To fund the choices we want in retirement, and to live well, is the goal for most of us.
We want to have the funds to meet our daily needs plus to be able to do something special most years; to own our home; and to have a nest egg for our retirement.
It is the nest egg choices that drive the hunger to get wealth, or get wealthier. Most of us want to replace our income to remain comfortable. The government assessment of comfortable retirement with an income of $59,971 per couple doesn’t do it for us. We are more likely to want to earn $200,000pa for the rest of our lives.
