This article reports that the International Board of Standards and Practices for Certified Financial Planners, adopted a new code of ethics in 1992 following three years of intensive debate. The most significant element of the code called for comprehensive disclosure before the client engagement, including method and sources of compensation. But the potential impact of the wording of this area on the fiduciary issue of the profession brought considerable attention from regulators and planners. Regulation of the mutual fund industry continued as a hot-button topic.
