Rep. Jeb Hensarling’s Financial Choice Act, which seeks to gut the Dodd-Frank Act and is set for release by the end of April, still requires that if the Labor Department promulgates a fiduciary rule, “it must be substantially similar” to one issued by the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Hensarling announced Tuesday his plan to reintroduce his Choice Act in a matter of weeks, stating in a comment provided by a spokesperson that he looks forward to “working with the president and his administration to eliminate Dodd-Frank and replace it” with the Choice Act 2.0.
On March 15, Hensarling said reintroduction of the bill would come in a matter of weeks.
I have been using Blue Vault Partners for the past five years. I have found them to be a valuable, unbiased resource when it comes to evaluating and comparing non-traded REITs. The reports help me analyze which sponsors are doing a responsible job of managing their offerings. This allows me to limit my REIT recommendations to only the most competitive products, and then track those REITs throughout their life cycle.
