RPI or CPI? The gamble.

Why do people in the finance industry work so hard to confuse us? Yep, I know, it benefits them. Who regulates the regulators though? I would just like some simple straightforward information occasionally. People who make a living out of purposely confusing others really drive me mad. Lawyers are another group "It's not my job to tell you what is right or wrong in law, it is my job to give an opinion and for you to make a decision based on that advice." £500 quid not so well spent.

Sorry, have I missed a post? What has the above to do with RPI and CPI?

Thanks for posting. I too have no idea what this is all about, but was just too embarrassed to ask!

For the first part of the post, everything; the second part was just an additional rant because I was in a paddy!

Perhaps the OP can rephrase the question so we know what the issue is?

Few other folk on JB want to make themselves clear.
