I am an investor and a pension manger for my company retirement funds.

I strongly urge withfrawl of the existing rule.

Time and time again I hav ewatched stockbrokers make poor or one sided recomendations ( more for their benifit) to me and my employeess. We need more transperancy to rein in the abuses and have financial advise be more nuetral.

I can comment more fully if you have a questionair to help collate the comments your are recieving.

Thank You,
