Hi,

I'm delighted to share with you a conversation I had recently with UK-based Chartered Financial (&Life) Planner, Justin King. He shares his experience on:

- How to financially prepare to 'transition' to retirement

- Life-Planning's role in considering our priority & future-selves

- Justin's views on optimal Investment Management approaches for retirees

Hope you find it interesting,

Paddy

Hi,

It is a sad state of affairs when we have to rely on individual authors and thinkers publishing books and articles, in order to help the youth of today to develop financial wisdom. Yet, here we are!

Despite sounding very negative, I was delighted to speak with such a thinker and author, Will Rainey (former Pensions Actuary!). In our conversations he shared his ideas on:

- Helping kids to save, spend, & importantly to invest

- Investing for younger and older children

- What he believes is the optimal approach to investing

- How he transitioned from being in 'high finance' in UK to moving to rural Vietnam with his family!

Hope you enjoy the chat.

Paddy.

As with most things in Financial Services in Ireland, (Environmental, Social & Governance) ESG Investing in Ireland is one that takes a bit of figuring-out, if you want to do it right that is! In the hope that it will help you build and protect your own wealth, I share the following in this short piece:

  • The theory of ESG investing in Ireland, and why it is to be applauded
  • The practical application of ESG investing for Irish Investors, and why it is less than straight-forward
  • Some revealing research that shows most ESG investing is not actually ESG at all!
  • What we will do to get to the bottom of it

This week I share some interesting research and insights on how to prepare for the biggest surprises in Retirement, both financial and non-financial.

We will mostly all agree that 'Life' is not about reaching some destination in a particular state. The same can be said of our financial lives, but yet a large focus for most of us is to reach a point in the future where we have amassed sufficient financial resources to be financially independent. 

Learn from the people who have been there and done that in this weeks' episode.

Paddy.

Thanks for coming back to us in this Episode 201!

This week I tell you about bad investment funds in Ireland, it promises to be a doozy! I hope it is actionable and impactful for you in your own wealth creation and preservation. This week I'll share some insights on the following:

  • Another specific example of the ridiculousness that is Investment Funds in Ireland charging silly fees for delivering absolutely terrible investment outcomes for retail investors like you & I
  • What you can/could/should do if you are involved in these type of 'all-picture & no-sound' funds
  • A quick market update for 2020 (it'll be real short)
  • A quick market prediction for 2021 (it'll be even shorter)
  • Confirmation that neither the aforementioned 'update' nor 'prediction' matter!
