To the and Exchange Commission,

***[ As a senior already in retirement, I am well aware of the need for a trusted advisor. I am not a savvy investor so the advise given is even more important. I am sure I am not alone in this worrisome state'
With the currant law there is too much chance that the best interest of the investor is not the real reason for the advice given and this is not right. There are too many fees in many funds so the amount invested dwindles too quickly. Please close the loophole that permits this shameful state of affairs to exist and make advisors more accountable to their clients.


Mrs. Barbara Martin
