One of the nominees to become an SEC commissioner expressed concern Tuesday that the agency has not had appropriate input into a Labor Department rule on investment advice.

In a confirmation hearing before the Senate Banking Committee, Hester Peirce said she hasn’t had a chance to read the DOL measure, but is uneasy about the way it was put together.

I have been in the financial services industry for 20 years and our firm provides an education platform that gets clients to “think differently” about their financial picture.  For many years we have communicated to clients the need to diversify their portfolios using alternative asset classes and more specifically, private non-traded investments.  Due diligence on these types of financial vehicles is essential and when I learned about Blue Vault in 2010, our firm immediately began using their material as a tool to build confidence in the minds of our advisors on which alternatives to recommend to clients.  I am impressed with the way Blue Vault continues to add value to their subscribers and I view their publication as a tremendous resource in today’s complex world.
