Invest the money yourself instead of trusting/paying someone else to do so. If you do pay someone to invest your money for you, check it more often than every 10 years.

Bingo!

Ye gods... To leave ANY of my money lying somewhere for 10 years and not know what it was doing seems crazy!

Hell, I want to know DAILY, let alone 10 months or (shudder) 10 years.
