Investments

There used to be a few people on MHF who did want to discuss investments and the markets. Presumably since they were using them to fund their lifestyle including their motorhoming.

I do not want to start a thread on this subject if those people have gone away or are not interested.

Thus I am enquiring whether anyone is still interested in discussing the way investments can fund motorhoming.

Another aspect of investments and motorhoming is how one manages, monitors and changes one's investments when away.

I'm definitely interested. If my plans come to fruition in the next year or so I'll be looking at investing money to fund a Motorhome lifestyle and possibly a property in France. I have some ideas about renting a couple of flats out near a hospital but that's it. All ears.

I often think a lot of people are reluctant to discuss stuff like this online though on an open forum. I often think the financial wizards don't like to share either.

I think at your age Barry , it's a good idea to check the market

Ourmoney is with a reputable investment firm

Twice a year we meet up with their rep and look how they are doing , same person Phil , and effect changes within the portfolio

The money is really being "care taking" for our kids

If we were younger I'd look at other ways but know I haven't the energy

We hold a cash sum back that our kids can borrow as and when

They negotiate the terms of the payback, period of time etc

The only proviso is that they pay it back according to the agreement and they always do

If we die whilst they still have outstanding loans , our will and executives are aware that outstanding sums are deducted from the inheritance due to protect those who have no money on loan
It's a way of insuring they don't need banks etc to finance extensions or even credit card debts that have got a bit out of hand

We did fancy buying a property abroad but skincancer has put payed to that, I wouldn't want to be left with a property here and abroad

However I'll rent yours Barry when you are not using it

You have said how you do it.

My question was whether people are interested in discussing investments, as were several 3-4 years ago.

Since you seem to be happy with your arrangements I assume you do not want to join in any discussion, so I will take that as a 'No' to my OP question.

I suppose it all depends on the amount that you were considering and how it was managed also by whom. Obviously the return would be a major topic as to how risky one wants to be.Ideras are always interesting. You could start a thread calling it Dragons roost, maybe.

Don't be silly all the time ask your question.

There is no intention of discusiing any form of investment here.

My OP was just to establish if there is any interest, and how many people, in even discussing the subject.

Does anyone know of the 'Property Trust' Will, this leaves the first partner to die share in a trust for the children and not to his surviving spouse which if that spouse needs care subsequently his share is not used for care as he did not receive care. This needs to be done before either spouse dies as it cannot be done after. There is more but has anyone already aware of this type of will whch also deals with appointing an executer and power of attorney during the couples lifetime.

I think this is what you may be referring to.
