Three Phases of Wealth

 

Accumulation Distribution Conservation


Accumulation

In the wealth accumulation phase, your earned income is saved for both current and future needs and desires. While in this phase, many wealth-eroding factors could interfere and prevent you from trying to build the maximum wealth possible. The factors and problems you may face are…

Problems

• Debt
• Increasing Taxes
• Income Taxes
• Inflation
• Market Fluctuations
• Interest Rate Changes
• Lawsuits
• Lost Opportunity Costs

Some of these problems could be accentuated by utilizing certain traditional financial strategies such as compounding interest, dividend and capital gain reinvestment, tax deferred retirement plans such as an IRA, 401(k), prepaying mortgages, saving money for college education and many others.

Many pitfalls can arise that prevent the smooth and effective transition of wealth to the next generation. Some of the problems you and your estate may encounter include…

Problems:
• Estate Taxes
• Income Taxes

In these instances, there can be tremendous frustration and distress to already grieving heirs.
