Ship to sure

With the FSA regulating lifetime mortgages, brokers might wonder where that leaves Ship, which has acted as a self-regulating body since formation in 1991.

Bonds on the run

In 1999, I invested 100,000 in with- profits bonds because I wanted a regular flow of income and the prospect of some capital growth without too much investment risk. I already had some with-profits endowment policies which seemed to have done well. I thought I had done the right thing at the time but now I am not so sure. Should I cash them in and invest elsewhere?
