To the and Exchange Commission,

Requiring a financial advisor to have their clients' interests as their
first priority is essential to encouraging trust in the financial
systems.  The financial marketplace has become so complex that we have
become very dependent on 'experts' and we need to know that they are
giving us their best, objective advice without worrying that they are
actually just enriching themselves.

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. Michael Martin
