Working The Golf Course

wealthymattersAre you planning on networking over golf?If so,here are some things to remember:

Do Your Homework When Picking Out a Course: It should be one all of you will enjoy. Find out if the course has just aerated the greens. If so, steer clear. Is there major construction in the clubhouse or facilities? Where you choose to tee-off says a lot about how detail-oriented you are at work.

Be on Your Best Behaviour :Sports are revealing, your true personality is bound to show. Do you cheat? Are you a sore loser? Do you want your fellow players to think highly of you? Then put your best foot forward.

Observe Dress Codes :Picking the right outfit is also a test. Don’t be sloppy. Pick a style that works for you out of golf’s many fashion trends .  Read more of this post

Julius Baer Lifestyle Index

wealthymattersThe government may publish inflation figures fortnightly,but these are for industrial workers,agricultural workers etc.Inflation obviously varies depending on a persons lifestyle and consumption habits.Have you ever wondered whether there is an increase in the cost of living a luxurious lifestyle?If so by how much?

Now there is a way to answer all these questions.The Swiss Private bank Julius Baer has constructed a Lifestyle Index to capture the rise in price of luxurious living in Asia.

The Julius Baer Lifestyle Index is based on a basket of 20 luxury goods and services that represent discretionary purchases of HNWI in the four major Asian cities: Hong Kong, Shanghai, Singapore and Mumbai. Properties are accorded the highest weight of 30% and cars the next highest weight at 10%.The list does not purport to represent the comprehensive spending patterns of HNWI in the region,but rather an indication of how various items they spend on have risen by. While properties and cars have a combined 40% weight, Julius Baer has given an equal weight for the other 18 items in the index to sum to 60%. Read more of this post
