I am involved in several not-for-profit OBA’s on a volunteer basis.
I agree with Raymond Ridgeway and Paul Krestanowich and that this level of scrutiny could reduce advisor’s interest in contributing back to the community that supports them.

While I’m in agreement that there are conflicts of interest that the regulators and dealerships need to know about, it is absolutely ridiculous when they start asking you about being a volunteer coach for your child’s minor hockey team. They need to find a better use of their time and resources!

This need to pry into the personal lives of advisors is unjustified and probably illegal, much like an insurance company wishing to know if you have ever been charged with an offence (illegal). They’re fishing, the sort of behaviour of over-preening and self-important busybodies. A better test is to demand of the advisor if he has any perceived conflicts of interest and provide a guide for his response. This country needs less intrusion, not more.
