Navigating the Game of Wealth: Your Life-Changing Liquidity Moment
December 13, 2023
Congratulations to Shohei Ohtani for achieving what can only be described as a monumental milestone in the world of sports – signing the largest contract in sports history!
This incredible achievement marks a pivotal "liquidity moment" in his life. Should you find yourself in an “Ohtani” moment of your own, we want to offer a few tips from Arta's digital family office experts on steps you can take when your financial landscape changes dramatically.
1. Invest in a tax-advantaged way
One of the first plays in your financial playbook should involve tax-advantaged investment vehicles. Permanent life insurance offers an avenue to grow your wealth tax-free while providing a safety net for your loved ones. The compounding effect of the tax benefits is considerable, you can tap into the funds during your lifetime tax-free, and you create a legacy to pass along to the next generation. Insurance is a versatile tool that can help you achieve long-term financial goals while minimizing your tax burden. If you’d like to learn more about permanent life insurance, schedule time with our expert.
2. Avoid estate planning catastrophes
Estate planning is a critical aspect of securing your financial legacy. As your wealth grows, proper estate planning becomes increasingly important. Ensure your assets are distributed as you intend by avoiding common pitfalls. Work closely with an estate planning expert (here’s a link to schedule time with Arta’s) to craft a solid strategy and prevent any unexpected surprises down the road. In short, make sure you have a trust and other legal documents in place to protect and preserve what you've worked so hard to earn.
3. Diversify and hedge against over-concentration
Diversification is key to financial success. While your new contract may be a windfall, it's essential to avoid over-concentration in a single asset class. Diversifying your investments can help mitigate risk and ensure long-term financial stability. Consider a well-balanced portfolio that spans various asset classes to safeguard your wealth. Think about ways to hedge against overconcentration by investing in alternative asset classes and creating custom structured derivatives products to match your needs. Here’s a link to schedule a call with Arta’s derivatives and structured products expert to learn more about this approach.
A winning strategy for the future
In the world of sports, a winning strategy can lead to championships and fame. In the world of finance, a winning strategy leads to financial security and peace of mind.
