Kristina Fausti of Fi360 says that Senator Herb Kohl's amendment calling for a new board to oversee all advice givers, "would create gaps by pulling some investment advisors under the umbrella of a financial planning oversight board while leaving others out. It would also keep current gaps in place with regard to brokers because not all brokers who provide advice will be regulated as financial planning professionals." Also, Fausti says, the proposed amendment "would indirectly bring persons such as CPAs under SEC regulation, creating a gap in the SEC's knowledge and expertise, which is solely focused on investment advice as it relates to securities."
