Local financial advisor randy neumann, cfp® leads grassroots effort on capitol hill

Speaks with Elected Officials about Preserving Americans’ Access to Affordable, Unbiased Financial Advice & Protecting Investor

WEALTH MANAGEMENT, recently helped lead a grassroots effort on Capitol Hill with the goal of preserving Americans’ access to affordable, unbiased financial advice and protecting consumers. Randy Neumann met with members of Congress and their staffs as part of the Financial Services Institute (FSI) team on May 8, 2012.

“Speaking directly to a member of Congress and letting them know what hard-working Americans are going through every day in invaluable,” said Randy. “This was an incredible opportunity for us to educate them on what Americans need in terms of financial advice today and for retirement and how what Congress and the administration is doing affects their lives. For example, we are very concerned about proposed changes to existing rules of the Department of Labor, which would price out millions of Americans from access to financial advice on their IRAs. Another issue is the regulatory gap that exists between how some financial advisors are regulated. We asked the members of Congress to support a bill by Chairman Spencer Bachus (R-AL) that will close that gap and protect consumers.”

The independent financial advisor members of FSI serve more than 15 million American households. They are affiliated with independent broker-dealer firms who serve more than 180,000 independent financial advisors registered with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). Members of Congress with whom FSI members met serve on House and Senate committees important to the investment community including the Senate Banking Committee, Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, House Financial Services Committee and House Education and Workforce Committee.
