To the and Exchange Commission,

I have managed my own investments for 40 years. As I age, this is a
task I am ready to turn over to a professional. Your proposed changes
would make it impossible for me to really trust that the person
managing my funds is acting in my interest and not their own.

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.


Ms. Leah Shepard
