A guide to help advisors understand the proposed Department of Labor changes to the fiduciary definition regulations.
The DOL’s proposed changes to the fiduciary definition regulations are causing financial advisors to re-examine their business models and to determine whether they may be a fiduciary to the plan and participants under the proposed regulations. These proposed changes will not only impact qualified retirement plans, but non-qualified plans too, such as IRAs. There could be major implications for how advisors will work with IRAs if these changes are implemented. This Practice Guide provides a framework to help advisors understand this issue by addressing the following questions:
What are the rules today?
What is being proposed?
How would some of the proposed changes impact an advisor’s practice?
Are there any action steps an advisor can take today in anticipation of the new rules?
