I happened to read somewhere about this Entertainment Opportunities Fund and when you look at the performance of the fund you cannot help but question as to who’s actually having the entertainment! If you’ve invested your hard-earned money in this fund I’m pretty sure that you haven’t been entertained!

In general, the more esoteric the name of a mutual fund or insurance scheme is, the faster you should run away from it — in the opposite direction.

Perhaps the disclaimer in this case ought to be modified from “past performance may or may not be sustained in future” to “past entertainment may or may not be sustained in future”.

What say?

And coming up on Wednesday, the book giveaway contest for July. Stay tuned.
