DOL Fiduciary Rule Compliance: IRAs, Rollovers, Investments, Issues for Advisers, Plan Sponsors, and Administrators

Strafford

Aug. 18, 2021
Recorded Online
Webinar

This CLE webinar will provide ERISA counsel and advisers guidance on the compliance challenges of the DOL fiduciary rule. The panel will discuss recent final DOL guidance for investment advice, issues stemming from IRAs and rollovers, exemptions, conflicts of interest, and more. The panel will also provide next steps for counsel and advisers, significant responsibilities faced by asset managers, plan providers, and sponsors, challenges in constructing a new compliance program under ERISA, and methods in maintaining compliance moving forward.

Description

New guidance from DOL on its interpretation of the definition of fiduciary in connection with providing investment advice creates risk that can significantly impact broker-dealers, investment advisers, insurance agencies, etc., raising a level of uncertainty in ensuring fiduciary compliance. Counsel and advisers must understand the challenges associated with the fiduciary rules under ERISA, recent DOL guidance for investment advice, and methods to ensure compliance.

Asset managers, plan sponsors, and providers that implemented programs to comply with the previous (now vacated) fiduciary rule continue to face significant responsibilities in reinstating prior ERISA and IRC compliance standards, as adjusted for new guidance. In addition, a recently finalized exemption and changes to DOL’s interpretation regarding the rules for investment advice impact considerations when making recommendations to rollover assets from an employee benefit plan to an IRA.

ERISA counsel and advisers must understand the rules applicable to fiduciaries, the challenges stemming from recent DOL guidance on the rules for investment advice, and methods to maintain compliance for asset managers, plan sponsors, and providers.

Listen as our panel discusses the recent DOL guidance on the rules for investment advice, issues stemming from IRAs and rollovers, exemptions, conflicts of interest, prohibited transaction considerations, and methods to ensure that policies and procedures comply with the fiduciary rules.
