Think of fees like termites

Posted by Robin Powell on August 3, 2016

I’ve always liked John Oliver, but I’m now an even bigger fan of this Birmingham-boy-made-good after a hilarious takedown of the financial services sector on American television.

It first aired in the US eight weeks ago. Frustratingly, it has only just been made available to YouTube viewers in the UK.

Go on, treat yourself to the full 20 minutes. It’s packed with great one-liners, including this one on fund fees:

“Think of fees like termites. They’re tiny, barely noticeable, and they can eat away your f—ing future.”
