Quote of the Day

"When you slap a 7%-12% sales commission on any financial product, a hungry sales force is going to find a way to sell it. Nobody wakes up in the morning searching for an annuity contract. They bought one because a salesperson contacted them and sold it. It’s a simple as that."

(Blair DuQuesnay)
