What is Regulation Best Interest?

In addition to limiting their recommendations to investments that suit their investors’ needs, brokerage firms must also uphold a Duty of Care, the Conflict of Interest Obligation, and the Disclosure Obligation. These obligations and duties require brokerage firms to disclose conflicts of interest and, prior to recommending a security, research the market for investments that could offer similar benefits at a lower cost.
