Los Angeles partner Fred Reish was quoted in a NAPA.net article titled “Undisclosed 12b-1 Fees: DOL Versus SEC.” The article features commentary from Fred’s blog, FredReish.com on undisclosed 12b-1 fees.

Fred notes that an investment adviser may only receive his or her stated fee, and that fiduciary rule prohibits the receipt of additional 126-1 fees for discretionary investment management, regardless of disclosures. He states that the fiduciary rule is more demanding than the SEC rules for discretionary investment management. Fred also discusses non-discretionary investment advice.
