Millionaires file for bankruptcy due to the simplest reason: numbers. They are always dealing with large numbers with their investments, assets, and banking endeavors. Sometimes these numbers can quickly get millionaires into financial trouble that cannot be overcome without bankruptcy.
Investment downturns can be devastating. We have all seen what the market can do to stock funds. We have also all seen a business endeavor fail, even if it was only on a small scale.
The downturns that millionaires face with the business and investments that they own are multiplied due to the shear size of the numbers involved. The asset sheet of a millionaire can decline rapidly. These downfalls can quickly plunge a millionaire into financial ruin. Sometimes only bankruptcy can satisfy all of their creditor obligations.
When a millionaire’s income source is strong and constant, they have the ability to indulge in an expense lifestyle. If this lifestyle cannot be supported after a financial downturn, the assets of the millionaire are depleted quickly. Some are unwilling to make major life changes quickly. This is another source of millionaire bankruptcies that hit the headlines each year.
The news also covers a multitude of millionaires that file bankruptcy cases on their corporations (that they own or partially own). Bankruptcy is frequently the natural demise of any large business endeavor. In fact, it can create a fair and proper venue for equally distributing the business’s remaining money and assets. Sometimes, a Chapter 11 case can even result in the successful reorganization of the business. The news usually portrays these “millionaire” bankruptcy cases in a negative light whether or not the case was best for the corporation.
Somehow millionaires frequently recover after bankruptcy. Remember, millionaires usually know how money works. They are also familiar with large numbers. Millionaires frequently spearhead large projects even after bankruptcy. Bankruptcy always offers bold relief after extreme economic downturns. After bankruptcy, new financial opportunities abound. Millionaires are not an exception to this rule by any means. They are able to act on these opportunities and find financial success once again.
