Advisors are Hating the New SEC Rule

(New York)

It is no secret, but new data is out showing just how much advisors don't like the SEC's new best interest rule. While there has been strong pushback about aspects of the rule, including its governance of the use of titles, there hadn't been concrete data about how advisors felt about it. Well, now there is. A new survey from Fidelity shows that two-thirds of advisors say that the rule will either have a negative impact or won't help. Only one third think it will have a positive impact. Interestingly, only 73% were actually aware of the SEC proposals in the first place.

FINSUM : The SEC rule is confusing and not well conceived. And when you combine with the updated DOL rule that is coming out in 2019, the new regulations could turn into a real headache.
