To Whom This May Concern:

I have been a financial planner for over 30 years and have a client base of well over 1000 clients. I hold a Series 6, series 63 and series 26 license. Many of my cliets have been with me for at least 20 years. My clients have full trust in my ability to confidently advise them by matching their risk tolerance with the appropriate mutual funds and separate accounts of variable annuities. I take my fiduciary responsibilities very seriously. My greatest satisfaction comes from knowing that I have done the proper things for my clients to help them manage risks and grow their assets.

The financial services industry is a very regulated one. I am requestiong that you do NOT add any more regulations to our fiduciary responsibilities.

Thanks you.
