How to build generational wealth
Estimated show that maintaining generational wealth is not easy. About 70% of families lose capital in the second generation. By the third generation, the capital loss is at 90%. So a big part of the equation is figuring out ways to maintain wealth, not just build it.
But, obviously, the first step is to gain capital that you won’t spend during retirement. You may have had some wealth passed down onto you, which could make things easier as it’ll start the process in a snowballing method. If not, it may be a little bit difficult to get started, but not impossible!
If you are strategic with your investments and don’t leave any money unaccounted for, you’re on the right track. Make sure to make a clear distinction between what you plan on using and spending ruing retirement and what you plan on passing on. If the lines get blurry then you could end up ruining the whole process.
