To the and Exchange Commission,

Financial advisers should be held accountable for their actions and it
is true that it is hard to prove that they have done something wrong
with their financial advise after the fact but they have a fiduciary
responsibility and those should be spelled out in the law with stiff
penalties if convicted for violating them.


Mr. David Bates
