Why you NEED a Vegas fund

You get an unexpected lump sum in your bank account, what would you spend it on?

Let’s go to Vegas…….! First-class!

Do you think I am joking?

True story - when I lived in London my girlfriends and I started an investment together. We called it our Vegas fund. We saved £20 a month into a stock market investment fund and we used our ‘winnings’, the growth, to fund our girls’ weekends.

Okay, so we didn’t actually go to Vegas, we went to Tuscany, Stockholm, and other lovely places. Going to Vegas wasn’t the point, we were willing to take a risk with a small amount of money each month for the chance to upgrade our holidays.

This meant we were learning how to invest. We all saw our money invested every month, at different pricing points. We saw our investment go up, and down. We learned how to sell out when we’d made a profit so we could use our ‘winnings’ and our confidence grew as investors.

This got me thinking that everyone needs a Vegas fund.

It’s a great way to start investing.

  • You learn how to invest with money you don’t rely on for a living.

  • If you suffer a loss it wouldn’t impact you, you just wouldn’t be able to get that extra cocktail in the airport lounge.

  • You experience first-hand setting up your investment.

  • You see the financial markets going up and down.

  • You discover what investment style suits you so you can leverage your expertise and start an investment with greater intention and purpose.

To start investing, you need knowledge, confidence, and the right mindset. By setting up your Vegas fund, an investment that you aren’t going to lose any sleep over, you will get all three elements to support you in becoming an investor.

It's time to upgrade your lifestyle, leverage your wealth, and start investing.
