To the and Exchange Commission,

Transparency to investors from advisors is essential.  Hard working people deserve to know all the costs which will be deducted from their investments and earnings.  All advisors must be bound by the fiduciary standards.  Our futures depend on it.

I have been my own advisor ever since I started investing,  I knew the pitfalls of having an advisor who was first and foremost out for his/her own enrichment.  We, the People, shouldn't have to do that any more!

I'm counting on you to make a stronger rule that closes the loophole.
Americans who've worked hard to save for retirement deserve peace of mind about their financial security.


Mrs. Rebecca Swanson
