Clarity

“Read This Extremely Important, Totally Incomprehensible, Completely Convoluted Information About Your Broker!” The Wall Street Journal, July 28, 2018 B1. Confusion over required SEC disclosures.

A four-page summary.  But will people read it?  Will most people read more than 4 bullet points?  Unless, of course, there’s a prize.

What value is disclosure if it is in language that the average person won’t read or won’t understand if he/she does?

Governance or Information?  And a pinch of Compliance?
