Mutual funds win while we lose

Post by Eric White »

Amazing. It is truly horrific that investors, as CAPTIVE customers of these products, are not guaranteed some basic protections.

Either free us from captivity and enable real competition or at least give us some basic protection.

That's very frustrating!

Dosen't apply at all.

If you don't like the game, than don't play.

Mutual funds have lots of protections. If a fund company goes bankrupt a mutual fund is segrated and protected from creditors.
