To the and Exchange Commission,

As a senior citizen who is trying to survive on social security and my
investments, I need to know that the person who is advising me on where
to  invest is looking out for my interest, not their interest.  Close
this loophole and hold anyone who gives fiancial advise accountable to
investors by ensuring they look out for the investors welfare, not
their own.  I dont mind paying a financial advisor for their time and
their knowledge.   I just want you to insure that they are not double
dealing on my investments.

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. Mark Slevin
