I like the Vanguard idea best also, due to low fees, but keep in mind that none of the bond funds that anybody recommended are guaranteed to keep up with inflation.Vanguard has an investment planner service that costs $500.Re: the bank planner -- is he buying the bonds himself and then reselling them to you at a higher price? That would make his fee more expensive than the 50 basis points he's telling you about. (1 basis point = 1 cent per $100 or .01%)
