A reader survey conducted by the organization in December 2015 found that only 39 percent of advisors relied on wholesalers as their primary source of information about funds. The survey found that 63 percent of advisors used third-party research sites such as Morningstar as their primary resource for fund-related research. Thirty-two percent used fund company Web sites as their main source of information.
