AAF/AAN National Survey on Financial Adviser Regulation

The American Action Forum and American Action Network commissioned a national survey on the financial adviser regulation issued by the Department of Labor. The national survey was conducted by On Message, Inc. The national survey found that:

  1. Americans oppose the fiduciary regulation (50% to 28%), and are significantly less likely to support the proposed regulation when they hear about the personal impact this would have on middle class savers (73% less likely).
  2. A strong majority (59% to 26%) doesn’t believe it’s the government’s job to decide what’s best for an individual’s personal retirement accounts.
  3. Americans believe the Department of Labor lacks the expertise and relevance of running individual Americans’ IRA’s (69% to 20%).
