Buffett on hiring Consultants

“Supposedly sophisticated people, generally richer people, hire consultants, and no consultant in the world is going to tell you ‘just buy an S&P index fund and sit for the next 50 years.’ "

Warren Buffett’s Epic Rant Against Wall Street - MoneyBeat - WSJ

Looks like most of us here are doing something right.

I can neither confirm nor deny your suspicions... until you hire me as a consultant of course.

Not sure if this was Warren Buffett, but it sure sounds like him:

Wall Street is the only place that people ride to in a Rolls Royce to get advice from those who take the subway.
