8.26.2009 It has been reported that the U.S. House Financial Services Committee may hold a hearing in October 2009 on whether the investment adviser industry should have a self-regulatory organization (SRO). Other proposals affecting the advisory industry would likely be taken up at that hearing. Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) in the recent past has called for SRO oversight of investment advisers. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) officials have also discussed the concept in speeches.
