So, I have some money. (Some would undoubtedly consider it a considerable sum) But it isn't really when you consider that this is what I am going to rely on for the next 30 years or so (I am 58 and for various reasons (Health) I need to retire (The health aspects are not life threatening, or even particularly disabling, they "just" mean I cant continue doing what I have always done as a livlyhood) Managing the money myself really isn't my thing. I am sure I could learn to do it. But I would hate every minute. I am a hardware person, not a software one. Give me a machine to strip down and repair fine. But the idea of spending hours/days/months pouring over company reports in order to work out which equities to invest in ... NOOooooo. (I could probably learn to do it. But I am really not that interested) So, I need to find somebody who is going to do this for me. I am sure I am not the only person here who finds themselves in a similar position. The question is... Who do you use to manage your wealth (And therefore are dependent on for your future prosperity and quality of life) And how did you find them and how did you assess them?
