Help! My Wife's Dad Puts Her Money at Risk

Dec 30, 2013

Did you ever want to be a personal-finance advice columnist? Well, here’s your chance.

In our “Readers to the Rescue” department, we publish questions from readers seeking help with sticky financial situations, along with advice from other readers on how to solve those problems. Here’s our latest reader question:

My father-in-law still manages my wife's investments. She is very cautious and conservative. He is reckless, but has been able to make money. What should I do about this situation, if anything?

Got a good answer? Submit it to us in the form below. We’ll publish selected reader advice in an upcoming issue. (Your answer may be edited for length and clarity.)

Please include your contact information so we can get in touch; if we use your advice in the magazine, we'd like to check with you first, and possibly run your picture as well.

Thanks!
