Plus there is (an inevitable) dearth of good managers out there. This means we have to hold investments and not investment products unless for special purposes. I am burning @1.5% per annum, luckily my wife has a modest income otherwise we would be burning too quickly.

The world has changed and the sooner people realize that, the better.

Couldn’t agree more about investment expenses.

We now withdraw about 2% annually. Can still cover all the bases. You know something James? We’ve found we’re happier not buying a lot of “stuff” we don’t need anyway.
