Experts are on average wrong, if the were right 60% of the time they would be very rich & would not need a day job being paid as an expert.

A chimp throwing darts at the Financial Times beats most fund managers with a portfolio selection.
Altruism and excellence are truly lost on you, aren't they? And fund managers are little better than punters in your local bookies. Many of the same principles apply.

There are wonderful people in this world who strive and dedicate themselves to solve the problems of life. The team members of the Human Genome Research Project ignored the vast wads of cash being offered to them and published their findings free online for the benefit of all mankind. People like that have my unending admiration and respect, not money grabbing weasels. There are no pockets in shrouds.
