Leading Australian Wealth Management Specialist, Len Elias of TLK Partners, 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 isnt sporting the latest brands in designer-wear. As for the homes interior, there are more likely to be pets than Picassos. This is how most of Australias truly wealthy people live.

I work with a lot of high-value individuals, says Elias, and most of them are people you wouldnt look at twice if you saw them on the street.

Its Not Only What You Have to Begin With

Building wealth doesnt necessarily mean being born with a silver spoon in your mouth says Elias. Instead, its 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. Its 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 cant 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, youve sacrificed opportunity for many years to come.

A lot of people mistake conspicuous consumerism for wealth, says Elias. Its 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 theyre based on debt and liability rather than being assets.

If I Were a Rich Man

Accumulating wealth, says Elias, isnt as far out of the reach of the average person as most of us think and it probably doesnt involve luxury yachts and Picassos.

Money management - wealth management - is the key, he says. Its the secure future when you retire. Its your kids education. Its the legacy you leave for your kids and grandkids. And, yes, its a few overseas holidays, some stylish dining out, and a decent car.

Theres no single wealth-management strategy thats going to work for everyone. Were all different, and our approach to money should be tailored to match our lifestyles.
