A Voyage Across the Ocean
Imagine your life’s journey is a voyage across the ocean, your goals are the various ports of call and your financial plan is a sailing ship.
The hull is like your savings, your fixed deposit and any other fixed income instruments. A sizeable hull provides stability. However, an oversized hull will get you nowhere when sailing against the waves of inflation.
The sail is like your market based investments, real estate, business ventures, bonds etc. A strong sail helps you to cruise through the waves of inflation, and speed up your financial journey. However, an oversized sail will cause you to capsize or take you off course during stormy economic weather.
The Life Preserver
The life preserver is like your insurance portfolio. It keeps you afloat when your sailboat capsizes during financial storms. However, an oversized life boat consumes too much deck space and interferes with your enjoyment when the sailing is clear.
The rudder represents your goals and objectives. It steers the boat and requires constant monitoring to ensure that adjustments are being made to compensate for the changing strength and direction of the wind and the trim of the sails. Ignore it for too long and you will have a tough time getting back on track.
