Ladies and Gentlemen,

Requiring an independent audit of my firm by a CPA each year and forcing me to pay for it would put me out of business. To fairly serve my clients I keep my profit margins so thin that you would literally be removing the food from my table. Or is that your real intent; to eliminate competition from the unbiased, fee-only advisors such as myself who are beginning to threaten the lucrative profits of high-dollar, commission-sales broker/dealers?

Respectfully,

Ronald Scott Colson, CFP, MBA, President
