I believe its critical that all advice providers put the interests of their client's ahead of their own. We owe it to our clients as their trusted advisors and will do much to advance the integrity and honor of the profession of advice. I believe that by dispelling the differences and making it one standard will cut down on the confusion that many clients feel for our profession.
