Legacy of the DOL Fiduciary Rule

Meet us at American Funds Campus, 6455 Irvine Center Dr, Irvine

Doors open at 11:30 a.m. for check-in, lunch and networking.

  Our Presentation:

·       Major changes to investment advice and management prompted by the rule

·       Post revocation DOL rule considerations and best practices

·       What’s next? SEC standards of conduct, states fiduciary rules and DOL 2.0

The now-revoked Department of Labor fiduciary rule sparked a host of changes to how financial advisors work with plans as well as the available investment products.  Some of these changes have been walked back with the rule’s revocation while others are here to stay.  This presentation will discuss the legacy of the Department’s fiduciary rule, best practices given the changing landscape and the extent to which the fiduciary rule lives on in other rule makings.   

 Our speaker:
