This podcast is brought to you with the help of Seven Investment Management, a firm of investment managers based in London. They specialise in multi-asset investing, bringing institutional investing techniques to ordinary people like you and me. 7IM put their name to my show and to my site because they believe in what I’m doing, trying to get decent, easy-to-understand financial information out to the world. I’m very grateful to them for their support. You can see what they’re up to at

Why bother building wealth?

Multi-asset funds should, in my not-so-humble opinion, form the core of anyone's portfolio. They are a kind of fire-and-forget, off-the-shelf, done-for-you portfolio of assets, which will work for you over time.

In this session, you'll discover:

  • Chris' definition of what wealthy means
  • Some of the different motivations he has come across in his career
  • The questions Chris asks to help people discover and verbalise their objectives
  • The issues that often hold people back
  • The ways that Chris has helped people overcome these self-limiting beliefs
  • The link between clarity of a vision and its likelihood of being realised
