Martin,

A return of 8% per year over the past decade would be decent for managed money. If that isn't what they achieved for you, then hire the most expensive lawyer you can find and sue them. But keep this in mind. If the judge has any common sense, the suit will be thrown out of court as "frivolous" for the obvious reason that you exercised not the least bit of due-diligence and that you are as negligently culpable as they are.

In other words, be glad you got your money back and write the opportunity losses off as a cheap lesson.
