DOL Reproposed Rules Governing the Definition of 'Fiduciary,' Part 2: The 'Best Interest Contract' Exemption
Mintz LevinLink to more items from this source
[Guidance Overview]
May 19, 2015

"[The Best Interest Contract (BIC)] exemption does not apply to advisers who advise on the selection on a menu of investment options.... The exemption exposes advisers and financial institutions to class action claims based on required warranties, which may involve an unacceptable level of risk.... The BIC exemption does not bar arbitration provisions as potential plaintiffs might have hoped, but it does ensure access to the courts for class actions. In the case of ERISA-covered retirement plans, this will likely mean access to federal court with limits on remedies.... The adviser must acknowledge, and will be subject to, fiduciary status. Accordingly, the adviser will be subject to ERISA-like standards, but remedies will not be limited in the case of IRAs."
