[Opinion]

8/8/2017: IRI Comment Letter to DOL on Fiduciary Rule and PT Exemptions (PDF) (Insured Retirement Institute [IRI])
43 pages. "[IRI appreciates] the opportunity to provide these comments to the [DOL] in response to [its recent] request for information ... 71 percent of advisers are planning to stop providing advice to at least some of their current small accounts due to the risk and increased costs of the Rule; 35 percent will stop serving accounts under $25,000, and 25 percent will raise their minimum account thresholds.... [D]istributor members reported that approximately 155,000 of their clients have already been 'orphaned,' with far more accounts expected to be impacted as implementation of the Rule proceeds.... More than 60 percent of the participating distribution firms have, are planning to, or are considering exiting or deemphasizing target markets such as small IRA holders and small retirement plan sponsors."
