    150k = property

    I wouldn't invest it, I'd just spend it all on whatever I could.

    pour it into my business and high some high end stuff so if i buy the six lots i am looking at for £150,000 (ok five the sixth one is my current love in wrist form a white gold/leather annual calendar complications patek philippe) but allowing for the £135,000 i'd invest i'd make say 60% of price estimates (allowing for a quick trade turnover) i'd actually after 30% deducted for for tax i'd make £26,000 for 2 hours of research, 4 weeks of waiting, 10 minutes on the phone and a 2 hour return train trip and reinvest that in profit in two lots to make a profit of £29,000 after cost ar take out for the same process so id make £150,000 in to a beautiful patek philippe and a profit of £29,000 in a less than three months

    About £60k would purchase a property via my parents Right To Buy. If i were to put off renovation (loft conversion, good quality conservatory, new bathroom and kitchen) then the other £90k would largely go into equities.

    After 10 years my parents would transfer the property ownership to me, i'd not be at the behest of having to sell back to the council and i'd have a property worth £110k+.before any renovation.

    Buy run down property cheaply, renovate it and turn profit from it. I'd put some into savings too.

    i'd put 75% into stocks, 15% into bonds and 10% into a high-interest savings account.

    Of the money that I will invest in stocks, I'd put 35% into large cap blend mutual funds, 25% into mid cap funds, 15% into riskier small cap funds, 15% into emerging markets' companies (maybe Flipkart or some other tech companies) and 10% into something interesting (property funds perhaps). I'd stay away from emerging market bonds for the short term due to the slowdown and excessive borrowing from China.

    If I had more money, I would invest more into properties myself instead of investing in a property fund.
