    Earthport or Kirkland lake gold.

    Both are very undervalued to my liking. Earthport has a great idea, but needs some refinancing and needs to get rid of its short sellers.

    Kirkland has a lot of potential in Canada to do some more excavating. It's safety record and environmental track are both very impressive and could teach a couple of the big guys some lessons.

    Big disappointment. But it has potential if Jobs actually listened to the public.

    I wouldn't invest in anything, far too risky.

    I would just put in my bank account and live off the interest.

    Isn't that a bit dull though.

    You have the chance to buy a 100m company, what would you do with your time if you just lived off 100k/year?

    Well, I'm only 19, I don't think I would find it difficult living off £100,000 a year.

    I'm not interested in designer clothes or fast cars; I would just go on holidays and do the things I really enjoy.

    No point in risking all my money in investments, and then have to worry about losing it all, leaving me right back where I started.

    I'd invest in building up a luxury real estate portfolio in the hope to one day have a business that is capable of designing and constructing its own unique buildings.

    That or invest in the luxury yacht industry.

    Real Estate is extremely interesting as well as some stock market sectors (Biotech, Healthcare/Pharma, Fertilizers producers, Oil sands explorers). However I'd invest an hefty % in corporate bonds (US$ mainly).

    And obviously develop my high school dream: an enormous Marijuana plantation in Ethiopia (good climate, cheap workers, corrupted government), a brothels chain and a winery in South Africa. Sex, drug and alcohol survive any crisis....

    Just curious to see what all your answers are for this question. Throughout the interview cycle, I have came across this numerous times - be serious and give detailed answers.

    Disregard client asset liability duration match and client dependent risk preference (i.e. it is your money, not a clients)
    I suppose I should say what I would invest in:

    I would place 50% in a FTSE100 Tracker fund and leave it for 3 years, 40% in UK gilts of short-dated maturity and 10% on deposit. I think staying safer and keeping liquid is the best option at the minute. Not investing in anything too risky or too exotic.

    Diversification? You need a lot more assets within your portfolio for it to be efficient.
