Morgan Stanley

I moved half of my savings $ 1.3 to MS being managed, and $500k under my control. I am 60 and wish to retire. MS has not done better and they cost me 1%! They had retirement money in mutual funds plus charged 1%. Now the idea is to put approx 50% in bonds to wait for craziness to settle. They STILL want to charge 1% on those funds and are not willing to decrease! Is this standard? I always did my own investing by buying small amounts in multiple mutual funds and ETFs. I created my own mutual fund of mutual funds. But I don’t have time for recovery. What do you suggest?
