If one were, say, a 78 year old woman in good health and one had to invest half a million dollars in something SAFE but which returned better than bank interest, say, if possible, 5%, where would be a good place to do that?Suppose this woman has an inherant distrust of the stock market in general.Tax free munis? or highly rated corporate bonds ..if this is her only income, thetas-free is mostly irrelevantThose are fairly low risk, right?yes ..'fairly' --and they can be 'insured' --but quick look at mybroker says -- to get 5%, you have to buy 30yr bondsand at lower ratings (A..AA-) And fairly liquid?dunnovalue will vary with market,and lots of munis are callable
