Why must we Future Proof?

 

The future will arrive even if we are not ready! (Costas Souris) Its either adapt and keep up with change or become a victim of unpreparedness. Simply, be prepared to protect the purchasing power of your money to ensure standard of living or the possibility of relocation! At least, be able to consider opportunities and meet challenges.

The opposite is disruption and uncertainty, happening faster than ever before. The speed at which “PEOPLE” need to adapt and change continues to accelerate.

Futureproofing tomorrow is a mindset, not a destination! It is knowing where we are and where we would like to be? Its understanding and acknowledging that there are personal and financial consequences, to doing nothing or being stuck in the past.

In this ever-changing world, the way we “did things 2 and 5 and 30 years ago, might not be appropriate for today, never mind tomorrow! Our dreams and goals with deliberate action can begin to future-proof tomorrow, today, moving away from uncertainty and disruption. 

Future proof tomorrow, today!

What is a 100 year life?

 

The 100-Year Life is a wake-up call that describes what to expect and considers the choices and options that we all will face. (Lynda Gratton and Andrew Scott - The 100-year life)

Gone is the traditional model of educate-work-retire. The way forward is a multistage life, not determined by our actual age; rather by the phase of life we are experiencing.

Gone is the traditional retirement age of 65; now with healthy choices and medical advances we will outlive our parents by 10 years, and our children will outlive us by 20 years!

Longevity is no longer about getting older, it’s really about getting younger!

The 100-year life makes it imperative to future proof tomorrow as our finances must stretch not for the traditional 10-15 years after retirement, but rather 15-30 years!

This is a call to action for individuals; people like you and me, that a 100-year life can be a wonderful and inspiring one. If you have planned? Are prepared? Have futureproofed tomorrow, beginning today?

Be inspired by the 100-year life by Lynda Gratton and Andrew Scott, London School of Economics

Multistage Retirement?

 

Yet, despite this reality, many continue to fall behind. They simply can’t keep up with our rapidly changing world. This inability or lack of action to “future-proof,” for many means an almost certain path to personal and financial freedom FAILURE. As the wise old saying reiterates “ When you fail to plan you plan to fail!”

But it doesn’t have to be this way. There are things we can do today - right now - that can make a huge difference on what happens to our tomorrow. Prepare for a multistage life, moving from full time work to semi-retirement, to a new career, to retirement, to charity work and … Being in retirement for 30 years, even if you enjoy financial freedom is a challenge in itself!!

As planners, we consult all the time on this very topic. Our job is to guide and plan on how to ensure individuals, families and businesses plan for Personal and Financial FREEDOM. Our job is to assist in future proofing tomorrow, today!

Enjoy a multistage life!

Pay yourself first ?

 

Seems like a dumb question? But relate the question to financial planning and ask yourself. Do you think financial planning is important? Its dull and boring for most! Yet financial freedom is all about a staircase, small steps, starting sooner than later, then enjoy big results! But never too late to start!

Financial planning is future proofing tomorrow, preparation, planning and execution of personal and financial goals. Where do you wish to live and retire (semi) today or in the future, ensuring the quality of life you desire.

For a plan to succeed, we need to identify our goals and use existing resources in the best possible way to achieve them. Financial planning is no exception to this rule.

Warren Buffett: “Pay yourself first, save, invest”

A financial plan for global citizens
Globalisation presents opportunities and challenges in a fast paced and uncertain world. Where we live today or tomorrow, what career we follow, how we upskill, change careers and countries as the world digitises and technology forces change, the way our parents “did things” is not how we will achieve our goals and wealth creation. The 100-year life is a reality and planning for it imperative!

Financial Temperature check
With families and assets scattered around the globe, a review provides a holistic picture. What is your income, in which currencies, investments at work, retirement goals, tax and estate planning, self, family and business protection, understanding how soon wealth doubles!

What is Fixed Income by Alternatives?


Fixed Income by alternatives gives investors steady and predictable income through regular interest or dividend payments. The income is unrelated to markets and is not volatile!

If income and dividends are reinvested this compounds returns giving investors consistent growth unrelated to rollercoaster markets.

Capital is secured by collateral.

What are Alternatives?
 

Traditional Investing
Stocks/Shares/Equities, direct or via funds
Bonds/Gilts/Treasuries, direct or via funds
Cash/Money Market, direct or via funds
Combinations of the above
EG. Balanced fund (Equities 60%-Bonds 40%)

The last decade has disappointed and investors seeking stability and returns have turned  to alternatives to achieve their financial goals.

Non-Traditional Investing / Referred to as Alternatives
Art, Exotic Cars, Gold Coins, Crypto, Rare-Earth Metals like Lithium used in Batteries, Property, Photovoltaic and Wind Power, AI, Private Equity and Private Lending. The list of alternatives keeps expanding. Just 20 years ago, alternative investments represented $4.8 trillion, or 6%, of global assets under management, and hedge funds constituted much of that allocation.

Today, alternative investments are larger than ever, sitting at $22 trillion in assets under management, or 15% of global assets under management. (Jan 2024) And projected to double within the next 5 years.

Quality Group has made it our business to understand the function of alternatives, and how to employ such assets to achieve investor financial goals on their journey to financial independence.

We specialise in private equity and private lending which provides exceptional benefits for disrupted roller coaster investment markets. and an uncertain world.

Investing in £ or $ or € or R
# Steady consistent returns
# Income or growth options
# With capital security

○ better than bank deposit rates
○ exceeding inflation
○ disconnected from markets

# Returns are above average

Income-Growth | Commercial USA Medical Property



Why invest in USA Medical property?

The USA medical sector is huge, affluent, and dynamic. The USA is a wealthy nation with more than 98 million citizens earning more than $100 000 pa. The aging population can afford medical care for quality of life.

“Daily 10 000 turn 65!”

The age of the 100-year life is upon us. We will outlive our parents by 10 years and our children will outlive us by 20 years. Medical advances and better Lifestyle choices with access to twenty first century medical services promotes quality of life.

Recession Resilient
The USA healthcare industry has proven to be “recession-resilient”, in the most difficult of times including COVID. This makes it a compelling sector in which to invest.

The Secret is in the Tenant
The business model  … Let’s explain. Patients can be divided into two broad categories. Those that have-to-have medical treatment and those that can delay treatment.

“Have to Medical Services”

For example, annual check-ups with the dentist can be delayed, but cancer needing surgery, radiotherapy or chemotherapy, and other surgeries cannot be delayed. A person involved in an accident, losing a limb, requiring recuperative care, to learn to walk again with an artificial limb cannot be delayed.

Steady Income as Rent is Paid
Doctors and Healthcare workers providing medical services are consulted and are paid by the patient in “good times and in bad times”. If the patient pays, the Doctor can pay rent, hence the term recession resilient.

100-year life – gift or a curse?

Investors earn an above average USD dollar income plus capital growth. So suitable for those seeking steady above average income, long term.

A hard currency passive income and growth is a solution to emerging market economic turbulence, maintaining standards of living, and peace of mind knowing that there is actions that can be taken to ensure long term quality of life.

Retirement is the longest coffee break!

Why invest in International Property?

 

Investment property Chosen to provide a financial return. It is not about personal preferences. It’s all about the numbers.
1. Rental return.
2. Capital growth

What is investment property? Property investors, typically in the early years use the banks money, a mortgage to purchase the property. The rental return is used to service the mortgage and running expenses of the property. Over time the property increases in value, and the investor can either sell or re-mortgage the property and use the cash to purchase another property on the same basis.

Property returns Investors pay a deposit and fund the balance of the purchase price with a  mortgage (bond) typically, give a return of plus 10% pa in hard currency. Over time a property portfolio is built up.

Passive Income Once a property portfolio has been built up, the property portfolios emphasis can switch to  passive income. This is when rentals exceed expenses and taxes, leaving a surplus, and this passive income becomes income that funds the investors lifestyle. As it is said often, “Earning income while you sit on the beach or sleep!”

Types of investment property

Physical ownership:
Student accommodation
Buy to Let Apartments & Houses
Branded & Non-Branded hotels, Hotel apartments

Secured ownership:
USA assured income
Senior living estates
Secured fixed yield income

Property is one of the oldest asset classes, and is the foundation of most family wealth; even in worst times people need a roof over their head, and rentals adjust ensuring there is a return!

Family & Business Protection

 

USD Insurance protection?

Why bother? Protecting self, family and one’s business is the objective of insurance. The same applies to keypersons, and partner buyout in a business caused by the loss of the individual through retirement, illness, or death.

Like we use insurance to fix or replace assets like homes, vehicles, and jewellery, lost, stolen or damaged, so life insurance benefits families (and businesses) in the event of severe or critical illness (Dread disease) disability, and death!

What is Severe Illness Cover? More and more people are suffering severe illnesses like heart attacks, cancers, kidney failure or mastectomies. This need not signal a death sentence. There are countless survivors who were able to beat their illness and go on to live a healthy, fulfilling life.

But to get the BEST medical care, can one afford it? As care is benchmarked in US Dollars. In soft currency countries it is a very real problem. USD cover is global! This road to recovery is not an easy one both emotionally and financially. On diagnosis of a Severe Illness … How will I pay for Medical Recuperation?

It’s a grim picture – and that’s before you even consider the financial implications of being out of work for so long. Severe illness cover pays you a tax-free lump sum on diagnosis if you get sick with one of the many illnesses covered. Medical aid and State care will pay for surgery and related expenses, but not for the financial consequences caused by the severe illness. Unable to earn an income, changes to lifestyle …

“If you’re ill, the last thing you need to worry about is money, … protection can let you focus on the important thing. Getting better!”

Disability? A disability is any condition of the body or mind (impairment) that makes it more difficult for the person with the condition to do certain activities.  This can be temporary or permanent. Money is needed for resources to help the person recuperate or adjust to their impaired lifestyle.


Death? The financial impact caused by death can be enormous. Is there cash for “food and shelter” for paying off debts, a funeral, education of children, changes to lifestyle!

“Two breadwinners becomes one …
One breadwinner becomes none!”

The monthly bills don’t change much. And then there is taxes and fees to wind up an estate. A family might be asset rich but cash poor. Result, assets are sold off at discounted prices to pay debts, executors fees and inheritance taxes.

So, would you agree that life insurance is important? Protecting yourself, your spouse, your children, and business partners from the potentially devastating financial losses that could result if something happened to you. It provides financial security, helps to pay off debts, helps to pay living expenses, lifestyle changes, and helps to pay any medical or final expenses!

The difference between dignity and the consequences of death, severe illness, and disablement, is money in the bank!

Retirement | within a 100-year life


Are you ready?
You need to be prepared for life after paid work. It is a gift if you are prepared or can be a curse! Stepping towards retirement, having the choice to work or not, embracing the planning process helps you prepare for that stage in your life.

Financial Freedom. Simply it is about achieving financial freedom, in other words, being able to live the life you want when your regular income from work stops.

Retirement roadmap. Of course, each person is unique, and there is no single route to financial freedom. But there are foundational basics.

On average …
Beat inflation
Beat bank rates
Minimise volatility
Avoid roller coaster returns

Tax efficiency and Estate planning. Minimising tax on income makes a dramatic difference on standard of living. A 20% tax saving is a 20% increase in quality of life! For dependants and heirs, reducing inheritance taxes increases generational wealth and standard of living.

Stress Free. Retirement planning is about personal and financial freedom. The ability to live stress free with no worries about personal safety, politics, healthcare, passive income needs, and inflation with quality of life, ensuring purchasing power as measured against hard currencies is in place.

Why do I need to plan for the 100-year life? We cannot predict the future, but we can prepare for it. A healthier stress-free future and standard of living is your gift if you are prepared.

“Retirement is the world’s longest coffee break … let’s make sure we can afford the coffee!”

Grow Wealth in the 4 Megatrends?

Where to invest? In this changing world, with uncertainty and disruption dominating the headlines, how we create wealth is transforming traditional investment methods. Equity investment over time will outperform, but which equities and in what countries one invests is evolving and changing.

Investment timeline Long term investment is about sustainability! Trying to time the market or stock picking the winners is a difficult task that history and statistics prove over and over most fail at and results in underperformance. Traditionally, wealth managers would focus on diversification across, countries, industries and companies and assign a risk profile, conservative (cautious) balanced, and growth (aggressive) Wealth management is evolving!

Long term trends Emerging trends are transforming investment markets globally. Four megatrends in particular have been globally recognised as macroeconomic forces that will fundamentally shape the world going forward, being big challenges and big opportunities.

Why invest in the 4 Megatrends?
Future Tech
Digitisation and increased connectivity and data are enabling artificial intelligence or AI insights that transform how we operate. With the younger generation’s increasing comfort in using technology, new business models and opportunities are emerging. Pre covid “zoom or teams” video meetings were unheard of! Today, the hybrid work model has become a permanent way of working.

Healthcare Genomics and precision medicine are set to revolutionise healthcare.

With continued tech innovation, in gene mapping and sequencing, paired with the decreasing cost of doing so, personalised treatments with improved outcomes are becoming the way forward. The 100-year life is upon us, and we will outlive our parents by 10 years and our children will outlive us by 20 years.

Future Consumers Millennials have become the world’s most powerful consumer force. With 2.3 billion people, the Millennials are the largest consumer cohort. As they enter their prime earning years and increase their spending, they will drive a new age of consumption. What they spend their money on is where we invest.

“Going green” ESG investing The urgent threats of climate change and damage to the environment leave global economies no choice but to turn to green alternatives for energy, food, and transport.

Research and back testing illustrate that investing in the exponentially increasing megatrends would have outperformed by 182% over 5 years

Wealth Manager Goldman Sachs The Global Megatrends Fund comprises of assets that span across the globe, providing investors with geographic diversification and exposure to some of the largest economies in the world and is managed by Goldman Sachs with assets under management of $ 1,9 Trillion (12-2020)

Offshore Investments


Building Wealth in Hard Currency?

Accelerating financial freedom Building wealth in hard currency, diversification of assets, minimising investment costs and minimising tax is the objective for accelerating financial freedom goals!

Staying in cash, even in hard currency, is risky and will only make one poorer as inflation eats your purchasing power. But chasing return is also not the way. What counts is the average net return over the investor’s available timeline.

Investment portfolio design Every investor, has unique goals, has a different risk profile, has a different timeline for investment, has different wealth and cashflow available Portfolios are designed with this in mind.

What can I invest in? Offshore? Choices are many, funds, ETFs & index funds, sustainable ESG and Shariah investments, crypto currency funds, fixed income 100% secured by property, in the UK and USA. Currencies £ : $ : €. From cautious to high growth! With solutions focused on maximising income, tax efficiently, or growing capital.

Diversification Funds vs ETFs vs Shares Wealth available for investment also determines diversification, which tends to lower risk. One million dollars seems much, but in markets worth hundreds of billions, then USD 1 million invested across 6 shares versus
investing in six funds each worth USD 10 Billion, the diversification benefits are many and reduces investment risk but not necessarily return.

Types of funds and ETFs (Indexes) are many Money market, Property, Bonds, Fixed Income, Equity, Commodities, Crypto, Thematic, Sustainable ESG and Sharia investments, with varying risk profiles from conservative to high growth.

Provider Partners We only partner with providers with track records, and who are regulated to minimise investor risks. We are conscious that service is crucial today and into the future.

Simply, we are allergic to poor performance and poor service
