It's not 1974 and there's this internet thing. EDJ was beneficial (perhaps), prior to modern Funds/Brokerages.

That's all in the past for them and their kin. Read a little and save a lot!

Don't take that as criticism as I've know many people with lots of years in financial services positions that just don't understand what these fees can do for their returns . You can help yourself a lot in this regard.

Think "cash flow". Are you staying in the house at retirement? Look at the bills for electricity, water, sewage, etc… What steps can you take to lower your outgo of cash?
