How early should you start to plan when it comes to wealth management?
In our opinion, you can never be too early to start. In fact, the sooner you begin to educate yourself on wealth accumulation the more likely you will attain the success you desire. Furthermore, you can never be too late either. The more knowledge you acquire the more chances of success you gain. So do no delay any further, especially if you are in high school or college. A great resource to get you started would be Robert Kiyosaki and the Rich Dad Poor Dad series.
Is there one plan that can suit all your needs?
The only plan that can suit all your needs is the plan that can suit all your needs. What does this mean?
It means that your needs will constantly be changing, therefore, if you update your portfolio accordingly you will find that your needs are being met. There are many factors that need to be considered, and these will and should always come up in conversation with your advisor. A great resource that can get you started is the Automatic Millionaire, by David Bach.
Will you have to make constant adjustments to your plan?
The short answer to this is yes. However, as mentioned above, this will be entirely dependent on you and your immediate, medium, and long term needs.
