IGrow Wealth Plan comprises 9 detailed sections

In this week’s newsletter, I will unpack the various sections of the IGrow Wealth Plan for you in more detail so that you can gain a better understanding of just how comprehensive and beneficial this plan is for investors, and why it is the world’s number one wealth plan.

Jacques Fouché

CEO, IGrow Wealth Founder, Property Investor and Entrepreneur

The IGrow Property Investor Group was founded in 2006. Jacques is a successful property investor, entrepreneur, public speaker and author of several property investment articles and publications. "We give our investors the tools, knowledge and peace of mind to start a buy-to-let business and to make property investment the cornerstone of their pension fund for early and carefree retirement."

This plan is entirely about your financial freedom and early retirement as a property investor and is revolutionising the retirement industry as we know it. It is a fresh approach to thinking about and planning for your retirement. It’s a movement, aimed at allowing you to retire years earlier than expected, completely financially free.

The IGrow Wealth Plan comprises 9 detailed sections:

Sections 1 and 2: Your personal details & retirement goals

After gathering your basic details, we calculate the rand amount of monthly income you will need in today’s terms at retirement, and the exact lump sum you need in order to receive that income, which is linked to inflation in today’s terms.

Section 3A: Your investment portfolio information

Here we evaluate and analyse your existing investment portfolio and the growth rates on these investments to see if they are adequate for your early retirement goals.

Section 3B: Your current investment income projections

Some of the more important components under this section are:

  • Escalation percentage in income per year
  • Fund growth percentage per year
  • Capital fund value at retirement
  • Future monthly income required
  • Years of retirement income available
  • Your desired retirement age

Section 4A: Property portfolio summary

This section provides a comprehensive overview of your current property portfolio, to determine whether or not the property is performing adequately in order to generate the future cash flows in your retirement.

Here we:

  • Review data on an annual basis
  • Keep track of property performance
  • Make adjustments and optimise the strategy
  • Identify and dispose of underperforming assets
  • Unlock equity to build your asset base
  • Devise tax-efficient strategies

Section 4B: Current property portfolio projections

Here we evaluate how the future income tracks against your desired income during retirement.

Among other things we determine:

  • The required rental escalation rate in retirement, which the cash flow trajectory has to match.
  • The number of properties required to generate this cash flow - both before and after retirement.
  • What the additional properties you need to buy, with their respective purchase price, gross rental income, net rental and gross yields, gearing ratios, and in what type of structures.

Section 5: Combined investment and property portfolio projections

We consider the impact of combining invested capital in conventional investments as well as rental income. By combining the correct investment properties – investors will prolong their investment fund’s longevity into retirement.

We ensure we minimise the risk of capital depletion at and after retirement.

Section 6: An action plan

We will determine how many properties, and what type of properties are required to achieve the required cashflows in retirement at a specific period in time. This is vastly different from the typical recommendation a tradition financial planner will give an investor in order to meet the potential shortfalls in retirement.

Section 7: Property portfolio analysis

The key to acquiring property is effectively managing disposable income and eliminating expenses that are not necessary. In this section, we provide a holistic and strategic financing strategy to build your asset base, by leveraging gearing, also called bond finance.

Section 8: Comparison of opportunity costs using the internal rate of return

Using the internal rate of return we compare an investment property’s return to a traditional investment vehicle such as pension funds, retirement annuities, unit trust and share portfolios. We compare the future values for both capital invested in conventional investments vs investment property.

For example, the same R744 000 invested in a unit trust vs a geared property portfolio at the same growth rate of 8% per annum over a 20-year term will yield a R3 472 665 future value from a unit trust.

That same amount invested in an investment property will yield a future value worth ten times that at R34 472 366

Section 9: Recommendation on ideal wealth protection and creation structures

These structures are important for:

  • Tax efficiency before and after retirement
  • Asset protection, wealth preservation and wealth creation
  • Leaving a legacy
  • Running your property portfolio as a business
  • Estate planning using the correct structures

On top of the actual plan itself, we offer you access to IGrow’s highly qualified chartered accountants, certified financial planners, trust attorneys, tax specialists, property investment strategists, rental managers, a maintenance team, as well as financing and home loans consultants to support you on your journey to financial freedom.
