We all dream about spending, but what would you invest in?

If I were so fortunate to win at this jackpot level (about 135,000,000 after taxes) my plan looks something like this:

$11,000,000 fun money for houses, cars, yacht etc

$15,000,000 cash or very liquid funds. Should generate approximately $35,000 per month in interest..

$15,000,000 physically held gold and silver (held for safety and possible appreciation)

$15,000,000 index funds (slow steady growth over a long horizon)

$79,000,000 in real estate likely a combination of Single Family Homes and Class "A" Apartment buildings. 800 Class A Apartment units should generate approximately $1,000,000 gross income per month.  I am in the field and good at it so I might invest the income generated per month in class "C" and "D" turn-around, reposition properties.

Not sure if I would finance the apartments or run 100% debt free....Please chime in Windermere Jill!!

    I have a longer horizon, but for me I would start a hedge fund with all of it, except a couple houses in coastal cities and Paris. My focus would be small cap equities and venture capital. I'd also opportunistically look at real estate and hotel opportunities. As a hobby, I would invest in some films as well.

      I would probably start out with tax-free municipal bonds and like Toronto eventually create my own hedge fund.

      I would start my own corporation(s), one of which will be a movie studio (I work in the film industry).

      Obviously set aside some spending money, otherwise I would invest most of it. Anything that brings the best returns I suppose

      If the chances of winning the jackpot are so slim, why play when the jackpot is so small? Your chances never change, but the payoff does.

      If a crystal ball showed you the future of the rest of your life, and in that future you will never win a jackpot, would you still play?

        BuyLow- I definitely wouldn't invest more than half my assets on any one particular investment. The apartment complex should be financed through a structured deal with a minimal cash outlay.

        10% of your net winnings could go toward homes and vehicles but no more.

        10% should be in a charitable trust with family members and close friends being employed in a minor capacity.

        The balance of the principle should be in a variety of different investments (Bonds, stocks, precious metals, homes/rental properties). Your age and goals would dictate how this is allocated.

          I would never finance the apartments. I think its better to run 100% debt free but that's just me but I like your investment choices.

            Maybe some stocks, rare cars and a 7-11 so i have my own lotto machine. Investing is tough these days unless your in a good area where there's plenty of jobs.

                  On a large building like that you would probably have 7-10 full time staff onsite, really could be pretty hands off if you choose to be.

                    99% of todays homes are crap. I have to build my own, MY way.

                    Maybe my own construction company.  100% energy free homes. Reinvent the mobile home market. Build homes that don't blow down in the first storm. Turn the building market on it's ear.
