    I'd use a nice chunk of it to buy junior oil producers and E&P firms. Along the lines of Heritage, Tullow, Afren, Dragon, Ithaca, Serica...etc.

    Some of these firms already have good P2 reserves while the others are likely to prove reserves in the future. Major oil company is being forced to consider more marginal fields and takeovers and these companies will become prime targets.

    Also, investment into basic materials and minerals in Africa is a decent bet as still much unexplored and large interest from China as they need to have resources available for future growth.

    The lack of serious responses is what sickens me about IB&C. Can't believe people can make a joke out of a thread as serious as this one.

    Anyway, I'd invest in
    - 2 chicks at the same time (perhaps invest in some inflation-linked bonds so I can still afford them in the future)
    - bout tree fiddy ounces of coke
    - over 9000 bottles of whisky

    If the company were in good shape, could it be a good idea to say you would hedge some of the money but invest most of it in the company you're applying to? You could then go on to say why they are in a good position, and why you think they will perform well in the future, demonstrating your knowledge & understanding of the company.

    EDIT: Of course you would need to know a lot about the company in order to give this answer to a good standard

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

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

    EpicFail my friend.

    I'd invest it in /b/, Anonymous and all those 1337 h4x0rs, and finally have those basement dwellers do something that would go down in the history of lulz for eternity. And when the party van arrives, an heroes will be born.

    I'd set aside a few hundred thousands to dabble in the AIM markets and plop the rest in some of the giants brought down by the recession. Start with housing, Wimpey/Barrats etc and probably move onto the banks when they stabilise.

    100 million lottery tickets, on a Wednesday night draw. Guaranteed to win, and would get the vast majority of the jackpot should other people match 6 too.

    and if you win you would be lucky to get half your money back after what the lottery fund takes and it wouldn't even be a sure win

    No the question is related to financial markets and private equity. Thus, take out all of the entrepreneurial startups etc - and go into the mindset that you are a fund manager for a hedge fund with $100MM capital that invests within equities, commodities, credit, OTC, etc etc. No personal expenditure such as buying a yacht etc etc.

    I said to buy short term gilts as if you buy long-term gilts now - i.e. with more than ten years to maturity, where the best interest rate levels are - you might have to hold them for the full term just to get your capital back. Also not subject to CGT etc.

    Surely the same for short dated ones. If QE isn't extended at the next MPC meeting in under a weeks time then surely they will lose value?
