My financial advisor said that the bonds were like a pie, with one year, five year, etc. pieces called "tronches". He is sending me documents from my portfolio substantiating and explaining them.

I sure wish that there was a magazine for financial companies like Morningstar is for mutual funds so I
could see where Salomon Smith Barney's financial managers are in relation to others. If any one knows of such literature, please let me know.

I have been reading a book called "Best practices for financial advisors" written by Michael Bloomberg and the chapter on Providing due diligence is what triggered this query; that plus the roller coaster volatility in the market lately.
