SEC Chairman Jay Clayton

Had the honor of meeting with SEC Chairman Jay Clayton at U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission today. He was a very sharp guy that wants more clarity and simplicity for the average investor. While I was advocating for the fiduciary rule and also clarifying titles between financial advisors and salespeople, it’s a start. We have a representative with Chairman Clayton that does care about the average investor and also wants to see more diversity on advisory boards.

The main responsibility of the chairman is to carry out the mandate of the Fed, which is to promote the goals of maximum employment, stable prices, and moderate long-term interest rates.
