Scott Puritz, Managing Director of Rebalance – an award winning investment firm committed to offering premium, fiduciary wealth management services to every day investors – is available for comment on the Fiduciary Rule, Regulation Best Interest (BI) and the overall importance of consumer protections when it comes to investment advice and retirement planning.
Recent research by the Harvard Business School and National Bureau of Economic Research indicate that the Obama-era Department of Labor’s "Fiduciary Rule", while never implemented in its original form, has still proven incredibly effective at making investing and saving for retirement safer for all Americans. Per this recent research, a 10% decline in average expenses paid by investors can be directly attributed to the original version of the DOL Fiduciary Rule.
Scott Puritz is a nationally recognized retirement investing expert. He was the only financial advisor to testify in front of the U.S. Senate when the Fiduciary Rule was originally proposed. In addition, he has been quoted by the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, NPR, Forbes, CBS, PBS and USA Today.
At Rebalance, Scott has assembled infrastructure and service delivery methods that bring our clients sophisticated investment advice and the personalized treatment offered by exclusive wealth management firms, for a fraction of the cost. He received his B.A. in economics, with distinction, from Tufts University, and an M.B.A. from Harvard Business School. Scott is a registered Investment Representative and holds a Series 65 securities license. With his wife Susan of 32 years, he is an avid supporter of his two daughters’ forays into travel, sports, and music.
