The Captain brought in several financial planners and stock brokers and had them make their pitch. Then he dissected what they were trying to sell us and how much we'd be screwed. Very entertaining and quite an eye opener -- even for an 18-year-old Freshman.

Just so I understand, you were presented with a handful of planners not recommended to or selected by you and a biased teacher pointed out flaws in their products. Based on this, you've determined all planners are crocks that offer no value to an investor.

Got it. Thanks for your opinion.

What are your thoughts on trusts?
