I have an inheritance to invest of £150,000. I am not paying into a pension at the moment but have £125,000 in my pension pot, and have fairly substantial money in Stocks and Shares ISAs. Should I put more into stocks and shares over a 10 year period, add to my pension funds, or invest in bricks and mortar with no mortgage?

If I allow the transfer of my Baillie Gifford Scottish Mortgage Trust ISA, will it just go into a bigger Hargreaves Lansdown ISA pot? Meaning that when Hargreaves Lansdown as a whole falls, my investment is worth less?

I am looking at consolidating my different pension pots. My main concern is - will I lose out by transferring my Civil Service pension to a new place? By the way, I am loving Boring Money! I’m really keen to start taking control of my finances and it’s proving so helpful... not making me feel like a clown for not understanding all the financial faffery! Thanks!

In 1988 I opted out of SERPS and proceeded to set up a With-Profits Personal Pension Plan with Equitable Life. Fast forward to now and I've recently received a 'proposal' from Eq Life. I don't really understand whether this is a proposal I should give my approval to as I don't understand whether I will potentially gain or lose from the changes stated.
