A Different Lens


Taking an emotionally intelligent approach to one’s wealth-being can pay serious dividends in more ways than one, says Georgie Loxton of Liberty Wealth Partners

In the modern world that we live in, there are distractions and demands everywhere. The constant ping on our phone or computer, the person who wants to ‘pick our brains’ over coffee, the ‘time-critical’ investment that will only come around once, our son’s football match. 

As entrepreneurs, business owners and executives, we can feel as though we are being pulled in a million different directions at once – work commitments, family commitments.  What we don’t need is for our financial life to add to that stress. And it doesn’t have to.   

The number at the bottom of the family balance sheet can increase without the statement getting longer. Whilst the rest of our life is busy and stressful, our finances can remain simple and focused.  When it comes to our investments, we can eliminate the distractions. We can actively ignore current events because we understand, without reservation, that they are just noise and that in the long run they will not matter. 

Most people don’t manage their wealth this way because most advice is given based on today – what should you do today, what investment is working today.  It’s advice that sounds good in the moment. But it means you are always in a reactive mode and it leads to the wrong decisions being made at the wrong time for the wrong reasons.   

Instead of reacting, we want to make sure we only act. We want to act on a clear, decades-long investment plan that acknowledges that what happens over the next week or month matters very little. What matters is how we, as stewards of wealth, act during a small number of days when everyone else around us is going crazy.  What matters is that we stay focused on not what is working today, but what has always worked. The markets will always be changing, but human nature is a constant.   

When you start to reframe your wealth through this lens, everything starts to become clear. The anxiety lifts and you free up time and energy to spend on the things that really matter to you.
