SEC Chairman Promoting Consideration of Uniform Fiduciary Rule

Sunday, June 4, 2017

The SEC is seeking public opinion regarding the standard of care, conflicts of interest, regulation, disclosures, technologies, and investor confusion in relation to the standard of conduct applicable to retail advisers and broker-dealers. Mr. Clayton asks, “If the Commission were to proceed with a disclosure-based approach to potential regulatory action, what should that be? If the Commission were to proceed with a standards-of-conduct-based approach to potential regulatory action, what should that be? Should the standards for investment advisers and broker-dealers be the same or different? Why? For purposes of Commission action in this area, if any, how should “investment advice” be defined? Should certain activities be expressly excluded from the definition of “investment advice”?” Mr. Clayton welcomes coordination with the Department of Labor as it implements and re-considers the Fiduciary Rule.
