Unique Pension Guarantee

These pension reserves just get better with age. Maybe meds are the answer.

Diageo said Thursday it would transfer ownership of 430 million, or $645 million, worth of whiskey to a pension funding partnership.
Would diversification include Bourbon, Vodka, and Gin as well as Scotch? Just askin...
