Join The Movement – Sign The Petition To Promote Financial Markets Without Hidden Costs

“Your Silence Gives Consent” – Plato

Our Markets Have Hidden Costs

Despite what we are told by the industry and taught in school, our global stock markets are not fair or efficient and have substantial hidden costs. The accounting treatment of dividends and capital gains in our global stock markets causes the following:

  1. Securities trade at artificially inflated prices because security liabilities are treated as assets.
  2. Lowers the net worth of investors due to unjust taxation of income that was never earned.

Financial services firms are aware of and openly acknowledge these fundamental truths. Yet, despite their fiduciary duty to protect those who they serve, they are slow to use commercially available software to protect investors from these critical market structure flaws. We believe inaction is unacceptable and wrong.

Petition Demands

FairShares believes that investors deserve better!

By signing the petition we are collectively calling on global governments, financial services firms and their regulators to act in the best interest of their people and pursue the following objectives:

  • Our markets should not have hidden costs.
  • Securities should be priced fairly.
  • Protecting investors from losses is not “optional.”
  • Investors deserve and are legally entitled to real-time disclosure of hidden costs before committing capital so that they can manage their risk and evaluate alternatives.
  • Global securities regulators should immediately uphold and enforce all securities laws related to disclosure and transparency.
  • Global legislatures should take whatever steps necessary to ensure investors are treated fairly.
  • Global market structure providers, brokers/custodians, security issuers, and other financial services firms should immediately implement existing technology to protect investors from systemic losses and allow securities to trade for their fair value.

Your voice matters – let it be heard. These market structure problems are eroding the quality of your life in retirement. This is your money – keep more of what you earn.

By signing the petition you will become part of the Movement to create markets which are fair and efficient – without hidden costs.

Petition for Fair and Efficient Markets - with No Hidden Costs

We, the people, do hereby respectfully demand that global financial services firms, and their regulators, in pursuance of their legal fiduciary duty to protect investors, take all steps necessary to create a fair and efficient market - with no hidden costs.

The accounting treatment of dividends and capital gains in our global stock markets causes the following problems:
1) Securities to trade at inflated values because liabilities are treated as assets for accounting purposes.
2) Lowers the net worth of investors due to unjust taxation of income that was never earned.
This unjust taxation is a known risk that is referred to as “buying a dividend.”

We, the undersigned, believe that that global governments and their regulators should act in the best interest of their people and pursue the following objectives:
• Our markets should not have hidden costs.
• Securities should be priced fairly.
• Protecting investors from losses is not “optional.”
• Investors deserve and are legally entitled to real-time disclosure of hidden costs before committing capital so that they can manage their risk
and evaluate alternatives.
• Global securities regulators should immediately uphold and enforce all securities laws related to disclosure and transparency.
• Global legislatures should take whatever steps necessary to ensure investors are treated fairly.
• Global market structure providers, brokers/custodians, security issuers, and other financial services firms should immediately implement existing technology to protect investors from systemic losses and allow securities to trade for their fair value.

We, the undersigned, entrust our hard-earned money to global financial markets, and, in return, we demand a market that works for investors, not against investors. We demand the plight of investors no longer be ignored, and swift action should be immediately taken to protect investors from further harm.
