17:20 – “I think one of the major things that they’re doing here as a part of this rule–or this rule proposal–is to bring the guidance that’s been scattered all over the place, within the text of the rule. So everyone knows where to find everything. It’s all accessible. That is something that everybody should welcome, right? Regulators should make the rules and make the guidance as accessible to everyone as possible.” – Issa Hanna
44:21 – “I just think that there is this misconception that the assets we’re talking about have to be the assets that they’re providing investment advice on. And it’s much broader than that, even under the current rule, so I think that’s something to look out for.” – Genna Garver
