On April 25, your Congressman, House Financial Services Committee Chairman Spencer Bachus (R-AL), introduced the Investment Adviser Oversight Act that would authorize the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to create a Self-Regulatory Organization (SRO) to perform regulatory examinations of investment advisers.
FSI applauds the Chairman’s bill which would close a significant regulatory gap that allows investment advisors to go largely unsupervised while broker-dealers who perform similar services are subject to routine regulatory examinations on a two year cycle. Ultimately, his draft bill will strengthen the marketplace by enhancing investor protection and leveling the playing field for all financial advisors.
Chairman Bachus not only heads the powerful House Financial Services Committee but he is also your Congressman. Please let him know that you support his efforts in protecting consumers by promoting balanced regulatory oversight.
