And remember, financial planners get paid a commission off of the amount of money they invest or have in their portfolio. at just 1 million the average finacial planner gets paid 40000 dollars upfront then gets a fee on a monthly basis for having that money in their portfolio.
You are talking ALOT of money for the planner.
If your athlete says he want to buy something, you tell him its a bad idea, and he only has to say that another investor accross town told him it was a good idea, then every single planner out there would cave.
Thanks for the post. I'm often suspicious of "financial experts".
If AI had $10,000,000 to invest his "planner" would make $400,000 regardless if his investments went up or down that year. That's brutal. It's easy to see this "I'm a financial leech" bullshit in the huge MERs for Canadian mutual funds.
