    Will fiduciary duty rules be implemented?

    I heard that the fiduciary standard for retirement account investors may not happen. This seems crazy to me. Unbelievable how some people want to allow Wall Street to just keep on duping us and hiding their big fees.

    You heard correctly. And it does seem like a shame.

    Maybe there is some hope the proposed regs are being reexamined to see if they can be instituted in a way that is simpler to implement.

    Just want to let people know that there are firms out there that are self-adopting these rules, where they will agree to provide you the best suitable advice, etc. So rule or no rule, changes will be coming.

    Funds are also lowering fees and increasing transparency.

    So if these trends continue, we get all the wins of the rule, without all the paperwork and legal overhangs.

    Out of all this, expect everyone to be charged a flat percentage to handle their retirement accounts. Where previously you could low cost index without those fees. So not a totally win.

    w/drawing the rule may end up really working out, as now there is a lot of pressure for all advice to be with a suitable & best interest of the client standard, regardless if retirement or regular accts.

    Here's what I don't like about the fiduciary duty rules: it is an excuse to jack up fees.

    I'm already invested in cheap Vanguard ETFs. I rarely buy or sell. Just occasional new deposits and rebalances. Overall cost was very low.

    Now they want to charge me a 2% fee to hold the funds. Because they are now going to recommend I buy the exact same things I'm already buying.

    Time to move my account elsewhere.

    Does anyone really think the these rules would be a boon to the trial lawyers?
