DIY wealth managementYes indeed, there is such a thing as DIY wealth management. Having looked at all the schemes where you are relying on other people, you could come to the conclusion that it is best to manage your own wealth. This is not an easy task because it might challenge your limited capabilities and expose you to very high risks of failure.

Nevertheless a lot can be achieved in terms of wealth management if you prepare and know what you are doing. To this end I have decided to prepare a short resume of some of the issues that you might have to consider as you work out your wealth management initiative.

I wish we were in an interactive setting because I am always interested in ideas from the people who read my articles. There may be some people who have wealth management experience. Such readers would provide invaluable feedback as we all try to explore this frightening prospect.

Be prepared for the challenges of going alone :-

1. Education is a crucial factor when you are trying to do something on your own.
Some people flippantly say that knowledge is power. Never has a truer word been spoken as the assertion that without adequate knowledge, your wealth management scheme will collapse around you. Education is the means through which you can acquire this knowledge.

If your portfolio is particularly complex, I would not rule out going for a formal course just to be sure of what you are doing. Apprenticeships are also a good way of getting a feel for the industry that you are trying to join. Please do not think that I am going way over the top. Wealth management is a serious matter and if it not handled with the seriousness that it deserves, there will be plenty of losses awaiting you.

2. For the investor who decides to do their own wealth management, certain courage of convictions is a must.
If you find that you are unable to consider the possibility of failure then at least you will be half way to the moral courage that will be crucial to the success of your wealth scheme. In the process you are likely to face many setbacks and challenges.

However if you really want to succeed then there is nothing that can really touch you. I suppose that if you have the ambition on tap, then personal wealth management cannot seriously challenge you. Most people who have successfully grown their businesses have done so on the basis of personal ambition and determination. The same principle has to apply in DIY wealth management.

3. I am the one who is always talking about Thinking Big.
There is a time for thinking big when you are trying to develop your own wealth management strategy. However this has to be the culmination of a long period of hard work and reflection. If you intend to think big at the very first instance of wealth management, then there is a high risk that you will not succeed. As always, baby steps are a crucial part of your progress.
