Subject: File No. S7-25-99
From: Sanford Z. K. Hampton

July 24, 2004

I am writing to urge your insistence that anybody who incidentally or not gives advice about securities be covered by The Advisors Act. Although I am most satisfied with my own brokerage firm (UBS) and the integrity of my own Financial Planners/Brokers within that firm, it seems to me that given the climate of the present times the SEC would want to insist on the accountability and integrity of all who come under your oversight.
