Is $2 million enough to retire comfortably in Australia?

One of the most common questions I get asked is “How much money do I need for my retirement?“.

Here’s the thing, if you get the answer wrong on this or you get it wrong from the beginning. There’s definitely going to be trouble later on…

While the answer to this may seem simple at first. There are a magnitude of variables that could impact the amount of money you need to last through retirement.

Is $1 million enough?

What about $2 million?

Is it less or is it more.

​​It all depends…

Your lifestyle is unique to you. Some have a BIG lifestyle. Some have a SMALL lifestyle. Or somewhere in between.

Big lifestyle, big Number. Little lifestyle, little Number…

What type of travel do you want to do? Is it every year…every two years? Do you prefer business class or economy class?

Are you going to buy a caravan and attempt the big lap around Australia?

How often do you want to go to a nice restaurant and enjoy a nice bottle of wine?

What are your interests and what do these cost?

What level of risk are you comfortable taking with your investments?

​​This is just the tip of the iceberg…there are many​ more factors that need to be taken into account when calculating your enough number.

We all strive to live a great lifestyle. To be able to do all things we want to do. While fit and able to.

If you knew that number, would you…

Retire earlier…

Travel more…

Embark on your BIG Lap around Australia earlier…

Help you kids out more financially when they need it most…

Work because you want to, not because you needed too…

Take that once in a lifetime holiday without feeling guilty…

Take less investment risk than you needed too.

Sadly, many have little idea where they are heading financially.

Before your too old to enjoy it…

Do you have a plan to achieve your comfortable retirement?

FACT: Everyday you don’t have a plan is less money you’ll have in retirement…

One the biggest and costly mistakes we see is people waiting too long.

In fact, in all my two decades of doing this. There’s one phrase that I’ve never heard from any client, EVER:

I really wish I would have waited a little longer to do this“.

And, if you’re waiting for the “perfect time”, that’s never going to happen.
