As the advisory industry has watched Dodd-Frank's implementation play out over the past year, the largest association of financial planners and
the industry's top certification body are warning advisors to continue to pay close attention to the law's progress, as the provisions that most
affect them will begin taking shape during the second year of the reform law's life….
For advisors, the real issues are how the SEC creates a fiduciary duty for brokers, harmonization of advisor and broker rules, as well as how the
SEC, and, more importantly, Congress itself moves forward on the specifics of advisor oversight—which could come in the form of a self-regulatory
organization (SRO) for advisors, Barry (left) says.
