Came into £10,000 recently that I don't need to spend on anything, so thought I'd ask what would be the best way to invest this amount with biggest gain and little/no risk?

buy to let mortgage. You need 10% deposit, so probably 5 grand short..

I have my entire life-savings in Morrison's bonds, and get about £70/month, bearing in mind these are low-risk and long term investments. Alternatively, if you want higher risk, but higher returns, you should be looking at investing in a national bank - my dad (who works as an investment manager for the passed 20 years) has recently invested [a lot] in Bank of Ireland bonds, simply because they were paying back 19%, and that the EU has bailed them out, were dead cheap - so if when he decides to sell them (in say 10 years) he can make a nice final profit on them.

I could scrape that together but there's a lot of work involved, with contracts and looking etc and is also risky.

Saame!! I sent him £5,000 and he made me king of nigeria. He sent the crown by UPS, looks like a party hat, but i guess nigeria isn't really a wealthy country...

Wait a minute... that sounded a little CRUDE.

Premium bonds are cool, you get entered into prize draws each month, the more money you have, the more chance you have of winning.

I think i'd want the advantage in my favor to be a bit higher than 50%.

That would be a stupid thing to do.

Put it into an ISA or something. Look around for the best deal though first.
