I'm going to think about it for another (at least) 6 months. I've got a lot of research to do. The more I analyse them, the worse they look.

I was almost sure I could hear my financial adviser whimpering over the phone when I told him I wasn't interested in the variable annuity (too expensive), I wasn't interested in anything with a front load and I didn't like actively managed funds.
