Securities and Exchange Commission,
As an economist who teaches financial economics, I understand how complex and confusing the rules of investment can be. It is essential that the American people continue to be protected from unethical actors in financial markets via the continuation of the fiduciary rule. I strongly urge you to retain it. Thank you.
