Exercising control over someone else's money behavior is always going to cost extra in fees, expenses and costs unless a family member wants to get in the middle of it gratis. I wouldn't.


Larf! SIL doesn't trust the Countess. The Countess, Mom, and SIL are the last of the (immediate) family. I think she (SIL) may listen to me long enough to get her to an advisor - once she is in a Vanguard (or other) program she may be inclined to leave it alone as long as she doesn't run low on funds.

Interesting situation. Could be worse. There could be no money.

... Hey! SIL is good looking. Would you like to meet her?
