XYPN advocates for consistent regulation of fee-for-service advisory model

As it launches a state lobbying initiative, one of XY Planning Network’s priorities is to convince states to take similar approaches to regulating the fee-for-service model that its 1,300 advisers use.

In addition to working on fee-for-service regulation, XYPN also will promote fiduciary advice policies at the state level as part of its lobbying program.
