      @KY Floyd, I meant  the £10k for pocket money after I have bought my properties and set up my investments. It doesn't cover bills eg. Housekeeper, Food,Utilities,Flights etc that's seperate... Oh and my once or twice a year watch purchase :-)

        I don't think I would have a set rate. I would buy a few toys, get a better residence,place to live in, help a few charities, and just try and enjoy life.Hyper

            If I had approximately $100 million, AFTER Tax cash, I would invest completely in dividend paying stocks that had a current average yield of between 1.5% to 3%

            Then I would sit back and enjoy whatever the dividend payouts were because they would increase annually without me ever having to do anything else

            Besides, 1.5% of a $100 million is roughly $125,000 per month

            Of course, it would fluctuate due to different investment payouts, but I think I could live comfortably on that as well as keep a reasonable staff of employees paid (with both a decent wage as well as decent benefits)

              In that case, I'd figure it's more than you could really spend without  getting fairly extravagant. I would suggest that with that much money you should spend a few bucks more and treat yourself to a watche that lasts more than 6 months.

                  You can buy dividend paying stocks and play the lottery without winning a lottery jackpot.
