- President, TD Ameritrade Trust Company
Managing Director of Advisor Advocacy & Industry Affairs
TD Ameritrade Institutional’s own Skip Schweiss recently received the 2016 Insider’s Forum Leadership Award—reinforcing our position as a steadfast advocate for independent RIAs.
To ensure you get the most out of the meaningful work Skip does, we’re pleased to introduce his new blog series, Advocating for You. Here we will check in with Skip as he continues to give RIAs a voice in Washington, DC, and supports advisors throughout the country. We want to be sure you hear from him often, and have a way to connect with this great resource. It’s all for you.
The days are long, but a year is short
When the Department of Labor (DOL) released its Conflict of Interest Rule in April of this year, I began quite a road trip. There was a craving for information, and part of my role is to deliver it to you. RIAs have a year to prepare and the clock is ticking—so April through June, I traveled every week.
