Thank you for recommending this post to our Best of feature.

BuildMWell, You get my rec for an interesting, and well written post even though I don't necessarily agree with all of your points. I am more of a mutual fund and especially index fund guy.
Your experience with 25 advisors over a number of years was especially telling. Although you indicated that most did not beat the indexes and many didn't make you money you can be assured that the advisors made enough to make up for it. I'm sure you helped finance many advisor vacations and educations for their children.

Bob
