I've said it before, IF only all companies selling mutual funds would have such principles! A company and visionary founded on the principle that investing should be on behalf of the investor. Interesting principle, but only one mutual fund company willing to do it in reality. What can I say, I'm a Vanguard and John Bogle fan!
