Financial News Update we 01/10/10

A slightly earlier (actually quite late as I type!) update this week as I will not be around tomorrow so, as always, I hope that you find something of interest…

How has your week been then? Are there any interesting conversations you are having at the moment? Is there a “theme” to what is being discussed with your family/friends/colleagues/clients?

I have had yet more enquiries this week on Long Term Care fees funding and how best to meet this ever increasing burden on so many families. There have also been some interesting conversations on investment risk versus inflationary risk when it comes to the right home for any surplus assets.

Anyway, there have been quite a few articles this week but only a few that were really worth mentioning…
