Although there's nothing on the calendar yet, Advisor One has learned that a House subcommittee is talking about the SRO in two weeks.


We'll be watching to see who the people and groups invited to provide testimony are. Expect at least FINRA to show up to pitch the case that self-regulation -- under the FINRA umbrella or otherwise -- for advisors won't be so bad.
