Fiduciary360 (fi360), a resource for investment fiduciary education, announced its opposition Monday to elements of a new bill drafted by a GOP House member that would authorize one or more self-regulatory organizations (SROs) to oversee registered investment advisors.

Congressman Spencer Bachus, R-Ala., Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee provides for the possibility of establishing one or more SROs for advisors.
