That said, some types of investors would benefit from some handholding:
1. those who are just starting out, need to be educated and don't trust random strangers on the internet - someone to teach how to invest, what to invest in, what not to invest in etc
2. those who tend to let their fear and greed get the better of them - someone to calm people down in times of irrational exuberance and irrational panic
At some point, I will have to start teaching my children about all this.
