I have been working in the financial service industry for over 25 years with the retail clients, and they do not see any difference between Investment advisors, Insurance agents, or broker/dealers. The consumer see no difference in the person giving advise or selling a product, and for that reason they should have to follow the same rules, as they are often selling the products or at least that is the feeling of the consumer.
