The 10 Biggest Money Mistakes

"Paying Too Much in Fees

Fees are the silent killer. As Dividend Growth Investor once tweeted:
If you invested $1,000 in Berkshire Hathaway in 1965, by 2009 your investment would have been worth $4.3 million.

If Buffett had set up Berkshire as a hedge fund, and charged a 2% annual fee plus 20% of any gains, the investor would have been left with only $300,000.

That’s a 10x difference because of fees!"
