Hi everyone, I have a few months left in my company
before I retire …. and I would like to know about the options that I can
consider for my retirement plan. I am taking about some real good investments so
that I get my future secured (want it secured for the kids too). I have a few
options that I can look up to like REI, mutual funds and stocks…..but need a
bit of advice from you to make a better decision.

We cannot provide advice over the internet (against industry rules).  Your best bet is to talk to your friends about advisors they have used that they trust.

 
Good luck.

Apart
form the ones that you have stated there are many more options…..but as far as
I am concerned I would consider a wise investment in RE as that is one of the
secured options that I know. You just need to hook up a good
RE consultant or a real
estate investor that can guide you in your investments. That can be good for
the future prospects too and will definitely give you a more secure investment
than any other.

Perfect.  There's your free advice, Rodney, from Nicoll the real estate blogger.  I have no doubt it will prove to be worth every single penny that you paid for it.  Everyone knows that real estate is perfectly safe and NEVER decreases in value.  All that noise you hear in the press about people losing their homes because they are worth less than they owe on their mortgage is simply a vast right wing conspiracy.

But whatever.  Since it's only your family's financial security that is at stake, why bother paying a small price to a professional for help when you can get free advice from unqualified strangers over the internet? 

I'd add my own advice but I need to bop over to cardiologists.com now for some free advice on treating my chest pain.   Ta!

Great post Morphius!  You hit the nail on the head. 

 
I have been reading this forum for quite some time and this post finally made me register so I could reply, but you beat me to it.
