Investors can be driven by a range of motives. Perhaps it is building wealth off a low base. Perhaps it is growing an existing portfolio. Perhaps it is investing to meet the lifestyle requirements of a dignified retirement. No matter what your goal, some simple steps make the task much easier. Invest into the right assets. Ensure you have the right structures around such matters as taxation, pensions, and estate planning. Surround yourself with the right people to assist you in reaching your goals.

Success in managing investments likewise ought to be simple: the right assets, the right structures, and the right people. Look for asset managers that avoid complex structures, assets and language.
