As the result of President Obama signing into law the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the "Dodd-Frank Act") on July 21, 2010, the federal government passed legislation that will affect how financial advisory firms like Ehlers provide advisory services.
The legislation requires a fiduciary responsibility to you by Ehlers – which is how we have always viewed our relationship, which is to act on your behalf with a duty of loyality and a duty of care. The links below direct you to the latest Dodd-Frank Act news to help keep you informed.
