Letter Type E:
As an individual investor, I value the ability to choose how I work with my financial advisor, ensuring access to the services and support that specifically meet my needs. This is why I would like to share my support of the Securities and Exchange Commission's (SEC) efforts to develop a best interest standard for financial advisors. Having the option to work with any financial professional I choose, whether dealing with fee-based or commission-based investments, provides me with the flexibility to choose what works for me. I appreciate that under the SEC's proposal, these choices will continue to be mine. The financial future of my family is deeply important, and should be protected. Thank you for your efforts in preserving and maintaining my choice of and access to the investment advice that specifically meets my needs. Sincerely,
