Adviser Advocacy Day

AdvocacyDay 2019

Making Advisers’ Voices Heard on Capitol Hill

The IAA invites advisory firm executives from across the country to join us in Washington, DC for our 12th Annual Adviser Advocacy Day on June 13, 2019. Participation is free – and the IAA will arrange personalized schedules for all participants to meet with their members of Congress and their staffs. We provide participants with talking points on key issues, as well as critical information about the economic value of our industry in the individual participant’s state and to the nation as a whole. Our government relations staff will brief participants on the issues in a special webinar in advance of Adviser Advocacy Day, and again in person on the morning of our Capitol Hill visits. And the evening before our Hill visits, the IAA Board of Governors will host a complimentary welcome reception and dinner featuring nationally known political and economic strategist Greg Valliere.

Key Advocacy Issues include:

  • restoring and expanding the deduction for investment advisory fees previously available to taxpayers
  • making owners of advisory firms eligible for the 20% tax deduction for pass-through businesses
  • passage of legislation requiring the SEC to consider how to ease the regulatory burdens on smaller advisers in any new rulemakings
  • sustaining a regulatory and economic environment favorable to advisers and their clients
  • ensuring federal law appropriately reflects the fiduciary obligations that differentiate advisers from broker-dealers and others in the financial services industry
  • maintaining the SEC’s primacy in investment adviser regulation and preventing encroachment by banking regulators, FINRA and individual states
  • preventing imposition on advisers of prescriptive, one-size-fits-all regulation
