New Legislation For FAs and Here Come the Lobbyists

I had heard that Washington was considering this a few months ago, but now it looks like more of a reality.

The article has a link to a TV ad which shows a couple, worried about their financial future, lamenting the fact that new legislation would prevent them from seeing their financial advisor. I agree with the author that they would be better off.

The is sponsored by "Americans to Protect Family Security".

Sounds like Anne may see a drop in her income from these new regulations if the clients' interest must come first.

From the article, "Labor Secretary Thomas Perez says that conflicts of interest in the retirement security industry cost IRA investors $17 billion a year."

Ouch, that's going to leave a mark.
