This week we learn some investment lessons from the most successful investor in the world.

In my mindset moment, I’m going to share some quotes from Warren Buffett.

My special guest today is Ken Raiss, director of Metropole Wealth Advisory. Ken answers a question about the best structures for owning an investment property.

Learn to Invest From the Most Successful Investor in the World

Warren Buffet's Philosophy includes:

  1. Adhering to a proven investment strategy.
  2. Being a counter cycle investor.
  3. Specialize not diversify.
  4. Being a value investor.
  5. Take a long term view and invest for the long term.
  6. Don’t invest in anything you don’t understand.
  7. Manage your risks.
  8. Bad times will come and go with surprising frequency.

Mindset Message: Warren Buffett Quotes

  1. The difference between successful people and really successful people is that really successful people say no to almost everything.
  2. What we learn from history is that most people don’t learn from history.
  3. Diversification is protection against ignorance.
  4. You only have to do a few things right in your life as long as you don’t do too many things wrong.

What are the best structures for owning an investment property: Ken Raiss

  • Decide your structure well before you buy
  • Buy a family home in your personal name
  • For investments ask what you expect out of it
  • Trusts can be an option depending on what you want
  • A self-managed super fund is a form of trust with tax benefits later on
  • Ask what your primary source of income is when deciding tax advantages for the type of trust you choose.
  • Property trusts for personal and discretionary trusts for businesses
  • Trusts with family lineage clauses
  • Testamentary trust set up after death as part of a will
  • Specific advice for your particular circumstances are ideal
