NASD Regulation has proposed a rule to bar broker/dealers from paying registered representatives more for selling proprietary mutual funds than for selling funds offered by outside fund companies. The practice of paying representatives more for selling house funds can create a conflict of interest between representatives and their clients, NASDR said in issuing the rule proposal Sept. 2. NASDR members have until Oct. 29 to comment on the proposal. In June, NASDR officials said they expected to issue such a proposal to ban extra pay for proprietary sales this summer. (MFMN, 7/12/99)
