Invest in a house ($1m), maybe an investment property or two (let's say they add up to $1m in total too) a trustworthy car, travel as much as possible, and save the rest (about $6-7m left I should think).

1. Buy house in newtown
2. Set up huge trust fund for nephews which I would be in control of until they're 21
3. Set up a small menagerie
4. Buy a lifetime membership to as many amenities and luxury services as I can, including a VERY comfortable healthcare fund.
5. Travel around the world
6. Study indefinitely and keep learning
7. Put as much as I can away in a high interest account to pay for any other costs I run up for the rest of my life.
8. Ship my mother to Antartica.

I would build a house with a HUGE room and fill it up with awesome books! Then I should spend the remaining days reading those books. Because they should be good books.


edit: Also, I would either build a sushi place next to my house, or hire a japanese chef.... who is also a ninja.

And have a salmon farm out the back.

If you have built castles in the air your work need not be lost; that's where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.

well i would probably get some sound financial advice, but considering my aims with such money it would go someting like this.

1: 4million in high risk/ large returns investments
2. 5 million in low risk, steady long term investments
3. 0.8million as some sort of other investment [help me out ecconomics peoples!] that i can access easily, but with a decent enough return so i can live off the interest.

200 000 taken out for fun stuff like a trip around the world in my uni break, a decent car[nothing extravagent or showoffy, i would be happy with a 50 000 car to be honnest] or a nice place to live [well i might need a bit more than that for the place to live, but i could rent until my living off returns came in for that year]
