I write today with the due respect toward your intentions:
U.S. SEC SAYS CREATING INVESTOR ADVISORY COMMITTEE "TO GIVE INVESTORS A GREATER VOICE" IN AGENCY'S WORK Wednesday, June 03, 2009 10:14:03 AM (GMT-07:00)
NEW SEC ADVISORY COMMITTEE MEMBERS INCLUDE REPRESENTATIVES OF AFL-CIO, COUNCIL OF INSTITUTIONAL INVESTORS, CHARLES SCHWAB, BARCLAYS Wednesday, June 03, 2009 10:15:48 AM (GMT-07:00) Provided by: Reuters News
But, as an individual investor, I do not feel these institutions are advocates for me. Like most Americans, I am not a union member, and the interests of the other three would seem to be those of the securities industry, which are often at odds with the interests and protection of the individual investor.
Would you please consider adding to the Investor Advisory Committee at least one true, strong advocate for the individual investor? Thank you.
