If anyone is still able to follow David Playfair's logic(?) (Money
Marketing, March 30), let me briefly finalise the issue.
I confess to ignorance but only of clairvoyance, not product knowledge.
My own circumstances allowed me to finish a 25-year mortgage in 14 years,
paying what I wanted when I wanted, not whatever was demanded whether I
liked it or not.
Whatever abacus David Playfair uses would make me the winner.
David assumes I did not have a side by side investment. As it happens, I
did. A unit-linked endowment, believe it or not. I have still got it, I
like it and it is mine.
Never been assigned, encashable at any time and doing very nicely. Isn't
it nice to be in control.
