UNLOCK THE POWER OF THE VAULT

DOL, SEC fiduciary rules may diverge, Mary Jo White tells lawmakers

March 23, 2016

BY MARK SCHOEFF JR. | | UPDATED

Securities and Exchange Commission Chairwoman Mary Jo White told lawmakers Tuesday that if the agency proposes a rule to raise investment advice standards, it may not mesh perfectly with a separate Labor Department rule that will soon be finalized.

Republican lawmakers at a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing on the SEC budget expressed concerns about the DOL fiduciary rule and how it would operate with a similar SEC rule, if the agency acts on the authority provided by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act to promulgate such a regulation.

Rep. Mark Amodei, R-Nev., asserted that there would be confusion, as financial advisers try to comply with one rule from DOL and one from the SEC.

I have been using Blue Vault Partners for the past five years.  I have found them to be a valuable, unbiased resource when it comes to evaluating and comparing non-traded REITs.  The reports help me analyze which sponsors are doing a responsible job of managing their offerings.  This allows me to limit my REIT recommendations to only the most competitive products, and then track those REITs throughout their life cycle.
