The Great Fiduciary Debate: Will U.S. Brokers Be Held to a Fiduciary Standard?
Osler, Hoskin & Harcourt LLP Link to more items from this source
[Opinion]
Mar. 26, 2015

"[We] can't count on any regulatory changes actually coming into effect any time soon. What does this mean for plan fiduciaries? If they are following best practices, new rules will probably be a non-event because they will already be getting their investment advice from ERISA fiduciaries.... Plan committees don't need action by a government authority in order to hire these professional fiduciaries and protect themselves. If they all did so, this debate would be moot for 401(k) plans (IRAs may be a different story) because non-fiduciaries wouldn't be consulted."
