On April 18, the SEC proposed a comprehensive rule set governing the fiduciary duty and standard of conduct applicable to broker-dealers and advisers that provide investment advice to retail investors.  The proposed rules would require BD/IAs to summarize their relationship to investors; establish a BD best interest standard of conduct when recommending securities transactions; restrict the use of the term "adviser" or "advisor" by broker-dealers in specified circumstances; and require advisers to adhere to a new SEC standard of conduct interpretation.

  • Provide a comprehensive overview of the proposed rules as they apply to broker-dealers and investment advisers
