Local Financial Advisor Advocates for Americans’ Access to Financial Planning and Advice
David Morders, CRPCÒ Travels to Capitol Hill to Speak with Elected Officials
Frederick, MD – David Morders, CRPCÒ of Key Financial Group, recently helped lead a grassroots effort on Capitol Hill with the goal of preserving Americans’ access to affordable, unbiased financial advice and protecting consumers. David met with several members of Congress, including Congressman John Delaney, and their staffs as part of the Financial Services Institute (FSI) team on February 28, 2013.
“Speaking directly with members of Congress was an invaluable experience,” said David Morders. “It was an opportunity for us to provide insight from our experience and daily interactions with our hard-working clients who are striving to achieve their financial goals. We were also able to educate them on what Americans need in terms of financial advice today and for retirement and how what Congress and the administration are doing affects their lives.”
“Our advocacy is only as effective as our members are engaged and energized,” said FSI President & CEO Dale Brown. “And conscientious advisors like David Morders help bring real-life experience to our efforts. Meetings like this allow lawmakers to hear directly from our members — true financial advisors who meet daily with Main Street Americans — about the issues impacting not only them, but also their clients.”
The independent financial advisor members of FSI serve more than 15 million American households. They are affiliated with independent broker-dealer firms who serve more than 160,000 independent financial advisors.
