This money will be subjected to a fee throughout the 25 years, and this is how the fund company pays the up-front commission to the advisor.

These plans are extremely expensive, 95% of the “advisors” have sold cars as a previous job, and if they claim to be tax-free you are being lied to. Save yourself 7% a year and buy a couple of indexed ETF’s and call it a day.
