What do you want to achieve in your life? And how do your goals tie into how your money is managed?
Seeking a specific rate of return is only one way to think about investing; other important considerations include your optimal lifestyle, what you are willing to risk, and why you want to grow your legacy. Goals-based investing focuses on what you want to achieve before recommending a financial plan. Goals range from buying a lake house or caring for an ill loved one to funding a charity or your alma mater or financing your grandchildren’s education at their dream universities.
None of us wants to wake up and realize we missed out on our goals because of the investment decisions we made 20 years ago.
