To the and Exchange Commission,

Financial advisors should be held accountable for the advice they give
their clients. They should not be allowed to steer their clients into
investments that pad their investment advisors pockets at the expense
and unacceptable risks to their clients.

As a retired person, I need people in the investment business to
represent my best interests, ahead of their personal gains and their
compensation should be limited to a small portion of my actual gains,
when they are working for me and all their clients. If by their
"expert" advice, I lose money, they should not be compensated
at my expense!

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.


Mr. Howard Hazelwood
