

It’s a tough one. With so much content being publish dictating how we should invest our money, it’s no surprise investors are being left a little confused. I feel as though many investors are allocating capital based on how someone else thinks they should live their life, rather than allocating capital based on their own life goals and priorities. I mean, who better to tell us what we want than ourselves, right?

So, I decided to create a blueprint to help you decide how to allocate your capital, with the following caveat: There are many other investment options that are available to investors than what has been captured in this design, although, I reckon you could probably place most of them in each of the buckets I have included. My point is, it’s not perfect, but a good enough guide.

If you have any questions, need clarification, or would like to discuss further, please feel free to get in touch.

Like any destination, before you decide how you’re going to get there, it makes sense to decide on where you’re going first.
