Welcome to the Institute for the Fiduciary Standard!
The Institute is a nonprofit formed in 2011 to benefit investors and society through its research, education and advocacy of the fiduciary standard’s importance to investors, our capital markets and economy.
Six key fiduciary duties embody the fundamental elements of an investment fiduciary’s responsibility. Learn more about those duties here.
December 14 – Mercer Bullard, University of Mississippi School of Law professor, has spear-headed investor advocacy in securities regulation for twenty years (and the DOL COI rule over the past five years). Bullard has been a fixture at Congressional hearings. He also serves on the Institute’s Frankel Fiduciary Prize selection committee. In this interview with Think Advisor’s Jane Wollman Rusoff, Bullard speaks on the DOL rule, SEC regulation and Dodd Frank in his familiar and blunt manner and offers an incisive peak into Washington and financial regulation. The interview can be seen here.
