About the Frankel Fiduciary Prize
The Institute for the Fiduciary Standard established the Frankel Fiduciary Prize to honor individuals who advance fiduciary principles. The Frankel Fiduciary Prize will be awarded annually to a person who has made significant contributions to the preservation and advancement of fiduciary principles in public life. The prize is named after Professor Tamar Frankel of the Boston University School of Law. You can learn more about Professor Frankel’s research on fiduciary law here.
The announcement of Ron Rhoades as the 2020 Prize Recipient occurred on August 28, 2020 via a press release, viewable here.
Remarks, also featured in Advisor Perspectives, were delivered by Ron Rhoades upon receiving the Frankel Fiduciary Prize on September 29, 2020. Bob Veres acclaimed these remarks, writing:
“By far the most important Advisor Perspectives article in the first half of October is the text of Ron Rhoades’ acceptance speech after winning the Frankel Fiduciary Prize. He lays out the failings of Reg BI and the proposed DOL rules, which invalidate actual centuries of legal and professional insights into the fiduciary standard—and goes on to talk about the difference between disclosing and avoiding conflicts, and a better regulatory structure for the planning profession.”
