A regular The Money Show listener sent the following question to Bruce Whitfield:
- "We are inheriting approximately R1.3 million and want to know what is the best to do with it. We were thinking of settling our bond and short term debt and investing the rest of the money. We should be left with about R600 000 to invest..."
Whitfield solicited help from Galileo Capital Financial Advisor Warren Ingram in answering the question.
