Which of These Two Visions of the Future of Financial Advice Will Become Reality?
Ron A. Rhoades, JD, CFPLink to more items from this source
Sept. 11, 2015
"It's 2025. Nearly a decade has passed after the 75th Anniversary of the Investment Advisers Act and the [DOL's] enactment of its 'Conflict of Interest' rule.... Under the new DOL and SEC standards, conflicts of interest were required to be avoided wherever possible. This recognized that disclosures -- while important -- were largely ineffective consumer protections ... Reversing a series of ill-advised decisions and rulemaking by lack of enforcement, the SEC prohibited waivers and disclaimers of core fiduciary duties, a practice often seen in 2015 by dually registered RIAs ... FINRA, which had publicly opposed DOL's imposition of fiduciary standards in mid-2015, and in so doing revealed its true nature as an instrument of Wall Street's sales culture, had its jurisdiction over market conduct activities removed by an Act of Congress."
