To the and Exchange Commission,

My brother lives entirely on his investments.  He relies on his
financial advisor to make recommendations that will help my brother,
not the advisor.  Others who receive fixed incomes such as Social
Security need their investments to help them pay their bills.

I urge you to close the loophole that allows financial advisors to
steer their clients to things that aren't necessarily in the clients'
best interests.

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.
