I don't think this is really new. Financial advisers have always targeted their sales pitches at the unhappy investor. Give me a try. I can do better.

Sadly, low interest rates squeeze the fixed income investor, and they are reluctant to invest in stocks. So will they go for the high risk high yield investment or the annuity with the attractive no loss guarantee?

Sheep to be shorn.

Let's hope the honest advisers do well. Conservative seniors who are afraid of equities have some real problems.

We have just been through this discussion on the Dividend Growth board. The concerns are real.
