You're probably right in that. There are limits on how much they can charge for 12B1 fees and sales charges. They all belong at the bottom of the ocean with the whale excrement.

I was a Fisher Investments client for a couple of years and it didn't turn out well. They sold me on Ken Fisher's ability to get out before extended down markets and that wasn't the way it played out. In fact, all the way down they wanted more money invested and I thought pressed too hard to find out what non-Fisher managed assets that I owned. They did this under the pretext of wanting to know the overall portfolio asset allocation but it was quickly apparent that they wanted additional assets under their management. I've been on the ride and am not a fan.

Ken needs to talk to OxidizedDreamer - he's apparently got it all figured out: We're OK, no we're not OK...disparity of opinion
