ABSTRACT
The article focuses on Warren Buffett, the second-richest man in the world, and his views on consultants and investor relations. Buffett's letter this year to Berkshire Hathaway shareholders suggested that fees for financial planners and investment advisors reduce their returns. He used an allegory to illustrate his point by featuring characters such as "fast talking" brokers and various "Helpers" in the financial services industry. Buffett says that fees can consumer 20% of investors' earnings.
