The Anti-index Investment

An investment company that wants your $ but cannot tell you what it is going to buy:

(I tried tinyurl but it wasn't working)

Interesting, here I am a Vanguard diehard and I still feel the "pull of the unknown".

I've seen at least a dozen of these things set up to focus on the insurance industry. The investors must be on crack.

Re: The Anti-index Investment

Personally, I don't trust any speculative investment even if it is run by ex-Apple employees. That's why I keep all my money here:

Enjoy guaranteed returns of 20% per month*!

Also, if you're not familiar with HYIPs, you should really check out this website...it's hilarious too:

http://forums.12dailypro.com/smf/ind...?topic=26714.0

Where they find so many gullible suckers, I have no idea, but they are really the cream of the crop.

*(read the entire website before you flame me)

It is illegal to make claims regarding guaranteed investment returns. I reported them to the SEC :-).
