I am doing a bit of an investing/finance 101 class for a friend. It's easy to forget that the people on these boards are not representative of the general pubic when it comes to investing and preparing for retirement, and both she and I were stunned at the gaps in her knowledge. We are talking entry level knowledge here, as basic as money market accounts. Don't know that she will ever get to the point of investing on her own, but she needs to at least understand when the professionals who look after her money are not doing things in her best interest, and the basic retirement strategies since retirement is just around the corner for this couple.

Can anyone point me in the direction of good basic links, not only on investing but retirement planning? I am trying to keep it very basic and fear compounding the problem by overwhelming her with too much too fast.

TIA and Happy Holidays!
