Advisor Information


Michael LaVoy ChFC, CFP® on Fox News

Mr. LaVoy discusses debit card charges by banks in response to the Dodd-Frank Act.

The Law of Unintended Consequences

Earlier this year, our government passed, and Mr. Obama signed into effect a law (Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act) that capped the amount of fees banks can charge retailers. It was intended that retailers would lower prices, because they were paying less in interchange fees. Nice idea, not so good in practice.

*Experience and Employment History information reflects the past 10 years of employment as reported on the SEC ADV filing as of 09/29/2004, and is not a complete representation of the advisor's experience and employment history. Furthermore, the advisor is required to provide this information only while registered with an investment advisor firm and the information is not updated through Form U4 after the advisor ceases to be registered. Therefore, an employment date of "Present" may not reflect the advisor's current employment status.
