SEC Poised to Approve Reg BI on June 5

The Securities and Exchange Commission is scheduled to vote next week on its Regulation Best Interest.  NAIFA met multiple times with SEC Chairman Jay Clayton and with each of the Commissioners stressing the importance of the rule being neutral with respect to support for or favoring a particular business model or compensation structure.  NAIFA also discussed concerns about provisions in the proposed regulation that would impose restrictive limits on who can use the term "advisor/adviser," and cautioned the SEC officials that if required disclosures to clients are too lengthy or complex, then consumers would simply not read them.

NAIFA plans to continue its regular visits with the SEC’s commissioners and staff to ensure NAIFA members’ recommendations are part of the implementation process.
