SEC Takes Up the Fiduciary Mantle On-Demand

SEC Takes Up the Fiduciary Mantle On-Demand

Join Investments & Wealth Institute to examine “Regulation Best Interest” by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in an effort to craft a quasi-fiduciary duty for brokers providing retail investment advice. The SEC’s regulatory package, part of a broader effort to reassert leadership amongst various regulators in shaping the fiduciary standard for advice-givers, also includes a new disclosure form for broker-dealers and investment advisors to help differentiate business models, title restrictions for brokers, and potential new rules for investment advisors. In addition to providing an overview of these proposals, this program will review the Department of Labor’s recently updated non-enforcement policy for retirement advice as its own once highly controversial fiduciary rule fades into regulatory history.
