Our Unique Approach
THREE MAIN INGREDIENTS TO WEALTH ACCUMULATION
Many advisors are focused on maximizing returns on investment portfolios - and the right asset allocation is vital. You have more control over your TIME horizon. The sooner you start and the longer you have to invest and build your portfolio, the greater your opportunity for success. You can't control what markets do, so RETURNS can be a wild card, without properly managed capital allocation. Yet few fully consider the critical importance of TAXES and strategies in wealth accumulation. Taxes can have an erosive effect on investment portfolios, making it a critical factor in how fast your money grows.
AT JONES FINANCIAL, WE TAKE A BROADER VIEW.
Most investment professionals, individuals or retail investors, and ironically even most CPAs tend to significantly underestimate the erosive nature of taxes on investment portfolios.
The bar chart above illustrates how erosive the effects of taxes can be.
This is why we spend so much time helping our clients engage strategies and techniques to help reduce, mitigate and eliminate the impact of income and a capital gains tax and minimize future estate tax liability.
There's no substitute for compound interest or the time value of money. The sooner you start saving, the faster it's going to grow. Some of our clients have been saving for decades.
Some have just gotten started. Some have generational wealth or momentum that may have been compounding for generations. Time is perhaps the most important ingredient when it comes to wealth accumulation.
The higher the Rate of Return, the faster the money will grow, or the more significant the pile will get.
Many investment professionals tend to compete on rate of return. And while Jones Financial doesn't take a backseat from a rate of return perspective, and our office manages well over $2B of client assets under management of Northwestern Mutual Wealth Management Company, we can't control what the markets will react to exogenous events, world economic crises, supply chain shortages, pandemics, etc.
However, we can control capital allocation.
