Few issues remain more controversial these days than whether the Securities and Exchange Commission should impose a fiduciary standard on all advice givers. But for those who have already embraced putting their clients first, putting a fiduciary standard into action can be less than simple. Again this year, fi360 is sponsoring, and AdvisorOne is supporting, a competition in which thought leaders on the fiduciary standard are invited to submit written papers to inform the community’s discussion on the many facets of fiduciary in practice.
The deadline for submission is March 12, 2012; you can learn more here.
The author of the winning paper will receive a cash prize of $1,000 and will be honored at fi360’s annual conference, which will be held this year in Chicago from April 25-27. In addition, the winning paper and others submitted will be considered for publication on AdvisorOne, whose editors will be participating in the judging of the submitted papers along with fi360 and its CEO, Blaine Aikin (left).
