    Helping a mate spend $100000

    Purpose- to put his money where it's safe (comparitively). Strategy- buy and forget about it.. Goals- grow a bit of wealth over time. How active- not very, he's a chippy all week and cant be stuffed on w'ends. Y G-town?- Cause he loves the Cats!!

    Helping a mate spend $100000

    G'day, i'm after some opinions...I'll try and keep it short and sweet. A mate just received above amount of money through a will, he has no assets and still lives at home with Mum:rolleyes: He is a sub contractor chippy so work can be up and down, so borrowing may be limited? He wants to...
