It sounds like a silly question – but the shocking truth is that hundreds of thousands of people will do just that over their lifetime.  Could you be among them?

Consider this – an investor who saves just $1,000/month from age 25 to 70 – stops – then draws income for 15 years, will have paid $1,088,139 in fees and commissions – and the meter is still running.

The assumptions that go into that math aren’t trumped up to make a point.  Our investor earns 8%/year, and pays fees and commissions at 1% of their account value each year.

Your number may be more – it may be less.  But it’s a lot more when we look at it over a lifetime, that the small 1% that was presented to you.  What’s worse, most people cannot tell whether or not they got any measurable value for the advice they bought.

Whether your number is $1,000,000 – or $100,000 – it’s a lot of money – and it’s money you can’t spend or pass on.  It’s the Wall Street way – and it explains why those in the Wall Street world seem to live so well.

But the only other option is to do-it-yourself.  Even that doesn’t take the number to zero – it just reduces it substantially.

Here’s another idea.  What if those fees – whether $100,000 or $1,000,000 – were completely refundable to your estate?  Would that make a difference?  We can show you a place to grow and protect your money – and all the fees that are charged over the course of your lifetime, are completely, 100% refundable.  Post a comment to learn more.
