This section deals with the My Final Exam winning entry in the Journal of Financial Planning's Call for Papers. The National Association of Securities Dealers treated registered representatives like a cross between children and used-car salesmen, the average American financial planning consumer could get caught in a notoriously dysfunctional arbitration system, rules were in place based on function, and chief financial planner could never ever be a noun. The future world that executive Dan Moisand envisions in My Final Exam, a winning entry in the Journal of Financial Planning's Call for Papers, is a world in which the Financial Planning Regulatory Commission (FPRC) regulates planners, planners are most assuredly fiduciaries, the U.S. public has more choices than ever but not from among people pretending to be something they are not, no person can use the term financial planner without being registered with the FPRC and answering to its Code and Standards.
