The spirit of the DOL fiduciary rule is a good thing, says Amy Webber in this exclusive interview, and “we’re not anti-fiduciary,” she says. While Cambridge Investment Research has fought against some of the proposed rule’s provisions, she now accepts that a new rule will be forthcoming. Beyond acceptance, she talks about why — and how — Cambridge is preparing now for how the rule will affect the IBD and its representatives.

She also discusses how Cambridge is addressing another big issue for BDs and all advisors and their partners: how to encourage and nurture the next generation of advisors.
