<<I recently accepted an early retire package after 55yrs old and 20 in company. Now I have time to really watch my investments. The fact is I still have two children that I have to put into college, but I don't want to start using my retirement funds for that.
The question becomes what instruments do I invest in to get a good growth and at the same time provide me with some degree of certainty of risk.
Im tempted to put myself in the first fools retirement catagory and be aggressive.
Anyway I appreciate your new special articles addressed to this subject and will follow it as much as I can. >>

Before you decide to emulate fully the Racy Retiree portfolio, I suggest you read next Monday's column. You should understand fully the risks inherent therein. After all, that's why it was called Racy to begin with.
