Hello Motley Team!
I am anticipating being heir to about $300,000 cash following my Mom’s death back in December. I am pondering what to do with this bucket of money. I am 46 years old, but I want to adopt a capital preservation strategy with this bucket of money (I am more aggressive with my own personal investments)
I can consider bond funds (preferably ones with less than 1% expense ratio), IBonds or any combination of safe investments that will earn more than savings accounts and CD’s. I can afford to leave the money untouched for 5 / 10 year, as I still am employed. Any suggestions?

My scenario is this:
No kids
No grandkids
No mortgage or car payment
Not married yet
Not a lot of credit card debt
No loans

So basically I have this money to invest however I wish. I do anticipate wanting to purchase a time share down the road though
