It is none of your business how much they have, and it would limit the audience as well. Those of a smaller grand total would feel out of the loop and those of a significantly greater total investment might ignore it for the same reason

then it's just ads. of course those in different positions would find it irrelevant: they would be correct. as it stands, those people to whom the example is irrelevant do not have the information to detect this.

is it my business? if a couple presents themselves as an example of success and a model for emulation, then yes, their actual position is my business.

your example is a false dichotomy. i did not request a dollar figure without perspective, but the complete answer, e.g., '$50,000, or 3% of my total liquid capital'.
