The Silent Killer

Is Keeping All Your Money In The Bank A Safe Option?

When I worked as a financial consultant. I was amazed that so many of my prospective clients viewed keeping large amounts of cash in a bank deposit account a safe option.

I used to hear the following statement around 10 times per day; “I want to keep it in the bank where it is safe.” As you know prices of everyday goods and services are always going up; my dry cleaning bill is now 10% higher than last year; I followed the Meerkats and went to comparethemarket.com to get a car insurance quote and this was 12% higher than last year and SKY TV did not even bother to tell me that they increased my subscription price by a full 11.25%!

Now I do keep a little savings in the bank for a rainy day, and I would recommend that everyone adopt a similar strategy. However, the majority of my capital is wisely invested in property and this strategy has paid me back and continues to pay me back handsomely.

You see the problem with keeping all your capital in the bank is what I call ‘The Silent Killer’ – i.e. INFLATION. In a nutshell, if your savings are only paying you 3% and prices for your everyday goods and services are increasing on average 10%, then your savings in the bank has effectively lost 7% of its purchasing power, in real terms your money has lost 7% of its value.

Now Here Is Where It Gets Really Scary

If the same scenario continues for 10 years, your savings in the bank will effectively lose 70% of its value. I have seen this scary situation 100’s of times.

Mr John Smith is 50 years old and puts all of his £100k into the so called safe place – a bank deposit account paying 3%. He plans to retire 10 years later when he turns 60. Yep, time flies – he is now 60 years old and realises he will have to delay retirement for a few more years because ‘The Silent Killer’ has struck and his £100k which 10 years ago would allow him to have a nice lifestyle, has now lost 70% its purchasing power, effectively it may look like a £100k, but in reality and comparing it to today, John Smith only has £30k to spend.

So, How Do We Destroy The Silent Killer?

To put it simply, you need to look for investments that can outpace inflation or at the very least keep pace with it.

Naturally, I have a bias to property investment. It has made me financially free – so I hope you can understand my rationale. There are other vehicles that can do as well, like growing a business or investing in well chosen stocks and shares, but property for me is the easiest of them all to achieve great wealth and financial freedom.

Property also attacks the ‘The Silent Killer’ from two angles.

As you know, property has two channels for making you money. We have the short term channel and the long term channel. To keep a property for the long term, you need the short term to perform, so you need positive cash flow income or as we like to say at Colordarcy, you should be looking to invest in “property that pays for itself.”

The long term channel is your capital growth and what I call the ‘BIG BONUS’. On average property values double every 7-8 years.

How Can John Smith Make Money, Instead Of Lose Money?

Now let us imagine that John Smith had used £75k of the £100k he placed in the bank to invest in two Atlanta tenanted apartments, which are paying a guaranteed 13% Net Yield.

Over the period of 10 years, John Smith would have earned £97,500 income after running costs, such as community fees, council tax, management, etc.

As you know property prices on average doubles every 7-8 years, so in this scenario, when John decides to sell his two Atlanta tenanted properties on his 60th birthday, he would be selling at £150,000, so John Smith has just made an extra £75,000.

So in 10 years, combining potential income and growth return, John Smith’s £75,000 investment has given him a gross return of: £172,500. Now if we add in his original £75,000 investment, John would have a grand total of: £247,000.

Let us contrast this with earning 3% on £100k over 10 years. Ok, let us be fair, let me say that he chose a really good bank and he received 5% per annum in interest instead of the miserly 3% that we get today.

In this example – where I will use straight line interest instead of having it compounded, John Smith £100,000 would have earned him a miserly £50,000. So at the age of 60, John Smith walks away with £150,000 and I dread to think how much damage ‘The Silent Killer’ has done to the real value of this capital.

The Big Question?

Are you going to stand back and let ‘The Silent Killer’ eat away at your hard earned capital? Or – are you going to grab your opportunities to stay ahead of inflation?

According to the ancient Greeks, Kairos was the god of the “fleeting moment,” “a favourable opportunity opposing the fate of man.” Such a moment must be grasped (by the tuft of the hair on the personified forehead of the fleeting opportunity); otherwise the moment is gone and cannot be re-captured (personified by the back of the head being bald).
