Cutting the cost of pet ownership

Don't get blue over a pricy pet.

If you're buying alternative investments, seek the lowest costs

Put your fund manager under pressure to disclose his expenses.

How many times have you heard someone speak of minimising costs in the investment process? It is sexier to discuss instead the wonderful returns from investing in residential property in Hong Kong and the United States, or gold, or a host of other areas. Yet efficient investing through tight cost management is one of the keys to success.
