Fiduciary capitalists, such as leading pension plans and en- dowments, can be in uential in aligning the interests of asset management rms with their clients. In the market connecting investment professionals with the information they need to meet client goals, we identify numerous con icts of interest, but nd little action has been taken by asset owners. Inter- est in the obscure practices surrounding the use of dealing commissions for research has heightened since 2014 due to regulatory scrutiny in the U.K. and the impending implementa- tion of the second Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID II) in Europe. The authors make recommendations to guide asset managers and asset owners through a complex information market during this time of dramatic change.
