Retirement Plans: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver

Saving for retirement in the U.S. means navigating a potential minefield of high fees and bad advice.

John Oliver recently (hilariously) ripped apart the financial services industry. He explained (in a way that only he could do) that we pay far too much money in investment fees.  Such fees, he says, can kill our retirement.

Mr. Oliver doesn’t know, however, that expats pay fees that are 3-4 times more than the typical American does. 

Enjoy!
