The Money Machine: how the mutual fund industry works - and how to make it work for you

The author brings to life a hugely important industry through lively storytelling, thorough research, and penetrating analysis. Most investors are unaware of the fees they pay to own mutual funds. Few realize that financial planners are remunerated by the fund companies into which they put their clients' money, which means their advice may not be objective. And not many understand that mutual fund companies can thrive even when they deliver mediocre performance. The Money Machine is must reading for every Canadian with an investment account or an RRSP. Written by Daniel Stoffman.
