Securities and Exchange Commission

To the and Exchange Commission,

The mission of the SEC should be to protect all investors, especially retired ones who rely on their retirement savings for their livelihood and future.  The S7-07-18 legislation opens the door for finance professionals to take advantage of investors who are not financially savvy.  Please shut that door and make these professionals accountable for their services. Please ensure that financial institutions do not allow their sales personnel to put the interest of their employer before the interest of their clients.  Thank-you


Mrs. Elizabeth Knoop
