In the mid 2000s I chose to place my retirement investments with George Hiller Companies. Over the course of 13 years the firm took more than $4,000 in management fees and produced a net loss all the while touting Christian principles, famous name dropping and using the "Rule of 72" to encourage more investment, which we did. At the end of 13 years we accrued a net loss on our investment after riding both the crisis of 2008 and the rise back in 2010 and few years thereafter. I can honestly say choosing them to manage my investments has been the absolute, without-question worst financial decision I have ever made. Fortunately, I discovered the poor performance of my previously trusting relationship when I asked to see a performance report over the life of my account. I wanted to compare their results with the results of an online company that automatically managed a portion of my money for a fraction of the costs George Hiller Companies charged. The report was delivered with little detail and when I asked for an explanation of the shockingly negative numbers I was told that their attention was given to their largest accounts at my detriment and I saw my accounts were abruptly delinked from their firm without me instructing them to do so. For several months I asked for an explanation of what happened as I felt heavy guilt to my spouse and children for the gross mistake I had made in choosing George Hiller Companies my emails were not returned. When I was expecting to see compounding results somewhere close to the S&P index I discovered I had lost tens of thousands of dollars by choosing the George Hiller Company. I suppose their concern for me dried up correspondingly to their perceived opportunity to get more of my money. It is an absolute shame that money could be managed so poorly, especially from a firm that uses religion to sale their services. Trust your money elsewhere.
