President Urges New Rules to Help Safeguard Retirement Savings

President Obama recently called on the U.S. Department of Labor to impose new rules targeting abusive fees and pricing schemes imposed by some financial advisory practitioners. The regulations would require individuals who provide financial advice relative to retirement plans and IRAs to put clients’ interests first — above advisors’ profit-making incentives.

Currently, most advisors are not legally required to have fiduciary responsibility to their clients. As a result, American investors can be subjected to high hidden fees, pyramid schemes, and backdoor payments that, according the President’s Feb. 28 weekly address to the nation, cost American investors an estimated $17 billion dollars per year.

Opposition to such practices is why I founded OnCenter Financial Advisors, and it’s the reason that the CFA Institute, the world’s largest associate of investment professionals, supports the proposed new regulations. As the President noted, however, special-interest groups are likely to put up a fierce fight.
