One of the most important concepts for investors to grasp is compounding.
It’s the principle on which most great fortunes are built...
And it’s far more powerful than you might imagine.
Quit the stock market at the top and buy back in again at the bottom.
It sounds great doesn’t it?
But while the temptation to try to time the market is considerable...
The reality rarely lives up to the promise.

Piggy-backing off my previous early retirement blog…
I’m taking a trip down memory lane to see what early retirement was like back in the day.

One afternoon, I received a message from an investor on LinkedIn.
He was concerned that his portfolio wasn't performing.
He didn't understand why, considering his investments were "capital guaranteed" and "inflation beating".
Could he have been sold a typically risky investment?
One that you, as an expat investor, might have been sold too?
I deal with a lot of investors who not only want help to grow and preserve their wealth...
But distribute it to their families too.
The latter part of financial planning is particularly important as family wealth can drastically decline across generations.
In fact, many family fortunes rarely make it to the third generation.
Which means your wealth most likely won't reach your grandchildren.
But that's only if you don't plan properly.
Science has changed every aspect of our lives...
Including how we communicate, travel, shop and even invest.
And the technology keeps improving.
In the financial world, those who don't keep up, often fall behind.
And sell their clients short.
We all know there's a lot of uncertainty in the world.
Events like Brexit and the US-China trade war have affected economies and markets which, in turn, have created panicked investors.
Almost daily, we're asked the same questions.
In case, you have similar concerns of your own...
Here are the answers to help put your mind at ease.
