Invest primarily in dividend paying stocks. I currently live in Europe but am something of a nomad so try and diversify internationally as much as possible to reduce regional and currency risks. Have many of the well known multinationals in my portfolio but also increasingly lesser known titles as well. Am very wary of the huge debt levels in Europe and the USA and poor goverment in these regions. I do believe however that well managed, prudent companies will far outlive many of these bloated social states and therefore put my money in these.
