How to save £200 a year by avoiding high-spending retailers, but saving money on clothes and grooming
If you’re a high-net-worth person, you’re going to have to spend more than £200 per year to maintain your wealth, according to a new report.
That’s because the typical UK resident will spend more on things like homes, clothes and footwear than they will on goods and services, according the Resolution Foundation.
In fact, the UK is the only major country in the world where the median net worth of a household is £300,000 or less, according research from the think tank.
And the gap between the wealthy and the rest of us is widening, according a report from Resolution, which analysed data from the Office for National Statistics, the British Retail Consortium and the Institute of Fiscal Studies.
Resolution found that in 2015-16, the average household income in the UK was £48,746, down from £50,813 in 2000-01.
And the average spend per household was £7,842, up from £5,064 in 2000.
The median household spending was £3,567.
But the researchers argue that the UK’s current wealth distribution has been “fundamentally unfair” because of the way it’s been built up.
So what can you do to improve your wealth?
In its report, Resolution states that “the richest 1% of households” in the country are able to buy as much as a quarter of all UK assets, including shares, bonds and real estate.
The wealthiest 1% own a net worth around £14.4 trillion.
So if you’re the typical household, the Resolution report recommends that you spend around £200,000 on goods, such as food and clothing, a savings of around £15,000 a year.
The report also advises that you save around £150 a year on grooming, grooming products, household cleaning and washing, and personal grooming and hair products.
The Resolution Foundation’s report also outlines a number of “wealth building” ideas that could help you improve your net worth, including a higher percentage of your assets in a bank account, using savings accounts to save more, investing in a home, owning a property, and investing in an online investment account.
And it’s not just the wealthy that can benefit from these ideas, according of the report.
It also recommends that “a wider range of wealth managers” be licensed to offer investment products and services.
But how do you achieve these goals?
Well, you could either go for an “active asset management” approach to managing your assets, such a wealth-building strategy.
This involves “actively managing” the money you have, with a focus on buying a diversified mix of investments, like stocks, bonds, property, cash and other assets.
It’s a similar strategy to the one the Resolution foundation uses, and is available to UK citizens aged 16-35.
But what happens when you want to get into a savings account?
That’s a whole other story.
Resolutions report says there’s no specific advice on how to get started with an online account, but there is a wealth management service that can help you.
The MoneyGuard service offers “quick money management” which allows you to set up a bank transfer and cash-transfer account.
But, you’ll need to have an existing bank account in the Netherlands and have a credit card with a maximum balance of £20,000.
The service then lets you set up recurring payments, such at the end of a month, and will “manage your money like a bank.”
And you can set up alerts that will allow you to receive alerts on the latest interest rates, and your balance at the start of each month.
Resolving says the service will cost around £5 a month to set-up, but it offers a “fast money management service” for less than £5 per month.
But there are also other options.
One of them is the Bankrate app, which lets you see the current interest rates and your savings rate.
Another option is the Moneypak service, which offers monthly and annual reports on the value of your savings account.
There’s also a wealth building service from Wealth-X which offers a range of “active” investing strategies.
But it’s important to understand the types of investments you should choose for your investments.
For instance, the MoneyPak app offers a low-cost diversified portfolio of stocks, shares and bonds.
But it’s also one of the most expensive.
And its high-risk strategy means that it’s risky for your portfolio.
But if you want a diversify portfolio of real estate, it might be a good option.
But as with most of the other financial products, the BankRate app and Wealth-x offer “quick cash” investing.
But these products are not for everyone, and it’s up to you to decide what type of investments are right for you.
