Wealth management discipline secures future financial independence

question posed is where does your money go - a wealth management discipline quanderyWhere did the money go?

Wealth management discipline requires a strategic wealth plan and will most likely include personal/ family financial budgeting. The disappearing money question usually arises just after the end of each financial year, when we review our ‘annual payment summary’ (if employed – or our Profit & Loss Statement if running a business). We look at these statements – and then we look at our Bank account and wonder what happened in between the earning of the money; and what is now left! These statements are about our available financial resource, our cash inflow.

For most of us it is fairly obvious where our cash went – firstly, the tax man took his share; then the Bank wanted its share to cover the interest and repayments on the house mortgage; then we may have had some finance commitments – and oh yes, we have to buy some groceries, clothes, health insurance, education expenses, presents for the family and …nobody go on an expense-free holiday!  These matters generally come under our personal expenses category.
