The Retirement Gamble

Ten trillion dollars in Americans’ retirement savings are invested in large and small accounts managed by banks, brokerages, mutual funds and insurance companies.But whether your IRA or 401K will assure a safe retirement is largely a gamble. Building off reporting from the groundbreaking special “Money, Power and Wall Street,” FRONTLINE raises troubling questions about how America’s financial institutions protect our savings. “The Retirement Gamble” reveals how fees, self-dealing and kickbacks bring great profits to Wall Street while imperiling the prospects of a secure future for individuals. The film questions who has the consumer’s best interests in mind, and whether there is a better way to manage our retirements.
