A JOURNEY OF CONNECTION

The things we value most in life are not money-filled… they’re meaning-full.

We’re not here to amass piles of money. For our lives to have meaning, we need to be intentional about relationships that are impactful and life-giving.

How you decide to work with your money is inextricably linked to these relationships. Seeing this connection is not always easy, you need an advocate to support your life values and tie them to your financial goals.

This journey of connection changes with every life transition that we grow through.

PROTECTING YOUR FAMILY

“You have power over your mind - not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.” - Marcus Aurelius

It doesn’t matter to us what your profession is, what matters is that you care for something more than just yourself.

The minute you see this, you realize that you have more invested in life and the world around you than can be simply represented in numbers and formulas on a spreadsheet.

The complexity can be overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be all-consuming. Together we will create the protection and mindset that you need to face your future with strength.

ARE YOU READY TO TAKE THE NEXT STEP?

“Whatever can happen at any time, can happen today.” - Seneca

Please feel free to call, email or book below and set up a complimentary introduction meeting. We will enjoy about an hour together (phone, video, or in-person) where you can discuss what’s on your mind and learn more about us and how we may be able to help you.

You get the opportunity to determine if we are the right people for you. At the end of the meeting, if we all agree that there is a good fit, we will move forward.

Ultimately, you are our client, not your money. We don’t receive commissions for selling financial products or any other inducement from third parties. We earn our compensation through an agreement based on the value provided to you and paid by you on a fixed fee or percentage-of-assets basis.

We feel this eliminates any conflicts-of-interest that are traditionally present in financial planning relationships and allows us to place you and your financial life goals, not your money, at the center of our relationship.

“A good reputation is more valuable than money.” - Publilius Syrus

I have a great network of clients on LinkedIn. I would love to connect with you too and engage with you inside of a my larger professional community.

Bite-sized chunks
No matter how hard we try, we never seem to get it all right… all the time! We were taught as kids that practice makes perfect, and this phrase set us up for unrealistic expectations. At some point in our future, we figured we would get it perfect. All we needed to do was keep trying and keep practising. A different way to phrase that saying could be that practice makes progress, not perfection. Progress is […]
Stop telling yourself these things
Everyone knows that building wealth can help to ensure financial security in the future. Yet, it is a small number of the world’s population who have had the opportunity and fortitude to save money consistently. In some cases, this is because putting money away is not the easiest thing to do. It’s a tough habit to form. As a result, we don’t give ourselves time to save, only time to spend. These behaviours cause us to […]
Key thoughts for passive investors
Passive investing has become the most popular investing strategy, globally. Simply put, it’s the strategy of buying the whole market (a diversified reach of stock allocations, ETFs and the like), and continually contributing to your portfolio. The long-term goal is to achieve the average market return. This strategy avoids buying and selling regularly (like with actively managed strategies), long hours of extensive research into individual companies and stocks. In theory, this sounds like an easy approach […]
Four Fresh Investment Ideas
We all want more from life. We want to live a good and meaningful life. This is how we generate hope, by believing that there is something new for us to discover, fresh for us to share and fulfilling for us to experience.  Sometimes life will gift us a reward that we haven’t had to work for directly, but for everything else, it is a constant cycle of trade-offs. We have many resources at our disposal, […]
Is active or passive fund management better?
The first thing to remember when approaching investing is that the best approach is dependent almost wholly on the investor and their desired investment outcomes. While this may sound simple, working out desired outcomes hinges on many factors and conversations and ultimately works out best when a trusted financial adviser guides the investor. In a nutshell (this is a very simple explanation): Active fund or portfolio management is overseen by a team of investment, market and […]
Is there more to life than happiness?
There seems to be an increasing drive to pursue happiness; we want to be satisfied and content with who we are and what we do with our lives. Whilst a few people seem to eventually “find” their happiness, many of us are still trying to figure out what would genuinely lift our spirit… and keep it there! The usual assumption is that we’ll be happier when we achieve success, but some successful people think their accomplishments […]
Divorce and your retirement savings
Recent times have been life-altering for so many, from emotional and health traumas to relational and financial traumas. We’ve all had to encounter a considerable onslaught of ‘stuff’ to process and deal with. It may just be life, but it’s still hard. Divorce is one such trauma that so many have to work through. It has a wide range of social and financial implications, as Lebona Khabo from Allan Gray highlighted in a recent article on […]
Savings Goals
The hardest time to save is when we’re ‘just saving’ with no end in sight. It’s like going to the gym to train; but, train for what?  As Lewis Carrol once wrote ‘If you don’t know where you’re going any road will get you there.’ Goals help us set the direction and motivation for our choices, and speak to our integrity and authenticity. Whilst most people want to enjoy a prosperous life, a proper plan for […]
Tax Savvy Investing
Nothing is certain in life, except for death and taxes. Benjamin Franklin said this almost 300 years ago, and it still rings of truth. The economic and political landscapes are now even more complex and connected than they were in the early days of American politics and free-market exploration. Making money has never been easier, whilst at the same time, it’s never been harder to keep. Saving and investing seem to be things that ‘only the […]
How to set flexible goals
Last week we looked at why it’s important to become flexible in setting goals. This week we’ll consider how we set flexible goals. Setting personal goals can empower us to transform our lives and drive towards our wishes – but if we feel like we’re not achieving our goals this can have an adverse effect. With the major changes we’ve all experienced in recent times, we need to shift to set flexible goals. What are flexible […]
Stocks vs Shares
In the world of investing there are myriad ways to create wealth. These systems are complex, integrated and offer just enough certainty to attract our attention, but not enough to be a sure-thing. Two investable options that are talked about daily are stocks and shares. They sound and look very similar, but are in separate categories of investing and offer slightly different opportunities and have disparate risk exposure. In this blog, things may get confusing, so […]
Why we need to be flexible with our New Year’s Resolutions
Towards the end of every year, it is customary to reassess our priorities, take stock of the year that was, and plan for the year to come. The emergence of the 2020 Coronavirus pandemic and global lockdowns disrupted our daily routine and our lifestyle altogether, throwing most plans and resolutions out the window! Does that mean that planning is no longer helpful? Or does it mean that setting long term goals is no longer relevant? Not […]
