Employee fees can take a big bite out of your and your employees' retirement savings. Many small and
mid-size companies pay 2% or more in employee expenses.
The graph below shows that with only 1% fees, John has over $242K more savings than Alan after 40 years.*

*The graph above shows a hypothetical situation of two investors, John and Alan. Both have $50,000 in
a 401(k) plan and never contribute to it again. They are fortunate to both achieve 8% fixed returns
each year. However, Alan's funds have an average of 2% in fees and John's only 1%. As you can see, the
effect of the higher costs compounds and becomes profound over time. John has $98K more in 30 years
and a whopping $242K more in 40 years! This hypothetical presentation is based on a fixed annual 8%
return with no distributions or tax considerations, and does not imply future returns.
