    • I have been reading tgourhh this blog for quite a while but this is my first message. Sorry upfront if it’s too lengthy I am getting close to retirement, and need to make sure that my retirement income won’t run out. I have got plenty of money saved up in my Ira, but I have no desire to buy anything chancy like stocks. I am no expert on money and require some investment recommendations. What form of investment can you suggest? I’ve been reading tgourhh a great deal about Swiss annuities lately- & think they appear to be a risk-free option. Is it a fact that they’re safe from insolvency and divorce proceedings? Also are the tax breaks that they give American investors as nice as advertised?
