What do you pay for your investments and investment advice? Do you know the most common answer I hear when I ask this question? You guessed it. “I don’t know." You should know how much you pay.
I believe the financial industry is to be blamed for consumers not knowing what they really pay. Our industry may have been guilty of not making all the charges and fees clear, which may have resulted in many people thinking they don’t pay anything at all! Shame on us but shame on those that think they are really getting something for free.
What expenses should you know and ask about when investing?
If you do not know what you really pay, I suggest asking your adviser. Armed with the right information you can make good decisions regarding your portfolio.
