prosperity

Here is my best explanation:

'affluence' is the definition.
(thesaurus)

'succeeded in real estate securing one' is the wordplay.
'succeeded' becomes 's' (genealogical abbreviation).
'in' indicates putting letters inside.
'real estate' becomes 'property' (I've seen this before**).
'securing' is an insertion indicator.
'one' becomes 'i' (Roman numeral).
's' placed inside 'property' is 'prosperty'.
'prosperty' enclosing 'i' is 'PROSPERITY'.
