IF you have a few bob to invest or put on deposit and are being encouraged by your bank manager or financial adviser to put it into a tracker bond or some such account, ask them this simple question: "Where would you advise your mother to invest her money?"
The truth is that most of them would whisper to their mammies that An Post's savings bonds or certificates are an absolute no-brainer.
With An Post bonds, you get 3.23pc a year or 10pc over the three-year period of the bond. And that is tax-free.
