There are three important lessons:

1 Do not be afraid to shop around. Ask as many people as you want to about the options available to you, and do not worry about asking simple questions. If you have any doubts about your advisers, consult some of the trade associations and institutions' listed at the end of the website.

2 Get as much information as you can. By writing, telephoning or visiting, find out all you can about the investment or savings scheme you favour. Read the national press, particularly the Telegraph which specialises in this field every day of the week, but concentrates on family and personal finance on Saturdays and Sundays. And write to the press if you have further queries.

3 Remember that whoever's advice you take, the decision is ultimately yours. If things go wrong, you only have yourself to blame - and if they go right, you can take pride in your wisdom.
