Most who sell financial products, do so to make a living. A law that required them to sell the most cost effective product to every client would be devastating. They reserve the right to extract extra income from those who can afford it.

A key question might be where does this financial salesman invest his own funds. Probably not in the most costly vehicle he can find.
