The Golden Rule to do right by clients has held Nova Scotia advisor Howard Williams in good stead for more than 30 years. But, in general, are advisors doing enough?

    I suspect Howard's income depends on the commissions embedded in the investment products he provides. How many of his $100 PAC clients could afford his services if he can no longer depend on commissions?
    I believe there are many advisors with an attitude similar to Howard. Making regulatory changes without considering the impact on these advisors and consequently their clients is a huge disservice to all Canadians.

    Good points, Harley. The conversation on embedded comp is not over by a longshot.
