New Evidence of Fiduciary Rules Harm, Chamber Report Says

Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Jay Clayton said Thursday that the agency is seeking comment on a laundry list of issues to inform “possible future actions” by the agency on a fiduciary duty rulemaking.

Noting Labor Secretary R. Alexander Acosta’s recent announcement that Labor’s June 9 compliance date will move forward, Clayton said that the rule “may have significant effects on retail investors and entities regulated by the SEC,” as well as “broader effects on our capital markets. Many of these matters fall within the SEC’s mission of protecting investors; maintaining fair, orderly, and efficient markets; and facilitating capital formation.”

Obamas DOL underestimated the negative effects of the rule, says Chamber of Commerce; CFAs Roper, though, blasts report.
