    Ethical advisors will ALWAYS place the best interests of their clients ahead of their own interests, regardless of how, or how much, they get compensated.

    Any way you look at it , it is all about the value of advice. Or to put it another way " free advice is worth exactly what it costs"

    @Peter Lantos, I agree that an ethical advisor will put the client's interests first however I have worked in areas of the industry where that is not possible. Many advisors are limited on the products they are able to sell and though they may believe in lower cost alternatives, they are not able to bring them to the table.

    These regulations will cause advisors to be more transparent about their fees thereby giving client's the information and incentive to go out and find those products that provide better value to them.
