If you’ve recently received an inheritance or had an unexpected windfall you might be confused by all the choices you now have.
It is important that you don’t make a quick decision that you may regret later. Before anything else, and before you’re tempted to take the family on an around-the-world holiday, it’s important to sit down and review your current situation and what your priorities are.
