Buffett Rule, Tax Reform Law, Greek Debt Crisis, Health Care Plan, Cap and Trade, Dodd-Frank (2012) February 21, 2012 The Greek government-debt crisis is one of a number of current European sovereign-debt crises. Beginning in late 2009, fears of a sovereign debt crisis developed among investors concerning Greece’s ability to meet its debt obligations due to strong increase in government debt levels.[1][2][3] This led to a crisis of confidence, indicated by a widening of bond yield spreads and the cost of risk insurance on credit default swaps compared to the other countries in the eurozone, most importantly Germany.[4][5] The downgrading of Greek government debt to junk bond status in April 2010 created alarm in financial markets. On 2 May 2010, the eurozone countries and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) agreed on a €110 billion bailout loan for Greece, conditional on the implementation of austerity measures. In October 2011, Eurozone leaders agreed to offer a second €130 billion bailout loan for Greece, conditional not only the implementation of another austerity package, but also that all private creditors holding Greek government bonds should sign a deal accepting a 53.5% facevalue loss. This proposed restructure of all Greek public debt held by private creditors, which constituted a 58% share of the total Greek public debt, would according to the bailout plan reduce the overall public debt burden with roughly €110 billion. A debt relief equal to a lowering of the debt-to-GDP ratio from a forecasted 198% in 2012 down to roughly 160% in 2012

Falls Church, VA (PRWEB) January 20, 2012

Saturday, Jan. 21, marks the one year anniversary of a Securities and Exchange Commission staff report to Congress recommending a fiduciary duty for broker-dealers and their registered reps. The National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors has been involved from the beginning in the fiduciary issue debate and remains committed to working with the SEC to ensure that the final fiduciary rule does not hurt the ability of middle-market investors to receive advice and services.

When the fiduciary proposal arose during the drafting of the Dodd-Frank bill, NAIFA strongly advocated that any SEC fiduciary rule should not threaten the ability of advisors to receive commissions or sell proprietary products. Fortunately, safe harbors in the final Dodd-Frank law preserve these aspects of the business model that currently allows advisors to assist in the financial well-being of 75 million American families.

The original SEC study was completed within a congressionally imposed timeframe. SEC Commissioner Troy Paredes and then-Commissioner Kathleen Casey immediately issued a dissenting statement raising concerns about the study. Several members of Congress have since voiced similar concerns. Fortunately, the SEC has decided to give the issue more study and conduct a robust cost-benefit analysis before proposing a rule.

An SEC fiduciary rule has the potential to bring so many unintended consequences it shouldnt be rushed into, said NAIFA President Robert Miller. Were pleased that the SEC is apparently working to address some of the unanswered questions left by the original study.

One of NAIFAs leading concerns is that a poorly drafted rule could increase compliance and litigation costs for advisors, which in turn would force higher costs for their base of middle-market clients. Modest investors could be left to their own devices, without access to affordable advice.

Our biggest worry is that a rule designed to help consumers could wind up doing a lot of harm if it makes the cost of doing business untenable for advisors working with Main Street investors and everyday people saving for retirement, said Mr. Miller. NAIFA is encouraged by recent signals that the SEC is taking a deliberate approach and performing a detailed cost-benefit analysis on the proposed fiduciary rule. Weve seen signs that the commissioners have begun to understand the important role NAIFA members play in protecting the financial well-being of millions of Americans.

The SEC is expected to issue a request for public comment to assist in the cost-benefit analysis and NAIFA officials have expressed a willingness to help.

At times during this debate, NAIFA has been painted in very broad strokes by people implying were opposed to any and all regulation, Mr. Miller added. That couldnt be further from the truth. We favor intelligent regulation that serves a definite consumer-protection purpose and that preserves the ability of American families to obtain affordable financial services and advice.
