Frequently Asked Questions:


Where do you think I should invest my money? Answer: Do your own due diligence. If you can't figure out how to do it on your own then hire a fiduciary fee-only adviser on a 1-time, 1-task or hourly basis. Also join a forum where people are eager to help. Just beware that you may get a wide range of responses, including biased responses from brokers, insurance agents and other sock puppets who may be roaming the forums. Some insurance salesmen have attempted to muddy the waters in forums. Some insurance forums are run by and used primarily by none other than insurance agents who will never say a bad word about annuities nor other insurance company products that they sell like universal life, whole life, and variable life. You definitely don't want to go there for answers! Another option is to set up an account with a company such as Vanguard, which offers "light advice" services at more reasonable fees. Or use a so-called RoboAdvisor, most of which are free.
