For over a decade, Congress and regulators at the federal and state levels have been working to formulate appropriate standards of conduct for financial services industry professionals. IRI and its members believe that financial professionals should be required to act in their clients' best interest, and IRI has been among the leaders of the financial services industry's efforts to advocate for adoption of a clear, consistent, and workable best interest standard that provides meaningful and effective consumer protections - without depriving Americans of access to valuable financial products and services.

IRI’s Standard of Conduct Working Group guides our work on all federal and state standard of conduct activity (legislative, regulatory, and judicial). To learn more about IRI’s efforts and activities in this space or to join the Standard of Conduct Working Group, please contact any member of the IRI Regulatory Affairs Team.
