Warranted or not, the investment industry, and those who work within it, may have a reputation for being dishonest and self-serving. It is unfortunate that the selfish behavior and callous practices of few, can tarnish the industry, as a whole.

How are the regulators influencing change in the industry?
Is it a good thing for me?
