Lord of Lagna in a decent position is itself a great asset which sustains a person throughout his life. The best place for Lagna Lord to occupy is the Lagna itself. Even strong Sun at a benefic place from the lord of Ascendent is a great asset.
The 2nd house itself, lord and Jupiter represent accumulated wealth. The association of the 1st, its lord and the sun with the second and its lord increases the natives wealth through his own efforts.

For example 7th lord and its Karak Venus associated with 11th may help the native to gain through the spouse.
The 9th house represents fortunes and, therefore, if the 9th house, its lord, Sun and Jupiter are strong and associated with good houses, planets, luck favours the native with financial prosperity.
