Youi just have to "have" the money to buy Wealth. You don't have to forfeit it. To my knowledge you don't have to spend money at all to get Signature Gear and the only connection between money and Reputation is maybe for "Reputation:Has a lot of money".

Your Reputation doesn't actually have to be true either. It's about what others _believe_.

Then there are many Social Traits that don't require money at all. At least not in our world and those like it. There were times in the bad ol' days where you could buy Rank. That often devolved into Courtesy Rank though.

So there is no general principle that Social Traits require $ to acquire.
