What is a Personal Wealth Target?

Approach for individuals or families to identify and quantify a specific goal. 
Then build a strategy for achieving it.

Step : Identify – understand the qualitative before trying to quantify

  1. What do I need?
  2. What do I want?
  3. What keeps me up at night?
Prosperity or success usually measured in T.A.I.L.S.
  • Time
  • Assets
  • Income
  • Legacy
  • Stability

Step : Quantify – anticipate the future values for each goal

Facts and Assumptions 
  • When is our goal going to occur?
  • What’s the current cost of our goal?
  • How much is the cost going to be? (inflation rates)
Tip of the day!
It is prudent to over-estimate the cost of your goals.  Especially, if it’s a goal based on “needs.”

Step : Build the strategy
