Thanks to all for your excellent replies and suggestions. I can see there is a lot more to this problem than meets the eye.

After giving this matter careful consideration, I've come to the conclusion that FIL needs advise from a good financial planner. Not only on this account but on his entire portfolio.

Yeah, I know, a good Fool should be able to do this on his own, but I would be very unconfortable managing somebody elses portfolio and he is too set in his ways to learn a new investment philosophy. I don't mind making a few mistakes on my own portfolio, but it would bother me to no end to screw up with somebody elses money.

Now, the question is, how do we go about finding a knowledgable, trustworthy, fee only financial planner ?

Thanks Again,
