Planning for the future is one of the most common catalysts that turns someone into an investor but you may be surprised to find a large majority of people haven’t given it a second thought.
For the vast majority of us, financial freedom is the dream. Being able to retire early and leave behind the early morning commutes, creating a nest-egg to provide for your family or even just increasing the potential of your hard-earned savings is a primary aspiration. Unfortunately, for many of us, this vision is a far cry from the reality we face today.
Whether you’re relying on savings or working upwards of 20 years to build a pension, the question you need to ask yourself is this: Is it enough and will it arrive soon enough?
During 2018 we surveyed around 1,200 people – both investors and non-investors – about their financial plans for the future. We were surprised to find that nearly 41% of the respondents had no investments whatsoever, making their financial future an uncertain prospect.
This is why we’ve created 4 Stories, 1 Goal. At SevenCapital we’re investors ourselves and we understand the market. We work with a diverse base of people that are at different stages of their personal investment journey and invest for different reasons but we want to ensure that more people are planning for their future – whether they’ve never thought about investing or have taken their first steps on the road to financial freedom.
