MANAGING SUDDEN WEALTH
This is a letter to my three children (a long letter with chapters and an index). I do not want it ever said that I never gave them insight into how to use their inheritance to provide themselves with a generous reliable income, pay minimal income tax, and watch their capital grow for the rest of their lives. Something, I have experienced since 2005.
Inheritance is just one way that individuals can have sudden wealth thrust upon them. There are too many stories of sudden wealth lost within a few years. The investment knowledge I am passing onto my children is something that everyone should consider.
It is written as if they know nothing about investing. From my decades of experience, I review various investments I have encountered. I then explain why GOOD Canadian stocks paying GOOD dividends proved to be the investment of choice. My wariness with investment advisers is explained. (It comes from when I acquired sudden wealth). I explain why a self-directed trading account with TD Waterhouse proved to be a safe, simple, cost efficient way to generate income and grow wealth.
Starting at the lowest level of investor ignorance, I walk them through the setting up and exploration of their self-directed stock trading account; why their wealth must be spread among 20 stocks; how to find 20 GOOD dividend paying stocks (that they intend to hold for ever) and how, once their portfolio is set up, they rarely have to spend more then two minutes a day monitoring its growth and the cash it generates.
My 50 years in commercial risk analysis has given me an unusual insight into investment risk. I took what I learned in creating a commercial risk scoring system 30 years ago (that is still being used by thousands of risk executives today) and applied that same logic to sorting stocks from most to least attractive. The matrix I developed to do this is provided, as is the simple, easy to use PC program developed from it.
My objective is to make investing easy and understandable.
Look for it to be available in 2019.
