"Loot" - We all have a little, we'd all like to have a little more. And thanks to Fairy Godmother McCreevy, most of us have been saving for the past five years and we're ready to take the money and run. You could spend yours on a shiny new babe magnet with alloys, or in a far-flung luxurious spa (with tummy-tuck on the side), or perhaps blow the lot on a once-in-a-lifetime holiday for the family. But what are the other possibilities? Well, there are lots of smart, life-enhancing and profitable options that are worth considering before you let SSIA fever go to your head. These include: getting a mortgage, or second mortgage; investing in property abroad; playing the stock market; investing in equities; buying bonds; recruiting a good investment advisor; and figuring out the best pensions and retirement funds. You never know: you may realize that buying a foreign property isn't the no-brainer you think it is, that the stock market is less daunting than you imagine, and that a small amount of planning now will mean a lot of peace of mind when it comes to retirement. "Loot!" offers no money-back offers, no false promises, no hyperbole just good advice, helpful tips and solid information.
Above all, it will help you to make the best decisions for you.
