I don't agree with that. I do think that for folks who do not understand how to manage their risk or for folks who are very risk averse a FRM is the best choice.

It's all about controlling your risk. A 30yr FRM rate and payment stays the same for 30 years. No matter what, you never have to pay more.

I agree.

It's the right product for folks who think like this. It's not a question of wrong or right, the loan that allows one to sleep at night is the right loan product for that individual.
