A conflict of interest happens when a financial advisor receives backdoor payments and kickbacks for directing their clients into investments that produce lower returns over the course of their lifetime. No one should have to worry that the person advising them on their retirement savings is putting their profits ahead of their clients’ interests. That’s why a strong financial conflict of interest rule is long overdue. It’s time to end conflicted advice and help middle-class families protect the financial future they earned.
