As a fee-only adviser who acts as a fiduciary in all aspects of client relationships, I applaud the SEC for Regulation Best Interest. Advice to retail customers should always put their financial interests ahead of the adviser's. It's their money. Most retail customers almost certainly believe this rule is already in place, but it definitely has not been in the past. Thank you.
