Campaign Spokesperson, Jane Bryant Quinn
Jane Bryant Quinn is an American financial journalist. She is one of the nation’s leading commentators on personal finance.
This campaign believes that everyone who appears to the public to be a financial adviser should be required to behave like one. That means adopting a universal Fiduciary Standard. Fiduciaries are required to put the best interest of their customers first. No hidden fees. No secret conflicts of interest. No inflated claims for what a financial product can achieve. No fudging on what “best interest” means.

Vanguard Founder John C. Bogle
Institute for the Fiduciary Standard Advisor
May 24 Keynote Address launching Campaign for Investors
Many of you in this audience today, can take pride in being, dare I say, in the vanguard of this movement, that today begins “The Campaign for Investors” of the Institute for the Fiduciary Standard. It will lead to greater financial freedom for America’s citizen/investors, and will serve, in the words of the Investment Company Act of 1940, “the national public interest” as well. So fight on! It’s worth it! “Stay the Course!” “Press on Regardless!” We are on the right side of history.
Luis A. Aguilar
SEC Commissioner, 2008-2015
Investors should always receive advice that is in their best interest. The Campaign for Investors will close the investor awareness gap of different regulations and educate investors on what to expect from really good fiduciary advisors. I wholeheartedly support the Campaign for Investors and urge other leaders in the industry to do so as well.
